I didn’t want to post. I think I should clarify and draw this to a close amicably. 😊
The quote was captured from your post, it was changed later (not by me) and I did not edit your post!
I am sure we all appreciate that change in your post and my reply actually crossed path making them out of context or irrelevant or both! TBH, this is the fact, and there was no bad intent at all! 😊
We know we recommend a set of machines - lever or E61 for a given price range, unless one doesn’t have an upper budget. 😁
No body pushes a machine on the forum. There is no commercial interest for any of us. All we care is a good cuppa than a sub-standard coffee (for us at least) that we get from high-street coffee chains.
Whether the OP purchases XYZ is purely his/her decision. They are the ones who are paying and responsible for the upkeep. I agree, the potential buyers must do their due diligence and take an informed decision.
That’s all I have got to say on this!
@BrewLiam Sorry! We deviated from your post. I promise no more reply from me. 😊
Have a good long week end every one!
