Nespresso Espresso Machine: Nespresso Citiz C111 Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother, Chrome Reviews
amazing espresso! Info about frother below (By leiacooks)
Update: if you leave the frother on the black holder while it’s plugged in it will die quickly. You need to unplug the black holder when it’s not in use.
I will say, this product is beautiful. My main issues with ordering online is sometimes things look smaller/bigger than you think, but this product looks just like the picture.
They really went all out on the packaging, making sure it didn’t get damaged. It came in this huge box, you open it to find another box, you open that one to find the actual product box surrounded with paper as cushion. Then, of course, in the product box is the actual product and when you open it youll see the espresso machine protected by styrofoam. Inside the product box you get 18 samplers, instructions/manual, milk frother (if you got it), drink recipes, and how to sign up for their shipment pods.
I followed the instructions on how to set it up, very smooth set up. Very easy! I saw one reviewer complain that you have to hold the button to extract a shot each time you want espresso and that is not true at all. You can set each button for a brewing time (if you like over extracted shots, or shorter shots, whatever floats your boat) and the unit will remember that for next time so you don’t have to hold the button.
Now the espresso, WOW! I’m a barista at my families restaurant and this espresso taste so much better. I cant wait to try the other samplers to see what they all have to offer in terms of flavor. We freshly roast everything in house, and the nespresso taste a lot better (the sampler I tried at least) so that’s something. I’ll list the pros and cons of the milk frother separately because that’s really a separate product that you can buy with or without it.
Absolutely Amazing (By Juan Marcos Tamayo M)
I must say I was skeptical about this homemade espresso technology. It only took one cup of nespresso coffee from a friend who showed me this new way of brewing and I went straight to Amazon and chose this bundle. I have tried a lot of coffee machines, even those with the beans grinding machine and the steam option for the milk and let me say that if you don’t have both money and room enough to have a pro bar machine and you really love a fantastic cup of coffee with lots of aroma and crema with oustanding simplicity, this machine and the aeroccino is what you should have. Believe me, I’m pretty picky, I’ve purchased and discarded several espresso and cappuccino machines and this one has convinced me. Very easy to use, so quickly, with a sturdy construction, parts made in high impact polycarbonate and stainless steel, without many cleaning requirements, resulting in a delicious cup of coffee to enjoy at home, just as if you were at a Juan Valdez coffee shop. You can’t go wrong with this Nespresso machine.
Excellent espresso/cappuccino in less than 2 minutes (By MaryTee)
I’ve been using my Citiz and Aeroccino frother for about 2 weeks. I’m extremely impressed with the quality of the coffee and find myself looking forward to getting up in the morning so I can enjoy a cappuccino. The machine is so easy to use the instructions are a bit startling because they are just 3 short bullet points, but the machine really is that easy to use. The biggest plus in my opinion is how quick (and clean) the whole process is – typically less than 2 minutes. I like a strong espresso flavor (strong, not bitter) so I use 2 capsules for my drinks and I use the “intense” varieties of capsules. I recommend that people purchase the coffee capsules directly from Nespresso – they charge about $7 for a 10-count sleeve; I see them on Amazone for for $10-12 and higher.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase and highly recommend this to anyone who loves quality espresso.
Buy this now and get a $100 voucher from Nespresso (By Reviewer)
Buy this Nespresso machine from Amazon by January 31, 2015 and you can get a $100 voucher from Nespresso which you can use for ordering capsules from their Nespresso Club. This is like buying a car and getting a $100 gas card. Details are on the Nespresso website. To apply for the voucher you’ll need a copy of the Amazon invoice. To get the invoice, go to your Amazon Orders list and click on the Nespresso item. This will take you to the product display page but at the top will be a notification that you already bought the product. Underneath it is a button to “view order details.” Click on that and it will take you to the order detail page for this item. On that page in the upper right is a grey button that says “view or print invoice.” Click on that and a new page will come up with an official-looking invoice. You’ll have to save the invoice (or print it and scan it in) as a pdf, jpeg or gif file. An html (web page) file will not be accepted by Nespresso. Hint: join the Nespresso Club online and get an account number before you apply for the voucher, otherwise you’ll have to wait for the voucher application to be processed to get an account number (up to 4 weeks). I was told by Nespresso that the voucher may be tied to the account number they assign if you don’t have one when you apply for the voucher.
Best espresso machine (By Rosa L. Richards)
The Citiz is one of the better machines out in the market. The only drawback is that water collects in the disposal tray for the used pods, but that is an easy fix. Coffee comes out hot and strong and time for brew period is short. Looks great in the counter. Many compliments from all who have seen it
