I'm a bit confused. We were suggesting nespresso for your wife and you keep your machine.

I can allow a nespresso on my counter

I do not know anything about super auto machine, so I cannot provide any advice on that :). One option is to also get a Robot or other manual lever machine. You can still enjoy very good espresso and the lever experience.

To provide better advice, it might be helpful to understand what is the problem with the Londinium/Niche solution you have ?
Is it for instance related to the whole process (do you need a one button solution, or are some intermediate solutions acceptable), puck preparation/consistency, fear of the lever, lack of physical strength, need for a low maintenance solution; etc ?

The Breville/Sage Oracle might solve some of the issues at stake while preserving the ability to make traditional espresso... a conventional pump machine, possibly with volumetric or timed delivery might solve a smaller set of issues...
