I have been reading info on the forum for about 2 weeks. Just joined today. Happy to be a member. I am awaiting delivery on my first prosumer machine : VBM Domobar Super 2B. Sent from my SM-N950F usi

Signed up straight away as needed specific advice... Have been lurking ever since

Lurked for a couple of days before joining. Then lurked for a couple of years before posting....

I had lurked on and off for several years. It’s a great resource for advice and information.

I knew of other forums like coffeesnobs, home-barista, etc, but I have not found coffeeforums until yesterday, and I almost instantly signed up when found!

About six weeks intermittent lurking. Discovery triggered by machine failure and need to repair and/or choose/buy.

Coming back often enough for UK info that it absolutely made sense to join !

I stumbled across the forum in the summer. I haven't really lurked just dropped in occasionally, but now the dark dank days of late autumn and winter are here it's nice to keep the curtains closed and escape.

Hence I signed up yesterday.

I've popped in and out of the forums (reading only) probably for over 6 months.


I waited to sign up because I hadn't had the need to post something.


I read a lot of interesting threads though.

I probably visited some time ago but recently decided I wanted to buy a machine and this place has been invaluable since.


I signed up so I could ask questions and get even more help, which I have already.
