I also have some issues with the newly designed hopper, and may "retro-fit' an older hopper if position. I could even switch hoppers between the preciso and Forte.

Posted February 8, 2014 link

If you (or anyone else) decides to revert back to the early style funnel shaped bean hopper you should also order one of the rubber gaskets that go under the hopper, modify that and install it as the old style hopper when installed allows coffee grounds to get outside of the burrs into the grinder interior.

So far I have not had the gasket on long enough to determine if this completely remedies this but will post after another couple months use WITH the gasket in place.

The gasket is a little small to go over the Forte/Vario burr carrier.  I found that I needed to heat it in hot water and stretch it over the burr carrier as well as cut additional "notches" in the base rubber for the 3 ribs of the carrier to go into (stock gasket has 2 slots opposite each other, Vario and Forte have 3 ribs in a Y).

If Baratza reads these forums it might be a "plan" to modify future gasket production so that they can be used on all grinders not just the ones that come with the funnel shaped hopper (non Vario and Forte grinders) without user modifications.
