Joined the dark side and got the Nespresso Pixie (Electric Red)! The recommended retail price (RRP) is S$398 but thanks to a friend who is working in Nestle, I managed to get it at staff price!
The machine is Made in Switzerland (NOT China) and I like how they have a handle together with the box for you to carry it easily! The box includes 16 capsules. You can shop for more capsules over at their online store, Club Nespresso, or using their Nespresso iPhone App. There are 3 prices for their capsules. Prices below are for each capsule:
- Pure Origin – S$1.07
- The Espresso range – S$0.91
- The Lungo range – S$0.99
You need to buy a minimum of 50 capsules in total each time you purchase for packaging reasons (you can mix and match). For orders above 150 capsules, delivery is free within 2 business days and for orders below that, the delivery charge is S$10.
I am a coffee person but I am not that well versed with coffee, for me the taste is pretty similar to what you get in Starbucks but for just 1/5 of the price.
