Mahlkonig EK43S. Funnel use instead of hopper

Recommended Posts

@girardan - I know what you mean about the static, I keep a medium sized Acacia dosing cup clipped onto the bag chute when not in use to catch any stray bits.

Some judicious thwacking in between uses and brushing out once a week really helped. It’s less messy than the old SJ I used to have and about the same as my Niche which did spray a bit.

@The Systemic Kid - Haven’t misted the beans yet, no issues with non-stainless cast steel burrs rusting after a while?

@northern monkey Been using a mister for years - on my previous EK with stock burrs and current with SSPs - no problems with rusting. You only need the slightest amount of misting - holding the container holding the beans a foot or more from the mister. You don't want to be spraying directly into the container.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I do keep a dosing cup on between grind, heavily knock and get into the chute with a brush (what other kind of cleaning should I consider?).  

I will try a gentle mist.  I assume this needs to be done immediately prior to misting and not simply after a roast and once in a container?

Must just before grinding
