if you love to indulge in a cup of expresso at home, then you will be glad to know Nespresso has a new line of single cup espresso machine to quench your thirst for caffeine right at your cosy abode. joining the Nespresso collection is Pixie, the smallest Nespresso machine yet that combines a super-compact size with superb espresso making abilities. so why do we need such a small coffee maker? i admit, it’s not a necessity but it could save you some space and let your kitchen looks a whole lot stylish.
the Pixie will churn out one brew at a time. preparing your daily dose of expresso shot is as simple as popping in a Nespresso premium coffee capsule, choose your cup size and the brewing starts automatically. of course, you will have to place the cup there. i don’t need to tell you that, do i? oh, did i mention that it has one of the quickest heat up time of just 25 to 30 seconds in the single cup coffee maker market? that’s awfully important if you are already trembling from the lack of caffeine.
other features include programmable brewing duration, 19-bar pressure pump, Thermoblock technology for precise temperature control, and easy-to-read backlit buttons. despite its small size, the spent capsules receptacle can still hold up to ten used capsules. the Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker retails for $249.95 and is available in six different colors to suit different deco and personal preference.
