  • If a click-clack wont fit try this

    Ive mentioned previously what I do because the hopper on my M5 is between click-clack lids sizes.
    This also works on my Gaggia MDF.

    Ive finally gotten around to making a video.
    If you listen closely youll hear the air pumping.

      I thought the aim of the click clacks, was to push the air through the grinder, dislodging any last grinds left in there, so they dont go stale. When he flicks the lid it pushes the air through and does the same thing.

        Exactly.
        I never used the click-clack when I had the Rocky, but this is the same process I follow with my Macap. It does send some air through the chute and dislodges some stray grounds.

          As the others have said Goodies, its not the flicking up, but the subsequent downward air pressure that forces air through the hopper and out the chute into the doser.

          My fingers at the back act as a hinge and exert a little downward force. This speeds the fall of the lid which helps force air into the hopper.

          A few flicks, a quick brush or two of the chute and a couple of flicks of the power switch and you get almost all the grounds.
