QVC had a coffee pod machine on this morning. It uses any pods or beans. Have a look at their website.
It looked good to me, but I don't need one.

Another vote here for a little Lavazza Jolie a Modo Mio. Makes a good espresso. The organic pods are particularly good.

I recently bought the smallest Lavazzao Jolie model from amazon.They were doing a deal where it cost just over £50 and included 36 capsules.
It's very simple to use and just makes good black coffee with a sort of crema topping. You can get capsules in a wide variety of intensity. They do a range of ecofriendly ones too.
Warning - you need small coffee mugs/cups as the compartment you put them is not very big.
I wouldn't recommend if you are likely to be making more than 1 0r 2 cups at a time.

I have a Lavazza A modo mio, love it.
The pods are widely available and the milk frother/warmer is excellent

My son has this and loves it too.

I have a very basic Nespresso machine. No degree in technology required but it doesn't do fancy coffee.

I have a Tassimo and absolutely love it. In fact I’m on my second one now. Get really good deals on pods from Costco. Also had good deals on Amazon.

I've got the Tassimo. Works well and dies what I need. I do lattes for visitors, which are very popular. You can recycle the pods, I sometimes buy a big order direct and they send bags.

Make sure you get the model with the built-in George Clooney.

I am looking to buy a machine for coffee pods which does not need a technology degree to operate. Any thoughts on Tassimo v Nespresso? Or anything else?
