Baratza Forte AP

The Forte AP provides a compact design (only 14”H x 5”W) with an extremely powerful motor that tears through coffee at 2.5g per second. Giving you the option of both timed based dosing or weight based dosing, the Forte AP provides an easy to use touchscreen display with three programmable save settings. Includes both a portafilter fork and a grounds bin that allows you to grind whatever way you are most comfortable with.

Coffee Grinder




The Baratza Forte Grinder is capable of grinding coffee by weight and by time, combining the features that made the Vario and Vario-W popular into one machine. Having an accurate, consistent, and precise grind has never been easier.

The Forte also debuts Baratza's new bean hopper, which has 20% more bean capacity and a built-in bean stopper. The latter feature allows the hopper to be easily removed for the grinder, keeping the coffee beans inside nice and safe. This new hopper has complete backwards compatibility with the Vario and Vario-W; it can also fit Baratza's conical burr coffee grinders with some minor modification.
