Interesting concept. Has not this type of vending (warm drinks in a can) been a mainstay in China and Japan?

I lived in Japan in 2001 and 2004. Big fan of can coffee (kan koohii). My favorites are Georgia Coffee (a Coca-Cola Product) and BOSS Coffee (BOSS Coffee is the boss of them all since 1984!)

Hot and cold vending (in the same machine) is most definitely a mainstay. I have long thought that bringing the machines to the states and making a killing would be a great business.
