But either way, there isn't a FAQ there! I used to do a post to alt.coffee giving sites of various places that i thought were noteworthy for newbies - and that included coffeegeek, scotts more recent updated FAQ masterpiece (which is the nearest we have to an alt.coffee faq in that it was developed noncommercially and subject to much peer scrutiny from alt.c), alan's site exploding coffee machines and sweetmarias becuase its the ultimate on homeroasting.
but i decided that i am no longer mainstream alt.c thinking (newbies are now recommended to start with an HX machine if there are 4 people in the house (takes too long to steam milk otherwise) and get a mazzer mini (becuase otherwise you will regret it) so i stopped.
and have taken my tea strainer and jug into the kitchen and play by myself.
The advice in the non FAQ is still more than suitable digest for newbies here. Forget about the ever rising minimum standards spouted by some. I often give a balancing post if some twit says you need a commercial 2 group hx machine to make a couple of lattes at home...
If you don't wish to post it anymore someone else will, just say. If nothing else it's a good way to bring people down to earth.
Anyway, it's easy for you to say with your Giotto, Rocky, vac pots, Alp etc etc ;)
