Baratza Forté AP


Weight-based dosing is the most accurate and repeatable way to make the most of every cup, at home, work or in light commercial settings.

The Baratza Vario W Flat Ceramic Burr Grinder combines an extremely precise, and fully integrated real-time weighing system with an advanced ceramic flat burr mechanism that delivers unbeatable range and consistency. With 10 Macro-adjust settings, and 20 Micro-adjust settings within each, the compact Vario Series grinders offer an impressive 230 distinct grind sizes that baristas and the discriminating home palette needs to accommodate any bean and any brew method. And the 54 mm professional ceramic flat burrs produce an exceptionally even grind with minimal fines, and will retain sharpness for twice as long as the highest quality steel burrs. The Vario W grinds at a rate of 1.6 – 2.2 grams per second (depending on the grind setting) and deposits directly into the included 6.3-oz static dispersing grinds container. You just enter the weight desired on the simple LED interface, or you can select from the 3 programmable buttons, and then push “start”. The Vario W’s scaling system is accurate to within 2 tenths of a gram, so locking in and duplicating the perfect grind and dose is a snap! Vario Grinders are also designed to minimize build-up in the mechanism after each use. But when you want to brush it out, you can neatly remove the 8-oz bean hopper (even when full), and quickly remove the ceramic burr by hand (no tools required) in less than a minute! The Vario W is a great choice for the coffee perfectionist at home, an office setting, or for light commercial cafT use. The Baratza Vario W Flat Ceramic Burr Grinder is backed by a manufacturer’s 1-year warranty and measures only 5″ l x 7″ w x 14″ h. All Baratza burr grinders include a quick-start guide and web address for a downloadable full owner’s manual. Features of the Baratza V.


The Forté AP (All Purpose grinder) is a compact, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for ALL brew methods. Designed as a commercial solution for low-volume cafes, the Forté AP is a rock-solid espresso grinder with high-capacity and feature-density. Operated by a touch screen, the Forte AP has two grind modes: by time and by weight. Each of those modes carries three presets and a manual option, giving you plenty of ways to conveniently switch from one dose to another. Grind by weight on the Forté does not work with the included portafilter holder accessory, though in exchange you get convenient coffee delivery into a portafilter as well as reduced mess thanks to a funnel which guides coffee grounds into the basket. This machine is a great choice for highly consistent espresso at home, although it’s better suited to commercial use. If you have dreams of opening a coffee shop, the Forté AP can help make those dreams come true. Its small footprint, multifunction touch screen, high daily capacity (5lbs per day) and sturdy grind size adjustments make the Forté AP a great choice for low-volume espresso in the café like decaf or single-origin offerings. It is built with 54mm flat ceramic burrs, engineered to produce an accurate and precise grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from espresso to French Press. Included with every Forté are a shut-off hopper, a burr removal tool for easy cleaning, and a simple burr calibration tool for quick QC calibration. “Pillowy grinds and pillow talk – this grinder will wake you up in the morning and keep you up all night.
