I have been grinding my coffee pretty extensively with the Hario Mini Mill. Currently I'm using a pretty fine grind for the aeropress, that is used for very fast brewing time, total brew time is about one minute including pressing down time.

What I have notice about grinding with the Hario Mini Mill is that it is very quick (I'm grinding 15 grams, enough for a mug full of coffee). Usually, I would have my water in the microwave for three minutes and then while waiting for the water to get to boiling temperature, I would start grinding; I have not officially time it but it probably take less than two minutes. I usually finish grinding the coffee by the time the water is boiled.

I have been noticing that there is some insignificant static clinging of ground coffee to the area under the burrs. These are pretty insignificant amount, probably less than 0.5gram. I usually just use a grinder brush to clean it off. Also, there is some fine ground that can be retained in the ground chamber that need some pretty hard thump to get out.

Anyway, I will further investigate the Hario and will report back.

<br>Looks like light roast chaff to me - that stuff clings to everything.

Most beans that I've ground do the same thing. I usually just tap the top part of the grinder against my portafilter to shake them off without waste.

I've been using a handheld vacuum to suck this stuff out of the chute on my Preciso lately. Don't see why you couldn't do the same.

I find that light roasted beans give off a chaff when grinding, perhaps the problem?

I am curious how it goes across platforms.

Yeah, I think all grinders end up with some degree of this, just have to brush em.
