Hi All - Looking for a cup to weigh/RDT my beans in.

Ideally similar to the narrow one that comes with the Weber key.

Appreciate the help!

I use a little wax paper Dixie cup. Mine have Winnie the Pooh characters on them.

I ordered one of this nearly a month ago and still waiting its arrival. I plan on using it in place of the dosing cup that came with the Key.

Here's something to consider. I use these stainless cups with my DF64: https://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Steel- ... B07227VCM3

I use this:

It's oval so easy to spray water into and easy to pour from the side.

FYI, I found RDT in Hoffmann's dosing tray to be inconvenient due to the shallow shape of the tray. Thus, although the (smaller) tray is very convenient for moving small amounts of coffee around, I won't be using the tray with the Key, unfortunately. (I had an HG-One and have two Pharoi; I'm pretty sure heavy RDT will be needed with the Key for much of the year where I live.)

I characterize Hoffmann's tray as a small luxury. It won't make your coffee taste better, but I wouldn't want to stop using it (with other grinders). Dixie cups, yogurt containers, silicone pinch bowls/bakeware, small cream/steaming pitchers, condiment containers, or any number of other vessels will serve the same purpose.

Well darn, I was hoping I would go from the WW bean cellars to the dosing tray solely for RDT. The Key's dosing cup works, it's just a little small.

When I'm not using my Weber bean counter (it has it's own very cool cup) I use these stainless steel shot "glasses." It would be better if they were slightly bigger for RDT, but they work well. I dose beans by hand into three of these once or twice a day, and I puff fines into a fourth I keep by my grinder.

For $13 dollars there are twelve cups.
