[Homeroast] recommendation requested: commercial-grade machine for faculty lounge

The academic dean at the graduate school where I teach is looking to buy a commercial coffee maker for the faculty lounge. He is thinking of an automatic, self-service machine, along the order of roasted beans go in a container at the top, the user presses a few buttons to make their selection, the magic happens behind the scenes, and the coffee is dispensed into a waiting cup. The budget is pretty vague ("thousands" is all I know at this point). It would get heavy use by lots of coffee non-specialists and very heavy use by a small cadre of coffee geeks, some of whom I converted myself. Can anyone recommend a machine for this type environment? Any info or links would be appreciated.

Many thanks,
Michael Burer
