To help people give you suggestions may I suggest that you let us know some details about what you're looking for with your coffee machine. How many coffees are you making in a session/day, do you need to steam lots of milk or are you predominantly drinking black coffees, price range, thoughts about format of machine (single boiler, heat exchanger, double boiler), do you have any thoughts about the type of machine (pump machine, manual lever, spring lever).

Welcome to the board. Please read and answer the sticky thread at the top of the forum. There is a lot of missing information we need to know to even start to think of which machine to advise.
Off the top of my head, I could advise a Synesso http://www.synesso.com/default.aspx?ID=8. This is a machine I would love to have and it falls into your parameters set so far but I am not sure you have a $8K budget for a single group machine and then another $2.5K for a grinder.
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!
Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!
