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.

Hi there.  I discovered this forum probably a year ago, when I got interested in coffee to the point that took me a little bit beyond the safe realm of common sense, if you know what I mean. 

When you’re a beginner, many things may look intimidating, so I did quite a bit of reading, my motivation being primarily the desire to learn the ropes, following the path of acquired equipment – first La Pavoni EP,  then the VBM Domobar Junior 2B, the Gene Cafer roaster, and finally the Profitec Pro 700.   

Lots of useful stuff found here, I must say.  Really appreciated the knowledge and hope to contribute back if/when I can.

Think I’ve been lurking for around 2 weeks. I came across the forum from time to time previously just via Google, but as I’ve been digging into some UK specific second hand bits and pieces I’ve been here most days recently so thought it best I signed up. Look forward to asking some daft questions soon...

Hello all, basically started to like coffee, dont like paying £4.00 and generally get obsessed with stuff.


Was looking to spend £200 ish for a coffee machine, but then watched reviews and they just all get trashed sooooo they said the scilia and another brand G*** has a big following and forums which lead me here... so hello all.


34, from Leeds. I work for the government (dont judge me) also a hairdresser of 15 years, family man 2 kids, 2 guinea pigs and a 400litre fish tank. 


Love a good forum to push my obessession and yours was the first I found that seems active 👍

About two weeks I think. I've been wondering if there was a genuine alternative to the Silvia at a similar price point and having failed to really uncover a solution by myself I've finally decided to ask.

My Silvia broke the other day - gutted - but have decided to upgrade instead of spend the money on fixing as makes no sense. My maraX arrives tomorrow!
