Thanks Glen, an insightful post. I'm glad to be on here currently after having worked in the coffee industry for a while - definitely time I joined the forum life! I started as a barista but happy to be roasting at a new micro-roastery in South London currently. If anyone wants a special code to receive a discount on what we're producing reply back to this post or send me a message, it would be great to hear your thoughts on what we are doing. Our website is www.brewcoffeeplus.com if people are interested. Thanks, m

A very useful article on espresso machines. After reading everything I decided within 10 minutes what type of machine I would like to have. Many thanks for all the effort.

Thanks for the very informative post. I’ve just joined the forum yesterday and already my knowledge in coffee has dramatically increased. I must confess, i’ve owned a classic since 2013 and clearly been doing things wrong. Judging by a lot of Gaggia related posts a full service and descale’s immediately required an OPV adjustment, a steam wand upgrade and £££ grinder to add too. 

Better get moving 😃

Hi,

I'm new to this forum. For some reason I'm not able to reply to other posts like I am able to this one.

For eg.,  I want to reply to this post for asking more details but it does not give me an option to do so? What am I doing wrong?

Help is much appreciated.


Cheers

Dev

So  do I need to create a post/ topic or just comments? And how many?

I'm going to guess that you need to up your post count to five, only two more and then try again

It doesn't matter how you get there it's only the end result that matters

Just join in on a thread that interests you. I am not sure - 5 or 10 posts. I may be incorrect though.

You absolute LEGEND! Was almost about to get fed up and leave the forum.

There really should be some guidance on this for new members.

People usually ask if they're stuck. Saves searching ;)
