All of the Citiz models of Nespresso coffee machines were designed to suit high paced modern urban lifestyles. These compact machines with push button ease of operation easily fit into the limited space available in many modern kitchens and provide excellent coffee with the minimum amount of fuss and mess.
The single Citiz uses Nespresso capsules to make great espresso at the touch of a button. Simply lift the lever on top of the machine, insert your capsule and select what length of coffee you want using either of the two pre-programmed buttons then let the Citiz do the rest. The quality and freshness of your cup of coffee is guaranteed by the Nespresso capsule. The next time that you lift the lever to insert a capsule the used one is ejected into an internal storage hopper, large enough to hold ten used capsules, so that you can carry on making coffee without interruption. The removable 1lt water tank holds enough cold water to ensure a steady stream of great coffee too. The Citiz is an automatic machine that stops itself when a predetermined volume of coffee has been delivered into the waiting cup.
The Citiz offers you two pre-programmed coffee options controlled by individual buttons on the machine. Use one to make an espresso or a short coffee and another to produce a longer brew. The exact volume of coffee that is delivered by each press of the button can be easily set to suit your taste in coffee as well as the size of your coffee cups. The Citiz lets you use any size of coffee cup with ease. Small espresso cups sit neatly on the platform below the coffee spout. When you want to use a taller mug or latte glass the platform conveniently swings up and out of the way to provide all the height that you need. The thermoblock heating system in Citiz the warms up very quickly so you aren't kept waiting for your coffee. It takes around 45 seconds from when you first switch your machine on for the Citiz to be ready to make its first cup of coffee for the day.
The Citiz is kind to both the environment and your pocket as it automatically switches to an energy saving mode after thirty minutes of inactivity. As with all Nespresso machines the Citiz is extremely simple to clean. The used capsule holder, coffee platform and drip trays can all be cleaned in the dishwasher while the coffee brewing system requires minimal cleaning. Simply running the machine without a capsule inserted is sufficient to flush the brewing unit clean. We strongly recommend that you descale your machine every three months to ensure a continuing high standard of coffee production. Descaling kits can be ordered from Nespresso along with your capsules. Each Citiz machine comes with a welcome pack of 16 Nespresso capsules; one of each blend to get you started as well as detailed information regarding how to order your capsules from Nespresso.
The Citiz has proven to be a very robust and reliable machine. Each one carries a three year guarantee backed by Nespresso for total peace of mind.
