Why clean my Niche Zero? - Page 5

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

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.

What a funny thing to say.

Do you have a Niche grinder?
