This only works with this link, and not available anywhere else.


I hope this helps offset some of the frustration for not being able to post right as we went live.
I am sure the link helped the frustration of some, but finding out now that you posted s secret link on here after I (and a number of others looking at the following pages) had backed your project is a bit insulting. I hope that you can make that hat available to any on home-barista. It's really not cool to the people who helped you fund so quickly (something the campaign is bragging about) to give them less for their money than the people who did participate later. I hope you will fix that.

Hi, it's been a little while since this started..wanted to check in if there were any additional video's etc. of the grinder? Looking forward to getting mine.

For those that signed up via Indiegogo, they've sent an update via that channel.
TL;DR - covid has impacted supply chains, still working close to initial production plan, but rather than October it's likely November is when they start shipping the bulk of the initial orders.

Patience isn't usually my strong suit... November (probably December by the time it gets to me) can't come quick enough.

Looks interesting, I am just late to the party. So just to confirm, nobody here has their hands on this grinder yet, correct? So no reviews, no Niche vs. Key vs. MC4 shootouts, etc.? No James Hoffman videos talking about nits and the value comparison to the EG-1?

There was a video review of a pre-production Key I watched in the last week or so, but I can't seem to find it anymore. Maybe it got pulled.

I don't know, maybe I just dreamed it after thinking about the Key grinder so much.

[I'll repost in the Grinder forums. I had picked this thread up through a search.]

I am waaaay late to this.

Is there anyone that is having buyer/backer remorse?
I would step in and buy their spot from them.

This looks like a great option on many levels, however it would seem like popcorning could be an issue. I would assume that is not the case and if it had been would have gotten addressed before production runs began.

There is a cover over the burrs that will be added to aid with popcorning. It doesn't make an appearance in the promotional videos but Douglas has mentioned it in the IGG discussion threads.

You can see the cover in these little Instagram vids comparing Niche and Key noise:
