Co-founded and led by Martin, Annie and James Nicholson, Niche Zero is designed to grind fresh coffee providing users with a unique coffee shop experience in their kitchen or living room whenever needed. The Niche Zero Grinder’s unique technology means that there is virtually no retained grounds so you get all the taste and quality of the beans you’ve paid for.
Simple to use, with Niche Zero all of the beans are ground and all of the ground coffee leaves the grinder. And because you know everything leaves the grinder, it’s much easier to determine the right quantity of beans you’ll need. Niche Zero is crowdfunding to be able to fund the initial tooling and production of the Niche Zero Coffee Grinder.
