Nespresso Pixie and Aeroccino Milk Frother Giveaway! - CLOSED

One of my favorite things I received this holiday was a Nespresso Pixie Machine and the mighty Aeroccino Milk Frother.  The Pixie is compact, handsomely designed, and it makes damn good coffee in a hurry.


Confession, I'm terrible at making coffee (ok, I'm actually terrified of making coffee).  But when the Pixie arrived on my doorstep, all my fears suddenly became a thing of the past.  I can make my own delicious coffee in under a minute, and in another minute the Aeroccino froths milk for a perfect cappuccino!  Take that Starbucks! 

There are so many other things I love about this machine: the beautiful and playful colored coffee pods, the water heats up insanely fast (which is fantastic at 6:30 am when I'm running out the door to hit the gym), and when I inevitably forget to turn it off, it automatically powers off after 9 minutes.  Swoon.  

It's fair to say I'm in love with this little machine.


Dear readers, I have some terrific news for you.  I have a machine for you, yes you. One lucky winner will win the full set up, a Nespresso Pixie in Aluminum and the Aeroccino+ Milk Frother!  Cure your holiday spending hangover with a buzzy treat for yourself

  1. Uhm, this is a great giveaway. That Milk Frother has been on my 'kitchen wishlist' for a while!


    My favorite way to have coffee? With a dash of cream in a mug that fills my palm like a hug.

  3. As God made it: no additions. But maybe, if it's a particularly good espresso, a twist of lemon rind.

  10. To be quite honest, I am not picky. I will drink a large coffee from a gas station with all kinds of fake flavoring and fake cream on a road trip. I drink black coffee from my family's constantly-brewing pot when I'm home (they were farmers, there's always a pot brewing). I will drink decaf. I will drink lattefrappucinomochabursts with extra foam and a leaf drizzled on top.


    I've had so much in my lifetime that I can discern the good ones, like a fine wine. But in the end, I only ask for coffee. That's good enough for me.

  17. I like my coffee black. Some of my favorite times to drink coffee are summer mornings on my front porch and while backpacking.

  18. I’d always mixed coconut oil into my coffee or tea to help get my 1/4 cup a day, though it always floated on the top and the texture was sometimes rough. Basically, I blend coconut oil and grassfed organic unsalted butter into coffee with a dash of vanilla and sometimes a drop of stevia. The blender emulsifies the coconut oil and butter so the texture is more creamy than oily and it is a delicious way to get a boost of beneficial fats. This type of coffee also gives much more extended energy throughout the day without making me jittery.

  38. I don't have an espresso machine, but if I did, I'd make a cappuccino with extra foam and a little Ceylon cinnamon sprinkled on top. And for an extra fancy touch, I'd add my homemade mexican vanilla. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I like to drink my coffee: often, and with a little whole milk, frothed, streamed, or straight up.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love cold brew coffee most of the year and Americanos in the dead of winter.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm a creature of habit, and rarely deviate from my usual espresso
    topped with froth and a sprinkle (just a tad) of cinnamon. When weather
    is warmer, I enjoy my macchiatos on the fire escape and start the day off on a warm note.

    ReplyDelete
