Can You Grind Coffee Beans in a Nutribullet?

Overview

Can You Grind Coffee Beans in a Nutribullet? Grinding is simple business: you just need a good kind of apparatus and you’re good to go. Of course, a lot of it depends on the strength of your grinder, but with Nutribullet, you’ll waste neither time nor money. This is what Nutribullet is made for- diversity of use. You don’t have necessarily to buy a product that specially made for grinding coffee beans (although there are many good coffee grinders, as we’ve mentioned in other articles (LINK).

Nutribullet’s milling blade will easily cut through all kinds of coffee beans- whether light, medium, or dark roasted (with the last one being the hardest to grind). On the other hand, Nutribullet’s blades may not be the best type of grinder for getting all types of grinds. For instance, if you’d like to mess a bit with French Roasts and other types of coffee-making methods, you’d most likely need roast ground, and this may be a bit hard to get with a Nutribullet.

List of Different Nutribullet Products

It’s also important to note that there are many Nutribullet products and here we will talk about how each of them can grind coffee beans.

1. NutriBullet Original

This is the classic product- if you’re the average user, you won’t need more than the original version’s 600 watts. The blades will grind just about anything (though we don’t encourage you to experiment!), and this product is at the same time the most affordable one from the list. If you’re the kind of person that likes quick, good, affordable, and hassle-free solutions, this is the real deal, no need for you to search anymore.

Nutribullet 14 Piece Nutrition Extractor 600W Blender Juicer NBR-1401 Nutri Bullet
  • Includes: power base, 1 tall cup, 2 short cups, 1 handled lip ring, 1 non handled lip ring,
  • Plus: 1 extractor blade, 1 milling blade, 2 re-sealable lids, 1 Fliptp to-go lid with oversize mug
Pros
  • More or less affordable
  • Classic settings
Cons
  • Has the weakest motor of all Nutribullet products

2. NutriBullet Pro

To make the long story short, this is the upgraded version of the original. Slightly. You have 300 more watts which make up for 900 watts of power total. This version is also better capacity-wise, as it has 8 more oz of capacity. It is also almost 50% more expensive than the Nutribullet original, which frankly isn’t that good of a deal. In our opinion, you should either stick with the first model or consider buying some other models, because Pro most surely didn’t stand up to its name. There’s only one good thing- Pro comes in many more colors.

NutriBullet Pro - 13-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System with Hardcover Recipe Book Included (900 Watts)
  • With 900 watts of power, the Pro is faster and stronger than the original, but just as simple to use. Load it up with dense whole foods like nuts, seeds, hard fruits, and kale, then push, twist and blend your way to a healthier lifestyle.
  • Optimized 900-watt motor and refined nutrient extraction blades blend The toughest whole foods into nutritious shakes, smoothies, and nut butters.
Pros
  • Has 300 more watts than NutriBullet original
Cons
  • Is considerably more expensive than the original version

3. NutriBullet Rx N17-1001

Now, this is the real deal! Sure, you could buy 3 standard versions for the price of one Rx n17, but hey, take a look at what you pay for: 1700 watt motor, 1-liter max capacity, SMART hands-free tech, HEATING. And it’s currently on discount so check it out. Although we’re not quite sure whether you actually need a 1700 watt motor, it at least justifies the price of NutriBullet Rx. Can you grind coffee with this product? Most surely. You should occasionally check the blades, and see if they are damaged or anything like that.

It’s not that you cannot grind coffee beans with other products from this list, but with Nutribullet Rx you don’t have to hesitate even a little bit or be anxious about the outcome. This (coffee) grinder/blender has the strongest motor of all blenders from this list.

4. NutriBullet ZNBF30500Z Blender Combo

It’s safe to say that this is the most versatile product on this list- it has different speeds, which might help you with getting different types of coffee grinds, although you might have to experiment a bit.

It isn’t exactly a burr grinder, but it will most certainly do the job!

FAQs

Can NutriBullet grind coffee beans? 

Most surely- especially if you opt for stronger models. The most important thing is to look out for the state of your blades. Neither NutriBullet nor Magi Bullet blender/grinders were made specifically for grinding coffee beans, so just take care of this aspect and yous should be fine.

What NutriBullet to choose?

In my opinion, Rx N17 should be your choice. Yes, it’s expensive, but it will get the job done. Besides, you can use it to grind other solid foods, like nuts and dry fruit. These kinds of foods (along with coffee beans) are quite demanding on the blade of your grinder, so it’s good to have that extra power NutriBullet Rx offers.

Can I get a coarse grind on NutriBullet?

This is a tricky one. We’ve mentioned that a fair amount of practice might be needed to master the intricacies of grinding on this type of product. So the right answer to this question would be: maybe.

Can I use NutriBullet for grinding spices?

Yes, even the sturdier ones.

Step By Step Guide

Step 1: Check the general instructional manual that comes with your Nutri product.

Step 3: Fix Nutribullet on a flat, firm surface.

Step 4: Pay attention not to put too many coffee beans- 100 g should be fine. If you’re using a stronger model (the last two we’ve mentioned) with better capacity, you can put a bit more, but still, take care not to overdo it. 

Step 5: Choose your speed- that is, if you’re using the third and fourth grinders from our list. If you’re using the original or pro version, you won’t be able to choose the speed.

Step 6: If you’re using the original (or Pro) Nutribullet, you can perhaps vary the size of the grind by varying the time of grinding.
