[Homeroast] Is Decaf just staticy?

My wife was recently told she needs to avoid caffeine, so I picked up some 
-Donkey Blend
-Decaf Ethiopia Sidamo WP
-Decaf Brazil Joao de Campos
-Decaf Uganda Bugisu WP

So far, what we have tried has been outstanding.  I have roasted the Donkey Blend and the Ethiopia.  My wife has really enjoyed both.  With Donkey, she's been pleased with her morning capp, saying that she really doesn't feel like she's giving anything up.  The Ethiopia, is probably the best coffee that we have ever prepared in our drip machine (it must be well suited to lower temp brewing, cause our machine is just a basic Krups pro-aroma)  

One weird thing that I notice now is that there is a huge difference in static from grinding regular coffee compared to decaf in my Vario.  When I grind my regular coffee, I see a nice fluffy pile of coffee that mostly comes straight down out of the grinder chute.  But when I grind the decaf, it goes all over the place and I get something more resembling a crater.  
Has anyone else noticed this?  Any ideas why?
