I just found this Tesco-branded pod-based brewer listed on the Tesco website (one the UK's largest, if not the largest, supermarket): http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.212-5032.aspx
It seems to be brand new to market and is called a "K-Free Pod Drinks machine". They are selling it at £49.97 (roughly $80 USD). The pods themselves are being sold for something like £1.98 (roughly $3.20 USD) for 8 pods.
Given the "K" in the "K-free", I'm assuming it might be based on the Keurig system. Can anybody identify the machine from the picture on the website? If it is a Keurig-based thing, I wonder if it will take the same pods or if it has been modified to only accept Tesco-branded ones?
I don't see much in the way of Keurig brewers on my travels so I don't know if they sell in the "real thing" in the UK or not.
If anyone can help fill in the blanks or provide further into, I'd appreciate it.
[I've posted this in the "other machines" category as I'm not sure where it really belongs]
