The details

For fans of espresso, the compact Nespresso Pixie makes for an excellent gift this holiday season. The machine comes with two programmable buttons for espresso and lungo shots and heats up in 25 seconds. 

An Aeroccino milk frother comes in the Amazon bundle and is an ideal add-on to prepare hot or cold milk froth for cappuccino, latte and macchiato coffees in just 60 seconds.

The Nespresso Pixie is a compact coffee maker measuring only 11 cm in width, making it perfect for any kitchen countertop. The set includes a capsule tasting pack so that you can pick and choose your favourite blends.

What people are saying

To date, the Pixie Espresso Machine has earned an average rating of 4.5 stars from Amazon shoppers. Users praise the unit as a "great compact machine" and say it brews "good quality espresso" with a "thick crema."

It's the size of "a small toaster," writes one user. It takes up "so little" counter space. 

Despite its compact size, reviewers say it is "very mighty."

It's a "rock-solid coffee machine," praises one shopper. It "does the job perfectly."

With dozens of five-star reviews behind it, reviewers praise the Nespresso for its blending power, ease of use and say it's easy to clean.

"Buy this thing now," raves another user. It "changed my life."

While reviews for the Nespresso Pixie are overwhelmingly positive, some shoppers note its small pods don't produce a "standard shot [of] espresso."

It's a "tiny pod," one shopper writes. Only "7-8 grams of powder."

Some have also noted the Pixie can be "a little noisy" while brewing.  

The verdict

Ringing in at $210, the Nespresso Pixie makes for a wonderful pint-sized espresso maker for your own kitchen. However, some shoppers note its small quantity of espresso, something to keep in mind if you prefer long shots.
