No more staticky coffee grounds

What can I do to reduce static cling on my glass coffee grinder hopper so less coffee sticks to the sides and makes a big mess?

I have a Bodum Bistro burr grinder
, which I bought in part because it has a glass hopper that was supposed to reduce the problem of static cling. But it's super duper dry in the winter, and I'm having a lot of trouble with large quantities of coffee first sticking to the hopper and then when I tap it, flying all over everywhere.
Are there clever techniques that can reduce this annoyance?
I don't know if it makes a difference, but I use pretty oily french roast coffee beans.
(How do you spell staticky, anyway? The k looks wrong. Staticy is clearly wrong "stat-i-sy?". But,static-y seems like the right adjective.)
