YES!  Not a lot though. At first you may get some very fine very finel sprays comng out but not like a big mess or something. If you really screwed it up I can see how it could make a mess but you would really have to mess it up big time. I have adjusted the doser down to reduce the amount coming out into the PF and I keep moving it around to create very small piles of coffee. THen  give it  few gentle skakes to help distribute it, then one settling tap.  I then top it off and scrape off with my finger. Tamp and tap the side to clear off grinds from the side of PF then a finishing twist of the tamper with no real pressure. This seems to work well. I actually was able to reduce the grind size with this method but still pulling shots at around 30 seconds. Do you think this is till too long? I guess I could reduce the amount of coffee in the PF.
