Once again we put coffee grinding out on a table. This was very popular last year as the children love to use the grinder and everyone likes the smell of the coffee. To help with the independence aspect, we decided to clamp the grinder on the table instead of having to hold it for each child. The child uses a small scoop and puts the whole beans into the top of the grinder. They grind the beans and can hear when there are no more beans left to grind.
The drawer is opened and the grinds are then dumped into a large canister. Last year we made coffee for the parents to enjoy at drop off. We working out the logistics for this again this year. We will keep you posted!
