I have no idea, but what kind of coffee do you want to serve? Espresso? French Press? Vacuum/syphon coffee? Drip?

For regular drip style coffee. The hospitals I worked in and the restaurants I worked in all used this brand. They are really nice.

Bunn and there are companies who will lease the machines to you, doing the set up and maintenance.

IMHO Techni Vorm is the very best coffee making company out there. Very pricy- 200 for home machine. Of course, garbage in, garbage out. :)

I am partial to my keurig ...the only bad thing is if you want to use your own grounds the little cup you would put them in leaks water it's like it doesn't want to go into the lil cup but if your using the lil cups designed for the machine it's great coffee... Here in NC keurig has beaten mr.coffee out out the household name for coffee machines...lol
