A couple weeks ago I had bought one of our favorite organic coffee blends from Costco, however, you have to grind them before you leave or you’ll have whole beans. I forgot to do this very important step.
And after buying freshly brewed coffee a few times the past week (cha-ching!), I said enough is a enough, I gotta get these beans grounded. As much as I love Costco, I did not want to go back in there just to use there grinder so I was thinking… what could I do?
And for a couple seconds I actually considered trying to brew coffee with whole beans. I didn’t but do wonder if it would have worked, has anyone tried this??
Then I had a light bulb moment… I can use my Vitamix! Yay!
So to learn how to use the Vitamix (or any high powered blender like a Blendtec or a Ninja) watch this video:
Ok, if you don’t have time to watch the video here ya go:
- Pour your coffee beans into blender
- Snap lid on- make sure it’s ON all the way
- Blend on the 8-10 setting on variable for 10 seconds (I assume medium on other blenders. Blend longer for a finer ground)
- Wa-la! Freshly ground coffee
