Baratza Forte Coffee Grinder

The Forté is a powerhouse grinder, capable of achieving a range of grinds from coarse to fine. It boasts a 54mm flat ceramic burr, along with a grounds bin for precise weight-based grinding and a portaholder for direct dispensing into your portafilter.

Crafted for commercial-grade performance in a compact form, the Forté is tailored to cater to all brewing methods. Its robust metal construction, space-saving design, user-friendly control panel, and versatile macro/micro adjustment make it an ideal fit for a range of commercial setups.

For added flexibility, the Forté-AP model offers the choice of grinding by time for precise espresso dosing or by weight, catering to the diverse needs of coffee professionals. It's a versatile companion, whether serving as a dedicated grinder in a small restaurant or office, acting as a demo grinder for roasters during wholesale tastings, or focusing on decaf or single-origin offerings in a café setting.

Equipped with a 54mm flat ceramic burr, the Forté is engineered to deliver accuracy and precision in grinding, ensuring exceptional cup quality across various brew methods, from espresso to press pot. We've taken the core of the Vario-W and reimagined it for robust commercial use. The Forté features a specially designed grinding assembly with a threaded burr holder that securely fastens into an all-metal grinding chamber, ensuring a consistently accurate grind.

With a higher gear-to-belt ratio and an enhanced DC motor, the Forté achieves a faster grind speed and supports extended periods of operation. This results in improved efficiency and performance, making it a durable workhorse for your grinding needs.


Intuitive Interface
The newly updated Display includes a small update to the software and looks. It also comes with newly installed Barista lights that will shine down into the grounds bin. The Forté 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.

Espresso Dosing
A unique feature of the Forte 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.

The Forté grinder comes with both 54mm ceramic flat AP burrs for accurate and precise grinding. The Forte grinds at an average of 2.0g/sec for espresso and 3.5 to 3.7g/sec for press pot. The 54 mm steel burrs that produce an accurate and consistent grind for a variety of manual and small batch brews. Our steel burrs were specifically designed to reduce the fines, enhancing flavour in the cup.

The broad range of grind (230 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle distribution (lack of fines) are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Forte-BG burrs.

Adjustment/Grind Range
An all-metal macro and micro adjustment system produce 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. These steps, plus the new metal detents, enable fine-tuning with ease, dialling in the exact grind for the preferred brew method being used.

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 (all weights are bean density dependent). A hopper extension is available that can add an additional 250g of capacity.

Re-Calibrating Burrs
The Forte is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Forte-AP burrs can be easily re-calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder

Cleaning Burrs
Burrs can easily be removed for cleaning using the cast zinc tool that is included with your Forte.


Hopper extender: An extension that can add 250g of capacity to the existing 300g bean hopper.  Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
