Hi everyone, I bought a Starbucks Barista burr grinder and used it for the first time today. I was amazed at the resulting static electricity and the grounds that ended up everwhere. Is this typical of all burr grinders? I am an obsessive person and the mess that this grinder made annoys me. Is there a better choice (for the same money, $125) that does not have this problem?

I found that to be true with all my burr grinders, in particular with the darker roasts.

I have a barista, and grind my coffee about 5 or 10 minutes before I am going to use it. Everything gets unstuck and I have no mess

Thanks for the tip David, I'll try it. Do you have any experience with manual coffee mills?

I have some antique mills that I use on occasion. They are only good for press pot, IMO. I have no experience with the new one.
