I use a dedicated coffee grinder. Clean it with minute rice, a little trick Ronelle clued me onto.

Nice tip!

My mother in law just bought me a coffee grinder because she heard me say I wanted to grind my own spices.

I use a cheap burr grinder, normally it would be used for coffee. I prefer the burr grinder for pepper and other small seeds. It is not so good for oily spices, such as canela or annato, as the burrs will gunk up. For those, I use a cheap whirly blade grinder, then mortar and pestle.

On a different note ... The coffee grinders work but the have their limitations.
These days I'm using a Cuisinart Mini-Prep.

Back when I did larger quantities I used to use an Indian grinder that really kicked butt.
search for Sumeet or Preethi on Amazon.

The ninja works great. There is a flat blade attachment that is really good. Nice for dusting your product prior to serving!
