Who Makes Nespresso Coffee Machines?

Nespresso is now an extremely well-known brand globally, with many thousands of coffee machines sold. However, it’s less known that while they manufacture all the coffee capsules, the machines themselves are mainly made by third parties. This can sometimes cause confusion. Krups and Magimix are two examples of manufacturers of Nespresso coffee machines.

Krups and Magimix CitiZ Nespesso Machines

Krups and Magimix are two manufacturers that both produce the CitiZ range of Nespresso coffee machines. These are some of the most popular coffee machines that Nespresso produce.

There are three types of CitiZ machines: the regular CitiZ machine, the CitiZ & Milk machine which also comes with an Aeroccino add-on allowing for frothy milk and latte style drinks, and finally the CitiZ & Co configuration which is in essence a double Nespresso machine. This last version of the CitiZ coffee machine is possibly the most suitable for an office environment or similar where multiple people are likely to be queueing up for coffee at the same time.

Here are the 3 types of machine side-by-side for you to compare

Regular Nespresso CitiZ


Nespresso CitiZ & Milk


Nespresso CitiZ & Co

Unfortunately, the CitiZ & Co coffee machines are currently being phased out by Nespresso and as a result may not be back in stock soon. The closest is the Magimix M190 Co.

Is there any Difference in Quality between Krups and Magimix Machines?

In a word: Nope!

Both manufacturers produce the equipment to the same specifications in all situations, and the only thing that changes is really the exterior appearance of the Nespresso machines. In general but not always, Krups tends to favour brighter colours and ‘louder’ designs compared to Magimix who appear more conservative and traditional with their design. Therefore, it depends on what kind of setting you’re using your Nespresso machines in and which colours you happen to like best!
