Easier than a trip to the corner cafe

Coffee convenience is always on hand with the Nespresso Citiz Espresso Maker.

Sometimes there is no substitute for convenience. When out and about and hunger strikes, there are many options available to satiate an appetite. While fast food and snacks can hold off the hunger, caffeine lovers go another route. Luckily, corner cafés and coffee carts are plentiful, accessible and usually offer a quality product. But what of those moments when convenience is needed at home or in the office?

The Nespresso Citiz Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Automatic Milk Frother are a convenient duo designed to eliminate any hassle involved in getting a cup of coffee. The machine uses Nespresso premeasured coffee capsules. Simply pop one into the machine and push the button for your espresso. The heating system and high-pressure pump deliver hot coffee at optimal extraction, while the adjustable tray accommodates different size cups. The included milk frother finishes your drink, and holds up to 8 ounces of frothed milk.

Well-suited for parties or an office environment, the coffee duo is easy to use and a breeze to clean up. Clearly, the draw with this pair is the lack of coffee grounds to deal with. Simply remove the capsule when finished and add another when ready. With premeasured coffee capsules, you won't unlock the full-bodied flavor of freshly ground coffee beans, but sometimes, it's all just a matter of convenience.
