What customers say about "Key Specs"
Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker Color: Red
  • Quick - Turns on and heats water very fast. Brews fast, too!
  • The quality of the espresso is outstanding. It is flavorful and not bitter -- sometimes the espresso I've had at traditional chain coffee houses has been pretty bitter. I
  • It is quick to start up in the busy morning. No need to wait for the machine to warm up before brewing a coffee.
  • Very Loud! - When the machine is brewing, it is extremely loud. So loud that it wakes up my roommate when I go to use it. Luckily it brews quickly.
  • Water reservoir - The water reservoir is a bit small and needs to be refilled very often, especially if you brew long cups of espresso like me.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machines
  • Coffee is very good and hot, with excellent crema, just like it is with the Citiz.
  • It is just not real espresso. Real espresso has crema, a thick oily layer on top. This is what makes espresso have a kick.
  • Relatively good value/dollar, great tasting espresso, makes an amazing crema, easy to clean and super reliable.
  • Heats up very quickly, i.e. making coffee is quite fast.
  • Smaller water reservoir means frequent refilling.
  • The only downside is the small water tank, but what do you expect with something so compact? Great for a small apartment.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker Color: Red
  • Compact - The machine is very small and compact. Barely takes up any space on my little kitchen coffee table.
  • Durable - At least on the outside the machine is very well built and seems durable. The feel of the appliance is very solid. The handle is also made of metal.
  • Takes up very little counterspace. Easy to storage.
  • Fit and trim at about 5" wide and 13" deep, I was able to easily find space on my counter by putting a French press under the counter to make room for the Inissia. I keep the frother on a shelf.
  • It is tiny and takes very little counter space. It replaces a machine that used K-cups which was absolutely huge and I was happy to get rid of it.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machines
  • Small footprint makes this machine well suited for smaller kitchens that don't have a lot of counter space.
  • It's very compact -- takes up little space on the countertop.
  • This is a beatifully designed compact brewer that produces a wonderful espresso. It reaches temperature incredibly fast and takes up very little space.
  • This device is incredibly compact and easy to clean.
  • I love this machine! I love the compact design and it seems very well made.

What customers say about "Controls"
Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker Color: Red
  • Coffee selection - There are a ton of different flavours and brew variations for a perfect cup. The machine comes with the standard small or large brew buttons but also allows you to program your own brew length.
  • You can adjust how much water you want in your espresso/lungo.
  • Very easy to operate since everything is controlled with just 2 buttons at the top of the machine.
  • The operation is very simple. You add milk to the fill line, put the lid on top, and press the button. After that it silently warms and froths the milk and in not a lot of time either.
  • A really good little machine, for the money. Easy to operate from the get-go. Heats up very fast, and you get a perfectly measured short or lungo shot with a thick creamy layer of crema.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machines
  • Simple, easy, two buttons large and small espresso.
  • Coffee is very good and hot, with excellent crema, just like it is with the Citiz.
  • Very flexible in the quantity that you can control. From a small cup to a bit larger.
  • It is easy to set up, easy to operate, fill and clean.
  • Compact, easy to operate, quick start up (less than 25 seconds for a cup of espresso, little to no maintenance, sleek.

What customers say about "Features"
Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker Color: Red
  • Comes with a nice variety pack of pods.
  • Many varieties of coffee available for the unit.
  • The milk frother could not be easier to use and produced excellent froth/warm milk for a capp.
  • Minimal cleaning (just dump out the container with empty pods when it's full - holds about 10 pods - and rinse it out).
  • Does not make regular american-style coffee, a bit noisy.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machines
  • I love that there are so many different coffee companies that make pods, including some of the best Italian coffees, like Kimbo and Vergnano.
  • The machine is very elegantly designed and it has great features like the auto shut off which comes in handy for me cause I get a bit forgetful.
  • Capsules are a little expensive (but worth every cent).
  • Reservoir is more difficult to remove than on the Citiz. It clicks into the machine at the top via two plastic 'hooks' which only retract when one opens the reservoir's hinged lid.
