My Tassimo, three years old packed up recently and I haven't replaced it yet. Although their pods are readily available everywhere. My son has a built in bean to cup system, which is great, but takes up oven housing space. Only me drinks coffee in our house normally, so I don't want to spend big money on a new machine.
thank you ill take a look

A bit more I got mad when tassimo changed the Costa latte recipe, marched in to John Lewis and traded it in for a delonghi pre Madonna exclusive, they had a 50 for you old machine offer and it still cost more than 14 day passes to Disney for the family!

Best thing we have have ever brought though.

I've got one of the Keurigs. They are starting to make their way over here now after being mostly an American brand. I still pick up the pods when I'm in the states as they have more choice and better priced. You can get reusable pods for them and then use any brand of ground coffee you like but the use once pods are probably still better. We picked up lovely Caramel Starbucks pods in Target the last time we were in the states. Will definitely be picking more of those up.

We went through 3 tassimo machines and at the end of last year I got fed up with the cost of pods and decided to go for the Nespresso. Last month we went back to Tassimo. Personally I got bored with having to do the milk everytime as the pods were all basically expresso size. It was clearly cheaper as no-one else would ever use the machine. Rest of the family just didn't like it.

The pods for tassimo are definately more expensive. The new machine did give 2 x 10 vouchers again so thats been handy. Coffee use is up again in the house which is both a good sign and bad thing at the same time.

I bought the basic Nespresso in an AO sale 114 plus 50 worth of free pods... however I've been disappointed to find that it doesn't produce very hot coffee (we drink lattes),
