I know its a little late but Congratulations on your 10 years!
I only just found out about CoffeeGeek last month when I decided to leave Starbucks and venture out. I loved working in Starbucks but getting out and doing tons of research on my own to start my own cafe consultancy in the future has burned my passion deeper than before! In fact I literally stumbled onto CoffeeGeek, I accidentally hit the wrong link!
I love the articles and the community here. I live in Singapore and the coffee community here is pretty small. Everyone knows everyone. Having access to a huge international community to "extract" coffee knowledge and experience is the best part of the site :)
Thanks for the hard work your team at CoffeeGeek has done and keep up the inspiring work!

Thank you Mark.
This site got me started down the road of discovering what coffee and espresso is supposed to taste like. And while I haven't been able to spend much time here in the past few years, I still drop in from time to time. The knowledge I gained from reading this site has served me well on a daily basis and I am grateful.
I would also add that this site brought to my attention the harsh realities that coffee farming families face on a daily basis. Because I enjoy the coffee that comes from their hard work on a daily basis, I feel the desire to regularly donate to Coffee Kids, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping those families. This would likely not have happened without coffeegeek.com
