Just got an email from Niche on my January 14th order.
Niche Coffee Ltd <yourorder@dpdlocal.co.uk> "Your order from Niche Coffee Ltd has been dispatched"

It will probably still be a couple of weeks till it makes it to my home in USA.

Typically takes about 1 week after you get your notice. Sign up for the FedEx/UPS delivery notifications on their website. Then you will know when it has been handed off to them and is scheduled for delivery.

For other Canadians thinking of getting the Niche the way I did (by shipping to a friend in the U.S., and having them ship it to me)
My friends shipped to me via USPS, which gets handed over to Canada Post, and I wasn't hit with any import duties or taxes.

Awesome! Same here, just received my Niche in the mail. Pulled a quick shot and even though it ran way to long it tasted darn good (a lightly roasted Tanzanian coffee from 'The Barn'). Love the looks and the noise level. Also, the first shot had only 0.5 grams of retention (just like a lot of reviews suggested). Let's pull another couple of shots and see whether we can get down to almost zero. I'll keep ya updated whether its 'bye bye Mr. Mythos'. :mrgreen:

Yeah same here on the initial pulls and retention. I just weighted 20g, and got 20g out. Moving on from the Vario is a no brainer. Moving on from the Mythos... that's more of a fair fight :)

It is direct from Niche. They have no distribution channels anywhere that I am aware of.
