Comandante C40 Review: MK4 Grinder Better Than MK3?
The Final Verdict The Comandante C40 MK4 is a darn good grinder capable of consistent grinds across the spectrum. This hand grinder rests on everything great about the Mark 3, with its awesome build quality, high burr quality, and overall solid grinding ability. It won’t leave you exhausted as you grind the day away, and it won’t overwhelm you with too many frills and dialing options

How do you guys cope with upgrade vibes?
What I will say, is that I upgraded to a comandante c40 at the start of the year and have been so so so happy. It’s an amazing grinder, it’s very reliable, it’s very pretty, it’s very sturdy too and I really like weighing out and grinding my coffee everyday with it.

Review: Is the Comandante C40 Grinder THAT good?
Conclusion: Comandante review The idea of this review has been to see whether the Comandante is still worth it in 2022. And I think it’s only fair to say that it’s still a great grinder all these years after it’s been released. Today, some grinders can beat it in certain areas, but in the end, the Comandante is just a good allrounder that can put in a reasonable effort in most categories
Surprised There Isn't More Love for Hand Grinders in Espresso!
I love my Comandante C40. It does put a Mahlkönig EK43 to shame in terms of grindsize and distribution. 18g take less than a minute and you don't need excessive amounts of force.
Any recommendation for budget hand grinders?
30€ hario Slim (too slow), 60€ timemore C2, 95€ Normcore V2 (I read a lot of good things about it), 150€ 1zpresso Jx, and ~225€ Comandante C40 or 1zpresso Jmax
These are my recommendations for each budget
Comandante C40 Mk4 Nitro Blade Coffee Grinder Review
Link up here and this upgrades your standard Commandante grinder where it essentially then doubles your grind settings, so in turn it will double the range you have for espresso brewing. So with the common Dante out of the box as is, it has an espresso range of say, 7 to 12 clicks or 5 grind settings. Then add the Red Clicks upgrade and this will boost that range and become 14 to 24 with 10 grind settings to choose from

How do you guys cope with upgrade vibes?
tips, gift-cards, money found in sofa, and while doing laundry). I also bought a Comandante C40 + Red clicks upgrade(tip money) and I’ve been so happy! There used to be a slight resistance I’d feel before starting my coffee routine, grinding the coffee with my Hario skerton was not easy! The C40 is so fast though and I can really dial in my espresso properly now.
It's cliché, but having good coffee truly does make a difference!
> got a comandante c40
That’s quite an expensive leap for someone who “really did not like coffee all that much” and had already “decided coffee wasn’t for me.”
[MOD] The Daily Question Thread
My budget is around 250$ I could go a little bigger to like 320$ but only if the quality increase is quite considerable. I was offered a Comandante C40 MK4 as a potential Christmas gift, but I honestly don't see how it's better from something like a JX-pro that's half the price, at least for my particular needs.
