Pixie Power! This startlingly small espresso/coffee maker from Nespresso is so cool, not least because it makes fabulous Nespresso coffee in a small space. The Pixie measures just 4.33" wide, 9.25" tall and 12.83" deep, small enough to fit on most any kitchen counter, or even in a bedroom, office, or, what the heck, a bathroom (how about an espresso when you step out of the shower?) But, despite its size, the Swiss-made Pixie is very serious about coffee, pressure-brewing at 19 bars, the highest pressure of any home espresso machine. You get the finest, crema-topped coffee, just like you do with any Nespresso machine.
The Nespresso system - think of it as combination of hardware (the coffeemaker) and software (the coffee) - is an incredibly easy, mess-free, foolproof, and consistent system for creating luscious, pressure-brewed coffee. No messy coffee grinding, no fussy tamping, no expertise required, all you do is pop a Nespresso coffee capsule into the oh-so-cool Nespresso Pixie, press a button, and out comes the richest, smoothest, crema-topped cup cf coffee you could ever dream of. It's a beautfiful system, one that has, over the last 20-plus years, made believers out of more than 8 million coffee lovers worldwide..
The beautifully-designed Nespresso Pixie coffeemaker is a little work of art, containing a thermoblock heating system that takes just 25-30 seconds to come up to brewing temperature and an auto-shut off that powers off the machine after nine minutes to conserve energy. Coffee making is controlled by just two push-buttons, one for a short shot of espresso, another for a larger, lungo coffee. Both buttons can be set for your desired coffee volume. Two back-lit LEDs tell you if the easily removable, 24-oz. water tank at the back of the machine is full or needs filling. The pull-out catch tray holds up to ten used coffee capsules and convenient cable storage helps keep your counter uncluttered. It's all backed by a one-year warranty.
Next, the software. As impressive as the machine is, the coffee is where Nespresso excels. Nespresso's coffee experts roast and blend 16 premium coffees, all from rigorously-selected, top-grade beans. 7 are espressos, with a wide range of flavor profiles, designed to be made in small cups. 3 more espressos are "pure origin" espressos, reflecting distinct regional characteristics. Another 3 are what Nespresso calls "Lungos", coffees roasted and blended specifically to be brewed in larger 4-oz. quantities. Finally, there are 2 natural-process decaf coffees. All Nespresso's coffee beans are grown in cooperation with the Rain Forest Alliance as part of Nespresso's AAA Sustainable Quality program which ensures above-market prices paid to small farmers who employ sustainable growing methods. After roasting, each coffee is immediately packed into hermetically-sealed aluminum capsules that lock in the more than 900 coffee flavors and aromas for up to 12 months.
Nespresso coffee is, as they say, not available in any store. Instead, you order your favorite coffee directly from the Nespresso Club
, either on-line or over the phone. The coffee is shipped directly and quickly to your home or office in sleeves of 10 capsules with a minimum order of 5 sleeves. Each sleeve of 10 capsules costs from $5.50 to $6.20.
But wait, there's more. The Pixie does not heat, steam or froth milk; that's part of why it's so compact. So, what to do? The Nespresso Aeroccino
is the answer, a sleek milk frother that both heats and froths milk at the same time. The Aeroccino stands just 6.7" tall and measures 4" in diameter. It will give you up to 4.5 ozs. of hot, frothed milk in just over a minute. Or, it can simply heat the milk without frothing in less than two minutes, or froth only, without heating, in just a minute. It's easy to clean with soap and water and features a removable whisk. Put an Aeroccino together with a Pixie and you'll have the best coffee around, with or without milk.
