A compact, weight-based, business grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for brew approaches needing a medium to coarse grind. The Forté-BG integrates numerous functions that fit well into industrial operations, consisting of: all metal construction; little footprint; instinctive control panel; and strong macro/micro adjustment.
A resilient workhorse utilizing a 54mm flat steel burr, which produces a accurate and precise grind, providing remarkable cup quality for brew approaches from Press Pot to Drip.
The Forté-BG design consists of 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, integrated with a more effective DC motor, increases the speed of grind and duty cycle.

BURRS: The Forté-BG grinder features 54 mm steel burrs that produce a constant and accurate grind for a range of manual and small batch brews. Our steel burrs were specifically created to decrease the fines, improving flavor in the cup. The broad variety of grind (500 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle circulation (absence of fines) are the trademarks of the superiority of the Forté-BG burrs.

ADUSTMENT/GRIND RANGE: An all-metal macro and micro modification system produces a favorable feel and secure grind setting. These steps, plus the new metal detents, enable fine-tuning with ease, dialing in the precise grind for the preferred brew approach being utilized.

An innovative bean shutoff feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for altering out beans. Bean “waste” (below the stopper) averages a remarkably low 10g, as soon as the hopper has been shut off (all weights are bean density reliant).

RE-CALIBRATING BURRS: The Forté-BG is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If essential, the Forté-BG burrs can be quickly re-calibrated utilizing the special calibration tool that has the mill.Forté-BG Brew Grinder
