I'll be the first to admit *deep breath* I don't like coffee, it tastes terrible, it stinks (and coffee breath? damn), and overall just so overrated but here I am praising this espresso machine because this is the first time I found myself enjoying coffee! As an espresso maker it comes with 2 buttons that dictates not just size of the serving but also type (certain pods are made for a smaller size while others for the larger) but I find myself turning my favorite flavors (hello, Vanillo!) into an easy cappuccino with 3 servings of the larger size in a 16 oz cup over frothed 10% and sugar for a total prep time of under 5 minutes. The machine isn't perfect for instance it's loud, much louder than most coffee machines that I've tried so if you're the only early riser in your house like me (5 am vs. 8 am) then prepare to wake everyone. It has been 3 years since I bought my first Nespresso Pixie and it's just now starting to have problems (becoming much louder) though still the espresso is fantastic is ever, I'm planning on replacing mine soon with another Nespresso machine (this time the Innisa) and would recommend this to everyone!
