I tried a cheap Hamilton-Beech espresso maker (looked good — 15 bar pump) and it claimed to take pods.  I don’t know whose pods it would take, I couldn’t find any that would fit it.  I am happy with my DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Machine from Whole Latte Love — ESE pods fit it perfectly and I don’t mind having it at work.  I get my pods from, my favorites are Cafe Borbon but I recommend getting one of their samplers and finding what you like.
