How to reset the Nespresso Citiz

Nespresso Citiz is a coffee machine that allows you to make espresso drinks at home with the touch of a button. With Nespresso Citiz, you can enjoy professional-quality espresso drinks without leaving the comfort of your own home. It is a compact mid-range coffee maker with a relatively large water reservoir. It heats up quickly, offers customizable brew sizes, and produces up to 19 bars of pressure. It’s also sleek, simple, and reliable.

The lifespan of most coffee machines can be anywhere between 5 and 10 years, depending on the type. Nespresso Citiz machines are generally made of quality parts and tried-and-tested designs which means they should be on the mid to upper end of that range.

We’ve found the most common reasons why Nespresso machines stop working properly is either because they need descaling, or because they need to be reset back to their factory settings.

Perform the following steps in order-
