Win a Nespresso Pixie Steel Prize Pack!

There is something about starting the morning with a piping hot espresso that just sets me right.  Taking a sip, breaking through the crema to the bitter brew below offers me the jolt that I need to start my day the right way. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to team up with Nespresso USA and, as you might have gathered from my posts, the beauty of my U machine and its incredible ease of use has allowed me to start every morning, no matter how bleary eyed, with my perfect cup.  Now those generous folks over at Nespresso want to hook up one lucky reader of A Boston Food Diary with their own sweet set up!

That's right, one lucky reader will receive the ultimate package from Nespresso- including their
own Pixie Steel machine, and their state of the art Aeroccino Plus machine! So let's talk about these items.  The Pixie Steel is a gorgeous piece to own, sleek in design and with its stainless steel facade its beautiful to look at.  I think though that the real greatness however lies in two of its other features- first is it's size, and the second, of course, is the espresso!  I have a tiny kitchen...let's be frank- I barely have a kitchen- I have a wall with a fridge, an oven and a sink.  However, my U, which is sized very similarly to the Pixie, machine fits right in, taking up only the smallest space on my limited counter space
making it a very welcome addition.  Of course, that wouldn't matter if it never got used- but let me tell you- my machine sees a lot of action.  Nespresso technology doesn't vary- this little house is home to the same engineering that has created cup after cup of perfectly heated, perfectly pressed espresso that we have all come to count on.  Even better though, the Pixie gives its user options.  A simple press of the button allows you to choose between an Espresso- a short pour with a strong flavor, or a Lungo, which will feed more hot water through the capsule allowing for a smoother flavor.  The options are amazing and make it perfect for all day use.

Now, as awesome as the Pixie is on its own, it
becomes infinitely better with the addition of the Aeroccino Plus.  This bad boy froths milk (regular, soy, almond- you name it) into fluffy perfection for hot or cold cappuccinos or lattes!  A little whisk inside determines the tightness of the foam and the button on the outside helps you choose whether your treat will be hot or cold.  Using this with the Pixie basically kills any need to head to that local coffee shop- it's all right in your own kitchen!

I can't lie to you- this is a pretty phenomenal package to received.  To enter please leave me a comment here, on this post telling me why you would love to win the Nespresso Pixie Steel and Aeroccino Plus (and please be a US resident 18 years and older) by July 24, 2013 at 5:00 pm EST, Ill assign each comment a number and have my computer program randomly pick one, then we'll get one shipped out to you!  Please be sure that when you comment you leave a way to get in touch with you as well!

Good luck!

Obviously I would love to have this machine since (as you know) my husband has been jealous of your Nespresso for months!!
Miss you!

Pam said...

I'm always so jealous of your Nespresso tweets!

I find lattes a great way to diet - they feel like a treat, but they're just milk and coffee! Id love to have one of these at home to help me out.

AMAZING giveaway! I am obsessed with my office nespresso machine...unfortunately that means my husband does not get to experience its greatness at home. Having the machine and the foamer at home would be amazing!

I would enjoy winning the Nespresso Pixie Steel and Aeroccino Plus for my son and his future wife. They absolutely appreciate anything that has to do with coffee or caffeine with their crazy lives.

I've been wanting to get Hubby one of these machines, so I'd love to win one from you and Nespresso! He would use it every day.

We have a beast of a Nespresso machine in my office, aptly nicknamed Nessie. She is to big for me to steal so I need my own and this looks just about the absolute perfect size for my little kitchen :) It really is a great giveaway.

I've been drooling at Nespresso machines since I had my first taste at a Nespresso Cafe last summer. I think owning one might make me a morning person. zalo219@yahoo.com

I would love to try to make lattes at home!

Aside from tightening my funds due to just buying a house, I am recently engaged. My fiance (can't get used calling him that!), always uses his parents' Nespresso when we visit them. We'd love to have our own, but as we all know, they're super pricey! If we could win one from your blog, it might be one less thing to add to our future wedding registry!

I love Nespresso coffee, it is my absolute favorite! I often go to our Sur La Table where it's sold just to "sample" it. I have wanted to have one of these machines for so long, but being a stay at home Mom in NYC our budget hasn't allowed for this luxury. I run around after an 11 year old, 2 year old, and 4 month old all day. This would be great to have to keep me going!

I would love to win this for my daughter. She has wanted one for a very long time. She is the biggest coffee addict I know so it would get a lot of use.
