The Forté BG is a compact, weight-based, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for brew methods requiring a medium to coarse grind. The Forté BG incorporates many features that fit well into commercial operations, including: all metal construction; small footprint; intuitive control panel; and solid macro/micro adjustment. Coffee professionals have learned, from using the Vario-W in the brew bar setting, that weight-based grinding improved their workflow and efficiency. In response to the Vario-W success, and growing demand for this approach to grinding in the commercial environment, we have developed the Forté BG. The Forte BG is a durable workhorse using 54mm flat steel burr, which produces an accurate and precise grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for all brew methods including espresso, brewed or dripped coffees and press pot. We re-designed the guts of the Vario-W for commercial use. The Forté BG design includes a grinding assembly with a threaded burr holder which screws firmly into an all metal grinding chamber for a more accurate grind. A larger gear to belt ratio, combined with a more efficient DC motor, increases the speed of grind and duty cycle. INTUITIVE INTERFACE: The Forté BG allows you to dose by weight or time. The dose-by-weight is accurate to plus or minus. Touch activation screen with LED backlit technology. ADUSTMENT/GRIND RANG E: 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. These steps, plus the new metal detents, enable fine-tuning with ease, dialing in the exact grind for the preferred brew method being used. 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 (all weights are bean density dependent). All-metal macro and micro adjustment system. Speed to Grind: Aero press 1.2 g/sec, Press 2.4 g/sec. Burrs: 54 mm steel burrs by Ditting. Bean Hopper Capacity: 10 oz (300-400 g), depending on size & density of bean. Grounds Bin Capacity: 6 oz. Dimensions WxHxD cm: 13 x 36 x18 cm. Designed & Engineered: Seattle WA. The item “Baratza Forte BG Burr Coffee Grinder Authorized Reseller” is in sale since Saturday, July 26, 2014.
