  1. In my burr coffee grinder NOTHING except real, naked, properly roasted coffee beans are allowed into the hopper. No “flavored” beans that have been coated in noxious oils, no spices, no coffee beans mixed with other stuff…nothing.
    In my old whirlybird-blade coffee “grinder,” I will render spices or eggshells into powder form. If I had an emergency, I might submit my homeroasted treasure (coffee beans) to this device, but only if I were making drip coffee in a typical home-quality coffeemaker where particle size differences (from the boulders to talcum powder sized coffee grounds produced by the whirly blades) would not make much difference.

  2. You should never grind anything but coffee in a coffee grinder. Some people use them as spice grinders, but the coffee will develop a strange flavor if you do this.

  3. Electric?
    If I had three here’s how I would use them:
    Coffee
    2. Herbs (grind dry herbs and herb blends or rubs)
    3. Spices (grind whole spices like allspice berries)
    You can make your own powdered sugar if you get stuck without any.
    Remove the smell of herbs or spices by grinding a little coffee or unplug grinder and rub the inside and cap with a paste of baking soda to absorb smelly oils. Follow with a damp cloth to remove baking soda.

  4. I make my own almond flour, in batches starting with whole almonds. Much easier to clean even though I grind in small batches. I prefer it to a blender for nuts and fresh herbs as it is much more convenient than dragging out my blender or food processor when I only need small amounts. Make sure your grinder is clean and no coffee smell before you grind nuts, etc. Unkess you want a coffee flavoured salad!!!!

  5. Nothing! Of course it could be usefull for some spices but… spices are spices and has an aroma that should ruin the coffee. Coffe Is not only toasterd coffee beans but a special blend of different sorts, some times 5–6 and that makes a coffee “special”. Some very special brands has 1% of one cofee sort and all others and you feel it! How to compare a Starbucks to an italian Illy? Or a Swedish Löfbergs?
    Never use a coffee grinder to something else!!!
