I recently bought cinnamon sticks, and have been using my microplane grater to grind it. This seems fairly labor-intensive. I've heard that people use a coffee grinder to grind spices, but I don't have one. Is it really worth the $$$ to get a coffee grinder just to grind cinnamon? Any other suggestions as to what might work better than the microplane? Thanks
