Looks like they are now shipping to Canada so if people are looking for it, you don't have to go through the hassle of a cross border shipping company.

Previously discussed, here's one of a few previous threads Niche Zero grinder. NZ starting shipping to Canada once production moved to Hong Kong. Earlier production that shipped to U.S. and other countries were built in the U.K.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

I placed my order on Friday and I asked when they'll ship it and was told after 7/8. They were very responsive. Looking forward to trying the grinder.

I ordered mine on June 12 and got it June 14. I don't know how it got to me so quickly in CA.

Wow! That was fast... my Niche took a week to arrive in CA.

I think that once they got some sales and cash flow going they started to bring them to the US en mass to a shipping distributor.

Then they are just shipped to the end-user. That's my guess.

Or they negotiated a very deep deal with FedEx.

But it's just another example of the Niche folks having their eyes on the ball and getting the important things done.

I haven't seen as competent a launch from a new startup in a very long time.

Really nice to see that "yes, it can be done". It was looking pretty dire on a lot of the Kickstarter and Indiegogo projects.

Always way late and often flaky performance to boot.

I know of a 3D printer where they took in about $300K and it is dead with no units delivered.

The sad thing is the guy went forward without ever consulting experts.

They would have told him to not bother, that you could not do what he claimed he could.

So there is now a decent sized group of people each out about $5500.

Okay, now going to go make today's Cappy No.2 with my Zero.

How much did you all pay in tax and duties?

Actually, I don't remember! I must have deliberately blocked that unpleasant detail from memory. :D
