How to tell which espresso machine someone owns...

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

I've found it's become easy to tell which machine someone owns by the comments they make. I thought I'd offer up my observations:

E61 HX owner: "Look at that chrome! Now, if I could just figure out that flushing thing..."

Breville Double Boiler owner: "Each of the four machines I've owned worked great for a year. Great warranty service!"

La Marzocco owner: "The machine was a perfect match for our kitchen remodel. We've heard it makes great espresso."

Monolith grinder owner (to-be): "This thing is machined to the precision of the space shuttle, at a fraction of the cost. Now, if I could just figure out how to buy one..."

Decent Espresso owner: "Wanna see the graph of my last shot? The profile looks just like a lever machine!"

Lever owner: "Yeah, the machine is 50 years old but it'll look as good as new after the rebuild. Espresso tastes great, though."

I feel attacked but dead accurate.

Actually, that was my homage to lever owners. The latest innovations In espresso machines seem to try to duplicate what a lever machine accomplishes through its innate design. I'm beginning to think that the levers got it right from the start.

That's why I like "The Slayer was invented to mimic the pressure profile of a lever machine."

I was like, yeah, yeah, yeah, until I hit the DE. Good thing I didn't have a sip of anything in my mouth at the time.

I already had the feeling these machines break down fast based on the number of posts regarding Breville issues, apparently I wasn't wrong :lol:

I may have to do a bit of a rebuild on my lever machine in the future. (But indeed the espresso tastes great!l)
