I’ve been a fan of Nespresso electric espresso makers ever since I bought the Essenza model several years ago. However, the Pixie, one of their newest products, is even smaller and more compact than the one I own. This slim machine that stands less than 10 inches tall comes in an array of colors, including bright red, electric blue, apple green, and gray. It’s easy to use too. You simply fill a chamber with water, pop in a Nespresso coffee capsule, and pull a lever. In no time at all, you have a delicious cup of espresso ready for sipping. The Nespresso capsules come in a variety of strengths and flavors, including a decaffeinated version.
