Coffee Grinding and Separation

Have any of you ever ground your own coffee beans? While I enjoy a freshly ground and brewed cup of coffee, the process of grinding the roasted beans can get messy. Most of the heavier ground coffee is easily transferred to a container for storage, but there is always some lighter, static-filled flakes from the shell of the bean that end up all over the counter (and sometimes the floor) which end up going into the garbage or getting washed down the drain.

This reminded me of John the Baptist's words in Matthew 3:12 and Luke 3:17-
"His (God's) winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, 
and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

Are you wheat or chaff? Will you be gathered into the barn or burned with unquenchable fire?
