Comandante C40 Mk4 Hand Grinder
Comandante offers not only a durable high quality product, but an incredibly intuitive precision instrument to grind coffee at an exact setting and still be compact enough to take on the go.
This grinder is built with the highest quality materials and offers a truly stunning visual aesthetic all while being one of the most precise portable hand grinders on the market.
Recently Comandante have released this grinder as the newest edition from its previous MK3 Hand Grinder.
Some of the updates for this new MK4 grinder include:
New Jar made from a high quality BPA-Free Clear Polymer, these jars are incredibly durable and lightweight. These are the same dimensions of the MK3 and can still hold approximately 40 grams of roasted coffee. (Please note that the dimensions are the same and can be switched out with older MK3 jars)
Lightweight, Overall the new MK4 Comandante Grinders are around 600 grams and have had its weight reduced due to the Polymer Jars and the new designed internal structure.
Wood sourcing, Comandante now source their wood sustainably for all their wooden outer body grinders.
New Internal structure, to prevent wastage and beans trapped inside the axel / crank connection point.
The 39mm burrs are made from High-Alloyed, High-Nitrogen Stainless Steel (Insanely tough and designed to last)
The Natural Oak wooden handle compliments the body of the grinder which is wrapped in an oiled wooden veneer offering a textured surface to prevent slipping while in action as well as offering an individually unique pattern for every product.
The double axle bearings create a smooth enjoyable rotation that makes grinding super easy and quick. Just like other hand grinders you will know when you have finished grinding your dose when you start to feel less tension on the crank. Comandante grinders are easy to disassemble and super easy to clean.
The 2x jars included are designed to screw into the base of your grinder and collect the ground coffee but they are also a perfect coffee storage solution, especially when traveling for a day trip. These multi-purpose jars also happen to be the perfect diameter for when transferring freshly ground coffee into your AeroPress / AeroPress Go chamber.
The stepped dial located underneath the grinder is standard across the entire Comandante range. This allows you to communicate with any other Comandante grinder owner and share recipes so that you can both get the exact same grind size and follow the same recipe accurately even when you are on the other side of the world. It also has the coarser/finer direction etched into the burr set, which makes it super easy to adjust your grind size.
