If you enjoy coffee, you should be familiar with the various methods of grinding it so that you never have to go without a cup in the morning.
Grinding coffee beans before brewing improves the preservation of the coffee's natural flavors and ensures that it remains fresher for longer.
It helps to keep coffee from becoming stale or bland over time. If you do not have access to a coffee grinder, you can achieve a similar result by blending the ingredients in your blender.
A Vitamix blender is capable of grinding coffee without a doubt. Which blade and container combination to use in order to achieve the best result for your specific needs.
The Dry Grains Container was created with grains, cereal, coffee, and bread dough in mind. While the conventional or wet container is appropriate for dry ingredients, the Dry Grains Container is more efficient and effective. The Dry Grains Container operated more quickly and consistently. Furthermore, cleanup was more systematic.
Connect the container of dry grains to the Vitamix and add the coffee beans. Select Variable Speed 1 and increase the speed gradually to Variable 8. Grind for ten seconds or until desired fineness is achieved (between ten and twenty seconds for Coarse grind and between ten and twenty seconds for Espresso grind), then turn off the grinder. You can even brew iced coffee in your Vitamix.
While the conventional or wet container is appropriate for dry ingredients, the Dry Grains Container is more efficient and effective. If you only use the Vitamix to grind flour or other dry ingredients on a rare occasion and are not interested in using it for bread making, you can probably get away with just the standard wet container.
