Contata and Kaldi Single Serve Coffee, Tea, and Espresso Machines from CBTL


contata_black_Large_kaldi_blue.jpg

We recently received the Kalda single serve coffee, tea, and espresso machine from CBTL, but wanted to also tell you about the Contata machine that is a bit more compact and a bit different in the aesthetic design than Kaldi.

What's interesting is the the color difference and how the Contata which is only 1 inch less deep really does look different. Also if you prefer black over a bright blue coffee, tea, and espresso machine on your counter the Contata may be for you. The Contata is also $20 cheaper at $129 versus the Kaldi for $149.

Whichever you choose they both have the full feature set below. Personally we like the Kaldi because it's just so bright and round, and we do like the Contata but that sleek black smaller design is currently filled by our Nespresso Essenza.

Both the Kaldi and the Contata Single Serve Coffee, Tea, and Espresso Machines feature:

  • automatic proportioning
  • accommodates variety of cup sizes
  • easy capsule insertion & automatic ejection
  • used capsule drawer holds 10 spent capsules
  • removable water tank capacity
  • electronic temperature control
  • energy saving function
  • maximum pump pressure 15 bar
  • diagnostic lights

Two advantages of the Contata over the Kaldi that I found are that the spout is variably adjustable and that the drip tray is a wider flat surface and so suitable to a broad variety of cups.
