Product Description

The art of espresso by Nespresso

More than 20 years ago, Nespresso developed and patented a system for mastering the preparation of the ideal espresso, from the selection of the finest green coffee beans through to the moment of tasting. The optimum espresso is a complex alchemy between coffee of exceptional quality and freshness, and water at high pressure. It is these elements which give the coffee body and intensity, and reveal all the subtleties of the aroma. Coffee, machine and the club are the inseparable components of the exclusive Nespresso experience, which allows you to prepare an ideal espresso, cup after cup, time after time, in the comfort of your own home.

The machine

All Nespresso machines are equipped with a patented extraction system that guarantees up to 19 bar pressure. Each element - water pressure, temperature and extraction duration - has been calculated with great precision. This ensures the aromas from each Grand Cru coffee are expressed, giving the coffee body and creating an exceptionally thick and smooth crema.

The Pixie is a small Nespresso machine, and features a host of innovative and practical features. The Pixie is fast, with a heat up time of only 25-30 seconds, so you can enjoy your Grand Cru coffee without having to wait.

The machine is easy to use and intuitive, featuring water level detection in the one litre removable water tank. Interactive lights can be seen through the capsule container so you know when the water level is low.

The Pixie requires less descaling than ever before and has convenient cable storage. It is also environmentally aware, with recycled aluminium side panels and an energy saving auto power off which activates after nine minutes. In stylish titanium, the Pixie is sure to make a statement in any kitchen.

The coffee

The hermetically-sealed aluminium capsules provide the optimum conditions to preserve and prevent oxidation of the 900 extremely volatile and sensitive aromas found in freshly-ground coffee. Simple in appearance, the capsule is the subject of continual technical improvement to optimise the machine’s extraction of the coffee.

Nespresso offers numerous Grand Cru coffee varieties, some of the finest in the world. Products of Nespresso Coffee Experts’ experience and inspiration, they come from diverse origins and offer a variety of aromas.

To achieve the optimum espresso, Nespresso Coffee Experts travel the world searching for only the finest green coffee beans, which offer the most exciting aromatic profiles. Nespresso then creates a blend from each of the varieties of beans, and develops a specific roasting and grinding profile.

The club

When you buy a Nespresso machine, you become a member of the exclusive Nespresso Club for connoisseurs, where you order your Grand Cru capsules. The club offers you numerous privileges, including personalised contacts with Nespresso and its Coffee Specialists, who understand and appreciate the secrets of coffee.

The club combines exclusive benefits and the expert knowledge and advice of the Specialists with practical services to assist you.

Whether you contact the Coffee Specialists by phone, or in one of Nespresso's boutiques, they can answer all of your questions.

The Assistance Service is exclusive to the Nespresso Club.

The Nespresso commitment to sustainability

Nespresso has a recycling initiative for its capsules as part of a program called Ecolaboration. The Nespresso Ecolaboration program sets out the company's commitment to sustainable development and enables it to make improvements and create initiatives across all its activities.

Firstly I admit it, on most occasions I'm a tea drinker - I've never really been a big coffee drinker as I've never found any variety I really like and previous machines I've used such as a Bosch Tassimo never really produced anything of merit.

I didn't fancy all of the efforts the more expensive specialist machines seem to involve, plus I'm easily swayed by some nice packaging and reviews from my friends so I splashed out £105 on the Krups Nespresso Pixie - in a dashing shade of red - with an extra bonus at the time of £40 cash back to spend in the Nespresso Club. Not a bad deal.

Unusually for an Amazon delivery, this Nespresso didn't arrive in a generic brown box, it arrived in its retail box with my delivery note attached to the side. The box was fairly small but was well packaged. Easy to open, easy to delve into, the Pixie was wrapped carefully and came with a binder of sorts, with a help guide, quick reference menu for the various coffee types, an instruction manual, and quite conveniently a sample package containing one of each of the sixteen `Grand Cru'.

The machine was very straightforward to set up, a simple case of unpack the machine and place it on the kitchen counter, slot the perspex spent coffee pod container into the drip tray, then slide this into the main body of the Pixie. I filled up the water container that sits on the back of the unit - which takes 0.7 litres which isn't masses - but does offer enough for a few cups of coffee, especially if you're fond of espresso! A few quick cycles of the machine washed everything through and I was then ready to test the machine in earnest.

Deciding what coffee you want is the first step that's actually difficult.

Where to start. The Nespresso Pixie by far the best kitchen "Gadget" I have ever bought. I have had coffee machines in the past including Tassimo and Dulce Gusto and the coffee produced has been disspointing to say the least. The quality of the Coffee produced by Nespresso is as good as any I have had from swanky coffee shops (including in Italy!).

Setting the Pixie up is a doddle. From unpacking to being able to enjoy your first cup of coffee will take less than 5 minutes. Operating the device could be done by a 3 year old (if it was safe to let them near hot liquids!). Pop your Nespresso pod in the slot, place your cup under the spout and press either the Espresso or Lungo button and have your tasty cup of coffe produced in a few seconds.

The used pods are stored in the machine (up to ten) so no need to tidy up straight away - just proceed to enjoying a lovely cup of coffee.

You can adjust the volume of coffee produced simply by pressing and holding the relevant button until you have reached the desired fill level. This volume is then remembered by the machine for future use. The standard settings are fine for espresso cups and small coffee cups and operate on a one touch and leave basis.

The range of coffee types produced by Nespresso is quite mind boggling, with 16 different types as standard and special editions released occasionally. The machine came with a stater pack which had one of each of the standard blends. A first from my experiences too, is that even the decaff varieties taste good.

The Pixie is nice and compact so does not take up half your kitchen worktop. There is also an integrated cable tidy to hide away any excess power lead.

Any downsides - only one. The machine is quite noisy, but it is a small price to pay as the noise is the pump which creates the high pressure needed to make the best espresso.

Buy this machine. You will not be dissapointed if you like coffee.

I contemplated this item for a long time, then decided just to go for it. I think it's great and it is really small so looks smashing on the bunker not taking up much room. However, I thought I would point a couple of things out that would have made me buy the Citiz instead.

If I want to use a large mug/glass I can't use just any mug as the flip up part at the bottom is a bit awkward. Sometimes it doesn't fit properly and you have to hold it under whilst it dispenses your coffee. The Citiz seems to have a more practical stand.

The other think worth mentioning is the mechanism for opening/closing it. With the Pixie, the dispensing tube pushes out. This means that if your mug is in place it can push it over, and also means that if you use a small esspresso cup, when the dispensing tube moves, it can dribble down the side of the mug. On the Citiz, the front doesn't move when you move the leve, instead an opening in the top opens without anything else being effected.

Hope this helps a bit for anyone trying to decide between the two. The only other comment would be please, please buy your coffee direct from Nespresso. They have a great service and are much cheaper than others selling it on third hand online or selling inferior coffee in compatable capsules, which are just as, if not more, expensive.

The Nespresso system is an excellent way to get an excellent cup of coffee.
Great tasting, no mess and very fast.
This is better than previous standard machines, warms up faster and has a smaller footprint, and auto off.
You can also move the cup support so that you can use a larger "mug" type cup.
I don't always want an espresso and I therefore top up a larger cup and then add cold milk.
Sometimes using two capsules for the extra strength.I couldn't do that with previous machines easily.
Top tip - if you want a really hot coffee use hot water in the tank and also warm your cup - makes a hell of a difference.
