Anything is possible! But I'm oh-so-weary from this journey and would like to settle down soon.  The thought enters my mind to leave the story unfinished, to let you all finish it the way you like...picturing me enjoying an espresso from whatever machine makes you most happy.
    Of course, I'd botch something up and come looking to you all for advice, so the secret would come out eventually.
    Anyway, CoffeeRon, I like your analysis of this story...it is really about glory vs. practicality with some art thrown in. Are there any better stories than that?

It is done! My new machine will arrive on Thursday. Hope I made the right decision...whichever you all chose! More to come later.

Now that's just not right! (jk). Whichever machine you chose will make espresso- just need hot water, pressure, and a basket to push it through. And every machine has it's own learning curve.
     Enjoy the journey,

Oh, yeah...and of course thank you to everyone for all of your help. It has been invaluable. I read every piece of advice and took it all seriously. That's what made my decision such a difficult one!

OK, maybe just a hint? Or are you to busy playing with your new toy- (I know I would be).
