Greetings Chefs,

New to the site, lurked a little and found a thread similar to what I'm looking for but didn't quite answer the question. https://cheftalk.com/threads/how-do-i-grind-up-large-thick-cassia-bark-sticks-please-help.75111/

I make different blends of tea, usually in batches of 15-25 Lbs. at a time. I was using a grindmaster 810 to blend things like peppercorns, cinnamon sticks, clove, birch bark, cacao nibs, etc.

The grindmaster I was using is no longer operational. I'm looking to replace it for something much easier to clean and can coarsely grind spices to around an 8 mesh size.

I've looked into other coffee grinders but I find they're expensive and take forever to clean. I've also looked into grain mills but I've spoken to a few sales reps about it and they're not sure about the machines ability to handle the array of ingredients we'll be using. I'm also considering a food processor but I'm honestly not sure what to look for. Also had the crazy idea to use a meat grinder, but I've never used one so I'm not sure if it's a realistic solution.

Budget: trying to keep it under $1,000.00

I welcome all ideas and suggestions and appreciate your time to reply!

Thanks for taking the time to reply foodpump, I'll certainly look into it. I've posted on a different site and received the suggestion to use the sort of mills that craft brewers would use. That's looking like my best solution as of the moment.

I'll update my post when a decision is made to help others encountering similar issues!
