Here is a list of supporters of this website. You can go to each one and read the reviews of the machines. The higher the price.. the higher end it is.

I apologize if anyone thought I was trying to get everyone to do work for me. I just wanted a few name of high end models & I certainly didn't feel I was being rude.

I understand that maybe my question was too open ended.

I won't bother anyone anymore.

All the best

Uh, so . . . instead of refining your question and working with the very knowledgeable group of individuals here, you will take your proverbial marbles and go home?  

I'm sorry, Michelle, that you're leaving -- presuming that you are true to your word, and not trying to get others to do your work for you.  But if that's the case, what's wrong with being more specific and asking relevant (and appropriate) questions?

Well, it's up to you -- but I wish you all the best . . .

This will be my last post here as I don't appreciate the flaming.

No one did any work for me. I asked for a couple of names of high end brands & then where to find stores to buy such places.

I got what I needed & will do the rest myself.

I don't lie & I DON'T play games. I needed to do some research & I did. That's what forums are for IMO.

Now I'm not here to fight.

Thank you


bye

You know, I haven't seen anyone flame you -- clearly you have a) a different definition of "trolling" and "flaming" than most people.  I mean, truly, this is the first time I've ever seen anyone respond to someone saying, "I'm sorry you're leaving" by accusing them of "flaming."  Interesting.

Uh, no.  Not even close, Michelle.  You asked NOT for "a couple of names of high end brands," as in "two" ("couple" = "two"), but rather The names of high end espresso makers, PERIOD -- clearly, in standard English, implying "all."  This is precisely what was "too broad" (and confusing) about your original request.

Be that as it may . . . ciao.

yeah, seriously flaming? Please! I can show you flaming...of course, I'd surely earn my first strike from the mods, so I will, instead, show restraint.  You've got a lot of nerve.  After offering you an apology, which really wasn't deserved since you have since clearly shown us all that you indeed were merely trying to do some background work for your business, you made no comment of my kind apology, yet continued to criticize this community for not giving you what you asked for...despite you being told how things function here and what this community is all about.  You offered no sincere apology or reformulation of your query.  Just because other forums you've visited operate in a different way than we do, you think we should just rollover and do your leg work for you...sorry, that's not how it works here.  Even senior members with long post histories have been "admonished" on this board for not using the search tool.  Good riddance!

i think its kinda sad that this thread got a lot more suggestions and comments than my first thread asking legit advice on machines.  This was obviously not a sincere thread and she had another motive, and was obvious reading the initial post
