Hi all,

I came here because I wanted some advice about a coffee grinder and thought the forum looked like a fun place to hang out and meet some nice people.  :)

hi and welcome ! did you have a budget in mind for the grinder and what coffee machine or preparation device will you be using it with?

Hi everyone, it has been some 7 years since I first read something about home barista communities in my home country (Netherlands) that got me intrigued. Took another year or 2 to take the plunge and purchase a setup fof home espresso making. Next I found myself registering on a number of forums, of which Coffeeforums.uk is the latest. I like to think I go about my routine with my mid-tier equipment in a casual way as much as possible, but love reading what others have to say about chasing the best cup they can, how meticulous their approach is or isn’t and what equipment they like to use doing so. One is never done learning from others. Cheers!

Bert

Hi Bert and welcome!!  Mid-tier is a slippery slope.... you start sensible then one day wake up surrounded by enough machinery to run a busy cafe. Enjoy the hobby mate!!

Hi to All,
Steve here from a very hot Adelaide.... I have joined this great forum in search of any advise, feedback etc as we have just launched a capsule machine into the Australian market. As sole distributors we need to understand where the coffee market is heading, how to get the best reach to the consumer and any tips around articles and content. We have cafe owners in our business, a distribution base specializing in predominately Italian food and a willingness to learn. Would be great to hear from anyone and look forward to being an active member.
Cheers

I'm not that new here really but mostly lurking... this is one of my first posts, been too darn busy soaking up info til now, lol!
Finally starting to feel like I'm getting somewhere so can spare the energy to join in.
Really appreciate the two Oz forums especially, as I feel that H-B although great is dealing with what amounts to an alternate reality where everybody seems to be punting La Marzoccos, KVW's or Slayers with a Mahlkonig k43/k30 as the median and an Atom the lower bar for grinders.....ok maybe a bit of hyperbole but not quite personally relevant unless I win Gold Lotto.
I'd like to say thanks for all the cool data and hope I can contribute something going forward

Welcome to our forum
We don’t judge on what machine you have
It’s all about the end result in the cup that matters

Hi All - new here thought I'd better introduce myself.

From Brisbane but currently living in Vienna the last four years (you would be surprised how terrible the coffee skills in cafes are here, grind, tamp pressure, pour time, it's a complete mystery. Forget coffee art, too).

Long time amateur barista, have had a low level DeLonghi grinder and machine for several years, finally thought I better up my game and buy a decent set of kit. (Still deciding on machine, but have bought a Ceado E6P grinder). As a mechanical engineer, it got my tick of approval for the insides.

Proud to say I have taught myself over the years how to do a little bit of coffee art.

My favorite bean is Campos, the superior blend mix. I know some hate this bean, but I really enjoy the syrupy smooth after taste of this bean in the mouth. Problem is they won't post to Vienna, so I have to rely on visiting friends and bringing some back myself.

Drink of choice is a flat white or a cap (no chocolate, no sugar).   

Cheers

Welcome Bain
Nice to have another new member with some passion

You may need to look at home roasting to satisfy your taste buds in Europe

Thanks guys,

Roasting sounds like a lot of work... If anyone knows other beans similar to Campos Superior Blend, please let me know so I can see if they post to Vienna :)

roastings not hard work once you get in the routine of it - you could always find out whats in the Campos blend and then reverse engineer it!

Hi Bain,
Roasting isn’t too difficult really. It’s a huge amount of fun when you get into it and it opens up a whole new aspect to the home barista hobby.
Enjoy it :)
Paul

Morning All thanks for keeping the info alive.

I'm in Brunswick Victoria, lots of good coffee around. lots of good roasting around.

Self employed in the metal world world doing custom everything.

I've come across some espresso machines, new and old, working and not.

Toying with the idea of refurbishing the old for personal use in the workshop.

Photos for help identifying brands and models and histories and worth, etc. in the projects and rebuilds thread

new machine to move on in the classifieds once post count is up.

Cheers

John
