I'm surprised by the results of the poll - almost half joined within a week! Must be because you're all a friendly lot here :o

 

I joined quick but only because I've been on another coffee forum which I lurked on for a while

I like to read and digest before speaking thats why i took longer. Easy to ask questions without researching but annoying for other members who see the same questions asked all the time.

I was searching for reviews on the Vario Home grinder when I happened onto your site and joined there and then. That was less than an hour ago.

Around 3 months for me. Looking to purchase my first grinder and espresso machine so I've scoured the forum changing my mind along the way!

As a newbie I found loads of really useful information, but no particular reason to sign up... until I discovered that you need to have posted a minimum number of times to access the sales forum. That's what made me sign up

That probably is a record, although with lurkers there's no knowing until they break cover!

Signed up after about a week. Found some useful comparisons of various espresso machines and wanted more advice and info before jumping in with a purchase.

 

There is lots to learn and people seemed helpful and knew what they were talking about.

I first started reading the forum on and off about 2 years ago, but I've only just got round to creating an account!

I knew this place existed from a Google search a year or so ago, but didn't start reading until today, so I joined.
