The Niche Zero can grind coffee between a range of 0 – 1400 microns.

The setting for this grinder is shown in two parts: Rotation and steps. For example, 1.22 would be read as 1 rotation, 22nd step. Although the numbers on the Niche Zero end at 50, you can still use the blank area between 50 and 0 at the back end of the grinder. If you find eyeing the settings 60, 70, 80 difficult, try marking those numbers with a marker or sticker.
