"Nespresso have upgraded their top-quality coffee machines with their new Pixie espresso machine."
If you’re looking for a coffee machine which produces commercial quality coffee, you should consider the Nespresso Pixie. Not only does the Pixie use a 19-bar pressure to produce perfect flavor and crema on your coffee, it also does so without needing anything more than the push of a button. And at the price of $180-$230, you’re saving even more money by creating top-quality coffee, quickly and easily in the comfort of your own home.
Nespresso have upgraded their top-quality coffee machines with their new Pixie espresso machine. The first thing you notice on this device compared to its predecessors is the steel side panels. Not only does this give the Nespresso Pixie a sleek, black and steel finish, it also improves the overall build quality of the device. Using steel instead of plastic improves durability, meaning it will last longer before you need to replace it. You’ll be saving money as a result of this, as well as by making professional level coffees from the comfort of your own home. The look of the Pixie is more advanced and stylish, giving it an up-market look. It would certainly suit any modern kitchen. The added benefit of only being 11cm wide means it hardly takes up any room on your kitchen countertop too.
The Pixie espresso maker has the Nespresso famous 19-bar pump pressure. This means top-quality extraction and flavor from the coffee, as well as beautiful crema consistency. Furthermore, it also ensures that an enticing coffee aroma will be released, which is always a welcome feature. The Nespresso Pixie is a brilliant way of achieving a professional standard of coffee for a fraction of the price. A 19-bar pump pressure does create significant noise, but Nespresso are gradually reducing this with every coffee machine they bring out.
This great value coffee machine uses Nespresso’s impressive range of Grands Crus capsules which are slightly larger than usual, giving either a 2.7oz espresso or a 5oz lungo. This is great if you prefer a bit more volume to your coffee. You even get 14 free capsules to try when you buy a Nespresso Pixie. The buttons used for these options are also programmable however, so you can adjust the volumes to your own taste too. One great feature of Nespresso coffee machines is the fact you can activate a cycle without a capsule, to create enough hot water to make an Americano. If you wanted to make a latte or cappuccino however, you would need to purchase one of their separate milk frothers. These are also a fantastic-quality product; creating perfectly smooth milk and coming in a range of fun colors too. You could even pour your coffee over ice for a cooler beverage.
Ease of Use
The Nespresso Pixie has been designed to make creating commercial standard coffee, easy. There are three simple buttons, one for activating the water boiler, one for an espresso shot and one for a lungo shot. It couldn’t get much simpler than that. There is an integrated water reservoir which holds up to 24oz of water. This a great time-saving device as it stops you from having to run back and forth to top it up between cycles. One feature that has been introduced with the Pixie coffee machine, is a red indicator light. This light is activated when the water tank is running low, saving you from having to manually check it all the time.
Nespresso have also included a handy capsule container which collects empty capsules after use, so you don’t have to run to the bin every time. Some don’t like that the capsule container is an additional part to clean, however, it is worth it for the time you save by using capsules in the first place. A drip tray is another handy feature which has been added, to minimize the mess caused by this great-value coffee machine.
All of the above parts are removable, and although they’re not dishwasher proof, they can be easily rinsed in warm water to clean them. The drip tray can also be removed to make way for larger cups, like a latte cup for example. To clean the whole system, you simply need to run a few lungo cycles without coffee, which will clear out any unwanted residue. Another way in which Nespresso have made sure the Pixie makes life easier for the user, is by using a boiling system that gets water up to temperature in 25 seconds. This is really fast compared to its competitors, making it one of the best coffee machines on the market. This is great if you’re running late. And if you’re in so much of a rush that you forget to turn the machine off, don’t worry; it has an automatic shutoff after 9 minutes of inactivity.
Another way in which using this top-quality coffee machine could help the environment is the fact that the capsules are recyclable. Nespresso even provide recycling bags for your empty capsules, which you can take to a Nespresso store when full, and they’ll recycle them for you. Nespresso are pretty impressive when it comes to customer service. You can even go to them in store for help choosing capsules and for any technical advice you might need, free of charge. The Pixie espresso maker comes with a 2-year warranty, giving you all the reassurance you need that this is a top-quality coffee machine.
The Nespresso Pixie has an upgraded build quality with the inclusion of steel side panels, bringing its durability up to the same impressive standard as its coffee.
