Looking for "end game" espresso machine

Ah, that is in a commercial setting. This is for home - I should have noted that. I see you have a GS3 (AV) - how have you found the reliability?

Profitec pro 700 pressure drift

Since I bought my Profitec pro 700 almost a year ago, the brew pressure keeps creeping up. Every month or so I adjusted the brew pressure back down by turning the screw at the bottom of the machine. I thought that the drift was due to the screw being a bit loose and slowly turning back in the other direction

Cafelat Robot User Experience

I actually think the robot is able to produce great espresso by feel alone. No need for scales or gauges once you have gotten a feeling for the machine. 80-90% of the time I'm usually dosing the beans and amount of water only visually since I can't use scales most of the time. The Robot makes making great espresso easy

Sanremo You - Single Group Espresso Machine

Are you able to do a Scott Rao style "blooming" shot with the YOU like you can on the Decent? Curious if the expansion valve opens if you start the extraction with low pressure PI and then stop it to let the shot bloom and then resume the extraction?
