You could be super miserly and not discard, but your first shot after a change will be a mixture of old and new, and the pour will drift ever so slightly on the second shot after the adjustment. Then again, if you're not super picky or you're serving a latte lover, it may not matter. :lol:
Sweeping out the tunnel with a brush is no longer possible with the Kony, hence I too run the grinder for a few seconds when I havent used it for a few hours. But I collect these grinds and use them to season the cleaned PF in the morning when otherwise the first espresso has a somewhat metallic taste
