If you like espresso and don't like hassles, you'll love the Nespresso Citiz! The espresso may not be quite as good as from a traditional espresso maker, but it's still pretty darn good and you can't beat the convenience, basically just drop an espresso capsule in, press a button, and wait 30 seconds or so for your drink! Produces a nice crema. The pour size is adjustable so if you like your espresso a little long or short versus the traditional cup size, it's easy to reprogram the machine to do so. This machine was a refurb, but mine came out of the box looking brand new. One warning: the machine doesn't ship with any espresso capsules, and you can't buy them locally (unless you live in NY or Chicago) so be sure to order some capsules from Nespresso.com as soon as you order your machine or you'll find yourself with a machine but no espresso (which, sadly, is what happened to me).
Coffee quality is also not the best. My machine was refurbished so it may be why but I am not satisfied with it. My family all have Nespresso machines various models and this one just takes forever to start making coffee. Quality of the beverage is also not the best. I am using original pods but my sister's machine makes a much better quality coffee. So this is the worst one out of all of the nespresso machines I ever had experience with. Milk frother works great.
A friend had reccomended Nespresso but I was dubious until I saw overstock had refurbished models for less. It has been amazing. I have a delicious latte in less than 2 minutes. I've even been waking up early to savor it. Just very hopeful it will continue long past the 6 month warranty.
Great product/product results. Nervious at first with Refurbished item, no issues so far. A little noisey. Pods can only be bought through Nespresso site or imitation pods at bed bath beyond online only (havent tried yet).
