This compact, weight-based, commercial grade grinder is dedicated to grinding for manual or batch brewing. The Forté-BG (Brew Grinder) comes with a 54mm flat steel burr producing an accurate medium to coarse grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from french press to drip. The steel burrs were specifically designed to reduce the fines, enhancing flavor in the cup.
The BG features a beautiful and intuitive glass touch screen, solid micro/macro adjustment and is constructed of all metal — giving it remarkable heft. A unique feature of this machine is the ability to convert a dose from weight to time. You can grind by weight, toggle over with one click to see the precise time it took to grind, and then save the resulting weight as a timed measurement.
The removable hopper has an innovative bean shutoff feature which makes changing out beans easy, mess-free and with very little bean waste. The hopper holds approximately 300g of coffee, but a hopper extension is available that can add an additional 250g of capacity.
This durable workhorse is powerful and quiet. The steel burrs allow for a narrow particle distribution (lack of fines) and a broad range of grinds (500 microns to 1150 microns), delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from french press to drip.
- Warranty: Limited Warranty is 1 year or 50 hours of cumulative motor run time, whichever comes first.

Doserless grinders dispense coffee directly into the portafilter. When combined with a grind timer, this design improves coffee freshness, consistency and minimizes waste.
These grinders can eliminate the variable of how much coffee is ground by controlling grind time or grind weight. For espresso, once grind volume is set, simply adjust the grind gradually finer or courser to create that perfect 25 second 1.5oz espresso shot. Not only can this ease the learning curve and greatly improve consistency of espresso shots, it also improves cleanliness by letting you dispense exactly the amount of coffee you want.
Stepped adjustment is incremental with defined “clicks” to indicate changes. The size of the grind adjustment depends on the model, but some models offer nearly infinite adjustment for fine tuning espresso shots, while some offer easier all purpose adjustment between drip coffee, French press, etc. Visual markers for adjustment can simplify the learning curve with a chart of recommended settings for various brew methods.
