Ode to Nespresso CitiZ

Nespresso CitiZ Finally, after three and a half years of being a roommate, my brother Sergio has made a significant contribution to the household. That contribution, the new peace in my life, is the Nespresso CitiZ with Milk machine.

Nespresso is like the Apple of the coffee world. The CitiZ with Milk is like a shiny, new Macbook Pro. The machine has an incredible design and delivers a superb product. You should see the creama on the espresso shot. Oh, the crema! The milk frother can make for a cappuccino or latte in about 30 seconds.

Nespresso came into our lives by fate. When Sergio and I were in New Zealand in February, we stayed at guest house on a winery that had the CitiZ with Milk. It took no time for us to grab an espresso capsule out of the cabinet and witness the magic. We ran through all of the available capsules halfway through our stay -- probably averaging three to four espresso drinks each per day -- and had to find the owners with tails between our legs to ask for more capsules to get us through the remaining days. It was as if we got into the cookie jar before dinner.

Now that we have our a Nespresso machine at home, we can indulge! See the glory in these photos.
