Hi All,


We are going to purchase a drinks machine for the library and want something that can produce both tea and coffee. And yes, I’m aware that a kettle can do this perfectly adequately, but we want something quicker and with options for fancy espresso-based concoctions.


We’ve almost decided upon a Tassimo machine, but I’ve read a few poor reviews for the quality of the drinks. Does anybody have one of these in their library, or perhaps an alternative machine? What do your library visitors think?


Any contributions welcome.
