Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker Review
An elegant bold cup of Joe is right around the corner when you use the Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker. This is one of their best models made with high grade materials. On top of that it makes drinks insanely quickly too. It’s 100% programmable so you can make drinks in just a few quick steps and have them brew any time of the day. It also comes with a removable water tank, backlink indication system, and much more to make the coffee making process virtually effortless. Even better is that you can get a hold of one of these for an insanely low price compared to other similar espresso machines.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker – Features
Quality Build – Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker comes in two general builds; aluminum or titanium. This model (the c60) is the titanium one, so you’re getting a pretty high quality machine here. It’s a nice compact sized appliance that weighs just over 6 pounds and is the perfect size for counter tops, and can be easily stored anywhere. It’s just under 10 inches in height just to give you can idea.
Water Tank – The Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker comes with a removable water tank, which is an extremely convenient feature to have these days. This makes filling it up and cleaning it a really simple process. It’s a clear tank so you’ll be able to know just exactly how much water you have left each time you use it. It holds 24 ounces which is not the biggest; but should be plenty enough for an entire family. And, since you’ll find this makes drinks quite fast the need to refill won’t be noticeable. There’s even a nifty feature that will alert you when the water tank is empty too!
Basic Brewing – The really awesome feature with the c60 model is the programmable options it comes with. You can set up your espresso to be made at any time of the day; and there’s also plenty of pre-programmed drink combinations in this unit as well. Those include both espresso and stretched variations such as lungo. Whether you want a large cup of Joe or not, this machine will easily brew in a variety of common cup sizes. Ristretto and basic Coffee are also available brew sizes to choose from!
It’s got speed – In general the Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker is considered to be their fastest machine that they have. It only takes about 25 seconds to heat up drinks.
Saves Energy – Are you one of those folks who forgets to shut off the coffee maker when you’re not using it? If so then this appliance is going to save you tons of money. It has somewhat of a built in safety feature as it automatically shuts off after 9 minutes.
What about the d60? – This is a question many people have, and it’s easy to understand since the d60 looks nearly identical to the c60 models. When comparing the Nespresso c60 vs d60 you’re not getting much of an overall difference. They really do look the same, although some various changes as far as color selection and ribbed sides against solid sides. The aluminum model has the smooth side and the titanium model (the one we reviewed) has the ribbed body. The weight is the same, From a technological standpoint they are basically the same and function the same way. We personally like the look and feel of the c60 and it also runs a bit cheaper too.
There’s really no negative that we can even begin to attach to the Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker. The drinks are beyond excellent with just the right amount of cream on top of each espresso. Cleaning and maintenance are also a breeze, and the quality of the machine is excellent. Considering how fast it heats up and brews; this is an excellent option for those on the go and for entertaining guests as well.
