  1. I can sympathize with you. I'm still reeling from the shock of the financial burden caused by having to purchase these essential items. 😀😁
  2. I admit that I've continued stirring the grinds in the basket. On the other hand, I haven't tried without stirring so I don't really know if stirring is necessary, it's just become part of my work flow.
  3. I've not experienced any issues with mine.
  4. I've just ordered mine. 9.99 with no shipping charge doesn't seem so bad in the grand scheme of things. I'm more than happy with my Niche Zero, (got it last April) and if this makes it perform even better, well then I'm happy to plonk down a tenner. YMMV
  5. Acaia (yes, the company that makes that expensive scale) makes a dosing cup for the 58mm portafilter: https://acaia.co/products/acaia-portafilter-dosing-cup
  6. I bought mine through Indiegogo. ? ?
  7. The Slow Pour Supply Company in the U.S. (Texas) is selling the Niche Zero: https://www.slowpoursupply.co/niche-zero
  8. Is it possible to return the grinder? It's really not designed for espresso, so it's putting you at a real disadvantage.
  9. I have no clue whether Dave did or did not pay for the Niche grinders. I certainly hope he did not! I do product testing that is 100% unrelated to anything coffee. This takes quite a lot of time and effort on my part... testing, providing feedback, etc. I do not purchase said products, some of which are considerably costlier than the Niche Zero. Actually, if my goal was simply to own these products, it would be much cheaper to just purchase them outright as my time, effort and expertise are certainly worth considerably more than the price of the products.
  10. I'll leave the comments regarding grind suggestions up to others, but I do want to comment regarding your impression of the Niche's appearance. Form follows function in the case of the Niche. Frankly, I've not yet seen a grinder that has impressed me as being a thing of beauty. In fact the majority of them, to me anyway, look just plain butt ugly. But pretty is as pretty does, and any good consistent grinder is a thing of beauty because of its performance, not the shell it wears.
  11. The two cup solution would probably be a good one for me. This morning, as my beans were being nicely ground, I realized I was holding the cup in my hand while a lovely mound of ground coffee was being created directly beneath the Niche's chute. I think my dog was laughing at me!
  12. Mine has the shiny ball bearing. I don't think the nail polish would look too good... not really an effective way to cover a hole. I would go to a craft or hobby shop and pick up a shiny bead to fit the hole. Use some clear nail polish in the hole to make sure the bead stays in place.
