0.4g is very little amount of retention compared to most if not all grinders in this price range.

You can updose if you want to get over 34g and scoop out the excess.

0.01g scales won’t make you happier. Is 17.93g better than 18.07g? That’s what I was wondering this morning...

0.01g scales are quicker reacting for dosing to 0.1g (because of the overshoot/undershoot mentioned above). But if you want 1 set of scales to weigh both dose & brew, 0.1g scales are just fine.

You can't ascertain whether your dose is +/-0.4g with most 0.1g scales.

18.07 is 0.14g (less than a tenth of a bean?) more than 17.93g, no better, no worse, no tangible difference in terms of brew.

Thanks for the replies. I guess I was mainly wondering if I should be using my silicone muffin cup to purge out the remaining coffee or should I leave it and just continue to grind until all the voids are filled etc.

I guess I will try the no purge method after looking at Dave's videos on YouTube.

I understand .2g or even .3g is minimal so I'm still happy either way.

Muffin cup's a smart solution to a problem that doesn't exist 😊 

Definitely do not purge the Niche. There needs to be some grounds retained in the internals to give you a very small "retention" for subsequent uses. That's why if you do a deep clean by removing the burrs, you'll notice the "retention" is higher for the first couple of uses. Dave's reviews cover retention/grounds exchange and what to expect in some detail.

Understood! I guess I was just so use to purging on my old grinder and using a brush etc that I thought it would benefit the NZ. 

I guess not! Will not purge from now on and just let it be.
