The Baratza Forte BG grinder is a fantastic friend for the coffee explorer. The Forte is small and petite, so it fits seamlessly into a home coffee station or coffee shop. Actually, wonderfully as a primary grinder, or a secondary grinder, it will excel at any brew method thrown it's way.


The Forte BG offers the best of the best for multipurpose grinders. Various brew methods are easily dialled in, from your usual morning brew to your special once-in-a-while treat. Easily shifting between grind settings makes these results simply repeatable.

Baratza started with a simple mission in 1999. They wanted to create high-quality grinders to ensure the coffee is being freshly ground for optimal performance and enjoyment. Over 20 years since the creation of their first grinder, they are known for their innovations in the grinder for easy-to-replicate grinding and dosing.

The Forte BG is an easy-to-use multipurpose grinder. With its macro and micro adjuster it’s simple to change the grind size for many different brew methods. To help you not waste beans, the Forte AP comes equipped with three programmable grind times or change it over to 3 programmable grind weights, and the Forte will weigh out your grinds accurately to 0.5 grams. With specially designed burrs, this grinder will not produce as many fines as the coarser brew method.

In keeping true to Baratza’s mission, the Forte BG is incredibly easy to repair and maintain with accessible, affordable parts and a comprehensive troubleshooting guide.

How are the Forte AP and Forte BG different?

The Forte BG comes with the stainless steel burrs installed, which are designed for grinding coarser. The Forte AP comes with ceramic burrs installed which are designed for grinding fine enough for espresso and lasting longer.

Can I change the burrs over to the ceramic set?

It does take a bit of time, but the burrs can be changed. Understand that if you decide to install the ceramic burrs this grinder will be able to grind for espresso, but with coarser grinds there will be plenty of fines.

How much can you grind in a day on the Forte BG?

The Forte can handle light commercial use with the maximum amount of beans ground in a day capping out at 5lbs.
