The Forté BG’s steel flat burr is precision-milled in Europe and delivers the exacting precision required to extract balanced, delicious cups of coffee with high clarity of flavor. Every macro setting is subdivided by 26 micro adjustments. That means pinpoint accuracy is no longer a moonshot, it’s just a few clicks away.
The Baratza Forté BG is designed with filter brew methods in mind. It features stainless housing, setting sliders adjustable across micro steps, commercial components, and touch screen operation.
Like the Vario-W, it’s capable of dosing based on weight, thanks to the integrated scale in its base, though, the Forté BG doesn’t stop there. It’s also capable of dosing based on time.
The motor in the Forté BG is a big upgrade to the Vario; it’s 70% more powerful and can run twice as long. This powerful motor turns slowly, generating less heat and noise as a result, and is equipped with a thermal cut-off switch that automatically resets itself in the case of overheating. To handle the increased power, the Forté BG has been outfitted with a new drive ratio, pulley, and belt-drive system to help it keep up in a commercial environment. Whether atop a home or cafe kitchen, the Forté BG delivers batch after batch of consistently ground coffee however you prefer.
Using the Forté BG is a breeze. Its intuitive touchscreen display allows you to choose from manual, time or weight-based grinding, which accurately dispense grounds within 1/10th of a second or +/- 0.2 grams. Using the touchscreen display, it couldn’t be simpler to switch between time and weight-based brewing, or program the three presets available for each method. Or, of course, you can always grind manually, too.
