Is CoffeeGeek Dead?

Want to talk espresso but not sure which forum? If so, this is the right one.

Have not been able to access it lately. My end or theirs?

I notice that too since yesterday, emailed them earlier but didn't hear back,
which if they are down the email server might be affected as well,
therefore to answer your question it's not only you

Although no longer reachable I think CG has been fading slowly, easily hacked and prone to spam postings.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

They are doing some server maintenance

The message I get is that the server can't be found.

I know it's been down since Sunday, three days is a rather long time for server maintenance.

From their twitter:

The CoffeeGeek website is down today and tomorrow as the website servers are upgraded and moved to a new facility (yep, physical servers). Hopefully it will all go smoothly and will be back online

tomorrow.

CG was apparently hacked. If they are doing upgrades, that is likely the reason. I got a scam/extortion email yesterday that included a unique password I created for my CG account.

When did they post that to Twitter, I looked again yesterday and didn't find anything.
