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

It is...you did the right thing for your heart at the expense of your pocket. Welcome to the forum.  

Happened to us all.

My attempts to improve the results from my silvia and home roasting attempts have led me to considering pid'ing ms silvia.

Research led me to mecoffee. Mecoffee lead me here. Glad to be here.

Been lurking for a few weeks, that is narrowing down and getting to grips with the machines available before making the jump, lurking on the site for a couple of hours and felt it was the right place to be.

 

Just one question, how long do I wait for the aroma of freshly ground coffee to ooze through my laptop, trust automatic notification comes of responses, cannot see a tick box.

I have lurked for over 4 years but have researched (and tried) lots of recommended beans and equipment. I started with just a cheap espresso machine and have spent a few years using an Aeropress and Porlex hand grinder but have recently been 'talked into' buying a bean to cup machine which I know are looked down upon in these forums. I've had reasonably good results though and will maybe replace it with some proper equipment when it stops working.

Four years I wonder if that's a record, bordering an apprenticeship :), no matter what level you start it's what you are happy with, we've dabbled with several different jug/filter/Grunwerg O'le/Cafetiere/ Various Jars of coffee in an attempt to achieve a decent coffee drink that suits US.

Until now as we get older, occasionally taste seems to evade us, that is until you get a Coffee shop sample and I think that's what has given us the impetus after an exceptional coffee at a restaurant just after Christmas.

So that in mind we have a machine on order.

Enjoy your learning curve as it does appear we have a lot to learn but at least our thoughts are that even the worst coffee we start off with cannot be any less flavourful than the best jarred coffee.

 

Good Luck Jon-Willy

It is, very and from another new intern, welcome.

About a week, realized quickly what a great pool of information there is available here so joined up.

 

I'm not one who can sit and read books and absorb the content, but the way most on here speak with hands on experience is a wealth of information and help, welcome to the club.

130 seconds. The time it took me... to join and populate my profile with the basics.

 

And yes, of course, I expected to be disappointed and to kick myself quite a few times.

But you know what?

 

It never happened, not once.

 

 

I am confused as to why. Is it because I like my self a pinch too much to be the recipient of this painful (when I do something- I do it right) punishment?

 

 

Or is it because I found true value here?

 

 

I used to think it's the former.

 

But there is a worm of doubt burrowing in my brain.

I can feel it whispering "it\s good here. Stay here. And try not to get thrown out",

 

 

Hi, folks, I/m new here, please be kind:act-up:
