From the manufacturer
Thanks to its compact dimensions, the Pixie coffee maker fits in any kitchen and is available in a wide range of colors and 2 finishes. Only 11 cm wide, it uses hardly any space and is perfect for smaller urban kitchens.
Espresso and Lungo
The one-touch buttons with two cup capacities (Espresso and Lungo) can be reprogrammed to custom volumes and are backlit for ease of use. The folding drip tray accommodates differing cup sizes for espresso and milk coffee lovers alike.
High pressure pump
The 19 bar high-pressure pump allows for a barista-style result, unlocking the delicate flavor and premium aromas of each coffee capsule during the brewing process and creating an incomparably dense and unctuous crema. The fast heat-up system reaches the ideal temperature in just 25 seconds.
Empty water tank alert
Red backlights along the sides of the machine light up to alert you when you need to refill the water tank. With the automatic power-off function, the machine turns off 9 minutes after the last use, consuming less energy.

I've always heard that pulling a great shot of espresso requires a commitment. A commitment that requires the proper equipment, skill, and freshly roasted beans. A good espresso machine is not inexpensive. And they typically must be pre-heated for twenty to thirty minutes. You'll also need a decent (not cheap) grinder, to grind the beans to the proper consistency. And you'll need a tamper, to tamp the ground coffee in the Portafilter with just the right amount of pressure. And, of course, you'll need to practice and spend some time to "get to know" your new equipment. When all of these factors come together, and the moon is in the right phase, I'm told that you just might be able to pull a decent shot...someday.
No problem. I am not deterred. I'm willing to spend the money for decent equipment. And I'm also willing to go through whatever ritual is necessary to make a really good shot of espresso in my own home. But what about those capsule-based espresso machines? Can they rival a "real" espresso machine? Can they really produce the flavor, aroma, and crema necessary for a good shot of espresso? I had to find out.
I've had espresso at Starbucks (it's OK), and some local coffee houses and restaurants (everything from terrible to very good). And I recently had a shot from a local company that does nothing but roast coffee. They were kind enough to make me an espresso on the machine they have for their employees (a Simonelli espresso machine, costing thousands of dollars). They pulled me a shot from beans they'd roasted the day before. Then they ground them in a high-dollar grinder right before my eyes. The result? A great shot of espresso, with all the flavor, aroma, and crema that one would expect. Surely, I thought, no capsule-based system could compete.
I live in Dallas, TX. And Dallas currently has the only Nespresso store in the state. I went there not expecting to be impressed. I was wrong. I sampled three different varieties. And guess what? I like the Nespresso "Kazaar" and "Ristretto" better than any espresso I've ever had. I also discovered that the Nespresso system doesn't simply pour hot water over the coffee in the capsule. Their machines have an internal pump that forces hot water under pressure into the capsule, much in the same way that hot water is forced into the Portafilter on a "real" espresso machine.
That settled it. I made the decision to purchase a Pixie. In fact, I purchased two. This machine appears to be well built. And it's made in Switzerland, not China. As far as I'm concerned, the Nespresso pixie IS a "real" espresso machine. It's just a lot more convenient. The warmup time is only about half a minute. And it's very easy to use. All you have to do is add water, insert and lock the capsule of your choice, and press the button. Out comes espresso that's as good or better than anything I've had in coffee shops and restaurants.
Still, I know that some espresso purists will scoff. Where's the ritual? Where's the skill? Where's the control? As I mentioned earlier in this review, I'd be willing to invest the time and money in traditional equipment if it produced a better result. Granted, I haven't tried every type of bean in combination with every type of espresso machine and grinder on the planet. Who knows? Maybe there's a "God Shot" out there somewhere that'll make me dump the Pixie in the trash. Until then, I'm happy to enjoy great espresso...regardless of what phase the moon is in.
1. Use good water. We have filtered water available through our kitchen taps, but a Brita would work fine also. Water type makes a huge difference.
2. Find a coffee type you like. Fortunately, Nespresso sent a good selection with this order, including little leaflets about the various types of coffee they offer as well as a handy notes area to keep track. I'm trying several other coffee pods as well, including the highly rated Bestpresso.
3. Let it warm up for a bit of extra time.
4. When they say a pod is good only for espresso sized, don't be afraid to try it for the lungo (larger) setting. You'd be surprised how many of these taste better with a bit more hot water in them, and lose bitterness to boot.
Makes nice crema. Of course it's not as good as the thousand and two thousand dollar machines - but I didn't expect it to be!
Great for travelling, too. I have a large shoulder bag and put the Pixie in, with two cups and an assortment of pods, and I'm a happy camper!
So far, I love this machine! It's sleek and small so it doesn't take up much space. It brews quickly and isn't too loud. I'm still deciding what "flavor" of pod I like the best. I'm a fan of the dark, syrupy ones so far.
I'm glad I bought the Pixie instead of the Inissia although I'm sure that machine is well made, too. It just depends on what you want and whether you're the type of person who will eventually upgrade. I am, so I figured I'd do it sooner rather than later.
