Londinium-R and Eureka Mignon
I placed my L-R in the kitchen of my girl friend so we can enjoy easy and superb espresso in her home as well. Before she was happy with a La Pavoni of mine but the results always vary on the fun little oldie and the ease of pulling a superb shot on the L-R feels like cheating, so easy. The little Eureka Mignon (which is very affordable and quite silent for its size) pairs fine with the big machine. And since they are both glossy-reflective they are almost transparent in the kitchen, not an intimidating mass of machinery. At home I use the L1 more intensely again.
