Made in Germany, enjoys extreme popularity around the world in the coffee scene: the Comandante MK4. And for good reason. It is by far the best hand coffee grinder on the market in many respects and sets completely new standards. All in all, it can be said that the Comandante is clearly different from all other grinders in terms of grinding results.

GRINDER

The grinder works with a cone grinder made of high nitrogen stainless steel, which is manufactured in a patented process. This stainless steel is not only extremely durable but also very sharp-edged. The edges are even individually re-sharpened. Therefore, the Comandante even achieves a more homogeneous grinding result than most electric coffee grinders.

In addition, the hand grinder has two axes that stabilize the central, elongated rod (the so-called shaft). This fixation ensures that the inner part of the grinder does not move and that no coarser coffee particles get into the grind container.

GRINDING DEGREE

35 Grinding degrees can be easily adjusted via a small wheel (with "clicks") on the bottom of the grinder. This gives the hand mill a lot of room to maneuver. Of course, it can't keep up with the multitude of degrees on infinitely variable espresso grinders, but that's not what a hand mill is made for. Even if you are therefore somewhat more limited in the fine-tuning of the espresso, we can recommend it, thanks to its otherwise excellent properties, even for espresso.

The difference in class of the Comandante is also noticeable when operating the grinder. A double ball bearing supports the power transmission and reduces the own effort. Even the otherwise rather annoying grinding process starts to be fun. The beans are ground almost twice as fast as with other hand mills. The turning motion is much easier and more rounded. This is also due to the shape of the crank, which is curved to the center of the mill, unlike the other hand mills. As a result, the lid of the bean container sits particularly tightly during the grinding process, the power transmission is supported and the mill fits better in the hand.

FINISH

The appearance of the Comandante is rounded off not only by a beautiful design, but also by exclusively high-quality materials. From the first touch of the hand mill, it is immediately clear that you have a professional mill in your hand. There is no trace of plastic.

The mill looks very well thought out from front to back. The filling quantity of 40g coffee is sufficient for each preparation, nevertheless, a second sealable glass is supplied, if you want to grind in stock. 

CLEANING

To clean the grinder, you can very easily remove the grinder completely. Only the detailed cleaning of the bean hopper can prove to be a bit more elaborate, as there are two axes and not all places are super accessible.

CONCLUSION

Due to the price, the Comandante is certainly a good purchase to consider. However, you get a very high quality mill produced in Europe, and the company Comandante offers a wonderful customer service. This is a mill for life.
