Thanks for the addition to the group. Seriously considering building a drum roaster along the lines of oldgrumpus's. Love the design and craftsmanship.

Grinder Trick - Rancilio Rocky
MarkBart
It has been rumoured that if you change grinds several times in a day for say: espresso for you, french press for Mom, Vac pot for Sis, and pour over for Bud, cleaning in between grinds can be a hassle.

A Rancilio Rocky's bean hopper is about 4 inches in diameter.
The idea is to make a plunger to clear the ground coffee from the machine between grind changes. Take a large mouth quart mason jar, slip a 1 foot length of foil dryer duct on the base, use blue painters tape to secure it. When the hopper is empty, slip the dryer duct into the hopper, place a catch mason jar under the spout, with the grinder running use the mason jar/dryer duct to pump air in and out of the hopper forcing the excess coffee grounds out of the grinder. This technique does not replace regular grinder cleaning but it does reduce the unwanted particle sizes between grinds.

The bellows! s:2

I'm not that ingenious, but a while back I picked up one of these at the suggestion of PeterZ. I found it on eBay.

It says "As Seen On TV" so it must be good for extracting soft-boiled eggs from their shells, too. ;)

I use it to clean out the grinder when I am sampling different beans or roast levels.

I bought one of those also at some unremembered store, it was marked down to almost nothing. I tossed the box into my cart and when I got it home I discovered the box was defective. There was nothing inside it, no wonder it was marked down! I never went back to exchange it since it cost less than the gas to get there. So when trimming down the end of my hose to the colander cooler, I figured this should work as good.
