Forte 1


The Forté is available with either steel or ceramic 54mm burrs, offering viable solutions for both brewed coffee and espresso grinding. Cafes that need a small grinder for decaf, single origin espresso, brew bar, or a backup should end their search here. Brewing at home? One of these Fortes is right for you.

Forte 2


Its muscly interior is operated by a touch-screen interface and 260 stepped adjustments, offering accurate and intuitive control of grind setting and, thereby, coffee extraction and flavor. Time- and weight-based programmable dosing allow for quick, repeatable results, so using the Forté in your shop won't slow you down.

Forte 3


This baby behemoth is built to last. The Forte's adjustment switches, portafilter holder, and entire enclosure are metal, so it feels sturdier than any of its predecessors — and it'll last longer, too. It's a true commercial-grade machine that won't disappoint in a café setting.

"Excellent grinder for the $. From past experience I knew that cheaper grinders are a waste. Very easy to use. Scale is accurate. Dialing in the grind was easy."

"I should probably be reviewing this in a year or two, but for the month we have had this grinder we have been very pleased. We have a small gourmet coffee bar and this Baratza is the perfect tiny workhorse we needed."

"I bought this so I could make my espresso and my wife could also make her drip coffee without having to make a ton of adjustments or special knowledge. It works perfectly."
