I grind into a yogurt cup sitting in a sauce cup stuck to the scale with a command strip.  It is neat and almost effortless.

Is the hopper they give you just not that functional?

excellent!

looks like no one replied about the hopper question you asked.  If you haven't figured it out by now, the hopper sits on top of the grinder and holds beans to feed them through the throat and into the burrs, where they are ground.  at the other end of the burrs, the grounds are thrown out through a chute into either a doser or (if no doser) your basket or other receptacle.  The cut yogurt cup, serving as a dosing funnel, sits on the basket/pf assembly to help guide the grounds into the basket (instead of all over the counter).

So, happy birthday?

I'm also curious why you use a yogurt cup rather than the standard bin?
