Should I buy the Inissia w/ milk frother for $199? Or the Pixie for $249? The Pixie doesn't seem to do much differently, and it's bigger/heavier?
just fwiw if you like milky drinks then do the former. I have a lower-end machine (i think it's the most basic) and for my three-or-so cups a week it works without any hitches. I would imagine the bigger machines are quicker and might have marginal improvements on texture etc but I wouldn't know.
That said... wow, that Milano is good. It's supposed to be a ristretto but as a full espresso it's wonderful. Really well balanced and flavorful, just
gets under the line for too intense for me.
A new limited edition should come early next year the salesman told me.
I also picked up a pod of alternates last week because they were like $4. All the flavors were good but man... they're all kinda watery and not in a good way.
