Nespresso has taken the idea that smaller is always better. What Nespresso is calling a miniature version from its first round of popular Nespressos, the Pixie sits nine inches tall and allows you to fit cups for your favorite type of caffeinated drinks — espresso, lungo, lattes, macchiatos — to fit underneath its spout. Not only small but energy saving too, this machine will switch off after nine minutes, has a 40 percent lower power consumption than other machines and its heating time has been reduced to 25 seconds.

Submit a question directly to owners of this product and ask what they think about it!
Do the Nespresso machines come with coffee pods ?
Which seems to be the best in value, the Pixie or the U ?
Thanks Jul 3, 2013
1) For a 16 oz latte, will I have to use 2 capsules?
2) Is it known when Nespresso's patent on their capsules expires, thus allowing for more competition and probable lowering of capsule prices?
3) How does the quality of the espresso produced compare to the lower end Saeco superautomatics (Xsmall, Vienna plus, odea)
Thank you in advance!! May 27, 2013

I have never had a kitchen appliance that made me so happy. There is no learning curve to this machine. It's fully automatic, meaning you make great espresso from the start. Pair it with the milk frother and you need no more tools. I pondered this purchase for a few years and wish I had made it sooner. Purchasing the capsules was my point of hesitation. However, the variety and flavor of Nespresso coffee is outstanding, and I have long been a whole-bean coffee geek. The Pixie is super fast; it takes only seconds to warm up, and it's putting out coffee at the press of a button. I have never experienced faster, more effortless coffee making with such outstanding results. It's brilliant.
