Sunbelt Imports indicates in its web site that it is a Rancilio distributor, located in Houston. If I go to their showroom and take up their time to look at a Rancilio, I may want to buy it from them, assuming I decide to get one.

Has anybody dealt with them or heard of them?

I guess this is a late reply....

Sunbelt caters mostly to the commercial coffee business.  They don't have Silvia there (but you might look at an S-27).  They also do professional service on machines ($50 bench fee applies towards repairs).  

They are pretty knowledgeable.  
They carry good beans and syrups and the like as well.  

I think they are well-established and I met the owner when I was there.  He seems very interested in running a high-quality operation and he's proud of his place.  I would surely buy from them if they had something I wanted...
