Nespresso Pixie Review
by Emily, Kitchen Kapers English Village:
The Pixie features an ultra fast heating technology, which brews a cup of espresso in less than 25 seconds. What’s great about the Pixie is the thermal blocking unit and water circuit, which ensures a quick coffee brew. This machine has a modern design with a variety of cool, bright colors to make a statement on small spaces while brewing a coffee very fast. Even though the Pixie is a great product, I would suggest making a better reservoir. I would buy this because of the fun and colorful modern design and its convenient size.
Nespresso Pixie Review
by Zach, Kitchen Kapers East Gate:
The Nespresso name carries a lot of weight in the beverage world, and their Pixie line of espresso machines is perhaps their greatest product yet. Its stylish yet space-conscious design is available in a multitude of colors, and it’s sure to feel right at home in your kitchen or office.
Nespresso offers a wide array of coffee blends in capsules compatible with the Pixie machines. In less than half a minute, your single-serve espresso will be brewed to your liking. With automatic volume control and an adjustable cup holder, you are truly in full control of your espresso’s preparation.
One outstanding feature notable in all Nespresso products is durability, and the Pixie is no exception. Boasting a durable stainless steel handle, as well as a sturdy, yet attractive plastic siding, the Pixie brings both form and function to the table. This master craftsmanship shines through the product, reassuring you after every use that your machine, as well as your investment with Nespresso, is built to last.
Every facet, from the large 7/10-liter water tank to the folding steel drip tray, has been meticulously assembled in order to provide you with the peace of mind you deserve when enjoying your premium espresso.
Indulging in a warm drink from your Pixie machine entails much more than just drinking it and savoring the flavor. To truly enjoy a Pixie espresso is a mental experience as well. You will no doubt be mentally uplifted to know that Nespresso’s aluminum capsules are infinitely recyclable without sacrificing freshness.
The Pixie also features an energy efficient auto power off mode that goes into effect after nine minutes. This attention to conservation is part of Nespresso’s ongoing commitment to sustainable quality known as Ecolaboration. This effort has made great strides in reducing the carbon footprint of the coffee industry.
The facts are the Pixie’s best features. Nespresso is a top name in home espresso machines. They manufacture the epitome of quality in home brewing. The Pixie is their latest and greatest model. With prestigious style, durability, and efficiency, it is the best choice for quality espressos you can enjoy each and every day. If you invest in the Nespresso Pixie espresso machine expecting the best in the industry, you will not be disappointed.

We're talking about Nespresso's Pixie, which is Nespresso's smallest machine to date. As you can see, it's got this nice little footprint, so you can really find space for this anywhere. Any counter, any size kitchen you are going to have room for it.
You are going to want to leave it out on your counter because it has this nice sleek, modern look. There are six different colors available with these side panels that have a little different textures on them too, so you are going to find a machine that fits in with your décor.
Like all Nespresso machines, it's got 19 bars of pressure, so it's always going to give you a nice rich crème and a really nice espresso coffee. It's got a 30-ounce water tank that just pops up here at the back, so you can easily take it over to your sink to fill it up. It just pops right back on.
The power button is right here on top so it's nice and easy to find, easy to turn on. When you first turn it on, these lights are going to blink while it heats up. We've already had it on, so that's why they're not blinking right now. When they light solid like this then you know it's ready to go.
The Nespresso Pixie has two cup sizes. They come preprogrammed. You can program them yourself to your own liking. There's a small pour, like for a single shot, and there's a long pour if you're doing a long pour coffee like Americano, or maybe for a latte you want more coffee in it, you would use that button.
So to make your cup it's nice and easy. We're just going to pop this up here. We're going to take the capsule that we want; we're going to pop it in the machine. Close it like that. Take your cup. It's going to brew a nice little single shot here. You can see that nice, rich, thick, creamy coffee coming out there. No matter what Nespresso machine you go with, you are always going to get that nice creamy crème on top.
So when we're done we're just going to pull that off, bring this up. That's going to eject our used capsule. You'll see that used capsule comes out here. There's your used capsule container. Nice and easy to clean up. You can just take those capsules right to your recycling bin.
If you want to use a taller cup, like if you are doing an Americano or you are trying to fill a travel mug, this flips up and you can stick your mug in there. So it does accommodate a nice tall cup.
