Hi guys, Happy New Year; this is the post as promised a couple of days ago... firstly just a reminder of, and thanks to your volunteer team - Brett H - our longest serving mod; Pat, who was a mod shortly after I started (what was then the Crema) forum and of course Kelsey, joint admin. who very kindly covers the hosting of the site. Also thanks to Paul (K-Bean), our newest mod.

Just wanted to remind you of the ethos of the forum - it is absolutely volunteer-run with no profit incentive; therefore we rely on members' input and are always ready to consider any positive suggestions. So if you can think of anything you think needs improving or any great ideas, please feel free to post on this thread.

cheers
A

Happy New Year.... almost.... one and all!!

This is a good question Admin.  I think Jeff (MyCuppa) gave a pretty prophetic projection of the future of coffee forums. Nonetheless, we who love them love pictures, stories and bargains. So, as KK is the king of photo upload protocols and is always kind enough to lend a helping hand I reckon we get snapping and make more pictures than words. Who knows, Donald may even find us with all of his spare time.

I'll definitely have a think guys, but at a loss of ideas hehe!

Will try to post more pics etc, and I guess it comes down to why everyone individually uses the forum. I like it for the connection and sense of community, as I have literally no one around I can discuss and share my passion for coffee with, which is why I joined the forums. I love discussing all things coffee, especially the technical side of different techniques, espresso extraction tips, latte art, roasting, manual brewing, and just generally how to work towards improving and getting the best drink possible. And it's very much a deeper process for me in aiming towards improving, perfecting the process and trying to reach that god shot hehe.

Funnily I've never been into the different espresso machines, gizmos and pics of them (certainly still appreciate them), but love the learning aspect, so it's great being able to discuss these sorts of things for me.

Will have a ponder!

Speaking as an enthusiastic semi-beginner, I'm always keen to learn virtually anything about my coffee obsession.
And I have picked up a huge amount of knowledge which would've taken many years of solo trial and error to achieve otherwise.
Likely saved myself from half a lifetime of average coffee and a few thou too.
Being an older bugger a contrary position does not inflame me, rather can offer a chance for a bit of a rethink. Or a laugh, if nothing else.
I don't claim a huge amount of experience but happy to offer help if I feel its worth listening to, love the forums for what people are sharing.
Even hopelessly slanted and biased opinions, because screw it, generally we really care about sharing our passion.

Mate, I couldn’t agree more. There are many things we take for granted in our hobby; and, then stand bewildered at someone with a different approach or idea.... but at the end of the day it’s the pursuit of what’s in the cup that unites us!

Hi, really appreciate the forum site, will be trying my best to contribute something useful.
Agree that Jeff of MyCuppa is very generous with his knowledge - my wife and I like his beans too, lol!!
I've said it before, but honestly feel a "like" button would be nice, to give a quick thumbs-up of approval on posts. No negative button though thanks, that sort of response should require an explanation.
I'd like to say a "thank you" to KK for his brilliant intro to milk steaming, this was just an unpredictable mess before I read that particular rather elderly post  :thumb:
