What’s more, it comes with a 19 bar high performance pump creates perfect pressure to extract coffee full of flavors. It also allows the machine to warm up in merely 25 seconds which is a lot less as compared to the other basic espresso machines and even some super espressos.
Glance on the Nespresso Citiz Espresso Machine
It just takes about 30 seconds to get the machine ready for brewing and a minute after the insertion of your favorite Nespresso pod for brewing a cup of coffee. After just a press of a single button, you are ready to drink a cup of tasty espresso that’s fairly comparable with any of the best rated espresso machines available. Can you think of anything more easier than this? I guess, there is absolutely no option if you are searching for the simplest machine that makes no mess on your platform and can do this job faster. However, there are more options by the brand and we have written about them (https://www.friedcoffee.com/best-nespresso-machines/), but Citiz is one being liked by many users.
The pods used in this machine by Nespresso are in themselves a quality product. They contain high quality ground coffee vacuum packed in aluminum shells which costs around $0.70 minimum. Although, there are other brands too making Nespresso compatible pods that are more cost friendly.

Setup of Your New Nespresso Citiz
The machine is fairly easy to setup without much fuzz of arranging things. The size is fairly a compact tallboy and you won’t have to make any special arrangements to accommodate it. It’s a little bit bigger than it’s sibling Nespresso Pixie, but it has a bigger water tank too allowing to overcome short refilling time.
Once the machine is put on the desired place, just fill the water tank after washing it up and put it into place. Fill the pod reservoir with pods, plug in the machine, wait 25 seconds to let it warm up and press for either Lungo (Double Espresso) or the Espresso and put your cup below the spout. That’s it, your are done. Fold the drip tray if you have tall cups.
With a very feasible price tag, Citiz gives amazing espresso shots directly comparable with those of cafes or other costly espresso machines. Thanks to the quality packed Nespresso capsules that come in a variety of flavors to have different flavor every other morning.
Using Aeroccino Frother
Nespresso Citiz can be purchased with or without frother as desired. So if you are purchasing the machine for the second time or already have a milk frother, you can save some bucks by getting the variant without frother.
Using the frother is pretty simple. There is just one single button which does all the operations. Press the button for 1 second to froth the hot milk and 2 second press for cold milk froth.
We hope you have already made up your mind to get the Citiz, but before that we suggest you to with the Nespresso Citiz with Aeroccino frother by Delonghi as this version is the more reliable variant.
