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.
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.
