Gave my sister a pixie as a gift, and have wanted one ever since. I’m cheap, so bought the one that said used. It seemed brand new out of the box, and works great. Love trying all the different flavors.
I shopped everywhere, and amazan had the best price by far. The delivery was very prompt. I gave this as a gift and was proud to do so. He was thrilled with the nespresso, and i was thrilled with the price.
Easy to operate, easy to clean. Nespresso, by far, has the best espresso flavors in a pod on the market today. In fact, the espresso from this machine is far better than starbucks fresh brewed espresso and rivals that of my favorite italian cafe. Can’t go wrong with this machine.
This was a birthday gift for my brother and he loves it. The colour is neutral and will look great in any kitchen and he loves how easy it is to use.

What can i say other than i love my little espresso maker. This little machine make espresso as good as any i’ve ever had. It heats up very fast maybe 25 sec. And makes the coffee in about 25 sec. No mess, easy to use and great espresso. I personally prefer the 8 to 10 rated coffees, but i do like a strong shot of espresso with it’s wonderful creama. If you’re like me and don’t want to leave your house everyday for a terrific cup of “joe” then get your self a “nespresso pixie” it’s great fun.
Excellent product if you want a expresso machine for office or home this one is the perfect choice and the taste of the capsules are so good.
Larger coffee cups won’t fit.
I purchased the nespresso pixie machine because i didn’t want to spend a mint in order to be able to enjoy a cup of espresso and i don’t drink coffee that much. I found that going to a coffee shop to pay $3-5 a cup just didn’t sit well with me. Also, i don’t have a lot of counter space so having a nice small machine works well. The nespresso machines are pretty much very easy to use and keep clean. The machine seems quite sturdy but have to say that sometimes it is a bit of a struggle to get the water reservoir off to re-fill. I got so annoyed that now i just fill an oversized cup and re-fill the reservoir that way. I took one star off because of this and because the little machine is very noisy when in use. The really nice thing is in your shipment with the nespresso pixie there is a variety pack that comes with a little book to explain each variety and its intensity which i found very helpful as i tasted my way through each one. My favorite is the livanto which has a six intensity and and evokes the scent of freshly roasted coffee which i absolutely love.The company has a very good customer service as within about a week i got a call from the company asking me how i was liking the machine and if i had any questions or concerns.
Purchased this coffee maker after having tried it in italy and decided to buy it here in the u. We absolutely love it, it is easy to use, compact and the espresso tastes delicious. Would definitely reccomend it.
Easy to use, minimal cleaning, great espresso. The only drawback is that you can’t buy the espresso capsules in a store, you have to order them on line. But i got use to that as well. I just did not like that initially.
Makes great coffee and simple to operate coffee machine.
This is a great little machine. Makes a great coffee (i use only espresson pods) in about 2 min from start to sip.
The espresso is very good quality. If you have experience with a keurig, it’s similar, but smaller. We love ittip: buy your espresso cups from the actual website.
I was concerned after reading reviews about leaking units, but we’ve been using it at least once a day for a month now with no problems at all. Our old drip coffee maker has not been used once since we got the nespresso.
It’s been about two months, i hate writing rewiews as soon as i get something. I want to give it some use before i write about it. We’ve used this unit at least 1-4 times a day. I particularly like the lungo feature as i’m more of a volume drinker. Partner likes the espresso feature. Personally, i use the espresso cups for my lungos and they’re totally fine. We’ve taken it on several trips so we don’t have to drink hotel coffee. Quick operation: i can turn it on and easily within a minute (and that’s pushing it) it’s ready to go. Automatic shut off: after nine minutes the unit automatically shuts off. When you’re rushing out the door for work, the last thing you want is “did i turn it off”.
It works great, the autopower off function is very convenient. We enjoy delicious expresso drinks every day. We got the aeroccino plus milk frother too.
I was a die-hard fan of the stove-top espresso pot for many years and resisted purchasing the pixie because i thought it might be a mess to use and clean ( i received a krups espresso machine many years ago as a gift, and used it only a couple of times-it was such a project to use and the espresso it made was nothing to write home about). I spent a week with my cousin, who happened to have the pixie and i was hooked. The espresso is fantastic, just as good/better than the expensive coffee shops. I love the compact size of the machine and the ease of use- i took it out of the box, rinsed as directed and had wonderful espresso within 20 minutes of receiving it. I hope to have many years of use.
Great little machine-has performed as advertised so far and seems to be very well made.
Wow, a friend demonstrated her pixie to me and i was sold. This makes a great expresso and i am so happy with it. It is slightly noisy for about 10-15 seconds but all coffee makers are. The hot water is ready in about 15 seconds and you have a great drink in 20 seconds. It is a handsome machine, takes very little counter space and was a bargain. I have wanted my own machine for many years and this is perfect.
So happy with this espresso maker.
I first saw these in action in austria. By no means i am a professional coffee drinker, but i can tell the difference between the 7-11, dd and starbucks coffee. The unit is absolutely delightful and classy. It is easy to work with and very hassle free. The coffee/espresso is brewed to perfection and the price beats a regular brew from anywhere. For ~60c a cup (if you drink a lot of coffee in a given day) it pays itself off. I am very happy with the unit and the variety of the coffee selection. One nice thing is that at night after dinner when you want a cup, depending on who is in the house people are always divided between the de-caf and caf. With this machine you don’t need to brew twice and there is no coffee wasted at the end. Also, for those who don’t like their coffee too strong, you can dilute it by running the machine twice.
Love it but it does continue with small drips after turning off.
