The Forté series is the pinnacle of Baratza's impressive line-up, and the BG (Brew Grinder) Flat Steel Burr Grinder model certainly does not disappoint! This commercial grade machine, though compact with just a 5" x 7" footprint, has a substantial and very durable feel thanks to the sleek, brushed, cast zinc body. And inside the gorgeous exterior, it's designed with a larger gear-to-belt ratio and fitted with a more efficient DC motor to power the Ditter built, 54 mm flat steel burr assembly. It also features an all metal grind adjustment system, with a 10-step Macro arm and 26-step Micro arm for an awesome range of grind sizes from 230-1150 microns. Oh, And did we mention that you can easily toggle between weight-based and timer-based dosing? Well, you can...and it's simple.
The most notable thing about the Forte series may be the incredible ease of use provided by the LED touch-screen interface. Want to dose by weight? Tap the on-screen "weight" button, enter the amount, hit start. Want to replicate the timed espresso grind you made yesterday? No problem. When you hone in on the perfect dose for a shot of ristretto or an 8-cup pot of French press (or any other brew that suits you), you can set it by time or weight to one of the three programmable on-screen buttons. The BG grinds with extreme precision and doses to within 0.2 grams or 0.1 seconds so consistent replication is easy for enthusiasts at home, an office full of professionals, or for baristas in a commercial setting.
The BG will not dose directly into a portafilter, instead it grinds directly into the included 6.3 oz static-dissipating container, for easy transfer into any brewing apparatus. Baratza also includes a cast zink tool that twists the burr assembly free for cleaning and even a recalibration tool, just in case you should want to use it in the future. Baratza backs the Forté BG for residential and commercial use with a limited warranty for a period of 1-year, or 50 hours of cumulative motor run time, whichever comes first. Measures 5" l x 7" w x 14" h.
