The Forté is available in two configurations. The Forté-AP ('All Purpose') can grind from coarse to fine and comes with a 54mm flat ceramic burr, grounds bin for use when grinding by weight, plus a metal portaholder for use when grinding espresso directly to your portafilter. The Forté-BG ('Brew Grinder') is designed for manual (drip, filter, or presspot) brewing and comes with a 54mm flat steel burr and a grounds bin.

The Forté AP is a compact, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for ALL brew methods. The Forté AP incorporates many features that fit well into commercial operations, including: all metal construction; small footprint; intuitive control panel; and solid macro/micro adjustment. The Forté AP offers the ability to grind by time, for espresso dosing, or by weight. Coffee professionals find the Forté AP to be a versatile grinder for many situations – a small restaurant and office espresso/brew grinder, a roaster's demo grinder for wholesale tasting, or being a dedicated grinder for decaf or single origin in a café.

The Forté AP is a durable workhorse using a 54mm flat ceramic burr, which produces an accurate and precise grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from espresso to press pot. The Forté AP 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.
