Subject: Just a general "thank you" to coffee geek
 

I purchased a Duetto 3 as my first espresso machine just a couple of weeks ago and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone here for the wealth of knowledge. A nice home machine has been a dream of mine for quite a while now, so believe it or not I've been lurking on this forum for close to ten years. Thanks to all of the great posters here I was amazed at the quality of my first shots given that my hands on experience level was zero. Now I'm not saying they were good or anything, but there were no disasters even with the bottomless portafilter. They're steadily improving now and as my questions get more specific from living with my machine and actually pulling shots I'm finding the information here even more invaluable than before. So like I said, no questions right now that can't be answered with a search. I just wanted to tell you all thank you and I appreciate you.
