I'm from the country. and we use to grind our beans like the way we use to do to our chestnuts
put them old pillow case and went out side and beat them till you could not feel the whole bean any more
i still do it in the basement , on the cement floor
I used a blender once, they turned out good, just keep pulsing the button to fine grounds.. mmmmm good luck
With a hammer, or you coul try your blender
try a food processor?
take them to a starbucks and have them grind em. If you are in the jungle then try and a large stone and a small stone, like they did way back when.
i would use the machine to grind it up at the supermarket or id use the blender or the hammer or id go out and buy another jar of coffee that is already been grinded up
starbucks will grind it free

You can use a blender. Use grind or higher for your settings. You want very small particles for more surface area.
Or, you can take the bag to any grocery or coffee store. They will grind them up for you.
Maybe you could wrap them in paper and crush them with something heavy, like a stone - then unwrap them. You may not get finely ground, but if you don't have access to a grinder this could work. Then your coffee will give you stronger muscles AND put hair on your chest! (Ok, just kidding about the hair...)
If you wanted them more finely ground, you could try using mortar and pestul (sp?) after crushing them in the paper.
You can't and don't use your blender you will ruin it. You can get a grinder for $20.00 or maybe borrow a friends.
you cant, buy then allready ground
