Coffee/Spice Grinders

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have read posts where people talk about getting a grinder for spice mixtures. Well, guess what? No need to have 2 grinders in the kitchen. When I need to grind some spices, I take about 1/2 piece of bread, tear it up into small pieces and put it into my coffee grinder. Process and wipe it out. After grinding my spices, I used the other half of the bread and repeat. No need for a dedicated spice grinder. I heard about this from Master Chief Michael Chiarello of the famous Napa Valley in CA. I was leary, but it works great (I am anal about my fresh ground coffee in the morning). There is no cross contamination from either use.

Even with something like cumin seed? That's one oily pungent seed right there.
Though I only use one grinder anyway since I don't drink coffee.

I grind my french roast which is oily, and then peppercorns and then back to coffee. I,m picky about my coffee and have never had a problem.
