Topic: Zass and static electricity (10 msgs / 114 lines)
1) From: Jason Sheldon
About 6 months ago, I started having a problem with static electricity
with a Zassenhaus grinder.  I was wondering if anyone has any
solutions or suggestions to this problem.  I don't get what changed
where I now have an issue with static.

Are you in cold country? Six months ago is when the furnaces kick on in
northern climes, and it gets drier. That seems in increase static
electricity problems.

I live in San Francisco.  It stays pretty moist year round.

Maybe it is weather related?  ie: humidity.

I purchased a new Zassenhaus last week and the grinds have much more static
than the grinds with the Rocky which have almost none. I live in the Denver
area and the house is humidified to about 35 - 40% RH in the bedrooms (set
to just starting to have condensation on the windows at 0 degrees outside
temp). I will start to monitor the RH in the kitchen to see if I can find
any correlation. There are no other static electricity issues at this
humidity. No suggestions for a solution. Just my observations.

Are you roasting lighter than you used to? Darker roasts are less prone to
static electricity, in my experience.

That might be it.  I like my roasts on the lighter side of things.
