From when the first vending machine appeared in the 1880’s, they have come an extremely long way. Hot drinks machines now dispense coffee shop quality, and fresh food and snack machines deliver big brands in a pinch of the time. The evolution of vending has also extended to strange and quirky options though, many of which you can actually envisage a purpose for. Some are a bit pointless, yes, but they add to the fun! Take a look below for some of the best ones we have found…
Coinadrink Ltd are an elite vending company that celebrated its 55th birthday last February.

International Coffee Day isn’t till Sunday 1st October, but as it’s Friday and we’re all winding down for the weekend, we thought you’d like to settle back for a little light hearted reading on something we all know and love!
International Coffee Day is all about appreciating the popular hot drink throughout the entire world. There is a lot of work that goes into your cup of coffee, right from the coffee farms to the supermarket, and International Coffee Day toasts the hard work. There are 77 Member States of the International Coffee Organisation and on Sunday they will all come together to celebrate the event which has now been running for 3 years; the first registered event was 1st October 2015 in Milan, Italy.
The official day for this year’s MacMillan Coffee Morning is Friday 29th September, but we chose today to enjoy our staff’s excellent baking talents along with a delicious cup of coffee!
They did themselves proud, and our showroom was littered with gorgeous cakes ranging from carrot cake to coffee and walnut cake. Paired with expert coffee served from a range of our premium machines in the showroom, it was a tasty morning, and we’re grateful to our staff for taking the time to bake. The only slight issue was there was too much to enjoy, so family members are sure to be enjoying what is on offer tonight!
