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 ???

Also, it states that you shouldn't use flavored coffee, however, both the missus and I like to enjoy a hazelnut creme or similar flavored coffee every once in a while.  I know that flavored (and decaf) beans are more oily but is it really that bad to grind and brew these beans a few times a week ??

The new Krups grind and brew appears to work about the same way so if there IS a better way it has not been found. And this leftover coffee is part of the problem with flavored beans, some of them go into the "wrong" pot of coffee. I bought a cheapo blade grinder for my occasional flavored beans, and I also use my Keurig single serve machine for flavored coffees.
