So your grinder is retaining coffee at a rate of .1g per dose? What eventually happens, does it fill up? :lol:

Edit: Oh, snap. Didn't see the previous two posts that were better than mine. ;)

Definitely! - usually weigh out whole beans about 0.7 to 1.0 grams more than what my goal weight is (16.0 grams in my case), rdt, grind into a cup, then place the portafilter and funnel on the scale, zero it, dump in coffee and spoon off the extra to get within 0.2g, wdt, remove funnel, tamp. There are too many other variables not to weigh what actually goes in the basket.

Yea, good one...

So by your logic I will eventually have 100,000,000 grams retained? Makes sense... no, sorry.

I'm not sure. Mine required a shim pretty quickly after unboxing to keep the grind setting in place, otherwise it would drift. That wouldn't explain retention, but my point is that these grinders don't always come out of the factory operating at 100%. My guess, compared to mine, is that it's defective. One of the main reasons I bought this grinder was because of the supposed near-zero retention, which has proven to be true in my case. If it were me, I would contact Baratza, I've been quite happy with mine status-post shim.

Yea, wow, you guys really got me...

I'm sure that since there's so much wit bouncing between the three of you that you can combine your smart brains and perhaps reach a different conclusion... I can give you a hint if you need it.
