quickly become rancid when left exposed for any length of time. In addition to this, every grinder retains a residual amount of coffee inside. (this is why I like to grind a handful of throw-away beans before I grind for my drink. This will flush out the old coffee) This method is not recommended by the manufacturers, and I don’t recommend it for ceramic burrs. I’ve never had any issues with using this method with any grinder with metal burrs. If you are apprehensive about putting rice into your grinder, I suggest using a product called GRINDZ. which will do the same thing. So, how exactly do we effectively clean the coffee grinder? Here’s how…First, you’ll need

  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 stiff toothbrush
  • other stiff

    bristled brush / paint brush

  • clean damp cloth
  • dirty grinder

Here is the step by step instructions on how to clean a burr coffee grinder;

  1. Place about 1/2 cup of white rice into the grinder and cycle through at the finest setting
  2. If your grinder has a hopper, remove it, and use your brush to get any hard to reach areas, then wipe with the damp cloth
  3. remove any loose parts inside of the grinder and attack the exposed parts with the appropriate brushes
  4. If your grinder is small enough, you can tilt it over a trash can. Alternatively, you can do this cleaning outside and use a can of compressed air, or just close your eyes and blow really hard. That was a joke
