    Default Cleaning Coffee Grinder

    TIP: Clean your coffee grinder by running about a cup of white rice through it. The rice is slightly harder than the coffee, so it will clean out the old coffee from the grinder. The rice will also absorb the oils that are trapped inside. Follow by grinding a handful of coffee through in order to clean out the residual rice. Repeat this every couple of weeks.

    The brown may be a bit softer, but there isn't any specific issue with brown.
    Also, this doesn't mean that you should use minute rice. It may do an okay job, but for best results, use the old school version.

    I've used both Minute Rice and the typical long-grain from the Asian supermarket. Both have worked similarly.

    While doing this, you might as well run some vinegar through your coffee pot.

    +1 on the rice tip; I've used white and brown with good results. Right now, we're using the coffee grinder to make flaxseed meal for our elderly Lab ( our vet is big on natural supplements), so it's good to have this tip on hand if your coffee grinder, like ours, is a multitasker.

    I must be a slob, I go from coffee to flax seed and back, with just a brushing out. Too frugal to waste a cup of rice, lol.

    BTW, don't try to use your coffee grinder to grate hard cheese. Ask me how I know....
