You could try using a food processor but it might not work as well. Also sometimes when you go to the store in the coffee aisle they have a machine that grinds them maybe they'd led you use that.

    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

    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.

    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.
