    Macap M4 Doser- How to wiegh the shots?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    In my quest for a second grinder I am considering a Macap M4 doser grinder. I prefer to weigh my shots, so I grind into a plastic drinking cup. Then, after getting the correct weight I want I will sprinkle the coffee grinds/clumps into the PF.

    If I get the Macap M4 doser, will there be enough room on the bottom to place the plastic drinking cup underneath? And if not, how would I go about weighing the dose without having to pop out the PF basket every time? The PF itself is to heavy for the gram scale.

    If there is not enough room under the doser--cut the cup down! You only need room for 20 grams or so.

    If you are not going to use the doser--how about an M4D doserless?

    I am with Greg. You would be better to choose a doserless grinder. The Compak K3P will do the job for you. Bonus of the M4D is that the digital timer is very accurate and I suspect you would find that a timed grind would allow you to dispense with your drinking cup altogether.

    Cheers

    I have a Macap M5 doser and weigh my beans before grinding.
    20g in - 20g out.

    No need for a plastic cup at all.
