Now even better
The latest generation MK4 of the popular C40 from Comandante builds on everything that made its predecessors modern classics and pioneers in the field of premium hand mills. The very precise Comandante®Nitro Blade® grinder made of special steel, which sits on two ball bearings in the food-safe stainless steel housing, ensures that the grinding of fresh coffee at the highest level is very easy by hand. Compared to the third generation, the suspension of the upper bearing axle has been revised. It is now even more robust and shaped in such a way that no beans can block the insertion of the crank. In addition, one of the two enclosed grist containers was changed from glass to an extremely shatterproof plastic.
Adjustment of the degree of grinding with the click system
The adjustment of the degree of grinding works with the C40 MK4, just like with older generations of the C40, via the click system. The nut that connects the grinding cone to the axle engages twelve times per rotation. By counting these clicks, starting from the closed state of the grinder, each degree of grinding can be set precisely and found again later. The indication of "comandante clicks" is widespread to communicate grinding degrees in recipes and preparation recommendations. In general, the following clicks are recommended for the different brewing methods:
- 8 clicks = Cezve/ Ibrik
- 8 - 15 clicks = espresso
- 13 - 16 clicks = Mokapot/ Bialetti
- 17 - 19 clicks = Aeropress
- 20 - 25 clicks = hand filter (V60, Chemex)
- 20 - 28 clicks = French Press
Stylish design and compact construction
The Comandante C40 MK4 Blade Sunset is not only technically in the top league. Its timelessly simple design and the use of high-quality materials make the hand coffee grinder a noble design object. The combination of the hand knob made of oak wood and the powder-coated stainless steel housing in the new shade of sunset looks very natural and warm. The dimensions of the grinder and the removable crank combine a good feeling in the hand with the option of taking the coffee grinder with you on the go.
