The Forté AP is a compact, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for ALL brew methods. The Forté AP incorporates many features that fit well into commercial operations, including: all metal construction; small footprint; intuitive control panel; and solid macro/micro adjustment. The Forté AP offers the ability to grind by time, for espresso dosing, or by weight. Coffee professionals find the Forté AP to be a versatile grinder for many situations – as a small restaurant and office espresso/brew grinder, as a Roaster demo grinder for wholesale tasting, or being a dedicated grinder for decaf or single origin in a café.

Features 

  • INTUITIVE INTERFACE ​​​​​​​

The Forté allows you to dose by weight or time. The touch activation awakens your screen with LED backlit technology. The touchscreen controls all operations with three programmable dose presets; Up or Down arrows to increase or decrease dose values; and TARE, MANUAL, START or STOP.

 

  • ESPRESSO DOSING ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

A unique feature of the Forté is the ability to convert a weight preset into a timed value that is accurate within plus or minus .5 grams of the set point. This allows for weight oriented dosing for espresso.

 

  • BURRS

The Forté grinder comes with 54mm ceramic flat burrs for accurate and precise grinding. The Forté grinds at an average of 2.0g/sec for espresso and 3.5 to 3.7g/sec for press pot.  The range of grind is 230 to 1150 microns.

 

  • ADJUSTMENT/GRIND RANGE

An all-metal macro and micro adjustment system produce a positive feel and secure grind setting.  The micro-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, dialling 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 is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Forté-AP 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.
