The Forte ‘AP allows you to dose by weight or time. Our signature dose-by-weight is accurate to plus or minus .2 gram. The touch activation awakens your screen with LED backlit technology. The touch screen controls all operations with three programmable dose presets; Up or Down arrows to increase or decrease dose values; and
TARE, MANUAL, START or STOP.
A unique feature of the Fort歉 ‘AP 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.
The Forte-AP grinder comes with 54mm ceramic flat burrs for accurate and precise grinding. The Fort歉-AP 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.
An all-metal macro and micro adjustment system produces a positive feel and secure grind setting. The macro-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.
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.
The Forte-AP is calibrated at the factory to ensure an accurate range of grind. If necessary, the Forte-AP burrs can be easily re-calibrated using the special calibration tool that comes with the grinder
Burrs can easily be removed for cleaning using the cast zinc tool that is included with your Forte.
Hopper extender: An extension that can add 250g of capacity to the existing 300g bean hopper. Several extenders can be added to get to the capacity you need.
