Nespresso Espresso Machine: Nespresso D60 Pixie Dark Red Espresso Machine With Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother Reviews
Surprisingly great… (By Amos)
So I am a bit of a coffee snob…
I like to grind my own beans, love my french press and for the most part have despised pods/capsules. I spent a pretty penny on a good espresso maker that when tuned up and in perfect balance, can generate as good an espresso shot as any, but honestly, its a pain in the ass.
If there are any audiophiles out there reading, I would liken this purist struggle for consistently great coffee to that of the appreciation of an old tube amp. You love the way it sounds when all the tubes are good and perfectly matched with the correct speakers, interconnects and cables; but DAMN is it a pain to keep it all tuned up! Sometimes you just want to sit back, relax and just enjoy some music.
That is kind of how I feel about this Pixie.. I mean, it just brews a great shot of espresso. There is no messing with the tamper or grinder assembly, and no constant search for the perfect grind. My wife is in love with the Aeroccino frother that came with the bundle. And any smart husband knows that when “She happy, we happy”.. 🙂
Its also very easy to use so you don’t have to graduate from barista school to get results. You just drop a pod in the machine, some milk in the frother, press a button on each and wait. A minute later, you can just enjoy a very nice latte or espresso.
Perhaps its not quite the 3k or 10k espresso machine equivalent but to be honest, I don’t taste a $9,750 dollar difference. I have not had it long so I may update my review over time but I have to say that I am pretty impressed. So much so that I ordered the INISSIA (basically the same machine without the lights for $100 bucks) for my office.
For the $, pretty freakin impressed!
Best Buy I ever made (By Tina Napora)
Whats not to love about the Nespresso Pixie and Milk Frother.
One of the best buys I ever made. It is compact and does all of the things the large expensive machines can do
Arrived with various parts damaged (By Amazon Customer)
The product arrived with damaged parts.
The drip grid is a coated white and not stainless steel as depicted in all photos showing this Pixie model. It is also chipped.
One of the water tank hooks that connect the tank to the coffee machine is broken off.
The 16 capsule box contain 5 capsules that are completely dented and cannot be used. However the transparent plastic packaging that all 16 capsules are contained in is not damaged, which leaves us to assume that the capsules were already dented before being placed in their container!
Some of the cardboard parts used to protect the product within its packaging are also damaged.
This is unacceptable and hugely disappointing as it clearly seems these damages existed prior to placing the product in its packaging!
Espresso in my kitchen (By Joan P. Libby)
Excellent speedy espresso brewer. Tasty options – both caffeinated and decaf choices in varying intensities are available. The milk frother adds to the positive taste experience.
