renting a great espresso machine or clover?

I was thinking of renting a great espresso machine--or actually, I'd LOVE to find a Clover coffee machine--for a company party. Anyone know where I can get such a beast?

    I can't imagine you can rent a Clover, which requires a special commercial power outlet, if I remember correctly. Regardless, keep in mind that it takes some training to operate a Clover or an espresso machine. You should probably plan to hire a good barista, as well.

      Yeah, I would check with one of the best coffee places around town and find out if their services are available for private functions. Offhand: Caffe Luxxe in Santa Monica; West Burton Coffee & Tea in Westwood; Intelligentsia or L.A. Mill in Silverlake.
