Places in Nola that will grind coffee beans



I have some Kona coffee beans from Maui that I would like to grind, but don't feel like dishing out $40-100 for a coffee grinder. Any place in/around Nola that will grind coffee beans for free or a small fee? Thanks in advance.

I know it is irritating when someone doesn't answer the question, but I don't think you have to spend this much.

At least you get a free bump.

You sure grinders cost this much? I'd swear Target has 'em for like $20?

That's the blade kind, not what you want. You want all the coffee fragments to be the same size, not a mixture of powder and boulders. It takes a burr grinder to do it well.



Not cheap.

Can you send me one for my French press? Things just seem empty and incomplete now!

That's actually why I read up on em. For the french press you want really course ground coffee, opposite from what I thought. I figured course ground coffee would leave flavor in the bean, but apparently I was wrong.

They say to pour it off of the grounds after 5 or so minutes, I never did that either.

Best $20 grinder there is, IMO.
Works great for uniformity for the price.

Friend's parents have a timeshare. Only expenses are plane ticket, excursions and food. Still costs a little over $2k for a week in Hawaii, but well worth it.

Almost any grocery store has a grinder in the coffee section. Just tell them you forgot to grind your bean coffee last time you were there.
