Was all set to finally push the button, and now I'm humming and hawing again..  :(

Click Here (www.bezzera.it)

Is it an E-61 group head?  I don't like the sound of:

"is an high quality product built with Professional technology components, combined with a classic design like lever group E61 style."

Emphasis is mine..

Worth the extra dough?

There is no magic in the E61. It has been around since 1961 but other designs work well too. I have a 61 and love it, it came on a machine I liked. Buy whatever YOU like!
I would lay odds that the wording
E61 style
Only means that the maker did not pay royalties to Elektra so they can't say it is a E61. They are nearly all almost identical to the original.

Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

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

Yeah, it'll be a signifigant upgrade from the Gaggia Pure I have now..  I've never dealt with Bezzara, but they have a good reputation..  I just don't know if there's $300 worth of difference between the 2 models..
