For this week equipment review, we are back with one of our favorite topics! Coffee is by far one of our most successful topics in this website. Today we bring you something special! Something that was built to change the market of coffee grinders. So, without further ado, it’s time to show you the Niche Coffee Grinder review. But before we got to the review there is something that you need to know.
If this is the first time you are reading one of our coffee reviews you need to know that we are crazy about coffee. In fact, we like this topic so much that in the last few months we decided to start a journey in order to discover the best coffee equipment on the market. Luckily we are not alone in this – now we have on board the guys from abcoffee.
Having them with us means a lot! We finally find some crazy people who like coffee as much as we do (or even more, but they don’t need to know that).
Freshly ground coffee is key if you want to make great coffee at home. Not many people realize it, but truly fresh ground beans are essential for great coffee taste. Unfortunately, sometimes not even some electric grinders, will give you the freshest ground coffee. You are now, probably questioning yourself why we are saying this, but in fact the answer is quite simple.
Once the coffee is ground, the powder will stay fresh for a couple of minutes. After that, the oils and aromatics quickly turn stale and bitter. What happens in many grinders is that some of this coffee, called residue, stays in the machine, tainting every subsequent batch of ground coffee. No matter how great your coffee beans are, they’ll be mixing in with this unpleasant residue.
If you really want to get the get truly fresh coffee out of your grinder you will need to look for one with zero retained grind. But you don’t need to spend your time looking for one because we already found it. We are talking about the Niche Zero Coffee Grinder!
The Niche Zero Grinder’s unique technology means that there’s virtually zero retained grind. You get all the taste and quality of the beans you’ve paid for. All of the beans are ground and all of the ground coffee leaves the grinder. In our tests, the performance was simply amazing we only get a residue of 0.1g, which is pretty incredible.
When we start this Niche Coffee Grinder Review, the first thing that caught our attention was the build quality. Built from the finest materials and to the highest standards, the Niche Zero Grinder is the Rolls-Royce of coffee grinders. Its classic design is complemented by an all-metal aluminum body combined with oak features. Quality never goes out of style!
The attention to details in this grinder is absolutely incredible. From the aluminum body to the retractable power cord, everything was clearly built with a purpose. As this was not enough it even comes with its own brush and a great quality stainless steel grind cup, with the Niche logo engraved on the bottom.
Besides the Niche Zero great build quality, another aspect that makes it so unique is its professional performance. Many coffee grinders promise professional performance, but only a few can give you that. The Niche Zero Coffee Grinder is one of these models, with premium 63mm conical burs that give you perfectly consistency grind coffee and the ability to control the variables. With such premium burs and with virtually zero residues, you will be able to produce the right quantity of fresh grind you need for immediate use by weighing out your beans, knowing you’ll get the same weight in grind.
Another attribute that gives this grinder professional performance is its wide spectrum of coffee brewing methods. Simply move the grind dial to your chosen setting and expertly grind for that brew method, from espresso, pour over, automatic drip, moka, right through French press and beyond. Ranging from 0 to 50 you really have the ability to specifically choose the exactly grind consistency that you want for your coffee. We have tested many of these settings and the results were incredible, this is much more than a simple home coffee grinder. We are so confident in the performance of this grinder, that we can say for sure, that it is suitable for a small specialty coffee shop. And we only say small, because it only grinds 50g of coffee bean at a time.
Incredibly the professional performance of the Niche Zero doesn’t stop here. One of the downsides of many professional grinders is the noise they make when grinding. Thankfully the Niche Team designed one with an optimal burr speed, giving you the best grind quality at a quiet 72dB. This means that the Niche Grinder could be 5 times quieter than many other top models.
All in all, one thing that it’s pretty obvious with this grinder is that the Niche team aim to produce a product that gives you the most pleasurable coffee experience possible.
