My 3D printed stand + funnel height is 83mm / 3.268". The diameter of the funnel is 76mm. It just fits when centered on the bolt.

I got in on the February batch... which apparently will ship mid February, its going to be tough to wait! In fact I looked at alternatives but its amazing how few of grinders put it all together like the Niche. Grind quality, no slippage, ability to grind for espresso and drip, single dosing with minimal retention, plus small footprint. It actually seems uncontested right now....

I went with the black one simply because I have a white granite counter tops, Also my espresso machine and electric kettle have black elements to them. I just sold my grinder yesterday got lucky and sold for $770, I just really want to get the NZ Because of the size and the fact that its single dose.

Grind quality is excellent. It uses large 63mm Mazzer Kony burrs.

Has that been definitely confirmed? (and is that 'Burr Set A' in Dave C's review?)

Definitely using Mazzer Kony Burrs (genuine)....they were the burr that passed all testing, including giving the best grind quality.
