Baratza Forte

The ultimate Baratza grinder that features revolutionary in-built grind by weight functionality.

The Baratza Forte is the ultimate Baratza grinder. Using flat burrs, the Forte produces an incredibly accurate grind. Genuinely innovative, its ground-breaking ‘grind by weight’ feature called: Smart Dose allows you to weigh your dose and accurately convert it to time. The Forte features metal construction, a small, lightweight footprint, an intuitive control panel and solid macro/micro adjustment. This machine is the most adaptable, multi-purpose grinder on the market and will suit any espresso and manual brew needs you have for your home. In addition to its all-purpose ceramic burrs, all Baratza Forte grinders sold in Australia will come with a set of steel burrs (which are specifically designed for filter coffee grinding) and a portaholder.

The charge for a Baratza Forte to be delivered anywhere in Australia is $20. As the Baratza Forte is 6kgs and therefore over the maximum weight of a 5kg overnight shipping bag, this product cannot be shipped on priority overnight delivery. Expect your Baratza Forte to arrive via road transport within 3-5 business days. Please also be aware that ‘Authority to Leave (ATL)’ is not an option with this product. You will need to be home to take delivery and you will need to sign for it. If you are not home Toll will leave a card with details so you can call them to arrange re-delivery at a more appropriate time or you can arrange to pick up from their depot.
