Comandante C40 Mk4 Nitro - Black

Our replacement top-end hand grinder couldn’t have been replaced by anything other than the best in the world.

Big words for a big grinder.

There isn’t anything on the market that comes near and for those budding coffee enthusiasts or competition-ready pros we got you covered.

The iconic Comandante® C40 is a robust, high performance grinder with an advanced and pioneering burr set: 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.
