What customers say about "Key Specs"
Nespresso Citiz (C111) Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother
  • This Citiz makes a great latte and has been consistent from the get go. An actual hot latte, with great flavor.
  • Big water tank so you don't have to keep refilling it.
  • Auto shut off when inactive.
  • Good tasting coffee. Milk frothier is superb!
  • The only negatives on this Nespresso I have is the temperature of the water and the noise level. I do wish it came out hotter, but the flavor of the packs do so much to overcome the temperature issue.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machines
  • Coffee is very good and hot, with excellent crema, just like it is with the Citiz.
  • It is just not real espresso. Real espresso has crema, a thick oily layer on top. This is what makes espresso have a kick.
  • Relatively good value/dollar, great tasting espresso, makes an amazing crema, easy to clean and super reliable.
  • Heats up very quickly, i.e. making coffee is quite fast.
  • Smaller water reservoir means frequent refilling.
  • The only downside is the small water tank, but what do you expect with something so compact? Great for a small apartment.

What customers say about "Features"
Nespresso Citiz (C111) Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother
  • It is noisy, but less than the electric coffee grinder. Makes a cup of coffee fast.
  • The feature to set the time for a long coffee it is very useful, especially for my wife the prefers a "lighter" coffee. We haven't had any problem since we started to use it.
  • Ability to over/under extract shots to your liking.
  • The pod waste bin is REALLY small.
  • Vibrates when in use, moves around. Not too loud, but not quiet either.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machines
  • I love that there are so many different coffee companies that make pods, including some of the best Italian coffees, like Kimbo and Vergnano.
  • The machine is very elegantly designed and it has great features like the auto shut off which comes in handy for me cause I get a bit forgetful.
  • Capsules are a little expensive (but worth every cent).
  • Reservoir is more difficult to remove than on the Citiz. It clicks into the machine at the top via two plastic 'hooks' which only retract when one opens the reservoir's hinged lid.
