    In my wee home barista setup (E61 machine, grinder and Grindstein knockbox) Ive always found that pleasant (ground coffee) always trumps unpleasant (spent pucks in an open air knock box).

    Give it a gee oh :)

    I dont notice any smell from my knock box.
    Its a large one so if it was going to it would by the time it was full.

    Dont leave them for too long, and if there are wet ones...

    They have been known to grow legs and escape... Check out the Puck Art section..

    Suggest you do a search in General Coffee Related section for "DIY Knock Box" theres some good ideas in there, including the option a a knock box with a lid...I find it keeps my wife happy by containing some odour ;)
