Can Nutribullet Grind Coffee?

In this article we are going to take a look at the Nutribullet. You may be a coffee drinker and your question is can Nutribullet grind coffee?

Yes indeed you can use the Nutribullet to grind coffee. Over and above making your favorite smoothie or slushie, the Nutribullet can give you coarse or fine coffee depending on what you want.

The Nutribullet is a versatile machine that comes with two blades which you can interchange as per need. It has the milling blade and the extractor blade.

The extractor is four pronged and it is the one that is used when turning fruits and vegetables into drinks. The other one is two pronged and it grinds different food items into powder form.

So whenever you grind you want to make sure you have the milling blade and not the extractor.

How to grind coffee in the Nutribullet

Before you do anything take some time to go through the user manual to familiarize yourself with the machine before use. In the manual you will see how to place the blades inside the blender.

As you do this you want to make sure the connection is not in the wall socket. Unlike most blenders that come with a dial or a button to blend the Nutribullet is different.

You place the pitcher on the motor and you press the pitcher down for it to start blending or grinding. For short quick grinding or blending you pulse it instead of allowing it to run on its own.

Pulsing is when you run it on and off in short bursts of about one to two seconds each. When you do it this way, it allows the coffee beans to be ground evenly.

If you let it run continuously, the course beans tend to stay at the top while the ones at the bottom will be finer. This means that the coffee will have an uneven texture.

Grinding coarse coffee

This is a simple task that requires just coffee beans and of course your Nutribullet. You have to add your coffee beans into the pitcher to about three quarters full.

This allows some room for the blades to spin around and catch all the coffee beans. Place the pitcher on the motor and do about three pulses to get coarse coffee.

Grinding fine coffee

Making fine coffee is a much easier and simpler task. Re-attach the pitcher with the coarse coffee inside it. This time around allow the Nutribullet to run for at least 10-15 seconds.

Remove the pitcher and shake it up a little. Keep the lid tightly closed as you do so. This allows the bigger particles to go down. Subsequently the finer particles go to the top. Grind your coffee again for 10-15 seconds.

Do this over and over until your coffee reaches the finest texture that you desire. This should take at most two minutes or even less. Just like that you have fine coffee.

It is a simple and straightforward process that takes no time at all. After you are done you can empty the ground coffee into a storage container.

Place it in a cool dry place where it can be kept for future use. When you run out you can grind more coffee again quick and easy in the comfort of your home.


If you don’t have a coffee grinder to grind your coffee beans but you have a Nutribullet on hand, you have a great tool to get those coffee beans to just the right consistency. Place the beans in and grind to the require consistency and you are good to go.
