We typically make quality espresso for ourselves, but it's slow to produce when entertaining multiple guests.  What are my best options for producing a large amount of great tasting coffee for multiple guests?  I was thinking that I want something cleaner than a French Press, which we have.

Espresso gear can be fast depending on what you have but for even faster brewing of great coffee, it is hard to beat quality drip. A brewer that brews straight into a airport is the easiest. Quality brewers are made by Bunn, Curtis, and other commercial makers. Pour over is easy to use and requires only an outlet to plug into. Like espresso, plumb in is nice but if you only use it on occasion and want to store when not in use, pour over is the path.

As only a place to start looking, look up the Bunn VPR-APS I have two of them and they are very able to brew properly. They have adjustable brew thermostats if needed and out of the box, nearly all work well with no adjustments needed.

How many cups are you looking at for quests?  I too spend a great deal of time behind the coffee bar during parties and would also like to enjoy being on the other side of the bar.  I just got a Technivorm and have been extremely pleased with the drip it produces.  However, the problem is that it only makes 10 european sized cups.  Its fast though so you can brew every 6 minutes.
