Hi from southern Spain

Recommended Posts

Hello to the whole community. I'm from Granada, in Spain, and of course I'm also a coffee enthusiast. I discovered this forum investigating about the Niche Zero. For a month I have a Niche at home and I am really happy. Previously I had a Eureka Zenith 65E that has already been sold. Niche's partner is a Quickmill Alexia Pid (E-61, SB). I am having a lot of fun alternating different coffees and also different methods, not only espresso.

 

Greetings to all and apologies for my English.

Hi there. Where are you getting your coffee from in Granada? When I lived in Madrid a few years ago, good coffee almost didn't exist!

Hello, in Granada there are some specialty coffee shops where they also roast coffee but I usually buy the coffee by internet. In Spain there are good roasters such as San Agustín or Puchero and many others that are emerging and have good product and good online service.

I can also say that in Madrid there is currently a large offer of speciality coffee shops where you can buy good beans. Surely if you lived now there you would not have that problem.

Thanks @MildredM! I'm very happy with Niche. Being able to alternate different beans in the same day is a dream:). I was thinking about keeping the Zenith but after two weeks I felt it was unnecessary.

Hi!

So is the Niche everything it's hyped up to be.. 0.1g retention, quite motor etc?

 

Hi!

Regarding the Niche I could not add or remove anything to what was said by @DavecUK in his review. The retention is negligible and the dose consistency is amazing. For me it has fulfilled all expectations.
