Can I use my coffee bean grinder for espresso beans?!

Question: Can I use my coffee bean grinder for espresso beans!?
Because of the additional oils in espresso beans, I would go ahead and spend the $20 and get another cheap grinder!. I ruined a very expensive burr grinder with espresso beans because I could not get all of the oils off of the grinder!. Grounds stuck everywhere!
I learned my lesson!.
Hope this helps!.
Good Luck!Www@FoodAQ@Com

It depends on the type of grinder you have!. If it's a good one (I think they're referred to as "burr" grinders, not sure of the spelling), then you can, though you'll need to keep it on for longer than you would when making a medium grind for a coffee maker!.

Just give it a shot!. Keep the grinder on for a bit longer, and tilt it occasionally to ensure larger pieces haven't floated to the top!. At worst, it won't work and you'll be out a few dozen coffee beans!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I've never had any problem grinding beans in my burr grinder!. I tend to like a dark roast --French, Italian, espresso!. I vary the grind from french press (rather coarse) to espresso (quite fine)!.

Burr grinders are more consistent than the blade grinders!. The fineness of the grind in a burr grinder is not dependent on the amount of time you grind it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Sure just adjust the grinder to a very fine setting!. The beans are the same the only thing that is different is the roast and quality!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
