Grinding your own coffee beans at home with a blender is easy and you do not need to buy a special grinder—a blender is really the only equipment you will need! Whole beans will keep their flavour longer than grounds, so you will want to grind your beans just before you make your coffee. You can always save a few whole beans back for dipping in chocolate, or for sugaring to make candy, or infusing into vodka or ice cream, or just for snacking on. So get out your trusty blender, and learn how to use your blender to grind your own beans at home!
A blender with a glass jar is best--coffee smells will tend to stick to plastic. Or you can buy a spare plastic blender jar and use it only for coffee.
