Comandante Hand Grinder
High quality, German engineered coffee hand grinder with excellent precision.
Comendante C40 (MKIII) with Nitro-Blade burrs (Wenge & Bamboo) or Ultra-hard Carbon Steel burrs (Ironheart).
Read on for the different models available.
Average: >1 Bean per turn at < 3,0 Nm
Comandante burr sets are always cut from solid metal blocks by experienced craftsmen. Burr geometry has been optimized to achieve excellent grind thruput with medium crank torque delivering refined grind particle size distribution for best brew results. Grind thruput averages at 1 coffee bean per turn at a comfortable medium turning force.
Axle with Micro Ball Bearings
Axle: Stainless Steel
Axle Bearings: 2 x Stainless Steel Micro Ball Bearing with Rubber Seals
Crank: Stainless Steel
Crank-Knob: 100% Natural Oak Wood (hand-made in Black Forest)
The center axle is fixed and supported by two micro ball bearings for better distribution of force and grind momentum. Both micro ball bearings are encapsulated with rubber for protection and smooth operation. The turning crank is made of stainless steel and can be removed to better fill the C40. The clear disc on the crank has been pressed onto the stainless steel quite solidly, but can be adjusted if necessary.
Grind Grade Selection – 3-Way Click Action
The grind grade selection dial has been designed like a three-legged star with a proper click action. We use three independent micro steel ball click units to assure a balanced pressure scenario for the burr conus. It is located at the bottom of the C40. Use three fingertips and turn the star clock-wise to get a finer grind result or counterclock-wise for a more coarse grind. The click action firmly locks in your preferred grind grade.
But please be careful with your fingers when you operate close to the burr edges. The Burr edges of Nitro Blade are extra sharp. You can easily cut and harm yourself if you are not careful.
Five Senses provides a one year warranty on all Comandante grinders sold in Australia. So if you have any issues with your Comandante during this period, please contact us via our contact page.

With an advanced Carbon Steel Blade burr set, the Ironheart is designed to achieve a very fine grind ideal for espresso or Turkish coffee.
