Hello everyone!
I'm Albert I'm a coffee fan, I love coffee so much I joined a company that sells it but I'm not here to do a sales pitch just figured I'd join a forum with other likeminded people and see what I can learn/teach people 'round here.
A little about me, I am only 24, figured I let my entrepreneurial mind run free and not submit to the "standard way" of life, I was one in the military Army combat vet, also Airborne qualified, after that went to culinary school so I can better prepare meals as a hobby of mine, I do post blogs on certain meals I cook and I am hoping to one day stop being so lazy and make video tutorials to teach people the few skills that I've acquired and also to keep my skills sharp.
I believe that if someone can do something, why can't I? Specially now with youtube and search engine sites you can learn just about anything for free.
You're welcome to look at my blogs if you're interested in checking out dishes, so far I only have one since I just put the website together myself lol but fear not I hope to have plenty of blog posts by the end of the year! Specially some recipes that I can share for holidays and such.

Enough about my page, I'm here for the coffee! lol I prefer latte over anything, though when I was in Italy I had an amazing hot white chocolate/coffee blend, and the spoon was a dark chocolate spoon so it melts as you stir! Best one I've had thus far!

Thank you for having me here :)

Well Albert, I see you have a website promoting a product called Organo Gold.  I hope you're not here just so you can use the CoffeeGeek forum to promote this scam.  The people who have been around on this site for a long time and established themselves as truly interested and knowledgeable in coffee and equipment, certainly don't need some dubious product such as this Organo Gold promoted or discussed further on the CoffeeGeek forum.

We are not likeminded to discuss endorsements of some phony coffee product or a marketing scheme relating to the same. If you are truly interested in what coffee is, to discuss it where your interest may be, then welcome to the CoffeeGeek forum.  If your relationship to the Organo Gold organization is simply another pyramid membership, then I hope you take a good look at the MLM you're investing in before you further raid your nest egg to finance a business mistake.

Thank you for the warm welcome...

It's ok, I understand that you've probably had a few handful of people joining this website trying to promote a product,  while it is under your opinion that it's a "scam" I didn't join Coffee Geek as a stepping stone to my website, I simply just filled out a little back story on who I am and what I do for a living and it's been working quite well. I am here because I am an entrepreneur and there is more than one way to skin a cat and learning about different coffee machines and what people think about them is a key and vital point on developing new ideas and such.

So please, I am not looking to spam this site with my information, everyone's shot at success is based on their determination. I am simply here to talk and listen to people and learn more about what people enjoy and what products they find repulsive as well as learn more about coffee and equipments for my own personal pleasure. As you mentioned people have been around this site for quite some time, I am here to establish a similar time line hopefully make some friends along the way.
