Nespresso Pixie Smartens Espresso

On this overcast, rainy Spring morning, there’s nothing better than a cup of coffee. But, to make the morning POSH, why not enjoy an espresso drink? Meet the Nespresso Pixie: an eye-catching single-cup machine that combines a super-compact silhouette with superb espresso-making abilities.

This stylish little dynamo adds impact to your kitchen with its sleek, urban design. Brewing is fully automatic – simply pop in a coffee capsule and select your cup size. It works exclusively with Nespresso’s Grands Crus coffee capsules (16 are included) for locked-in freshness and convenience with no mess. Simply, heat it up in 25 to 30 seconds. Select one of the two top buttons, shot size of 1-oz pour or 3-oz pour. Spent capsules are neatly ejected into an internal receptacle that holds up to 10 used capsules. Removable water tank is easy to fill with preferably FILTERED water for the best tasting espresso.

I have two concerns about the Pixie. First, I wish that I could control the temperature. I like my coffee steaming hot. Confession: it is because I like to sip and enjoy my coffee, and my cup seemed to get cold quickly. Next is the capsules. They are color-coded to determine which flavor is in each capsule. My husband is color-blind and could not differentiate which one was which.

The Grands Crus coffee are ALL delicious. It has an amazing crema with EVERY cup. The Nespresso Pixie is a great espresso maker, especially for the POSH moms in your life. Hint, hint: Mother’s Day is less than a month away. It’s not only great for her morning pick-me-up, but also for a post-dinner party espresso to serve with dessert.

Disclosure: I was given the Pixie by Nespresso USA. My opinions are my own.
