Hi there everyone,

How are you doing?

I need to know 2 things:

  1. The names of high end espresso makers
  2. The retail stores or sites that sell to the US that carry these high end brands. The stores don't have to be in the US so long as they sell to the US.

Thank you


Michelle

doing well thanks!

what exactly do you mean by high end?  commerical? or just good products?

What is it you're looking for?  Are you interested in buying a machine?

Hi,

No not commercial, just a higher end type model.

Not looking to buy just yet, need to contact all sites & stores who sell these types of machines.

Thank you

I like E61-type machines. They're "High End" in most ways I can picture, and here's today's version of the original bloodline.  It seems to be available from Chris Coffee, a long-time member of these forums.
E61 at Chris Coffee

Browse his whole site, browse his competitors'. Your idea of "High End" may include neccessities I merely find frivolous. Thank god for the internet. If you have a definition of what you want to with it, we could more accurately narrow your search.

This thread smells of troll

The definition of a troll is someone who comes onto a public forum & starts criticizing/flaming people or lies about about people in public to start a fight.

I have done no such thing & find it very offensive that you would accuse me of such a thing.

I asked a simple question about espresso machines. That's what this site is for.

Very rude.

Hi,

Yes I found Chris' site already.

How does one find his competitors?

Thank you

Michelle,
I believe you are being straight forward and aggressive with your question.... this might be where emradguy is coming from.
It seems to me that you are wanting everyone else to do your leg work for you?
If you search online and branch off into channels from your search results, I believe you will answer your own questions and gain a better feel for what you are looking for.
This website is about folks that put a lot of heart and soul into their coffee.  Even though I'm not an expert, you will find people here will answer your questions honestly and thoroughly....  Questions about details to gain knowledge so that person will have a better understanding.
There isn't a bias opinion about manufactures or where to purchase.  There are several if you just search online.
If you have specific questions about certain machines, this is the place for you to find answers, but if you're wanting us to do your leg work, no respect to the other members, or don't have coffee heart and soul, then you might want to join another forum.
just sayin'

You kind of asked I want a high end car, name the maker and where I can buy one. This is a VERY open ended question, you have not defined what you want to do with it, your use pattern, available hook ups, budget, you are very VERY short on details yet you want specifics.
On the top of my list is http://www.synesso.com/default.aspx?ID=8 but then that is just me.
Don't forget, when you get to this class machine, you need an excellent grinder, think starting at   $ 1.5K for example.

To ask such a question in this way, is in your words, very rude.

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!

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.
