File this under the “Why didn’t I think of that?” category. Did you know you can use a small pepper grinder to grind coffee beans for your French press or Aeropress?

Coffee Beans in a Pepper Grinder

The folks over at Lifehacker came across this tip on the outdoor site Mountainize, but we think this use is applicable for much more than camping. If you use a French press travel mug in your office, or just don’t want a coffee grinder cluttering up your countertop, this solution might be for you.

Tell us what you think. Would you try this idea?
