Are you looking to up your coffee game with a top-notch manual grinder? Look no further than the Comandante C40 Nitro Blade coffee grinder. This beast of a grinder has taken the specialty coffee world by storm and for good reason. Let's dive into what makes the C40 so special and explore some must-have accessories.

Choosing your Comandante C40 color

One of the first decisions when buying a C40 is picking from the rainbow of color options:

No matter which stylish finish you choose, you're getting the same professional-grade internals. Colors are just the start of customizing your C40 to match your personality.

The magic is in the burrs

At the heart of the C40's consistent grind are the proprietary Nitro Blade burrs. Engineered and manufactured in-house by Comandante in Germany, these high-nitrogen stainless steel burrs are sharp, precise, and built to last.

Geometry of the burrs has been perfected over years of R&D to optimize bean throughput while maintaining a uniform grind at any setting. An advanced dual-bearing mount keeps the burrs perfectly stable.

Grind adjustment for any brew method

Want to switch from pour-over to espresso? The C40 has you covered with its stepless grind adjustment system. The tactile clicks let you lock in your favorite settings and reproduce the exact same grind next time.

Brewing method Grind setting range
Espresso 5-10 clicks
AeroPress 10-15 clicks
Pour-over 15-30 clicks
French press/Cold brew 30-35+ clicks

For even more range, the Red Clix Axle kit is a drop-in replacement offering micro-adjustments between clicks.

Ergonomic crank and knob

Grinding by hand doesn't have to be a chore. The C40's smooth bearings, ergonomic removable handle, and natural oak knob make the grinding action almost effortless.

Want a different look and feel? Swap to a Standard Knob in natural or smoked oak or lacquered black.

Travel mug and pouch included

Included with every C40 are a clear glass catch jar, an opaque brown glass jar for bean storage, and a protective neoprene travel pouch. The jars hold about 40g of beans each, perfect for a single serving.

Lost or broke your jar? Grab a replacement glass jar in clear or brown, or try the durable Polymer-Glass Bean Jar in classic black or vibrant colors. These BPA-free polymer jars won't break and double as an insulated travel mug!
