Nespresso®* U Review vs Nespresso®* Citiz Review

Nespresso®* U Review vs Nespresso®* Citiz Review: Differences

Style and Available Colors

The Nespresso®* U is comprised mostly of plastic and is designed in a sleek modern design with colors that range from a black to burnt orange. The Nespresso®* Citiz is a full-bodied espresso and coffee machine with a beautiful retro design. Made of plastic and stainless steel the Citiz is just a bit bigger than the Nespresso®* U but arguably packs bigger flavor and is more favored in taste by reviews.

Water Reservoir Size and Drip Tray

Among the Nespresso®* U's other useful features is a removable drip tray which allows for easy cleaning. The drop tray is easily removed with no additional tools needed to handle the job. The water tank is 27 oz. a decent size for a small machine. If the dip tray is removed the machine is capable to accommodating larger cup sizes, which can put the 27 oz. water tank to good use. Like the U the Citiz has removable parts that make cleaning easy. Even the large 34 oz. water tank is easily removed with no additional tools.
