    I checked out that machine at Williams Sonoma today that I linked above.



    It was ok, but I think I fell in love with this one:

    just gotta find a good price on one. they're around $700. but i like the milk frother and the adjustable options on everything.

    Just get a regular Citiz. Please.
    If you want adjustable, go with a real espresso machinee. You're up to a good start with 700$.

    yeah, i'm deciding between the two, the Citiz just looks ugly to me. i've ruled out that other one with the removable milk compartment, going to go with the nespresso frother.

    Hold the button to pass more water to desired level one time and in the future that will be the standard water level til you adjust or reset.

    Far too few coffee in there.

    @xericx: The DeLonghi citiz looks nice, imo.

    Still loving my Citiz. Roma my favourite capsule. Five different dinner party guests over the past year have purchased one after coffee here.

    Our boutique pales compare to Madison Ave, but I use the iPhone app for everything. Quick service.

    Not sure what Nespresso Canada was thinking with their Crate and Barrel and Williams Sonoma reps. Two girls I saw looked like bag ladies with accompanying scowls.

    Nice! Where did you end up buying it? Let us know what you think of it after you try a few caps and get it running



    I'm available for personal consultations for a marginal fee.

    So, I love espresso, but never wanted to spend the time and money getting set-up with a real machine, grinder, etc. I have decided I want to try a nespresso machine.

    I do have a few questions im hoping you guys can help with.

    Is the Citiz the model to go with for a first machine, or should I get one with the frother?

    How is the nespresso taste wise?

    Is there any other makers of the capsules that will work with the nespresso machine?

    Is nespresso the best single serving espresso machine?


    Thanks in advance!

    1. Citiz is good, citiz with frother is better, but there are other options some cheaper some more expensive, i recommend stopping by a store that sells them and trying some out
    2. i think it tastes great
    3. there are some 3rd party that you can load yourself but nespresso has a lot of options so its pointless
    4. different strokes for different folks

    anyone give me thoughts on the strongest and least acidic capsule? i am currently drinking Arpeggio
