I was a bit disappointed when i received it as it came through the post in its original box with an address label stuck to it – it is an xmas present , and it took me ages to get the label off without damaging the packaging.
Bought as replacement / upgrade other one now in caravan. Dont use it myself prefer beer but wife loves it.
I have not got one bad thing to say about this machine. I use it every day and we love the coffee. I find nestle’s monopoly on capsules a little annoying, but i still wouldn’t go back to not having the option of good coffee at home. One thing i think this machine has over some others is the height, as you can put a mug under the nozzle unlike some of the smaller ones. I would probably get this one again if something were to happen to my current one.
Like most of these coffee machines the pods are expensive and i find the coffee doesn’t have a really full flavour having tried most of the grades. As a machine it works well and looks attractive. Having warmed the cup first, coffee from it isn’t that warm but overall it works well.
Makes a great cup of coffee. Quite noisy though, but worth it.
I got this as a xmas gift for my husband, he loves it. Makes coffee that tastes the same as all the top shops, easy to use and small so fits nicely on the side.
Ordered this after tasting coffee from a friends machine over xmas. Build quality is very good & the unit feels chunky and solid. I read a review somewhere saying the capsule collector and drip tray were not good – i disagree & think they are really well designedthe flavour and creme are outstanding compared with both my cafeteire and old gaggia machine. I usually have a splash of milk with coffee, but the flavour and smoothness of the nespresso makes it fantastic black (good for the diet and those on non-dairy)small footprint means it fits well in my kitchen, and also leads to it being used more as it is always out (how many of you have kitchen gadgets tucked away in cupboards that have not seen the light of day in ages – i guess 100%)ordered the 250 welcome pack on thursday at 12 noon, and it arrived at 09:00 friday morning – excellent service for £1. 95i was miffed that i missed (by 4 days. ) the £40 off capsules deal. 3 minor issues:1 capsules are expensive compared with beans/ground coffee but this is compensated for by the ease of use/taste – i hate getting coffee grounds everywhere2 nowhere to recycle the used pods, though i guess they may go out with the normal tins recycling, though they are aluminium not steel. 3 the water container lid can fall inside the container if you’re clumsyhoping the price of the capsules will come down once the patent owneed by nestle runs out next year.
Took a little time to set up but overall very easy yo use. Perfect coffee every time, nice selection supplied. Would recommend to coffee lovers. Large selection of coffee to buy online. The free voucher was a bonus. Very pleased with my purchase.

Was never a fan of instant coffee capsules until my ex partner bropught one of these machines into the house. Unfortunately the machine has now left the house, and when looking for a replacement, i could not find one that looked as good as this – neat, slimline and very easy to use – so have gone for exactly the same model again.
The design is very sleek and compact without compromising on the size of the water tank. My only complaint is that the pods are not easy to position and between 25% and 30% of the time they don’t engage correctly and the machine fails to dispense coffee. There then ensues the fiddly business of opening up the drawer and to seek out and retrieve the pod that hasn’t been used and to attempt to put it back into the machine. The coffee itself is wonderful – perfect flavours and at the perfect temperature.
Well where to start, amazing coffee, great looking machine and easy to clean and use.
One of the best things i have ever bought. Have used it every day for past 7 years and love it.
Great looking machine – better in the flesh than it looks in the photo. If you want a unit that makes a mess, costs five times as much and makes inconsistent espresso this isn’t for you. Update: this is a follow-up to my previous review for this item, above. I’ve now had it for several months, and although the coffee is great and the machine is easy to use, the full cost of buying pods is becoming clear. If you use this machine three to four times a day, expect to pay around £25 a month for pods, excluding the extremely high delivery charge if buying online (i’m lucky in that i have a nespresso ’boutique’ within half an hour’s cycling distance). We’ve now bought a small cafetiere to use packs of ground coffee some of the time, reducing our citiz use by half. If you’re in london and used to paying high prices for coffee from specialist outlets, then the cost might not be a problem, but for me it feels very expensive for five sips compared with buying packs of ground coffee. However, the patent on the pods expires in 2012, so cheaper alternatives may become available. For the time being, though, it’s a nice machine, but costly to use.
I had a nespesso magimix machine for about 6 years and have absolutely loved it. I love nice coffee and enjoy treating friends and visitors with a great cup of coffee at anytime. I live in a very hard water area and although i use a water jug and de-scaled my machine did get worn out and i was gutted. I was completely lost without it and went to find a replacement quickly. The prices had come down since my last purchase quite considerably and a repair would have cost nearly the same as a new one so i looked around for my replacement. Some machines were cheaper and others coffee cheaper but nothing matched up to the standard i’d been used to. My previous coffee machine had a milk tube which you had to switch the machine to milk/steam mode to use and i found it easier to warm the milk in the microwave rather than use the machine (it also made the milk hotter). After searching i decided to stick with nespresso as i love their coffee and have always found their customer service excellent. Their website is easy to use and ordering straight forward and very quick. I opted for the citiz magimix m190 this time without the milk heater (again read the reviews and the comments about difficulty in cleaning) and found it was perfect.
I like the fact that you can set the cup sizes to suit your mugs too. Compact size and looks ace in my slightly retro kitchen. I don’t know anything about coffee but the tasting notes are useful and the ones i’ve tried have been good.
Perfect – purchased two as christmas presents as i have which which i am delighted with. Easy to use, clean and everybody loves the coffee.

Nespresso Citiz Coffee Machine, Cream by Magimix
Love itit makes the best coffee everytime and is so simple to keep clean. I had mine over a year and bought this one for a family member. They now love theirs too(hint, before using the capsules, prime the water to help heat the unit and the cup)recommended.
Very happy with the machine. It makes great coffee faster than boiling a kettle. Only downside is the time taken by nespresso to send free gift voucher.
Bought this for my husbands birthday after agonising over which was the best machine on the market and speaking to loads of coffee loving friends about it. It’s really convenient, quick to use, self cleaning and the coffee is great.
Fabulous machine, does exactly what i expected it to do. Great tasting coffee, minimum fuss, no mess.
Great machine little louder then other one i have.
Was very impressed to receive this item the very next morning after placing the order at lunchtime. Stylish and looks good in my kitchen, can’t beat that lovely coffee smell.
Having had one of these gifted to me 2 years ago, i had no hesitation in purchasing one as a present. The machine arrived ahead of schedhule and at just under £100 it beat the cost of where i could buy it elsewhere. The great thing abvout this machine is how simple and quick it is to use and how easy it is to clean. You will also find that nespresso customer sevice is second to none, ordering capsules and general enquiries are handled with superb efficiency.
Great product – is the second one we have purchased. Extremely quick delivery too .
Sent as a present and a success.
We love this neat little machine and look forward to sitting down to enjoy our coffee-once we’ve considered which ‘pod’ to use livante or a lungo etc.
Retro styling, space saving and the perfect cup of coffee. This machine measures an espresso and a full coffee to the perfect strength. The spurt at the end of pouring produces a creme on the top so i heat my milk in the microwave and get a delicious flat white exactly to my taste. It is easy to keep clean and has renewed my love of coffee. Even some friends who think they don’t like coffee love my coffee and i know it’s because they use instant coffee at home so no wonder they think they don’t like coffee. Even more pleased because i bought this through amazon market sold as used but it arrived as brand new complete with the original sealed box, full instructions and tray of nespresso capsules and i only paid £100. 00 so even better than expected.
I bought it as a xmas present for my husband and we havent opened it yet but i know he will be thrilled with it.
First class machine used at least twice a day have tried all the capsules and like them all very good.
Smart looking machine, came with a sample of capsules and a winter offer of a gift card which you register for , it came quite quickly. It needs a bit of perfecting to get the water hot. Think it will be used a fair bit once i have found my favorite coffee.
Great product and easy to use. It provides a quick and very good coffee every time and at a temperature that allows you to drink it straight away.
Excellent coffee machine, i would highly recommend this machine.
This is a great addition to any kitchen, i bought this model as it has set volumes for both lungo and espresso coffee, you can also adjust the volumes yourself. It’s quiet addictive trying new flavours, as i also bought the introduction offer of 250 pods, you just need to warn your bank manager when you have bought one. My wife and daughter also love it, and all round great purchase.
Really fresh tasting coffee at hand, so easy to use. But one, if you love the taste and smell of fresh coffee.
