Baratza Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder (Black)
FORM + FUNCTION - The Forté AP is a dependable all purpose grinder, offering exceptional cup quality for home or light commercial use with the unique ability to grind by weight or by time.
The Forté AP is our commercial level grinder, the go-to for many cafes and bars offering customers a rotating selection of their best coffees. Good fit as a single origin/decaf espresso grinder.
The grinder has a compact body with cast metal construction and offers a high daily grinding capacity (up to 5lbs/day), plus an intuitive control panel with 3 programmable settings for repeatable dosing. Included with every Forté are a shut-off hopper, a burr removal tool for easy cleaning, and a simple burr calibration tool for quick calibration.
The Forté AP comes with ceramic burrs and has 10 macro/26 micro settings for a total of 260 steps of adjustment for any style of coffee.
While using the included portafilter holder accessory, you can grind by time, giving you convenient coffee delivery directly into a portafilter, as well as reduced mess thanks to a funnel which guides coffee grounds into the basket.
Most small, consumer appliances are designed to wear out, or stop being useful in a very short time. These appliances are difficult and expensive to repair, so consumers are trained to dump and replace which has big environmental implications. In contrast, we’ve purposefully designed Baratza grinders to be maintained like commercial grinders and maximize their value. With regular cleaning, maintenance, repair, and even rebuilds our grinders can give an excellent, accurate grind for many years.
