Love it!

The C40 is not only gorgeous, it’s a German engineering masterpiece! It’s not the cheapest hand grinder you can get, but it’s a standard in the coffee community and makes communicating recipes very easy.

Superb Hand Grinder

You have good water and good beans? Then you are only missing this good grinder for a tasty cup of coffee!

Outstanding German craftsmanship

A very hefty, solidly built piece of machinery. I've tested it out @ under 10 clicks for espresso and above 30 clicks for press pot. Very, and I mean VERY, consistent grind throughout this range. Also, minimal fines at the courser settings (which I would rarely use, but if that's your thing, this grinder will have you singing with joy). Quality!

Your Coffee Beans Will Thank You!

I like this grinder quite a bit, and this is coming from someone who's had a Timemore C-1, as well as a Cafflano Krinder.

Physically it's quite bulky, heavier than my past hand grinders, and the build quality is premium. It turns grinding coffee into a fun activity, no pun intended.

The only little, teeny weeny fault I've noticed is that there will be a fragment of bean stuck between burrs at the end of my grind that will need to physically be taken out by clicking towards the coarser side. But that isn't a big deal to me.

Beautifully designed. Premium feel. All around great hand grinder!
