That perfect office machine!
20 December 2014
Summary: Bought this for my office after using the pixie at home for a year. Where i work, a cup of coffee is 5 bucks at the local coffee shop. It's really good, just don't feel like spending that much all the time. This is a perfect alternative and I like brewing up a lungo when that coffee fix needs to happen. Capsule sleeves are easy to drop in the backpack to haul into work. The small footprint of this machine makes it a easy addition to my office.
Summary: It is very well designed and a pleasure to use. The coffee is excellent served up with perfect foam on top of the cup. Your choice of coffees is a bit limited compared to Keurig, but the machine is so much better looking and easier to use, it's worth it. Careful how you put in the capsules. Close the the lever tightly to make sure the capsule is well penetrated (with big enough holes), so you'll get the full cup of coffee.
Summary: Reasonable size and weight and chic design make this machine favorable. The espresso cubes are a bit more expensive while compared to other brands. One problem that might bother you would be the loud noise that it makes while preparing the espresso. In my previous house I could not use it early in the morning as my neighbors would become annoyed.But if you are living in a house which is not made of wood, the noise will be tolerable.
Summary: This review will hit upon several issues, especially as they relate to other reviews here: size, heat and speed, efficiency, and satisfaction. Some of the reviews on this page made me nervous about both the Citiz and the Pixie. I have been using and loving my Nespresso Esenza for 3.5 years, and it has never had a problem--it doesn't leak, it makes perfectly hot espressos, the crema on the espresso is excellent, it has a nice, simple design, and its footprint is perfect...
Excerpt: I actually finally caved and purchased this after trying a similar Nespresso machine at more than one family's house, where I babysit. The machine makes such amazing, fresh tasting, high quality espresso, and it seriously seems magical to me, in a way. I usually don't feel like I ever get true "coffee shop quality" coffee or espresso from any store purchased machine. I feel like the products that I've purchased nearly always end up being less high quality than expected.
Space-saving & delicious product, pods hard to get
19 December 2012
Excerpt: We have stopped using milk in our morning coffee because the crema produced by this awesome little machine is so thick and delicious. It heats up lightning-fast, in 25-30 seconds, as opposed to our old Keurig that took up to 5 minutes to be ready. Also, it has about 1/3 the footprint of our old machine, so we get some of our precious counter space back. I'd say it's still a little pricey for what it is (make sure you hit it on sale), and finding pods can be a pain.
