I have been introduce to the Nespresso coffee when I had the opportunity to review Breville Nespresso Creatista Plus back in October. So I will admit that I was not thinking of getting another Nepresso machine but when the Pixie Espresso Machine was available for review on Amazon Vine Voices, I was curious – could it be that small? After talking with my husband about it, he thought it would be great for our RV since we are limited in space. The box is a bit large but once you open it you can see that it is packed strategically.
When I received the Pixie machine I knew we had made a great choice in selecting this machine to review. The machine is very slim – only 4.33 inches wide which hardly use any space on a counter. You cannot design a coffee machine more compact that this one! The size of it is perfect for small kitchen or an RV! It is also very portable since it weighs only 8 lbs. The coffee machine itself is composed of three main parts – the section that includes the capsule container, the drip tray and its grill, the coffee outlet itself, and the water tank. Fill the tank with water, select one of the Nespresso coffee capsule, and voilà you are ready to make a delicious specialty coffee from the comfort of your home. Two buttons are located on the top of the machine which allow you to select the capacities of the coffee you desire to make – espresso (40ml) or Lungo (110ml). These two capacities can also be reprogrammed to custom volumes. From the first cup of joe you will have with this machine you will be able to smell the beautiful aroma of the coffee capsule during the brewing process.
The container of water in the back of the machine will contain approximately 0.5 liters of liquid.
This specific machine is designed for domestic use only. This means that if you are considering getting this machine for a business you should not purchase it – unless of course that you have a home business.
Another device is included in the box – the milk frother. To froth milk you should use whole or low-fat milk that has been refrigerated. Using it is quite simple – fill the milk frother up to one of the two “max” level, place the lid on the Aeroccino, and press the button to start. You can either have a hot milk froth or a cold milk froth with it. And let me tell you that this makes the best hot chocolate you would drink. Absolutely divine!
If you decide to purchase this coffee machine, you will also receive a Nespresso capsule tasting gift which will introduce you to marvellous flavours of coffee. Nespresso capsules can only be purchased at the Nespresso website or at their stores located in malls throughout the country.
Bottom line, this machine is perfect for small spaces like in our RV or in apartments where you do not have a lot of counter space or in your kitchen if you prefer to have only a small coffee machine (or you are the only one drinking coffee for that matter!). The machine is the perfect size and do not weigh a ton. It is easy to use and will provide delicious drinks with the Aeroccino. You have everything in one box to make fabulous coffees and to simply relax without waiting in line to get your hands on your drink.
The Pixie Espresso Machine with Aeroccino is available for purchase at your favorite store, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
