The Plastic cellars have a bit too much volume for my single doses (20G) that fit perfectly (very little headroom) in the glass tall boy cellars. So the plastic cellars have a lot of extra air in them. And, if a new variant of the cellars not only matched the tall boy volume, but also the outer diameter so that they fit nicely into the existing bases, that would be a win-win from my perspective.
First of all thank you to everyone for the kind words. It's always appreciated. There's nothing easy about small scale manufacturing and trust me, I reconsider this path daily and it's always nice to get positive messages.
Here are my thoughts on the capacity of the plastic Bean Cellars. Unfortunately there isn't a Goldilock's size since everyone has different dose preferences. I originally thought it was better to err on the size of too large rather than too small. In regards to the air gap or empty space at the top of the column of beans, here's my completely unsubstantiated thoughts. When coffee out-gasses C02, it displaces the air at the top of the cellar. C02 is heavier than air, and it sinks. If the cellar is upright, the beans should be sitting in a blanket of C02, while any remaining air which causes oxidation or staleness hovers above that blanket.
I hear you loud and clear in regards to developing a caddy
