The Knockbox is the site's "catch all" forum. Over the years, it's become the defacto location for informal cafe reviews/travelogues, regional events, and planning of local get-togethers among site members. Scanning the forums for such topics, it was clear there's enough discussion to have this dedicated forum. :D

Not sure whether your topic belongs in Knockbox or this new forum? Here's examples that belong in this forum:

  • Cafe recommendations and espresso-related travelogues
  • Cafe policy discussions and customer/barista interactions
  • Local events with coffee roasters / cafes (public)
  • Local events with other home baristas (private)
In other words, the key criteria is: Is the discussion about a specific location? If the answer is yes, it goes in this forum. Other miscellaneous coffee-related topics that defy easy categorization go in Knockbox.
