If you’re tired of searching for the best barista in town to create your perfect cup of coffee and would love to have one at home to get you through the school run, then maybe it’s time you became the barista instead!

For flawless coffee you can make in the comfort of your own home, you can’t look past the Nespresso Breville Pixie machine.

Easy to use and delightfully styled, this piece of kitchenware will make entertaining a breeze – and will get your mornings off to an excellent caffeinated start delivering everything you need in one compact unit

The Nespresso BEC400XS Breville Pixie Capsule Machine is fully equipped with all the necessary features, and will make cafe-style coffee an achievable goal at home. Nespresso’s own 19 bar extraction system will ensure premium cups of coffee, any time you want.

With a 30 second heat up time, you’ll be serving coffee and cake in no time! The thermoblock heating element creates a stable amount of heat, to ensure maximum flavour extraction from your coffee capsules.

And don’t worry about wasted energy either, as the power saver mode will automatically turn the unit off after nine minutes – so if you forget, you don’t have to feel guilty about it.

The added bonus of the included Aeroccino Milk Frother means you can create a large range of coffees, to suit any taste. With preset cup sizes of espresso or lungo, you’ll be able to mix and match to get a wonderful cappuccino in short order.

The Pixie coffee machine was not only made to perform its duties admirably, but also to fit into any home with absolute ease. The stainless steel finish is inspired by modern architecture and metal use in industrial design, and is a stylish addition to any kitchen countertop.

In terms of practicality, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more functional coffee machine. With its small size, this machine is easy to store if you have limited space in the kitchen.

The folding cup holder is designed to suit all cup sizes, and the empty water tank indicator means you’ll never be unprepared. With 700​ ml of water storage capacity, you’ll easily be able to accommodate a group of friends or family without delay.

With all of these stunning features in one compact package, the Nespresso BEC400XS Breville Pixie Capsule Machine retails for around $260 and will make an ideal addition to any kitchen.

Five stars.
