2019 Niche Zero in White


Recommended Posts

Hello!

Herewith selling my flawless white Niche Zero that had been bought as cupping/tasting grinder in February 2019. When a certain Mazzer ZM came along, I've moved it to the office where it had been used with the old LaPavoni, lately. Now that LaDiva is retiring, I shall part ways with this here cutie as well...

 

It comes complete with brush and grind cup, all looks like new, has seen mild usage of around 10 kilos of beans (just recalculated, it cannot be more than that). Everything is in perfect working order, nest and clean. Will ship from Austria with love and original box.

 

Price is a fixed 425GBP posted (DPD incl. insurance).

Is that a yes you want it , or a I think I might .. best to be clear in these threads. 

Sorry @Mrboots2u - I do want to make an offer.

Matt - 

I know you said fixed but would £410 + a small bag of coffee beans be acceptable to reflect repeat customer and shipping costs / hassle savings?

By the way, the paypal friends and family option has a £3 fee because your account is not registered in the UK (that's the only logical explanation from speaking to support) which I would be happy to cover if you wish.

Also, do you have any idea of when the burrs would need replacing and how much it would cost? 

Best,

Otis

@Flamingo I think Niche (Mazzer conical) burrs are good for about 800Kg. You'll likely never have to replace them. After the 10kgs Hasi's whacked in them they should be bedded in nicely as fresh burrs need a bit of time to reach their peak performance.

Thanks for clearing this up for me @Gavin. I don't think I will ever use that much unless I change careers! 

Thought to ask because I read somewhere that Mazzer Super Jolly ones need to be replaced every 75kg.

@Flamingo - Nicked from @DavecUK's Niche review

"The Niche Zero has the same quality burrs you will find in famous name commercial grinders costing £1,200. They are food grade 63mm conical burrs from a leading Italian burr manufacturer. A Mazzer Kony has the same size burrs, in fact Kony burrs from Mazzer would just pop right in. The specially hardened food grade burrs, last 70% longer than standard hardened steel burrs. This gives less contamination as there is less wear and hence the term food grade. Burr life is in the region of 750Kg of ground coffee (source: burr manufacturer), or around 20 years home use!"

That review must be from before the niche went into production as they decided to fit genuine Mazzer burrs as standard.

Well done@flamingo sorted yourself a really great setup, you should be really pleased.

It’s strange I had a niche for a short while, the way it looked didn’t appeal to me at least,the taste in the cup didn’t exactly blow me away(could have been unseasoned burrs)and I wasn’t a big fan of the switch at the side and yet still I nearly bought this before your offer. Made me realise just how little there is that compares to it and despite some small things that weren’t to my taste I’d be keen to have one again.

It was, Mazzer burrs most likely (depending on whether they could get supply), so I had to be deliberately obtuse as they were worried Mazzer might get upset. The specification is good for the Mazzer Kony burrs though. The food grade was put in as a red herring. All burrs are food grade, but one manufacturer actually uses the term. Well done @Flamingo you will enjoy using the grinder.

 

Oh and if you did need genuine burrs in 20 or 30 years time they are currently around £110-£130 but even then it's not guaranteed to get genuine, anything at £90 or less will always be cheaper non OEM burrs whatever the vendor says and genuine ones will always have "Mazzer 191C" on them.

Your correct about running in but I found the worst aspect disappeared pretty quickly and changed rather than totally spoilt the drink. Later I found it was also better to alter prep, quantity and ratios.

There are a number of commercial grinders about that allow very fine adjustments but when it's from widely different settings none really match Niche for the time it takes to do it.
