< ="text/">Perhaps am I the only person that is consistently irritated by the amount of coffee waste that happens during the course of pulling shots. As a person who has to travel 90 miles to the nearest roastery, it sure would be nice to get some input from others who have been saving waste for longer than I. There is obviously a lot of beans that gets left in the grinder during the course of use, especially when using particularly oily beans. Also, I am inexperienced, but I have developed the habit of flushing a bit of coffee through the grinder at the new grind setting to make sure that I am getting all the grounds at the new setting and fresh. Is this necessary, and if so, what do you do with all this excess of perfectly good bean? Will the espresso machine cleaner be able to reduce the waste?
I would be interested to know if anyone else has had success in reducing their wastes or has found something besides fertilizer to use it for.

I don't grind my own, Zachery, so can't help you with your question. Wish I had time to roast and grind my own, but that's sadly not in the cards. 

I do, however, want to welcome you to our little corner of the culinary world. We're a diverse group, with a range of experience and interests. So you should fit right in.

Don't be afraid to jump right in to any existing threads, or even to start a few of your own.  One place to start would be the Member's Lounge forum, where you can tell us a little about yourself and your culinary interests.  Obviously, coffee is one of them, but I'm sure you have others.  

Looking forward to hearing more from you.
