Hey all,

I'm a passionate addict of good coffee and would be a barista if I didn't all ready have another life long obsession as a profession. Look forward to conversing with other coffee lovers.

Hello all,

Hobby Barista for more than 13 years. Started to professionalize around 2010. Volunteered the German Barista Championships 2011, 2012 and the WBCs in Maasstricht & Vienna. I gained my SCAE Level 2 Certified Barista in 2012.

Own a 1996 La Marzocco Linea 2AV, a Macap M7D conical grinder, a Mahlkönig Guatemala K32S plus, a Mazzer Super Jolly pimped as doserless and several manual grinders, Pour over equipment, Cold Dripper and refractormeter & Mojo stuff. Friends or guests coming along often talk about my setup as "the coffee lab". ;-).

My professional background is computer science. I am a "tech guy" as long as I can think, working with all sorts of systems since the early 80s. My main job is freelance Information Security Consultant and Project Manager mainly in the banking sector where I am juggling with several globally distributed teams. My duty there is to act as a focal point, bringing together people across different entities and hierarchy levels. Main challenge there is gaining some sort of oversight by motivating to "keep in touch".
This is a communication job that requires a broad technical and organizational background.

In the Coffee field I love to contribute these capabilities. So I end up mostly as responsible for all things computers, Websites, Video Streaming, Single Point of Contact and overall project management.
I am working part time as a "Community Barista" - or better I have a counterweight in being a Barista and I LOVE IT ! From time to time i also provide barista training.

Since June 2013 i am a member of board of the German SCAE (Speciality Coffee Association of Europe) Chapter.

Hello all!
Long time lurker, first time poster. I got into specialty coffee about six years ago, and began the home roasting adventure about four years ago (gene cafe, popcorn popper, stove top). I have fully immersed (no pun intended) in pour over brewing with the chemex, hario V60, kalita wave, beehive, and CCD. It was not until recently that I branched out and got a rancilio silvia V3 with an Auber PID. Looking forward geeking out with all of you!

thanks for adding me to the group, its great to be able to share tips and ideas with experts around the world. coffee is very important to drinking coffee is not just something you do every morning its an experience connecting age old traditions with new technologies and methods that continue to expand our fascination with the humble black bean. i mostly use french press, and pour over methods, but have also been getting into Turkish coffee.
thanks

Hey guys, my name is Fidel, I first checked out this website sometime last year looking for reviews on siphon coffee pots. Since then I've gotten way into espresso and now I own more machines then I should. I am looking to learn a bit more about grinding/dosing/tamping so I can bump up my skills.
