I attempted to reply to an old thread, Reducing Grinder Static
, but it's been locked due to age so I'm starting a new thread to break out a nugget posted on the The New HG One Grinder: The Home Test
thread, that adding one or two droplets of water to the beans before grinding resolves the static issue.
This tidbit was dug up by Andy Schecter and credited to David Ross from a 2005 Alt.Coffee post.
I haven't tried this trick yet, but it's much cheaper and easier than buying a Zerostat gun.
I'm breaking this out on it's own thread because I imagine that not everyone is following the HG-One grinder thread or the other hand grinder thread this was mentioned on.Update:
Thread title has been changed to reflect the new name for this procedure, the Ross Droplet Technique (RDT).
