the magic bullet

i know you've all seen the infomercial about the magic bullet. it's a great party item, and you can make virtually anything using it...and it's so easy to clean! well, i received said magic bullet as a gift and this blog will chronicle how well the bullet lives up to its reputation.


the grind

just a quick entry:

bought some coffee beans and ground them up using the flat blade piece of the bullet.

result: not bad. i also tried to grind the beans with the regular blade and it seemed to work much better. the only annoying part was that grinding those coffee beans is so loud! the bullet is loud enough on its own, but coupled with rock hard coffee beans, the result is a little too much for the morning. you have to pulse several long times in order to get at all the beans.

mmmmmm coffee.

yeah the bullet is pretty DANG loud...then again - i have a coffee grinder too (which is probably little more than a mega-mini low-fi magic bullet, sans-toys-attachments-and-thing-a-ma-bobs, and it's pretty damn loud too.
unless you have a rubber cutting board and a nice cement mallet, you just can't win when it comes to grinding coffee beans to a freshly smashed pulp.
can ya?

perk perk..
