Sporting a stainless steel body wrapped in a thin wood veneer (treated with a natural wax oil), an oak wood handle (from the Black Forest), and a glass grounds container, the Comandante C40 MKIII hand grinder is particularly attractive.

But the attention to detail doesn't stop with the beautiful aesthetics. On the inside, you’ll find a stainless steel axle, crank, and micro ball bearings, as well as high-nitrogen martensitic steel burrs, which are highly resistant to pitting. These burrs are strong, sharp, and said to be perfect for other use cases, including grinding pepper and tea.

The Comandante C40 is capable of grinding for anything from Turkish to French press. Adjusting the grind is easy: simply remove the glass grounds bin and turning the plastic knob while holding the handle in place. It has stepped grind adjustment, giving you the ability to count clicks, after zeroing out the burrs, allowing you to easily return to the same grind size.

When beautiful design and detailed engineering come together, it’s explosive. Water can’t put out those kinds of fires. But seriously, if you get the Comandante C40 MKIII hand grinder, don’t dump buckets of water on it.

Having used a few lower

Having used a few lower price point grinders (hario, porlex, etc), as well as the Lido E, I‰Ûªve found the Comandante requires the least amount of effort and adjusting the grind is very straightforward as well. Love the functionality and design, very happy with the purchase.
