Forté Grinder Wins BEST NEW PRODUCT At SCAA!

April 19th, 2013 By joyce | Comments: no responses


We are thrilled to share the news that our launch of the new Forté grinder at the Specialty Coffee Association of America was so successful that on Sunday, April 14, 2013, it garnered us the award of “Best New Product—Coffee or Tea Preparation and Serving Equipment (Commercial) —SCAA 2013″.



We are very honored by this award and recognition from our industry. We developed this grinder to answer the need of Cafe Owners, Roasters, and Baristas who wanted a robust grinder that would grind by weight, accurately and repeatedly, in a commercial setting.

From the feedback at SCAA it sounds like we did it! The grinder will be available with either ceramic or steel burrs. We have named the steel burr version, the Forté-BG for Brew Grinder, as that burr set is the most successful at the medium to coarse grind for brewing.
