hi,

just to check, is it better to buy the aerocino (did i spell correctly?) with a stand alone citiz as compared to getting the citiz with milk maker? any disadvantages like cleaning, etc?

reason being that I liek to drink coffee with milk and hence, will def need to have a milk maker

Hi Unwanted,
The purpose of running a MO is basically to split cost so that people can get the product at a cheaper cost (and maybe make a small profit along the way). If you are not running a real business, you would not be able to estimate all the costs of bringing the product in. Why don't you put in this forum the extra cost per unit (up to breakeven point) that you have incurred for the bringing in the Citz in for the bros here. I don't think they would mind paying you the extra if the difference is not that large.

We appreciate the service that you and your friends have provided for so far in this MO and we don't want it to end because of your miscalculation of some charges.

Hi,
Just some FAQ about the Citiz.

To those who had ordered, will be keeping those who are in reservaton till Saturday only.
As i need to make way for the rest of the buddies first.

What's Citiz machine?
It's the latest range of assembly coming from Nespresso itself.
I think it's been out only for 6 months? Not too sure, but they sure look hellava cool.
It's the limbo among the cars.
They work the same as other machines though.

The difference is..

i) Much sleeker. We taking in the Limossine black and the 60's white. They are much nicer than the colors we looking at in Singapore. I swear you will give it a 2nd look when you see them.
ii) Power saving mode
iii) Foldable tray for loading your tall cups.
iv) Small

They are like the rest, fully made and assembled in Switzerland.

Where we getting them from?
From Europe Nespresso Club itself but not other vendor.
With identical power compliances as in Singapore.
Carefully negotiated.
Got only those made in Switzerland ones.

My advise is do not anyhow order them in yourself from Ebay, Amazon,etc.
BTW normally we personally tested them before sending to Singapore.
Get from the boutique better if you want to get a machine from outside this MO.

Will we still bring in?
No. We are not bringing in this anymore. Will close this MO very soon.
Trust me man. The last MO, i said closing in 4 weeks, i closed it 4 days later instead. Haa
And people were screaming at me.

Others models? Maybe, shall see whether we have the time and extra cash flow.
The current MO, we actually miscalculated and suffered some small losses here and there and piled up huge losses.
There's a series of big mistakes somewhere and we crap it up.
Mainly because we forgot to count Aerocinno, excess weight, forgotten insurance, exorbitant forex rates , etc. So we have a phobia running for this Citiz M190 and unlikely we can maintain this price.

Just some interesting info.
Other models we are looking at and we considered to bring in before?

M100

The most basic, cutest smallest machine.
The one that's always on the Geoge Clooney Ad.
Why we looking at this? Cause it's really very cheap. I heard everywhere it's the best seller, i've no idea why it's not available in Singapore. I've totally no idea. I've no idea why we did not MO this too.

For people who wants no nonsense, just straight for the kill for the coffee.
Not gonna pay extra for any unnecessary-whether-you-need-it-and-most-likely-you-do-not features,look,etc.
Most value for money, this guy. No doubt.

Citiz & Milk

Everyone likes milk. I've no idea why.
So this guy is the man as he has everything.
It comes with a pair of cups and i've no idea what's the tall ordinary cup for plus one espresso cup.
To be honest, i find the free cups are nonsense, don't put too much hope on it.

When i was in France, when i had this extra little moment of time.
I was smoking outside, bored and counting what people are hoggin out from the shop. It's mostly these two models.


Problem?
Many many many unimaginable nightmares you can think of. It's really not easy, not easy conducting MOs.
So those two models mentioned on top, will only put into KIV.

We need a breath.
The key guy behind all the merchandising is on honeymoon. The other guys settling those capsules, accessories,etc are going for breaks.
My boss is killing me, my wife is yelling at me, to spend more serious time in my real life.

Success rate of proceeding is less than 30% chance at the moment. So my advise, get what you can get or get from the local boutiques if you miss the boat.

On my part i will be blasting mails to the key guys to help keep this MO alive.

Thank everyone for this success.
Thank the guys behind.
Thank the courier guy, i still don't know his name.
Thank the Nespresso's friendly staffs worldwide.

Lastly, of course we must thank Nespresso for this marvelous product.

All current users, all coming to be users, all ex users, all not users.
You are always welcome to message me for help or queries.

Trust me man, i pass by all the boutiques around the world.
Each telling me some new things, i now kinda know everything and i email this nice CSO who always give me prompt replies in Switzerland.

I'll provide my assistance for life, for what i can do.

Enjoy ur coffee folks. BTW when you guys drink coffee, stop using the spoon and stir the coffee so hard as if trying to form a tornado. It kills the aroma. Just some tips. Haa.

By the way the CITIZ C110 and CITIZ & MILK C120 is available in singapore (ION Boutique)

so does it mean that now CITIZ will have international warranty?

The price the sale gal quote me is $548 and $678.

it feel the coffee is not hot enough....is it because of the cold milk? cos i ask for cappuccino

Warranty is onsite 2 year

it's all stated on page one and the answer is no.
I think the warranty stated on the machines i brought back is 3 years warranty but think only valid for countries that has magimix only.
I've no exact idea if it's really not honored as i know it's serviced in Australia as well.
But put as no warranty.
The machines that we used to carry out has warranty, but nobody has any broken for almost 2 yrs.
So it's decided that we forgo the warranty and open our choices to all the choices we have in Europe.
Besides nicer, it's cheaper.

The citiz that are MO are the black and white.
There's reviews that the red and grey ones' handle will scrape off the black coating after wear and tear.
They are not available here, and they are far more nicer in the real thing if you've seen them all side by side.
Hi unwanted, I have been trying to find the scaping off of the black handles on the red citiz, do you happen to have the url? Googling did not show anything

thanks in advance!
