Forté-AP Coffee Grinder


The Forté-AP is a compact, commercial grade grinder, dedicated to grinding for ALL brew methods for both the home and cafe. The Forté-AP (All Purpose grinder) can grind from coarse for french press to fine for espresso, and any pour over, drip, or aeropress in between. It comes with a 54mm flat ceramic burr, grounds bin for use when grinding by weight, plus an adjustable portaholder for use when grinding directly to your portafilter.

The AP features a beautiful and intuitive glass touch screen, solid micro/macro adjustment and is constructed of all metal -- giving it remarkable heft.  A unique feature of this machine is the ability to convert a dose from weight to time. You can grind by weight, toggle over with one click to see the precise time it took to grind, and then save the resulting weight as a timed measurement. 

The removable hopper has an innovative bean shutoff feature which makes changing out beans easy, mess-free and with very little bean waste. The hopper holds approximately 10 ounces (300g) of coffee, but a hopper extension is available that can add an additional 9 ounces (250g) of capacity.

This durable workhorse is powerful and quiet. It produces an accurate and precise grind, delivering exceptional cup quality for all brew methods.
