[Homeroast] Is Decaf just staticy?

I've noticed this with dark roasts, into FC+ and beyond with regular coffee,
but I haven't roasted decaf in a long time and can't remember if I noticed
it there or not.  I'd guess it probably happened with decaf too.  I hate it
when it happens because I lose a lot of coffee and it makes a big mess.

I don't know why it happens, but it has happened to me many times with
various grinders.
