Pre Order - Baratza Forte Coffee Grinder

Can be bought on Pre Order - Two Weeks Lead Time

The Forté AP (All Purpose grinder) is a compact, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for ALL brew methods.

Designed as a commercial solution for low-volume cafes, the Forté AP is a rock-solid espresso grinder with high-capacity and feature-density. Operated by a touch screen, the Forte AP has two grind modes: by time and by weight. Each of those modes carries three presets and a manual option, giving you plenty of ways to conveniently switch from one dose to another.

Features

  • The Forté–AP allows you to dose by weight or time. Our signature dose-by-weight is accurate to plus or minus .2 gram. The touch activation awakens your screen with LED backlit technology. The touch screen controls all operations with three programmable dose presets; Up or Down arrows to increase or decrease dose values; and TARE, MANUAL, START or STOP. Max programmable dose is 120g.
  • The Forté-AP grinder comes with 54mm ceramic flat burrs for accurate and precise grinding. The Forté-AP grinds at an average speed of 2.0g/sec for espresso and 3.5 to 3.7g/sec for press pot. The range of grind is 230 to 1150 microns.

More Information

Espresso Dosing - A unique feature of the Forté–AP is the ability to convert a weight preset into a timed value that is accurate within plus or minus .5 grams of the set point. This allows for weight oriented dosing for espresso.

Hopper - The hopper holds approximately 300g of coffee. An innovative bean shutoff feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for changing out beans. Bean “waste” (below the stopper) averages a surprisingly low 10g, once the hopper has been shut off.

Adjustment/Grind Range - An all-metal macro and micro adjustment system produces a positive feel and secure grind setting. The macro-adjust moves from fine to coarse grinding in 10 distinct and repeatable settings. A secondary micro-adjust further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 26 distinct settings.
