Have you heard of the Tassimo Brewbot? I got my "better half" one for xmas and you can't pry her off the bloody thing :)
I've heard her talking to her friends about it and I think I she loves it more than me. lol. I gotta admit, I wasn't sure which one to get her, but she found a $50 saving off the Tassimo T20 so I went for that one.
Its a single serve machine, that can brew 7 different types of beverages including hot chocolates and teas.
I'm pretty sure the save $50 deal is still valid and you can read more about it and the Tassimo on my hub: http://hubpages.com/living/TassimoBrewbot
all the best.
