    Macap M2M GOD

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi guys, have only had my new Macap M2M grinder for a short while (about 1 month). I have tried a few different beans and am playing around with learning the right grind settings for the specific bean. Just recently I have tried some beans ans when grinding, it seems to spit out far more messy than all the other ones. The bean pours well so it seems the grind setting is good. What can cause it to be so much more messy than my other beans?

    Cheers in advance

    The beans, their freshness, the weather, the grind setting. Some beans grind 'cleaner' than others. It's just the way it is.

    If it's too messy for you invest in an OE dosing funnel or use a cut yoghurt cup.

    I have an M2M also.

    It's generally static electricity that causes this. And this can be caused by a few different things as KG has pointed out above. The most common causes when grinding for espresso are a very dark roast, a lower quality bean/roast, and low humidity at the time of grinding.
    I always use a funnel when dosing and since I've been using it I've wondered why I didn't start doing so a long time ago. Mine is home made from a plastic cup, but if you want something pretty you'll wan to look at the OE funnels or the CoffeeCatcha.

    Experimented with plastic water fountain cups until I got the right depth and width, then rolled a couple of layesr of duct tape around it to stop it cracking - that was 3 years ago - still using he same one.
