Ignorance was bliss

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Hello from a long-time London-based coffee drinker, living in ignorance. Then I discovered this forum, which means I won't ever be able to tolerate the mediocre coffee I've been making for myself again!

 

About to post in the The Grinder Forum, as my lurking on here has informed me that this is the most important place to start...

 

Looking forward to learning from all the expertise on the forum,

Welcome!

If I can offer you one piece of advice it would be to padlock your wallet and throw away the key. ;)

expect to hear about plenty of grinders people have for sale...hopefully you won't need to go to ebay (best avoided). Also check out machine grinder bundles in the for sale section.

No need to be a member here then. :p

 

Depending on what kind of coffee you plan to make, it doesn't have to be too expensive. What really makes the wallet bleed is if you get into making espresso at home. For brewed coffee there are some limitations to how expensive it can get, depending on how adventurous you are with grinders.

Thanks for the welcome everyone! So, it's definitely the espresso route I am headed down...hoping to build up the kit over time and will definitely be checking out the for sale section.
