Comandante Coffee Grinder
Luxurious manual coffee grinder
Grind your coffee with precision regardless of brewing method with Comandante, a robust high-speed coffee grinder with an advanced knife-set design. The sculptural, manual grinders are designed by and made for specialty coffee experts and connoisseurs. The German quality crafts are made from the finest materials. The fine-tuned geometry and texture of the Nitro Blade burrs gives incredible grinding performance. Making the burrs is a serious engineering job that requires specialized tools and machines, excellent craftsmanship and lots of experience. The blades are made of stainless steel and are very durable. The grinder provides an optimal particle distribution when grinding fresh specialty coffee such as arabica beans.
Comandante C40 Mk4
Comandante’s iconic C40 model has been updated to the C40 Mk4 version, available in multiple color-variants: Black, American Cherry, Cobolt, Grün and Burgundy. Thanks to some smart material science, reworked internals and an unbreakable polymer-glass Bean Jar, the Comandante C40 Mk4 offers improved workflow, weight, and durability. Every C40 Mk4 comes with one brown glass Bean Jar and one clear polymer-glass Bean Jar. Both are easy to clean and hold around 40g of roasted coffee beans. The Comandante coffee grinder weighs 600 grams. The transparent lid and base container shows what is left and what has been grinded. Comandante has click-based fineness adjustment which allows the user to repeat the exact same setting again and again.
The C40 Mk4 is designed to be set very precisely, so you can grind coffee by brewing method. Although the perfect setting varies from coffee to coffee, here are some starting points:
5-10 clicks to Ibrik.
10-15 clicks to Espresso.
15-20 clicks on a coffee pot with Bialetti or stove.
22–32 Click for filter coffee (depending on dose and machine).
25-30 clicks to Cupping and French Press.
30-35 clicks for a Carlsbad coffee machine.
Aeropress – depends on your recipe.
