No disrespect to you or your company Bryan, but I've always thought of this "break-in" practice with a new grinder as a complete waste of coffee. IMO, 25 lbs of whole beans is a helluva lot to be throwing right into the garbage can. Sometimes I think Espresso Nerds and Audiophiles are two in the same... ;p
Why not just do a two for one special the day or two or three that you all are supposedly "breaking in" the new grinder and explain the reasoning behind it to the customers? They surely won't mind and everyone comes out a winner that way.

I've also heard this from other owners and seen it's clumping firsthand as well. Stay away IMO... it's much too $$$ for a flat-burr grinder anyways.
Just go with another Robur E and use your Kony E for the SO's. Problem solved!
