  1. That’s really helpful folks. Around £90 seems fair perhaps. Hard to know when they aren’t selling as often now. eBay isn’t the most accurate gauge of current value! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Now that I’m using a Niche Zero, and delighted to have made the upgrade, I’ve got a spare Gaggia MDF grinder. A mate has suggested buying it off me as a second grinder and want to give it a decent valuation but fair. Anyone have an idea what a used one is valued at? Was bought 2010 I think and has EU plug with adaptor for UK. Still working as new, helped by a period not using at all. I’m thinking around £100-£150 but any thoughts would be helpful!

  3. I’m 35 to maybe I’ll add it to mine! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Everyone rating Airscape over Atmos? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks to all. My Niche arrived and I have to say so far very impressed. The workflow and single dosing a huge advantage to me. I did seem to be grinding a higher number to begin with, recalibrated but still around the 24 mark albeit perhaps slightly older beans needing that. Timing shots much much better than before and we’ll worth the investment I’d say
  6. Just to follow up on this. I too am looking for storage canisters. Is the Airscape (ceramic) the preferred for all or is there anyone that prefers the Atmos?
  7. Placed just in time then! Didn’t have my model number to hand but can reply with them later if it helps! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Got the email saying back in stock. Is there a forum discount for these? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for the feedback so far. Still seems like Specialita is the best alternative still. Probably enough comments on the lines of what I thought to persuade me more towards the Niche. I’m using for myself and aesthetically it’s a neat wee thing that won’t clutter my kitchen more. Retention seems like a major point so the savings of waste may be substantial especially compared to current MDF. The ability to switch beans easily (eg to decaf) also very helpful for me. Sounds like worth the extra as I was wondering. The kicker would be if there was enough advantage with one of the alterna
  10. The Specialita is a consideration, Atom a little on the pricey side for me. At £360-370 though is it worth the extra £130 to get a Niche? I tend to be doing single dosing so it makes sense perhaps. But apart from that is there any advantage to either I should consider? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hi all, I’m still working with a Gaggia MDF grinder which I’ve had for some 10 years now. It’s paired with a Gaggia Classic of similar age. Now I’m more into my espresso making every day after a lockdown reinvigoration I’m considering next steps for an upgrade. I’m drawn to going for a Niche Zero but before I do want to consider what other options there are before going for one. Anyone have better/alternative suggestions for a home espresso set up grinder to go for? Or is the Niche worth the investment? Thanks folks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Got Yaguas now which are better but thinking of trying bottomless as well for larger shot glasses. Any recommendations folks for a Gaggia Classic? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Got a set of Yaguas now too, better size but could do with a touch extra lea way. Came really quickly! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Went for these which arrived today. Sadly don’t give the clearance for shot glasses under portafilter unless removing drip tray. Do folk tend to get the shorter drip tray to solve this? Or are there others with better clearance? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
