Sounds far too simple to me

 

Not really . so long as there is a reasonable amount in the hopper you'll have one continuous consistent particle distribution , where now there is 1)take-up grind 2) middle portion 3) pop corning . Bet you any money you will have to grind coarser to maintain the same flow rate which means less clumps and a more evenly saturated bed of coffee.

Gary is completely right here, unfortunately we are obsessed with single dosing and wasting coffee. There are only a few grinder that single dose very very well and they are very very expensive. Pretty much all grinders work better with weight if beans, which will give a more consistent grind quality. Single dose if you will but it comes at a cost.

My Experience of this :

 

Mazzer Mini E single dosing = espresso was a pain the ass

Royal single dosing = espresso was a pain in the ass but tasted quite a bit better

Royal with a full hopper = espresso tasted flipping amazing but there was a fair bit of wastage given my 2-3 drinks a day

EK single dosing (after a shaky start) = ahhhh thats more like it ;)

Hmmm interesting! I will certainly try and get hold of a tube hopper and go from there.

Sadly I have to agree with Gary and Coffeechap. Bean weight does make a big difference.

 

However if you do single dose I have found that you can improve the consistency of your shot with something like an Dobboco / OCD distribution tool.
