I voted no. Simply because they are not built to last.
They do deliver good espresso and are capable of good microfoam though.
But I have had mine 2 and a half years and after very little use (average cup a day), using softened water, a meticulous cleaning routine (water backflush daily, chemical fortnightly, 6 month descale & seal change) the collar was shot, and it is making some strange noises (even stranger than the normal sounds this machine makes).
My question is this - would you drop $700 on this machine knowing that in 2-3 years youll be up for a $250 collar change, and probably in 3-4 years be up for a whole new machine? Or would you just drop 2-2.5k on a good heat exhanger that will last you well over 10 years?
The sunbeam may be cheaper off the bat, but in the long term it is false economy.
