Check out this cool guide on how to convert a hand grinder into a silent automatic grinder. Using a some basic parts and 3D printing this is a great project for anyone who rises early and doesn’t want to wake up the whole house. Via The Verge:
Mornings are hard for a caffeine addict. The headaches and grumpiness are bad enough, but then you have to deal with the noise of the grinder before you get the anti-migraine juice you so desperately crave.
This silent coffee grinder uses a hand grinder and a strong motor to grind coffee slowly and quietly. It connects to the internet, so you can set it to run automatically or run it from your phone. You can even set it to grind less and less coffee over time, imperceptibly reducing your caffeine intake until you’re back to more tolerable levels of dependence, or breaking the coffee habit entirely.
REDUCING YOUR CAFFEINE INTAKE
You can change the amount of coffee your grinder makes each day by changing the `grindTimeList` variable. To schedule your coffee each week, change this list to reflect the number of minutes your bot should grind each day, starting with Monday. Then, re-flash the code to your Electron.
