Picture of Simple Hack to Remove Static in the Coffee Grinder
After-Hack.jpg

Coffee is much better when you use freshly ground coffee beans. However, when using a burr coffee grinder, one common frustration is the little bits of coffee grounds that stick to the grinder. If you use it frequently, the static electricity that causes those bits of coffee to stick around can make your coffee grinder look dingy and dirty. Additionally, sometimes grinding coffee makes a real mess in the kitchen. Static, coffee, and grinders can be a huge headache! However, there is a surprisingly simply solution to these common problems.

Step 1: Prepate your coffee beans

Um, question: why is there a cut between when he dumps the beans and shows the bin? Is it so you could clean the bin and make this “brilliant hack” look like it actually works?

Step 1. Fill hopper with desired amount of beans.
Step 2. Remove ground coffee chamber.
Step 3. Exhale into chamber so there's a little moisture on the walls.
Step 4. Immediatly return chamber to grinder and grind beans.
This method will eliminate about 90% of the static.
