does this refurbished unit comes with any sample capsules like the new one does, if so, how many?
I have had several Nespresso machines and they are fantastic. You pop in a pod, pull down the lever, and off you go. For a long time, there were no compatible pods made by competitors and you were trapped paying 65 cents a cup, and while Nespresso does a great job of shipping, you wondered if there were alternatives. Well, now there are. But the mainstay of the espresso is the nifty little machine -- takes up almost no counter space, my grandkids love to make coffee, it;s great all the way around....

Looks great. Works great. Easy to use and clean. Best of all it is very fastRead More
First, I must be pleased with the Pixie, because after having it for two weeks, I ordered another! First, it's tiny. Even in our crowded kitchen, we found a place for it without stealing too much counter space. Second: It's fast. Really fast. Turn-on to blank shot to drinkable shot in less than two minutes; not that I time it. If you're new to espresso, this lets you have something beyond brewed coffee without huge expense, and without the disappointment of the swill you get from a $XX big-box "espresso/capuccino" maker. Is the espresso as good as from a high dollar machine with fresh-ground coffee? No. But it's good, it's consistent, and there are a huge variety of Nespresso and Nespresso-compatible capsules out there for it. It lets me add a shot to my morning or evening coffee quickly and relatively inexpensively. The second machine is for the office for the same purpose. There are discussions about compatibility with third-party capsules. I have had no issues with this with the first machine. The supplier in question is working on a fix for their whole line, and the other suppliers I asked have not had issues, but YMMV. Overall, I'm very pleased with this little gem of a machine and with the service provided by Overstock.com.Read More
Love this machine, use it often, friends go crazy over the drinks, really terrific.Read More
The Pixie is great. It makes me smile at how easy it is to use. The average price at around $0.65 per cup isn't bad compared to other machines out there. I wish I had known that there would not be any capsules included with the machine. I would have ordered some. It was a tease to get the machine and have to wait several more days to use it the first time until I got some capsules shipped. Thankful for the Nespresso Boutique in Chicago's Bloomingdale's. I'll be stopping by there to get them from this point on. Glad I took the plunge to get this great product and an Overstock great price.Read More
