Coffee beans have oil in them. Oil goes rancid. So do other organic compounds. That's why we like to keep things squeaky clean.

There are a couple of screw holes and a sweeper arm that can hold on to some very fine grounds. I find that cleaning once every couple of months seems reasonable for the light coffee I use . It's so simple that I get my youngest to clean it for his allowance.

At this point I'm just making up jobs! :roll:

This is a good enough reason for me. I enjoy taking the Niche apart and cleaning it. Of course, I'm so cautious it takes a lot longer than five minutes.

Do you have a Niche grinder?
