We're absolutely thrilled to be stocking this incredible little grinder. As you'll no doubt be bored of hearing us saying, it really is all about the grind and we think that this little beauty is quite simply the best value hand grinder on the market today.
The engineering is quite simply exquisite. The skill, attention to detail and craftsmanship that goes into making these tools is a real joy to behold and not as common as it should be.
Famous for their unique and proprietary burr design, Comandante are also known for excellent build quality and phenomenal particle size consistency. Able to grind for espresso all the way through to french press, it is as versatile as it is satisfying to hold. Now, we wouldn't recommend that you use this (or any hand grinder) for permanent espresso duties. It would be hard work and you may appreciate more micro-adjustment which you get in dedicated espresso grinders - but for an occasional shot or two, the C40 is more than up to the job.
For your Aeropress, V60, Kalita, Clever, Syphon, Drip Brewing Machine on the other hand, this grinder is unbeatable and punches well above it's weight at this price point. See what Magdalena made of it here or in our video below:

It's also worth checking out the excellent Commandante Instagram page, where there are regular brewing tips, recipes and recommendations about how to look after your prized grinder. You can find that here.
I ordered this grinder after lots of research and couldn’t be happier. The quality of build and consistency of grind is exactly as the reviews say. I wanted to support a local business (as local to Manchester as possible - plus I went to uni in Sheffield!) and Foundry coffee were excellent at keeping me updated on the status of delivery as well as the speed with which it arrived. They even included a bag of coffee which was a great touch. I look forward to making lots of great cups of coffee with this grinder and if anyone is on the fence then you should make the leap and get one, they are definitely value for money.
I absolutely love the comandante! I’ve previously had a porlex mini and it’s such a big upgrade. My brews taste much better and the grind quality is definitely visible. Compared to the porlex, it takes half the time to grind coffee. I also loved the bag of coffee I got with the C40 :)
