cheapest bag of beans for seasoning and messing with a grinder?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure most supermarkets will stock some sort of whole bean.  Probably 250g bags for a few quid.  might cost you £10? or as Deegee says, a local roaster might have waste beans that didnt meet QC for cheap?

There’s a remote possibility you may have to pay for them, I’d check the end of line corner in your local Lidl/Aldi before paying for their or anyone’s beans, I’d be careful about putting anything too cheap down a brand new grinder, a small stone would ruin your day and burr set.

Some folks have used rice in the past. I'd definitely want to check beans from a supermarket for stones etc. I once had a piece of twig in a bag. Was enough to jam in m grinder but didn't damage it :classic_sad:
