C40 MK4 Nitro Blade®
The iconic Comandante® C40 is a robust, high performance grinder with an advanced and pioneering burrset: Nitro Blade®. And the new Mk4 generation just got even better!
Thanks to some smart material science, reworked internals and an unbreakable polymer-glass Bean Jar, the Comandante® C40 Mk4 offers improved workflow, weight, and durability.
Made in Germany.
The burr material and design is the proud result of years of dedicated research and development at Comandante®’s onsite coffee lab. Nitro Blade® is unique, using a high-alloyed, high-nitrogen stainless steel with a fine martensitic micro-crystal matrix.
Burr Geometry has been optimised to achieve excellent Bean Thruput with a reduced Crank Torque and at the same time deliver a refined Particle Size Distribution for best brewing results.
Comandante®’s click system gives you full control for any brewing method and locks your preferred grind setting into place, helping you get the very best out of your roasted coffee and repeat the results again and again. This world class grind performance has made Nitro Blade® the weapon of choice for true coffee enthusiasts around the globe, from home baristas to World Brewers Cup champions.
Every C40 MK4 comes with one brown glass Bean Jar and one clear polymer-glass Bean Jar. Both are super easy to clean and hold around 40g of roasted coffee beans. Weighing in at just over 600g, the C40’s compact size and robust nature means that whether you’re at home or off on an adventure, the world’s best manual grinder is your loyal companion.
Stainless steel is the right choice to build a robust and food safe coffee grinder. That is why not only the burr is made of stainless steel, but also the body, axle, crank and micro ball bearings.
Comandante® products are aluminium free.
Where polymers can be used to improve performance, Comandante® uses BPA-free high-performance polymers that meet the strictest food-safety standards. These materials are engineered to endure years
of heavy use.
Comandante® is crazy about beautiful wood.
New for 2022 we have hand-picked two outstanding examples to join our C40 Mk4 Nitro Blade® lineup — ‘Liquid Amber’ and ‘Virginia Walnut’.
For both Classic and Premium Wood models of our beloved C40 Mk4 Nitro Blade® grinder, we responsibly source trees from our local partners and carefully select the most beautiful pieces of timber for making our 100% natural veneers.
Reducing the timber to fine sheets of veneer is an amazing process because you discover the incredible natural patterns of the wood grain, which emerge on each slice. Every piece of veneer that we use on our C40 grinders is considerately chosen and carefully cut to size. Trees are such a valuable natural resource, so it’s not only important to responsibly source them, we feel it’s our duty to do every piece justice and make sure every grinder shows the beauty of the wood!
Our passionate crafts-men and women carefully laminate the veneer onto the stainless steel grinder body, before it is meticulously sanded and polished with a natural hard wax oil. The latter is repeated several times in order to get the desired smooth and shiny surface. It’s a particularly difficult process when you’re working with hard woods, but for us the result is totally worth it. This combination of the robustness of steel and the beauty and warmth of wood has always been at the heart of our design since the get go. It goes without saying that the visual effect is important. For us, the user’s tactile experience is absolutely crucial too. It’s a difference that you can see, feel, and even hear whilst grinding.
