Hmm... I love my Comandante... One of my first specialty coffee purchases. 100% daily use for a few years now, no issues, wonderful to use, never became a hassle (luckily I don't need to grind 30g+ often), and ITC the quality is simply amazing.

I'm not sure I'll feel the need to sell and upgrade but it's nice to see them doing some work still.

What is the coating on the Comandantes that aren't with wood veneer?

It's a powder coat.

Make sure your retailer is verifying they are shipping the MK4.

Comandante didn't make it easy to differentiate MK4 and MK3 on the box - they use the same bar code even.

I got an MK3 shipped twice instead of MK4 and had to return :(

How is the powder coat durability versus wood veneer? I think I'd be fine with a powder coat but it wouldn't feel like a Comandante to me without wood... Plus I do like some of the powder colors.
