High precision hand grinder with nitro blade burr set.

Handcrafted in Germany, the Comandante C40 Hand Grinder is a stylish, high performing precision tool coffee enthusiasts and specialty coffee connoisseurs have been waiting for! 

The C40 is fitted with an advanced burr set which is the result of dedicated research and development, refining the geometry and structure of the Nitro Blade the Comandante delivers the grind performance you are looking for. Whether you're brewing Turkish coffee or French Press, do it in style with one versatile, easily adjustable grinder!

Nitro Blade burr set
The Nitro Blade burr set is the ultimate performance choice. The grind result is extremely exact and very uniform with the least amount of coffee dust. Both ring and core are cut out of a solid block of high-alloyed, high-nitrogen stainless steel. This makes the Nitro Blade very sharp and strong with excellent edge retention and wear resistance. Nitro Blade is also extra non- corrosive and shows an excellent cut performance.

How does the Patented High-Alloyed High-Nitrogen Stainless Steel burr provide higher precision than other hand grinders ?
Bernd Braune, Founder of the Comandante grinder talks about why his burrs are the best on the market:

Our NITRO BLADE burr set is different from other burr sets in other hand grinders in a couple of ways. It is easier to grind your cup. You need less force (torque). You are done in less time. You get an awesome grind result and a cleaner cup. You get a super-sharp burr which will hold its blade edges longer. You get a stainless burr which makes it easy to clean and last longer. The haptical experience is noticeably smoother.

1.) It is made out of a very special stainless steel alloy which contains iron, chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, manganese, silicon, a little carbon … and nitrogen. The benefits are a far superior teeth sharpness, edge holding capability and an electro-chemical neutral surface property. The grind process with such a burr set gives you an enhanced particle generation, a favorite particle distribution and much less grind process oxidation, which is very important when you grind highly acidic light roast arabicas. A burr set build with this steel is able to grind salt as fine as baby powder with no oxidation damage to the metal.

2.) Most steel burr sets which are used in other hand grinders are standard burr set originally designed for electric espresso machines. The objective of those old burr designs was to quickly get a grind job done by a little electric engine for a shot of Italian coffee. An optimized particle distribution for a filter brewing coffee was not even on the agenda for those burr sets. Our burr design was developed for a modern hand grinder with an advanced grind performance and an elevated cupping experience in mind.

3.) The ergonomics and haptical experience using a hand grinder with NITRO BLADE is very pleasing. The bean throughput per turn at a moderate torgue value is 1. That means that with every turn one bean will be processed. That is pretty productive and at a moderate torgue rate of 2,8 Newtonmeter not difficult to archive.

4.) Higher precision grind result (for coffee techie) : If you look at the resulting particle distribution from a NITRO BLADE in detail, you will notice a much more narrow Gaussian bell curve and much smaller „dust“ occurrence. Why is that important? Because a narrow distribution curve around the targeted particle size represents a more precise grind result. Expert cuppers say that you experience a cleaner and more articulate cupping result.
