How to Grind Coffee with a Nutribullet
A few simple steps are all it takes to switch your Nutribullet from a smoothie machine to a coffee grinder. If you have a two-cup model, you can use the smaller of your two blending cups. Swap over to the milling blade, and you are all set to grind!
Pulse the coffee beans in the Nutribullet until the desired consistency is reached. Grind times will vary depending on how full the cup is. Here is a basic guide for how long to pulse for the right grind size:
- French Press - 5 Seconds
- Pour Over - 10 Seconds
- Drip Brewer - 15 Seconds
- Espresso - 20 Seconds
After grinding, turn the cup over and carefully remove the blade. Dump the grinds into your coffee filter or brewer and brew regularly. Always remember to thoroughly clean your Nutribullet after grinding coffee beans.
How to Clean a Nutribullet After Grinding Coffee
Taking care of your Nutribullet ensures that it has a long life. A big part of that care is the cleaning. Coffee has a lot of oils, so it is important to thoroughly clean the cup and blades after grinding the beans.
The cup portion of the blender is top-rack safe in the dishwasher, but it can also be hand-washed. However, the blade should be hand-washed. Always use warm soapy water when washing the parts.
A quick cleaning trick is to fill the cup to fill line with warm water, then add two drops of dish soap. Secure the blending base and pulse for up to 10 seconds, and rinse with warm water. It's a quick way to clean the cup and blade without too much water.
