Nespresso Pixie Review
If you are looking for a stylish little espresso machine, then the Nespresso Pixie is what you are looking for. The Nespresso Pixie espresso maker is definitely one that catches your eye. It is very sleek, and comes in a variety of bold colors which include – Aluminum, Indigo, Steel Blue, Electric Titan, and Electric Yellow/Lime.
The Nespresso Pixie is stylish and very compact. It will brew up one cup at a time exclusively using Nespresso coffee capsules. Brewing is simple and automatic, you just put in a coffee capsule, select your size and you are ready to go. It heats up a lot faster than many other single cup models out there today; about 25 – 30 seconds to heat up.
The Nespresso Pixie can be programmed to brew a specific amount of time and has two buttons to select your shot size; a 1 oz. pour or a 2 – 3 oz. pour. The buttons on the espresso machine are backlit, so they are easy to read. The water tank is removable, the drip tray flips up to allow larger cups to be used, used capsules are ejected into a holding container, and it has an automatic shut-off.
Let’s take a look at the features of the Nespresso Pixie:
- Programmable backlit buttons
- Folding drip tray
- Brew ready in 25 – 30 seconds
- Auto power off
- 24 oz. water tank and water level detection
- Used capsule container
- Stylish and ultacompact
- Works exclusively with Nespresso Coffee Capsules
Let’s take a look at what owners of the Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker are saying:

DaveH – Amazon.com User
“…Absolutely delightful coffee. Everyone should have a Pixie.”
Kate – Amazon.com User
“This is the best coffee maker I have ever owned…”
DrGFri – Amazon.com User
Overall the Nespresso Pixie is decent little espresso machine. The only problem I see is that it works exclusively with the Nespresso Coffee Capsules, so it is definitely not for someone who wants to make their own grind. However, if you are looking for a stylish, ultracompact, fast espresso maker, the Nespresso Pixie may just be what you are looking for.
