Lurked for months, reading up on how to make great coffee, what machines are good/bad, etc.... What type of people are on here, been on some forums that are just plain old hostile full of rude people making sarcastic comments to valid questions..... not seen any of that here.

This place is a mine of useful information, thanks for letting me join.

Oh, and I just bought a Sage Oracle after using an Andrew James unit for the last 3 years, wow what a difference, blown away by the quality of the coffee produced by the Sage Oracle.

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....

Been lurking for 6 months or so. After 10 years of disappointing coffee from my classic, I’m kicking myself. Why did I wait so long?

Just joined the forum, so this is my first post. I'm relatively new to coffee (I only started drinking it in the last year), but my obsession is growing exponentially. I began with a cafetiere, then moved on to an Aeropress, and recently bought a Kafflano Kompresso, which has piqued my interest in espresso. So now I'm on the verge of buying a Gaggia Classic and either a Rancilio Rocky or a Eureka Mignon. Thanks in large part to what I've read on these forums. Just need a few more posts so I can start nabbing the for sale items!

Took a quick glance at the forum and joined straight away.

I initially joined to learn about my recently obtained Super Jolly, but I have yet to make that first post (apart from my intro), because I'm still working my way through the existing SJ posts.

At least you are honest... bet you didn't read the forum rules either...

Oh ok I'll get onto those rules
And I'll expect your essay on why all new members must study the rules immediately before saying a word, latest by Wednesday.

Probably 10 years on and off.

I usually end up spending a few days here when I have a specific problem to solve. Most recently I needed to come and find out the ins and outs of descaling. Since then I have learnt to only use filtered water.

You should do, what grinder have you got. And what part of the country are you in. Welcome
