A grinder that can convince even the most stubborn coffee makers that grinding by hand is the right way, the Comandante is a great grinder everyone should want to buy. High-quality, well-designed grinding mechanism, consistent and precise grind setting and stylish, what more could you ask for? Having an outstanding grinding quality, Comandante is also very handsome with its ergonomic design. Not only are they enjoyable to use, they are also a modern piece of art in themselves. Here we will examine this wonderful equipment in detail with you.
Enjoy grinding with the Comandante C40
Okay, it's clear that it grinds perfectly. So isn't there more to it than that? Of course there is, and that's why we examined it in detail. Especially the Comandante C40 model is a revolutionary equipment in this regard. Oh sure, we looked at grind consistency, but we also looked at build quality, capacity, and other things to help you decide if it's the right choice for you. If you're curious about our overall assessment, let's share it as well.
Our average score is 4.5 out of 5, but why? Everything that should be perfect (as equipment) is perfect. But the price, the price is killing us, but what can we do… Now going to the rating, grinding consistency, burr quality, build quality and maintenance are 5 points, we are very clear on that. We gave the capacity 4 points. Portability is 4.5 and price is 3 of course, sorry Comandante…
The Comandante Grinder is a top-notch product with grinding consistency
The grinding capacity on the Comandante grinder is quite impressive. This grinder can grind fine enough even for Turkish coffee. At the same time, it has a mechanism that can grind coarsely enough for French Press. That's why it manages to get 5 points from us in terms of grinding consistency.
What do we say then? The Comandante grinder offers more accuracy and more choice for even the most discerning coffee drinker. Halal to you, big-hearted mill!
All of the mills are generally produced in one type. Minor updates have been made to the latest models. For example, a grinder called MKIII came out, of course, again the C40 model. In that product, for example, the grinder movement is softer and faster than the MKII. There are such differences. But both models are of course beyond great.
Even for expert baristas who grind espresso, they have a grinder that can be adjusted more precisely. In short, it offers more than enough choice for even the most discerning coffee drinker (including baristas and tasters). And with these options, accuracy on top of it!
All you have to do to adjust the grinding is; unscrewing the grinder holder and turning the knob at the bottom of the grinder mechanism. Another great feature of the Comandante grinder is that the grind setting remains consistent even when you remove and reinstall the grinder. So you can do a detailed cleaning without losing that sweet spot in your grinding setting.
Comandante coffee grinder could be the best in the world
When we look at the quality of the burr, we can say that it is extremely sharp. The Comandante coffee grinder, which is highly resistant to shaking, is definitely the best in the world. The center shaft of this great grinder is placed on double axle bearings to keep the burrs in place so that the grind is homogeneous and your coffee is great. There is no gram play in it, this thing is very solid!
The conical burrs in this hand grinder are small but quite strong. Thanks to its perfect sharpness, it cuts the coffee quickly. We can say that it processes and improves the burrs in hand grinding machines, perhaps more than its competitors.
In terms of build quality, we can say that it is definitely the best coffee grinder on the market. There are both metal and wooden options for the body of the mill. The handle is easily attached to the top of the mill. At the same time, there is a wooden knob made of 100% oak from Germany's Black Forest. That's pretty vintage. Its delicate production and handmade reveal its artistic features. The Comandante coffee grinder has officially brought the old-fashioned hand grinding method into the 21st century with its own style.
Don't be intimidated by the commandant's capacity
This great hand grinder has a slightly smaller capacity than other brands' hand grinders available. For example, Hario's products have different capacities. Comandante, which is similar in size to most models, seems to have left its competitors a little behind in terms of grinding capacity.
If you want us to give an estimate (-we tried), it will make about 4-5 cups of coffee, depending on your preference. So you can grind up to 40 grams of coffee. If you're brewing 7-8 cups of coffee at a time, it doesn't seem like ideal for you. But considering the compact nature of the grinder, it has quite a large capacity.
Comandante is also very convenient in terms of portability
As we just mentioned, the Comandante C40 is a very compact hand grinder. Its small size makes it very portable overall. But there are a few limitations. Firstly, it is slightly heavier than large capacity grinders. Weighing in at 740g, this grinder can be easily packed into a backpack or suitcase.
A second limitation is that the grinder is more fragile due to the steel and wood parts. We advise you to be careful when packing the glass piece.
The Comandante mill is very easy to maintain.
The maintenance of the Comandante mill is much easier than other grinders. It is not a problem to disassemble the grinder thanks to its simple elegance. As with similar manual hand grinders, you can clean it with a soft brush every month or so to remove any old coffee grounds that might get stuck.
As for the decision making part, Comandante is a masterpiece. It has extra-sharp, well-stabilized burrs with a variety of beautifully consistent grind settings. With its high-quality body, there are not many negative comments we can say about this grinder other than the price. As Kahvesozluk.com, which is among the brands that sell the product, we do not hesitate to interpret not only the good sides but also the bad sides, and now we are talking about the price.
Comandante is expensive for the price but is it worth it, worth it!
Yes, as we said in the title, Comandante is unfortunately expensive in terms of price. But for once, if you want it to be complete - as we think it is, then is it worth it! While we hope it finds a way to lower its price a little more in the years to come, we can assure you that this coffee grinder is a solid investment for great coffee every day. So believe me, it is very, very difficult to put a price on this equipment.
We recommend 5-10 clicks for the pitcher, 10-15 clicks for espresso, and 15-20 clicks for Bialetti and countertop coffee pots. For filter coffees, we recommend 22-32 clicks. 25-30 clicks for Cupping and French Press, 30-35 clicks for Karlsbad coffee machine. What about Aeropress? This is entirely up to you.
We call it Comandante for a perfect Turkish coffee. For a perfect cold brew, for filter coffee, for espresso, we definitely say Comandante C40. We call this grinder a true work of art and we make the point.
