Summary: This espresso machine has a small footprint and puts out the most consistent cup of espresso. I have a much more expensive machine that grinds whole bean, tamps it, then makes the espresso but I have chosen this Nespresso maker as my daily use machine. As for the pods, buy them directly from Nespresso for the best price.
Summary: A friend gave me an expresso from her new Nespresso Pixie. I was not only impressed with how good it was, but also by the quickness and ease of preparing it. Up to then, expresso was a hit or miss proposition made with a lot of effort. The CitiZ proved to be as good as I was hoping. While a little sturdier and larger than the Pixie, it was still compact and well designed. While essentially new, there was only minor damage to the lip of the lid to the water reservoir.
Summary: The Citiz is a well built machine and produces delicious coffee. I wanted to enjoy Starbucks quality at home; the Citiz enables me to do that very quickly and very easily. All would be very well indeed, if only the espresso capsules were not so pricey....I use at least three capsules to create each large and enjoyable serving.
Summary: Great product if you like true espresso and you are patient with the "crema" of the coffee and the layers of flavor. You have to like the coffee varieties that Nespresso offers which I do but if you do not that can be a problem since it is customized coffee solution.
Fast delivery, quick processing, good price, and great cup of joe. In love!

Summary: Fast delivery and processing. Best espresso shots I've ever had and I work for a Starbucks! I'm saving a lot of money with this machine and even the decaf shots taste like real coffee. This is the best $200 I've spent on a frivolous purchase. Also thank you for undercutting retailers by $100. I almost bought a pixie for $250 but it wasn't the model I wanted or desired color. My machine works wonderfully and came with a warranty.
Summary: THIS MACHINE MAKES BETTER COFFEE THAN MY $1600 JURA CAPRESSO MACHINE THAT GRINDS THE BEANS AND THERE IS NO CLEAN UP. IF YOU ARE NOT IN LOVE WITH HIGHEND COFFEE THEN YOU PROBABLY DO NOT NEED THIS.
