Lurking for a while. Probably won’t buy a new machine until around Christmas but researching every detail is half the fun right?

Hi all, been lurking for a while but only now seriously considering buying a coffee machine for more then £100. Figured it would be best to do as much research as possible and ask for advice to try and make best choice! 

Cheers Dan

A lurker for years.  Eventually went to sign up and realised I already had.  In 2016!

Discovered this forum around 6 months ago, and started visiting more and more frequently recently, as I started getting more and more interestedi in home espresso. When this forum became one of the first suggested pages in the browser launch screen, I took it as a sign to join :)

Nope. I bought it from United barista marketplace. It's a used machine just 1 year old and in great condition. The seller provided pictures of every angle possible both internal and external.

I’ve been lurking for a while as I’m getting bored of the weak/inconsistent steam from my dedica and I’m considering buying something nicer. I switched to non pressurised filter baskets ages ago after reading something on here which made a big difference to the espresso quality and more recently modded it with a Silvia wand. 

Not sure if I’ll make it up to five posts to use the classifieds though!

Probably for about a week. It was the need to get advice about fitting a PID to my Gaggia Classic that meant I took the plunge

Welcome to the forum, plenty of reading / information on here for you.

What equipment do you have or are you just at the beginning of your coffee journey ?

 

Sorry just noted your other post:whistle:

Joined after reading a couple of the excellent advice pieces. Looking to take my home espresso-making skills to a half decent level - need to replace my ancient early 2000s Dualit and equally ancient Cunill Tranquilo for starters!

I found credible information on here while searching on Google this past few weeks and given that it is a UK site too, decided to join. I am fixing up a Rancilio Silvia (possibly original/V1) for a friend.

Didn't need to be there.
