COMES WITH A FREE BAG OF COFFEE (exclusions apply*)!
The Forté is the top-of-the-line grinder from our good friends at Baratza. We've tested every model of Baratza grinder and it's the only brand that we enthusiastically recommend for folks to use at home. The Forte is the grinder that we use at our cafes for pourover brewing, and it's also the grinder that Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters co-founders Trish and Nick use at their home!
It's not a cheap grinder, but that's because it's a full professional level grinder in a home-grinder body. The guts are upgraded to pro-level materials and build, and the grind-by-weight feature is a straight-up game changer.
The Forté comes in two versions:
- The Forté BG (brew grinder) comes with 54mm diameter flat steel burrs, and is optimized for coarser grind sizes, especially filter coffee brewing (drip, pourover, etc.). We also find it really great for coarser grinding for espresso as well, especially for medium to dark roasted coffee. If we were grinding our Pillow Fight Espresso to brew in an espresso machine, this would be our choice.
- The Forté AP (all-purpose) has 54mm diameter flat ceramic burrs, and is optimized for a finer grind for both espresso and filter brewing. The AP comes with a portafilter holder included (available separately for the BG model) as well.
Both Forté grinder models can grind coffee by time, weight (with an integrated scale), or manually on-off. Grind-by-weight is a very rare feature for coffee grinders at any price, and grinding a pre-set mass of coffee helps with both precision and minimizing waste.
