i'm sure this has come up and I vaguely remember reading about it on this site.
received this lovely machine for xmas and am quite satisfied w. everything except for the topic of this thread...It leaves at least a tablespoon full of ground coffee in the chute after operation. as a short term solution, tedious and painstaking as it is, I just take off the cap over the chute itself and manually scrape it out, tip the unit forward to get the rest of the grounds out, scrape it out and, well, that's about it.
tell me there's a better way ???

I bought a cheapo blade grinder for my occasional flavored beans, and I also use my Keurig single serve machine for flavored coffees. Al
