>From the underscore mailing list where Matt Hamilton asked a very
similar question but was looking at "proper espresso" type machines :

"Well in the end I have just ordered a Jura C5, so will see in the
next few days.  My sister has the bigger brother to that, the Z5 at
her coffee shop and it seems to be pretty good.  I gave the people at a call and chatted to them, and their advice
was the Jura was suited better to an office than the Gaggia ones as
it is more robust and easier to clean.

There is another model, the F9 which has internet connectivity!  Had
we got that, we could have pre-selected our coffee before even
leaving our desks!"
