Add a handful of uncooked rice to your coffee grinder and grind away. The chopped rice cleans out the stuck coffee grounds, oils and absorbs stale odors. Afterward, throw away the rice and wipe the grinder clean.

I just read this... most regular blenders will accept Mason jars, so you can grind spices or your coffee beans into a Mason jar, and store right away. Simpler clean-up, no need for separate coffee or spice grinders, or to buy one of those 'bullet blenders'. It's also good to know if you happen to break the that jar/lid that comes with your blender. (see clarificiation in"more info", following comments rec'd.)
Clarification following comments: I take my blender's blades and screw them onto the jar, then screw that into the blender stand. Hopefully that's clear?
I used to be a Starbucks fanatic- seriously every day I would buy a tall white mocha. I bought a coffee grinder for about 17 bucks, inexpensive coffee beans (sometimes Starbucks brand) but from a store other than Starbucks, then buy the International Vanilla creme. It's delicious and I save money and it's only 30 calories per tablespoon.
