3.0 out of 5 stars The most delicious coffee but ......, 29 Sep 2013
This review is from: Nespresso CitiZ by Krups XN720540 Coffee Machine, Fire Engine Red (Kitchen & Home)
I read a lot of reviews before I bought this, and then was delighted to find this in our hotel room.

I don't care about the noise because the coffee is delicious. It does make a small cup only, (enough for a tea cup) I use 2 capsules (small beaker) and if you use full fat milk you don't need to use as much but otherwise the coffee is not hot enough in my opinion - that's why I'm giving it 3 stars. I have tried warming the cup beforehand but it makes no difference. As it stands, if I make a cup and add milk I can drink it all down straight away. That, for me, is not hot enough. Makes a lovely crema if you are a coffee snob and my husband loves his espresso but for regular coffee not warm enough at all.

Has to be said though, delicious coffee. I got a full sample pack with mine and discovered new flavours too. Looks good I agree with others, and disagree with some who say it takes time to make. I think its very fast to heat up (although not enough) and I just switch it on, press one button and come back to coffee. Its as fast as the kettle just wish it was as hot. Again that's why I'm giving it 3 stars.

I actually prefer tea, always have done, but after trying this coffee I've started to drink less tea - for the flavour i'd give it 5 stars.

Hope this helps

I found this too and I switched to drinking black coffee and wow, what a revelation, I can actually taste the differences in the coffees now. When I got my first machine a few years ago I took it with milk and did a taste test with various capsules and came away thinking they were only very subtley different but since I switched to black I realised what I'd been missing, they are very different indeed. So glad I made the switch before I went travelling around Central and South America, I was able to have a real coffee adventure. Trust me, acquire the taste for black coffee and you won't regret it. Coffee is perfectly hot enough then too.

Also I find the default coffee settings too small I double both the espresso amount and the lungho and they taste absolutely fine. Saves you having to use 2 pods.

thanks for your comments. I've tried running more water through but didn't like the taste so much. I'm using coffee mate. That helps the temperature.
