About Niche Coffee

The Inventor

Delicious coffee can only be achieved with high quality, freshly ground coffee. Historically, most electric coffee grinders were designed for commercial environments. Back in 2014, Martin Nicholson (founder) identified that these coffee grinders were unsuitable for home use because they were big and noisy, but most importantly retained too much ground coffee, resulting in stale tasteless brews. Understanding this, Martin embarked on a mission to create a single dose, zero retention coffee grinder to revolutionise the domestic coffee experience. With this, Niche Coffee was born.

Leading the revolution

Over the course of the next 4 years, we set out to bring the vision to life, assembling a small close-knit team. A combination of technical engineering and development of over 30 prototypes resulted in the ground-breaking Niche Zero Grinder.

Using Indiegogo to fund the initial manufacturing, we were extremely grateful and proud of the support the Niche Zero received from the coffee community - turning a dream into reality.

Chapter Duo

The coffee community was clear about what they wanted next, and we listened. Working closely with industry leading experts we developed the Niche Duo - a flat burr grinder, encapsulating the key benefits of the much loved Niche Zero.

We identified that different burr types excelled at specific brewing methods and delivering different taste profiles. However, the traditional process of changing burrs is difficult and delivers inconsistent results. The Niche Duo’s patented design provides a unique and simple way to switch between burr sets and optimise the grinder for any brewing method.
