Many folks use a coffee grinder to grind spices. You should have a separate grinder for just spices as spice oils left behind can effect the taste of coffee ground after spices.

and the coffee oils will affect your spice flavors

A basic electric coffee grinder reserved for you r spices is the most economical way to go for an automatic one. Very effective.

Get a cheap electric coffee grinder and use it only for spices.

Another vote for electric coffee grinder. I have 4 or 5 of those things (not sure why). One of coffee, one for spices, and the remaining for backup I guess.

For me too. I can control the grind so much better. Once you've whirred it through the coffer grinder your stuck with what you did.
