    VitaMix and grinding beans

    Does anyone know if you can grind the coffee beans with a vitamix Blender. Don't have a grinder but do have a vitamix. Thought I would try ordering some whole beans if this vitamix would do the job.
    Thanks

    Just found out

    Just found out my mother has a cuisinart coffee grinder. I asked her why she never used it. She said it was hard to clean and the coffee tasted rancid to her after grinding 2 or 3 times. This thing just looks like a little blender. I am sure the vitamix would grind the beans now just looking at the cuisinart. The vitamix would be much easer to clean also, as I can fill it with water and soap and blend it up, walla it is clean. If anyone knows any other suggestions though I am always wanting to learn
    Thanks

    is this for drip? I hope......and, why not just get a cheap blade grinder. DO NOT ATTEMPT to make espresso with anything less than a quality grinder designed for espresso.

    drip response

    Yea, my mother is going to get a technivorm for CHristmas. All she does is make coffee in the morning. I looked at the Braun she has and it just looks like a small blender, I just figured if it would grind coffee beans the vitamix would really grind coffee beans. She does not have a espresso machine, don't think she has ever drank a espresso. Won't this work, I just figured since the braun was a little blender the Vitamix would really grind with no problems. Let me know if I am wrong though. I would appreciate it.
    Thanks

    well, cleaning the vita mix is going to be allot more difficult, than a blade grinder. Also the blades are ( i guess) designed to cut the beans and the blender bashes the beans..
