All good points, but this works great for me when single dosing - Take a clean teaspoon and dip the end in water or place it under a water flow for a second. Shake off so that just a drop or two remain and tap straight into the beans.
The grind cup on my Kinu M68 inverts straight into a portafilter and I use it to pre-weigh or marshal the dose into the grinder mouth. This tiny amount of water prevents the 0.1-0.2g of grind that can stick to the cone base otherwise. But it's not enough to cause the grind to stick when I invert the cup onto the portafilter. Result - weight in weight out within the 0.1g measurement limit of my scale.
I can't claim originality - James Hoffman has it on his video blog and he credits someone else.....
