    MDF dosing help required

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive been using the MDF I bought from shultzy for a little while now at work.

    Its a way less messy than the EM0450 and gets through every last been easy.

    I measure using the double basket and get it all back in grinds.

    My problem is that without tamping half way through dosing, tapping will not settle the grinds enough to stop the last dose from spilling as I remove the PF from under the hopper.

    How have others avoided this problem with the MDF dosered model?

    I have a wee plastic container that I put the grinds into instead of dosing straight into the PF. Less messy that way. Then it is just a matter of scooping the grinds into the pf. Less mess and still fast - especially if I need to tap the remaining grinds out of the chute.

    Ikea has these great wee plastic bowls for kidlets that only cost a couple of dollars for a set. I use one of those.
