Baratza Forté BG
The FortT series is the pinnacle of Baratza’s impressive line-up, and the BG (Brew Grinder) Flat Steel Burr Grinder model certainly does not disappoint! This commercial grade machine, though compact with just a 5″ x 7″ footprint, has a substantial and very durable feel thanks to the sleek, brushed, cast zinc body. And inside the gorgeous exterior, it’s designed with a larger gear-to-belt ratio and fitted with a more efficient DC motor to power the Ditter built, 54 mm flat steel burr assembly. It also features an all metal grind adjustment system, with a 10-step Macro arm and 26-step Micro arm for an awesome range of grind sizes from 230-1150 microns. The “Brew Grinder” designation within the FortT Series indicates that this model is slighter more oriented to the coarse side of the grind spectrum, and is capable of producing a deliciously gravel-like press-pot grind, the BG has plenty of range to provide the espresso drinker with lots of grind choices. Oh, And did we mention that you can easily toggle between weight-based and timer-based dosing? Well, you can…and it’s simple. The most notable thing about the Forte series may be the incredible ease of use provided by the LED touch-screen interface. Want to dose by weight? Tap the on-screen “weight” button, enter the amount, hit start. Want to replicate the timed espresso grind you made yesterday? No problem. Set the macro and micro, tap the on-screen “time” button and enter the time. And when you hone in on the perfect dose for a shot of ristretto or an 8-cup pot of French press (or any other brew that suits you), you can set it by time or weight to one of the three programmable on-screen buttons. The BG grinds with extreme precision and doses to within 0.2 grams or 0.1 seconds so consistent replication is easy for enthusiasts at home, an office full of professionals, or for baristas in a commercial setting.
