NESPRESSO launches PIXIE to New Zealand

Introducing the smallest and most innovative coffee machine
NESPRESSO launches PIXIE to New Zealand

Good things come in small packages and with the launch of the smart, fast and intuitive new Nespresso PIXIE machine, making the perfect cup of coffee just became a whole lot easier.

The pioneers of premium portioned coffee, Nespresso has revolutionised the way people around the globe enjoy coffee both at home and in some of the finest restaurants in the world, with renowned chefs such as Georges Blanc, Heston Blumenthal, Juan Mari Arzak and Shannon Bennett serving Nespresso.

With PIXIE, Nespresso has taken its constant drive for innovation a step further by developing miniaturised technology to create the smartest and smallest machine ever.

PIXIE enables coffee lovers to minimise time, space and energy consumption while still creating the perfect cup of coffee.

Smart and intuitive, PIXIE heats up in less than 30 seconds and automatically powers off after nine minutes of inactivity, making it Nespresso’s eco-friendliest machine. PIXIE will also tell you that it’s ready to brew or when the water tank needs filling thanks to colour changing backlights, perfectly integrated into a sleek and industrial style design.

The unique Nespresso system was developed with a singular focus of delivering the ultimate coffee experience, cup after cup. A complex process between the machine and the capsule (which contains a perfect portion of coffee) enables every variable to be controlled creating the perfect cup very time.

The Nespresso Grand Cru coffees, contained in different coloured capsules, are a selection of exquisite blends and pure, single origin coffees, specially developed to suit every taste preference.

For coffee connoisseurs worldwide, PIXIE features two programmable cup size buttons todeliver the perfect serving size of an Espresso or Lungo coffee and also comes with an Aeroccino milk frothing device to create delicious milk coffee for latte and cappuccino lovers.

Available nationwide from April 2011 PIXIE is the small machine that is big news.
