Struggling to dial in coffee on your Comandante C40 grinder?
Thinking of getting one but need to know if it’s suitable for your brew method? We’re here to help!
We consider ourselves at Brew Box to be Comandante’s biggest fans.
Not only are their grinders beautifully crafted, but their advanced burr set design gives you the ability to grind for a range of brew methods from French Press all the way to Espresso, a unique feature which sets them apart from most other hand grinders on the market.
Many of you reading this will already know that Comandante grinders have been like gold dust over the past few months - due to insane levels of demand, it’s been almost impossible to find these grinders from local retailers!
We’re delighted to have sourced a limited supply for our webshop but we know it can be a tricky and time-consuming task to dial in coffee using a new grinder… so we thought we’d give our customers a head start by sharing the grind settings we love to use on our Comandante C40.
However, these settings are to be used as a baseline only - the grind settings you use will vary depending on factors such as the coffee you’re using, your dose and recipe, and (most importantly!) your own taste preferences.
You may prefer your coffee to taste slightly lighter or darker, so don’t take our word as law - try the settings out, play with them and let us know what you think!
