She liked the look of the DeLonghi Citiz better. What makes you say that the Pixie is more energy efficient? They both say 1260 W, couldn't find info beyond that. I'd guess that the components are pretty simlar. Descaling isn't that much of an issue since the water is relatively soft (around 10°dH).
Anyway, tried a bunch of the coffees (and now have tummyache). Decided to get these: 3x Cubania--blind buy, I hope the robusta isn't too strong--, 2x Ristretto/Arpeggio/Roma/Bukeeta ka/Dharkan, 1x Fortissio Lungo and Caramelito & ciocattino for the lulz. And got an Aeroccino3 on top (current "cashback" offer).
