Comandante® is crazy about beautiful wood.
For these Premium Wood models of our beloved C40 Mk4 Nitro Blade® grinder, we responsibly
source trees from our local partners and carefully select the most beautiful pieces of timber for
making our 100% natural veneers.
Reducing the timber to fine sheets of veneer is an amazing process because you discover the
incredible natural patterns of the wood grain, which emerge on each slice. Every piece of veneer
that we use on our C40 grinders is considerately chosen and carefully cut to size. Trees are such a
valuable natural resource, so it’s not only important to responsibly source them, we feel it’s our
duty to do every piece justice and make sure every grinder shows the beauty of the wood!
Our passionate crafts- men and women carefully laminate the veneer onto the stainless steel
grinder body, before it is meticulously sanded and polished with a natural hard wax oil. The latter
is repeated several times in order to get the desired smooth and shiny surface.
It’s a particularly difficult process when you’re working with hard woods, but for us the result is
totally worth it. This combination of the robustness of steel and the beauty and warmth of wood
has always been at the heart of our design since the get go.
It goes without saying that the visual effect is important. For us, the user’s tactile experience is
absolutely crucial too. It’s a difference that you can see, feel, and even hear whilst grinding.
The iconic Comandante® C40 is a robust, high performance grinder with an advanced and pioneering burr
set: Nitro Blade®. And the new Mk4 generation just got even better!
Thanks to some smart material science, reworked internals and the addition of a basically unbreakable
polymer-glass Bean Jar, the Comandante® C40 Mk4 offers improved workflow, weight, and durability.
Made in Germany.
The burr material and design is the proud result of years of dedicated research and development at
Comandante®’s onsite coffee lab. Nitro Blade® is unique, using a high-alloyed, high-nitrogen stainless steel
with a fine martensitic micro-crystal matrix.
Burr Geometry has been optimised to achieve excellent Bean Thruput with a reduced Crank Torque and
at the same time deliver a refined Particle Size Distribution for best brewing results.
Comandante®’s click system gives you full control for any brewing method and locks your preferred grind
setting into place, helping you get the very best out of your roasted coffee and repeat the results again
and again. This world class grind performance has made Nitro Blade® the weapon of choice for true coffee
enthusiasts around the globe, from home baristas to World Brewers Cup champions.
Every C40 MK4 comes with one brown glass Bean Jar and one clear polymer-glass Bean Jar. Both are super
easy to clean and hold around 40g of roasted coffee beans. Weighing in at just over 600g, the C40’s
compact size and robust nature means that whether you’re at home or off on an adventure, the world’s
best manual grinder is your loyal companion.
Stainless steel is the right choice to build a robust and food safe coffee grinder. That is why not only the
burr is made of stainless steel, but also the body, axle, crank and micro ball bearings.
Comandante® products are aluminium free.
Where polymers can be used to improve performance, Comandante® uses BPA-free high-performance
polymers that meet the strictest food-safety standards. These materials are engineered to endure years
of heavy use.
Comandante® loves natural wood. The solid oak handles, produced by friends in Germany’s Black Forest, are
both wonderfully ergonomic and beautiful to look at thanks to oak’s unique grain structure.
For the Classic and Premium Wood models, Comandante® craftsmen laminate a thin layer of beautiful wood
onto the stainless steel body, before waxing and polishing it with meticulous dedication.
The Classic and Special Coating models use a robust and sleek powder coating – baked on at high
temperature, not just painted on. Both body surfaces give you a solid grip for serious crank action.
