Bean Bros. Recommended hand grinder: Comandante C40 MK4 Nitro Blade
The Comandante C40 MK4 Nitro Blade is an amazing, precision grinding instrument. It has an advanced burr design giving it a serious level of consistency. This is the number 1 grinding tool we recommend here at Bean Bros.
Commander C40 MK4 Nitro Blade is the new version of one of the best hand coffee grinders in the world. The device offers a vast grinding range, steady operation and a sophisticated design with high-quality materials.
The MK4 version has several updates: A new engine frame shape, more robust material with higher capacity, and no trapped coffee beans!
Each grinder comes with one amber jar and one clear polymer jar. The latter is lightweight, durable and can be used as a mug! Revised packaging with improved protection.
Burr materials and design are the proud results of years of dedicated research and development at the on-site Commander® coffee laboratory. The Nitro Blade® has a unique design; it uses a high-alloy, nitrogen-rich stainless steel with a matrix of fine martensitic microcrystals. The geometry of the milling knives has been optimized to achieve excellent consistency with reduced crank torque while offering a refined particle size distribution for the best results.
The Comandante click system gives you complete control of each brewing method and locks in your preferred grind adjustment, so you can get the most out of your roasted coffee and repeat the results over and over again. This world-class grinding performance has made the Nitro Blade the weapon of choice for true coffee enthusiasts worldwide, from home baristas to World Cup Brewers Champions.
Stainless steel is the right choice to build a robust and food-safe coffee grinder. But also the body, the shaft, the crankshaft and the micro ball bearings. Comandante products do not contain aluminium. Where polymers can be used to improve performance, Comandante uses high-performance, BPA-free polymers that meet the most stringent food safety standards. These materials are designed to withstand years of heavy use.
Commander loves natural wood. The solid oak handles, made by friends in the Black Forest, are wonderfully ergonomic and beautiful to look at, thanks to the unique grain of the oak wood. These models with the classic and special coating use a robust powder coating baked at high temperature and not just painted.
Each Liquid Amber Comandante C40 MK4 comes with one amber glass bean jar and one clear polymer glass bean jar. Both are very easy to care for and can contain approx—40 g of roasted coffee beans. Weighing just over 600g, the C40's compact size and rugged nature, the world's best hand sander is your trusty companion whether you're at home or on an adventure out and about.

What are the different grind settings?
The Comandante hand grinder can grind to pretty much any level of coarseness. If you’d like to create a Turkish coffee, you need only turn the dial 5-8 clicks. For espresso, 8-12. For mokapot, 13-15. For filter, pour over, and aeropress, 20-28. For French press, 32-35. For cold drip and cold brew, 35 clicks.
How to clean the Comandante grinder?
It’s important that you never submerge the grinder in water or put it in the dishwasher. If the outside of the grinder becomes grubby, you can simply use a damp cloth to clean it. Every two weeks, you should also disassemble the grinder and use a brush to get rid of any leftover coffee grounds. Make sure you keep each part of the grinder safe as you are doing this, especially the two small washers. This keeps your coffee tasting fresh as there’s no stale grounds to pollute it.
