Coffee Roasters

We are passionate about our coffee. We source our beans through three importers direct from the farms and cooperatives, we roast them on-site, and we make each beverage to order. We do not offer flavors, syrups, smoothies, frappes, meal-type foods or most typical coffee shop drinks, but for good reason. We are very focused on the quality aspect of our coffees and want you to experience coffee for the passion, craft and art of it.  Coffee is the seed of a fruit and if its grown, processed, roasted and brewed properly,  the results will be amazing;  not bitter or burnt. Why cover up the good?  If your black coffee tastes bitter or burnt, you're drinking the wrong coffee, usually poor quality.  Pure and simple and without attitudes or snobbery we challenge you to Rethink Your Coffee.

INTRODUCTION

The Forté-BG (Brew Grinder) is designed for manual or batch brewing and comes with a 54mm flat steel burr and a grounds bin.

Forté -BG

The Forté-BG is a compact, weight-based, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for brew methods requiring a medium to coarse grind.  The Forté-BG incorporates many features that fit well into commercial operations, including: all metal construction; small footprint; intuitive control panel; and solid macro/micro adjustment. Coffee professionals have learned, from using the Vario-W in the brew bar setting, that weight-based grinding improved their workflow and efficiency. In response to the Vario-W success, and growing demand for this approach to grinding in the commercial environment, we have developed the Forté-BG.

The Forté-BG is a durable workhorse using a 54mm flat steel burr, which produces an accurate and precise grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for brew methods from Press Pot to Drip.  We re-designed the guts of the Vario-W for commercial use.  The Forté-BG design includes 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, combined with a more efficient DC motor, increases the speed of grind and duty cycle.

INTUITIVE INTERFACE

The Forté-BG allows you to dose by weight or time.  Our signature dose-by-weight is accurate to plus or minus .2 gram.  The touch activation awakens your screen with LED backlit technology.  The touch screen controls all operations with three programmable dose presets; Up or Down arrows to increase or decrease dose values; and TARE, MANUAL, START or STOP.

BURRS

The Forté-BG grinder comes with 54 mm steel burrs that produce an accurate and consistent grind for a variety of manual and small batch brews.  Our steel burrs were specifically designed to reduce the fines, enhancing flavor in the cup. The broad range of grind (500 microns to 1150 microns) and the narrow particle distribution (lack of fines) are the hallmarks of the superiority of the Forté-BG burrs.

ADUSTMENT/GRIND RANGE

An all-metal macro and micro adjustment system produces a positive feel and secure grind setting.  The macro-adjust moves from fine to coarse grinding in 10 distinct and repeatable settings. A secondary micro-adjust further divides each of the 10 macro steps into 26 distinct settings. These steps, plus the new metal detents, enable fine-tuning with ease, dialing in the exact grind for the preferred brew method being used.

HOPPER

The hopper holds approximately 300g of coffee.  An innovative bean shutoff feature in the collar permits no-mess, no-fuss hopper removal for changing out beans. Bean “waste” (below the stopper) averages a surprisingly low 10g, once the hopper has been shut off (all weights are bean density dependent). A hopper extension is available that can add an additional 250g of capacity.

RE-CALIBRATING BURRS

The Forté-BG is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Forté-BG burrs can be easily re-calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder.

CLEANING BURRS

Burrs can easily be removed for cleaning using the cast zinc tool that is included with your Forté.

ACCESSORIES

Hopper extender: An extension that can add 250g of capacity to the existing 300g bean hopper.  Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
