Anyway, the only good thing about the Tassimo is the Suchard's Chocolate. I have taken to occasionally raiding the meeting room cupboard for the disks and then peeling the plastic with the handle tip of a tea-spoon, then putting it into a mug, filling with boiling water, then stirring round to get the chocolate liquid to dissolve (or suspend, more accurately?).
This has been described by an esteemed colleague as 'a bit pikey', and another stepped back a couple of metres very quickly presumably for fear that it might cause the Hellmouth to open again.
[As an added complication, the cupboard has mocha packs consisting of one packed of this and one of espresso, which is powder not liquid, the 'normal' hot chocolate is not nearly as nice]
So, the obvious question is why don't they sell liquid hot chocolate concentrate in jars or little plastic sachets...
