  2. Incorporating Equipment functions in United Baristas Market

    Okay, this is a massive update. Based on the learning from United Baristas Equipment [Beta], we paused development in 2021 with intention of implementing those functions directly into United Baristas Market. Today, we are announcing that work is underway to: • incorporate the equipment directory directly into United Baristas Market • move all company profiles, including engineers, into United Baristas Market • implement associated servicing and retailer searches into United Baristas Market We will notify impacted businesses once we have prepared the necessary steps for the transition. It's a big project for us, so please be patience and bear with us while we make these changes. Updates on the progress below 👇

  3. Payment options on United Baristas Market

    We are updating both the communication and function of payment options on United Baristas Market. The purpose is to make buying items easier, to further enhance community safety and make the listing process more straightforward. While we make these changes, some payment options will be removed and others will be temporarily unavailable. Unfortunately in some cases some users will need to update their payment options as we are not able to transfer all setting from the old to the new configuration. We will update all users when we have finished this work.

  7. La Marzocco Model Options on United Baristas Market

    Obviously the La Marzocco nomenclature is tricky: two AV machines of different models have more in common than a Linea Classic EE and a Linea Classic MP. To try and make things simpler on United Baristas Market, we've added a model option to La Marzocco espresso machine listings. So you now specifically add the option, for example, a Strada AV is: • La Marzocco • Strada • AV and a Linea PB AV is: • La Marzocco • Linea PB • AV At this point in time it doesn't make too much difference, but once a round of new listings have been added, we'll be able to add new functions to make finding the correct LM machine that much easier. So, for example, you'll be able to see all AV machines or refine EE options within Linea Classic. If this proves useful, we'll add the functionality to other equipment such as Victoria Arduino's Mythos grinders.

  13. United Baristas Market categories

    We're thinking again about how to best categorise listings on United Baristas. Too few categories and it's hard to find the right items; too many categories and navigation become a hassle.

  15. Privacy Enhancement – Removing Google Analytics – Community Consultation [Project Fusion]

    We are considering enhancing user privacy by removing Google Analytics from United Baristas. We are currently considering alternatives and options and would welcome your feedback on whether our use of Google Analytics present any privacy concerns for you – please let us know 👇 We use Google Analytics to do things like count visitors and understand what segments of user use United Baristas and how they use it. By using Google Analytics we are able to identify areas for improvement to United Baristas and better market your listings because we understand what types of people are likely to apply for your job or buy you item, for example. However, Google Analytics tracks people both on our sites – and then Google understands were else you've been on the web because Google is almost everywhere. Some people care, some people don't. But we are open to ways we can get the information we need without someone like Google tracking you across the internet. For example, in 2021 we ended Facebook's (now Meta, which also includes Instagram etc) tracking you across United Baristas. If you've got thoughts on this or other aspects, please let know and help shape the future of United Baristas
