Can u put ground coffee in your grinder to make it finer??
People are often buying my ground coffee and although I know it will be stale, Id like to use it rather than throw it out.
Id prefer to use my espresso machine (6910) but obvuiously the grind is too course.
Anyone tried it??? Ive just been given some very nice smelling coffee and dont want it to end up in the bin - plus I need to roast and this would buy me 2 days grace :)
tryed it, did not work. just have to put up with gushers if you want to use it
In addition, its a perfect way to kill a grinder....Originally Posted by 59555C5C5F5F65495455583A0 link=1243500171/2#2 date=1243501764
Put it in a mortar and pestle herb thing and give it a going over.
Use the coffee in a plunger or a syphon if you dont want to throw it out.
On the re-grinding thing, DONT DO IT. You may well destroy your grinder by clogging it up with ground coffee.
All the best,
EDIT - Damn you guys are quick :o.
Is this an excuse for a new grinder?
Some would argue that the coffee wont be fresh by the time you reground it (if it works......but it wont)
Plunger is the way to go I think.
To summarise: No, unless you want to kill your grinder.Originally Posted by 48637A697E0C0 link=1243500171/0#0 date=1243500171
Why not ask these generous people to buy you fresh beans instead.Originally Posted by 48637A697E0C0 link=1243500171/0#0 date=1243500171
Why on earth would you want to do that?Originally Posted by 48637A697E0C0 link=1243500171/0#0 date=1243500171
It cost you nothing; throw it in the bin; Ive done it; just dont do it when they are looking.
I noticed you called them "people" not "friends".
So you might find it easier to bin it if you realise they dont mean that much to you.
Friends would buy you freshly roasted beans.
i didnt really care if i distroyed my grinder, i really need an excuse to upgrade
