Machine for Group setting

I'm in the market for an espresso machine that will make decent coffee in an acceptable amount of time. I'm not expecting anything miraculous but to get 20 girls their coffee before our meeting is over would be great.

It'll be run for about 15 to 20 cups for meetings two to three times a week so it needs to be durable.

If you have suggestions as to what I should be looking for that would be great. We have some money put aside for this, but not an extravagant about, in the under $500 catagory.

Thanks for any helps or tips you can share!

For that price range and your expectations I'd probably recommend one of the better POD/capsule machines. That would eliminate having to buy a good grinder, the need to spend alot of time, etc. and still get satisfactory results with minimal fuss. Later!
