Those in the know understand that Comandante has become the name synonymous with elite-level coffee grinding and premium brewing.
However, this highly revered piece of equipment comes with a £249 price tag. And when alternative hand grinders are available for a fraction of the cost, is it worth spending more for a Comandante?
The bottom line is that however much you spend on a coffee grinder, you will end up with ground coffee. But if you're putting time, effort and money into discovering and drinking delicious coffee, your grinder is hands-down the most important piece of coffee kit you could own.

Superb build-quality: Ultra-sharp nitro-blades give consistent and precise grinding, while the beautifully crafted wooden body and crank handle make for a sophisticated look.
It's a delight to use: The Comandante's balanced, smooth mechanism takes all the effort out of grinding fresh coffee. It's ergonomic, tactile design mean you'll be reaching for it with pleasure every time you need a caffeine fix.
Each grinder is unique: While the internal mechanism is engineered with consistent mm accuracy, the outer grinder is different each time. With sustainable, high-quality wood sourced from Germany's Black Forest, each Comandante sports its own unique tone and grain pattern, which ages beautifully.
"The Comandante surpasses all expectations from a hand grinder. As even a grind size if not more even than any electric grinder on the market, and it fits in your hand luggage!"

"As a coffee experimenter, I like playing with inputs and every single "click" provides a subtle difference; enough to make a change but not too big either, so it's perfect to use. With the click systems from Comandante, every recipe can be exchanged easily with the number of clicks."

I like to use Comandante as I am in full control of grind settings, saving me a lot of time and hassle when it comes to competition time. I do not lose the quality of grinding as Comandante provide higher quality than most expensive commercial grinders including EK43. That is why I love it."
