The Nespresso®* CitiZ
Nespresso®* CitiZ - Modern and Efficient
The Nespresso®* CitiZ machine is considered one of the classics in the OriginalLine. It's sleek designs and high functionality make it a go-to choice for many first time Nespresso®* buyers. A unique feature of this machine is that it is convenient to make any type of espresso inspired beverage.
With the easy fold down tray, you can have a perfectly brewed espresso in no time. Or if you're looking to get a bit more creative, just fold up the tray, brew an espresso into a latte glass, froth some milk in the additional milk frother, and before you know it you've got the perfect latte or cappuccino.
The Nespresso®* CitiZ and Milk Espresso Machine
There are two machine options when it comes to the CitiZ, either the regular Nespresso®* CitiZ machine or the CitiZ & Milk. The CitiZ & Milk machine is as reliable and sleek as the regular version with one minor difference, it does not have the additional space for the milk frother attachment. The frother can be pruchased seperately however. The stand-alone frother will also quickly warm and frother your milk, making it much easier to get cafe quality espresso drinks right in your own home. We take a look at the Pros and Cons of this Nespresso®* machine.
The Best Espresso Machine?
The Nespresso®* CitiZ is one of Nespresso's®* most popular espresso machines and considered by many to be one of the best espresso machines produced by Nespresso®*. The CitiZ is a machine that ranks as one of the more averagely priced Nespresso®* machines, and is available in three different options. The most expensive and ellaborate version of the options is the CitiZ & Milk machine, coming in around $299. This is the most ellaborate machine in that there is a built in dock for the Nespresso®* aeroccino to be attached. This dock allows for the aeroccino to quickly warm and froth your milk, which is perfect when you want those coffee house beverages at home.
This Nespresso®* uses around 1260 watts, so it's a powerful machine, but it also comes wth a special engergy-saving feature that switches off the machine automatically after 30 minutes of non-use. The machine also comes with a 1-liter, or 33 ounce, water container that attaches in the back. To catch the used coffee capsules there is the dispossable tray which includes a removable drip-tray. All of these features make cleaning the Nespresso®* CitiZ a breezy.
The second CitiZ machine option is the CitiZ Bundle, coming in at $299 as well. This option is very similar to the CitiZ & Milk, except that the aeroccino milk frother is a free-standing entity. This also allows for quick and easy milk frothing. And the final and most simple of the CitiZ options is just the machine itself, which sells for $249. There is no aeroccino milk frother in this package, but you get the powerful and sleek version of the machine for the best value.
A Nespresso®* CitiZ Review - The Pros
There are certain things people love about the CitiZ, whether it be just the machine, the CitiZ Bundle, or the CitiZ & Milk. One of the most popular things about the machine is it's sleek and powerful design. The CitiZ can power on and heat up in about 30 seconds. Instead of using technology to boil the water that passes through the coffee capsules, the the Nespresso®* CitiZ uses super-hot thermalblock technology that heats the water as it pushes it through it.
The machine also comes with both the espresso and lungo pour options in a one-touch button, and you can program the amount of water that comes out in each option. This makes it efficient and easy to have whatever type of espresso you'd prefer. Our Nespresso®* compatible coffee capsules work well on either setting, and we also offer two lungo varieties.
Some of the cons we'll cover in this Nespresso®* CitiZ review is mainly about the aeroccino attachment. While there is not much at fault with the design of the actual Nespresso®* machine, the aeroccino is know to break occasionally. The aeroccino forthers has a small device inside of it that twirls around very quickly in order to aerate the milk and make it foamy. This device is detachable for cleaning, but can also pop off sometimes while in use.
Compatible with Other Coffee Capsules?
The Nespresso®* CitiZ machine says that it's quality seal design technology will only fit Nespresso®* capsules, however, here at Gourmesso we have worked to design a capsule that is guaranteed to work in all OriginalLine Nespresso®* machines, including the Nespresso®* CitiZ.
We want to bring you the best possible espresso experience for your CitiZ machine or any other Nespresso®* machine, and we believe that the customer should have more than one option in selecting a type of coffee capsule. We have developed over 14 different Nespresso®* compatible coffee capsules for our customers to try! And one of our 15 different Nespresso®* compatible capsules are made from the highest quality espresso, and you can buy them at a price that's 30% more affordable than anyone else out there.
