The Forté BG (Brew Grinder) is designed for manual (drip, pour-over, or presspot) brewing and comes with a 54mm flat steel burr and a grounds bin. The Forté BG is a compact, weight or time based dosing, commercial grade grinder, dedicated 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.

It is a durable workhorse featuring 54mm flat steel Swiss Ditting made burrs, which grind accurately and precisely, delivering exceptional cup quality batch, filtered, and manually brewed coffee. 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.
