Of course you can!
But grinding coffee beans is the second thing I do every morning and since I'm only half awake it needs to be as quick and easy as possible. I think my burr grinder does a better job on coffee beans than the type of grinder I assume we are all referring to
and it is preset for the quantity and coarseness that I want. Pour in the beans, push a button, and the coffee is ground before a filter can be separated from the pile and put into the machine. I don't think grinding the beans adds five seconds to making the coffee.
Alix summed up the prevailing attitude in a coffee roasting
thread a year ago.

If more people ground their own beans, a few of those might decide to try roasting them as well, a topic dear to my heart.
