Only time will tell how awesome this revamp is, but at first glance, it's very cool. This site has been an invaluable resource for me regarding espresso research and I'll bet this redesign will only improve on the experience. I'm glad to hear that you are finally getting paid for your hard work. I'm sure it's well deserved.

I like it lots… Everything looks so nice. The bigger fonts are a plus for me because I’ve been staring at a monitor at work all day already. This is truly a wonderful site to wind down at the end of the day! Great development effort ya’ll.

The new site looks good, I like the bigger fonts.
Is it possible to convert the pages into a simple format for printing? It's just that I stare at the screen for a whole day at work, and I would prefer printing the articles and then read them on my journey home.

If we end up doing the "print this page" thing, it will most likely be one of the possible "premium services" for members down the road. It's a fairly major undertaking - there's about 100 templates used on this site, and even more components used to build pages.
We would have to build new templates and components for every one of them for any kind of "print this page" ability. I'm thinking about it, but as mentioned, it would most likely be a premium (ie, paid membership" service.

very nice site, well done. the adds dont bother me, and as they are coffe related and non pop up i dont think anyone will (or should) complain, especially, as you say it seems fair that you earn money from this site after all the work you put in, and the high quality content we get for free.
