Top Customer Reviews
So the manual machine and grinder went back to the store, to be replaced by the Nespresso CitiZ with Milk. Think of it as a Keurig machine for espresso shots. It's simple to use -- just insert a prepackaged espresso capsule from Nespresso and push the button for a small or large shot. This machine is a 19-bar pressure-driven espresso maker, and when combined with the high quality grinds available from Nespresso it brews a very nice cup of espresso with surprisingly rich crema.
The CitiZ with Milk also includes a built in milk heater / frother unit that can either produce hot thick milk for lattes or foamed milk for macchiatos and cappuccinos. The frother is easy to use - just select the mixing attachment you want (one for un-frothed milk, one for foamy frothed milk), add some milk, pop the cover on, and press a button. The frother heats the milk and optionally froths it, then turns itself off when it's done. Pour the milk over your espresso (or vice versa) and you're done.
One area where the machine could stand improvement is the temperature of the milk. The aeroccino accessory only heats milk to around 150 degrees, so your coffee beverages aren't very hot. They're not as hot as using real steamed milk, so if you like your cappuccinos and lattes hotter than this you'll need to microwave them for a few seconds before drinking.
The only other downside is that you have to buy the capsules from Nespresso, and in many areas they're only available online, so you have to plan ahead lest you run out. At $0.60 per capsule they're more expensive than grinding your own beans, but considerably less expensive than going to Starbucks every day. A wide variety of beans is available in a range of strengths with different characters, but only 3 of the 16 varieties are decaffeinated. If you're a decaf drinker you'll wish you had more options.
Other than that, we've been delighted with the Nespresso so far.
You should be warned: the Aeroccino Milk Frother does not make the milk particularly hot. Now, don't be mistaken - I love it. I think it makes beautiful foam, and heats milk to a temperature that I consider to be *immediately drinkable* but if you like your latte to be HOT, you should skip the Aeroccino and just get the espresso maker on its own. I hated having to steam milk on my old espresso maker - I found the process loud, messy, and the spout hard to keep clean. The Aeroccino is super easy to clean (I rinse with water after each use), super easy to use, and I don't mind WARM versus HOT milk, so I am very happy.
Also, I am going to mention (because it was a big concern for me as a non-dairy person) that it will warm AND froth/foam both SOY and ALMOND milk perfectly. The foam is lovely with both, and the "milk" is warmed and smooth. It has no problems with the slightly thicker consistancy, and comes out beautifully.
1- Quality of the machine: As far as I have searched, this is the only espresso machine (at this price range at least) with 19 Bar of pressure. Most of them are 15 Bar. 19 Bar means more power to extract the juice out of the little pod (each pod contains about 6 grams of coffee). The machine has survived 3.5 years of use with about 2 cups of coffee a day, so that means decent quality.
Of course you need to take care of that to keep it on shape. It is recommended to to descale it every 300 shots.
2- Quality of shots: They are almost excellent. There has been occassions that I felt they don't taste as good as usual, but overall, it tastes even better than what you get from starbucks. They have a wide variety of pods but I think only few of them are worth buying. I would say that Indria and Ristretto are the best.
3- Milk Frother: Here comes the tricky part. You can not get a nice foam from any type of milk. You have to use whole milk to get a nice foam, and not every type of whole milk works the same. After trying different brands, I can say that different whole milks could end in very different results; some won't make any foam at all. And the best thing to use is half and half, it would give you awesome taste and foam.
4- Money: Don't think you are spending too much on the unit; since you will spend much more on the pods through the time.
If you are only getting this instead of a $500 Breville because it is cheaper, think twice. You should be buying this, only because you want to avoid mess, yet get an excellent espresso\cappuccino in a minute.
I am giving it 4 star only because the pods seems to be more expensive than they should be (65 cents for 6 grams of coffee) and the frother is not as ideal as an actual one.
