It's only in the teens here and the heat is on big time, consequently, it's dry as a bone! This process totally eliminated the static/ground retention that I usually experience. The question I have is how many "spritzs" do you usually apply to the beans? I did two 14g doubles in my LaPavoni. I spritzed each one 3 times before grinding ... too much?
Too much. Or not. It depends on what your retention/static looks like. Pretty much every type of epsresso roast I've put thru my grinder has all the problems cured with one quick spray. Do a test grind weighing before and after if you need to, but I think you're overthinking it.
Tom, that's exactly what I did. 14.1g in = 14.1g out ... no retention. Next time I'll try just one spritz and see how it goes.

That Speedster would be like my GS/3 and result in more of a pressure washing episode
Thanks for the info on the tamper.
Yes, the Speedster steam boiler is set to 2.3 bar so there is plenty of steam pressure. It came with 2 4 hole tips. I believe I could steam clean a car engine using the tip with the larger holes if I hooked up an extension hose.

For an 18g dose I use one to two pumps max for the HG-One. None for the K10.
