I purchased the Nespresso Citiz&Milk Originaline Coffee machine recently and have been pleasantly surprised at how well the coffee is made. The little machine delivers an excellent, well brewed, piping hot coffee full of creama and packed on flavour. My husband and I drink decaf coffee only and tried both the Nespresso Ristretto and the Starbucks Decaf Espresso capsules and can't believe just how close they both taste with the perfect balance of fragrance and strong flavour topped with foamy cream. We no longer need to go to our local Starbucks for an afternoon decaf Americano when we can enjoy one at our fingertips! The machine heats up in seconds and the coffee comes out almost instantly, so thick and creamy that I thought it had cream/milk in it already! The set up is very easy and the manual is easy to read. We had to adjust the water level to the desired amount in our cup by pressing and holding the lungo button down while the machine is on, the maximum amount of water is 200 ml (3/4 cup) which is good for a 12 oz coffee mug when it's topped with foamy cream. The capsules are easy to load and drops to the holder when it's done (you need to lift the handle again once the coffee is done). The capsule is easy to clean out by removing the foil on top, emptying the coffee grounds and with a quick rinse, it's easy to recycle as it has an aluminium holder. There is a Nespresso recycling program but we just put the empties into our City recycling blue bins.

The Aeroccino milk frother is very easy to use as well. The lower maximum level takes 100 ml of milk or cream enough for 1 big or 2 smaller size cups of hot coffee. The red button flashes and the milk frother takes seconds to heat and stir up into thick foam, one press for hot and press and hold for cold. The upper maximum level takes 200 ml of milk or cream, enough for 1 tall glass of cold drink. To clean, just pull out the round whisk ring which hooks easily with a magnet to the jug and carefully wash with a soft sponge and rinse without getting the bottom wet.

We are extremely pleased with our Nespresso machine and very surprised at how the little coffee capsule is packed full of flavour. You won't be disappointed, this machine is the way to go if you want just one or two cups of coffee and don't want a whole pot of it. I no longer will be using my Bialetti stove top espresso maker or my French press, it's no comparison to the Nespresso machine. I am so glad I finally found a great coffee machine that delivers exactly what I have been looking for, small in space and packs a punch without breaking my bank account!! Well done Nespresso, I am hooked!!…:)
