Can some coffee grinder also grind up nuts, like walnuts, seeds, etc.?

My mom is a vegetarian and she said she thought some did. If so, I'm going to get her one for Christmas.

Does anyone know? Would it say on the box?

Yep they can be used to grind other things BUT you want to get one that is easy to clean.

What kind of coffee grinder do you need to get a good cours grind for french press coffee?

There are a couple of kinds of coffee grinders.

The ones that look like a clear lid over a small metal bowl with a couple of blades will do nicely for small amounts of spices/nuts, etc. I use one for spices.

The Burr style coffee grinders (basically a couple of small, toothed wheels) are pretty much strictly for coffee--they tend to be more expensive anyway.

A small 2 cup food processor would probably work best for what you are describing--they are pretty cheap.
