"After working in specialty coffee for 17 years, I've gotten rather picky with my home setup. I wanted a grinder that could grind and hold up like a commercial/cafe grinder but would sit on my countertop. I needed to look no further."

Need to Know

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 10 ounces (300g) of coffee, but a hopper extension is available that can add an additional 9 ounces (250g) of capacity.
