What's the name of the coffee machine that takes the small coffee containers?

I've seen this sort of coffee maker at several businesses. It allows you to put in the particular flavor of coffee that you would like to have made. These flavors of coffee are contained in a small package that the coffee machine pokes a hole through and then passes hot water through the container to make the coffee.

Please provide me with the name of this sort of coffee maker.

    There are lots to choose from depends on the shape of the capsule.
    Have a look at Nespresso or Tassimo for examples.
    Most restrict you to coffee provided by a single manufacturer.
    A description of the capsules will help us get the one you mean and there may be some regional variations on the name as the Trademarks vary across the world.

    We have a Nespresso machine at work that takes small space-ship shaped capsules. I've seen them on the internet with small milk carton shaped containers, but I expect they are the same inside.
    The machine is on permanent loan to us at no charge as long as we buy a certain amount of coffee from them. We are almost drinking it at the level where they would give us another machine free as well, but don't want to commit to the extra  just in case we can't keep up.
    It makes a nice coffee.
