If coffee ground static gets on your nerves as much as it does mine, you’re going to love this trick.

James Hoffmann, World Barista Champion and author of the World Coffee Atlas (an incredible book), released a video demonstrating how to eliminate coffee ground static that occurs when you grind your coffee.

My primary grinder, the incredible Baratza Virtuoso, is notorious for creating a lot of static and sometimes causes my coffee counter to be quite dirty.

This trick fixed the issue in no time. I’ve been doing this for the last two weeks, and my counter has never been cleaner.

Here’s the video, which first appeared on JimSeven, James Hoffmann’s blog.

Apparently this is also known as the RDT (Ross Droplet Technique)

Video Transcript:
Today we’re going to cover a super quick simple little hack that will get rid of all of the static you get when you’re grinding coffee at home.
All you’re going to need for this is a tea spoon or a spoon this is a trick I learned from guy called John Ouma cough who’s better known as Jackie.
Online he’s built some amazing machines is a super smart guy what we’re gonna do is add the tiniest amount of water to our beans before we grind them and I mean tiny.
All you’re gonna do once you’ve weighed out your beans, you’re gonna grab your spoon, you’re going to run it quickly under the tab – just the handle, stir the spoon handle into the beans and then grind them that’s it.
That’s all you have to do and it gets rid of all the static that accumulates in the bin no damage to the grinder and their damage to the beans no damage to the drink it is super quick super simple and it’s kind of amazing
