Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.

As the owner of a monolith flat, I have finally stopped suffering from grinder upgrade-itis. One thing that did catch my eye in the Niche Zero review though was the grind catch cup, which is apparently designed to mate with a 58mm basket in cocktail shaker fashion. That sounds like a handy accessory for any number of grinders. Any chance its available separately, or does anyone know of something similar made by someone else?

I know I've seen one from another company, but am having a really hard time finding it right now!

I haven't tried either, but LWW has two cups, the blind tumbler and blind shaker. Full disclosure: LWW is one of our HB sponsors.

Here's their 11 second demo:

Thanks for the input all. The LWW stuff is a little fancier (and pricier) than I had in mind, and I don't think it would fit easily with the portafilter forks on my monolith. The Acai thing looks promising, although it is presently back ordered. Anybody have one? In the mean time, I have sent an email to the Niche folks, will report back on what they have to say.

ImageI have an LWW blind tumbler which I use daily to grind into on my MonoFlat. It works very well and then fits on top of the 58 mm basket.

So word from the Niche folks is that they are considering it but cup is not available seperately just yet.

mgwolf: that looks better than I expected, for some reason it didn't occur to me to lower the forks and put the cup on top. I was thinking more along the lines of needing something with a lip.

Tiamo make one but not sure of a source in the US.
