[Homeroast] irritation when measuring beans for espresso

I use my Mazzer Mini E both for brewed coffee and also for espresso. Since I 
have different beans I only put the necessary beans in the grinder for the 
coffee and espresso I am making. This works fine for AE and Vacuum brewing, 
but with Espressos it seems to be different even though I measure out the 
same amount of beans for the first and second espresso there are more coffee 
in the grind of the second espresso.

Obviously it must have something to do with coffee beeing trapped somewhere 
in the grinder, but I try to make sure that all the beans in the hopper is 
always beeing grinded.

Any ideas how to avoid this situation other than weighing each portion of 
espresso after it is grinded would be nice.
