One capsule is all you need to create a single serving to savor. One touch is all it takes to brew fresh espresso, brewed coffee or tea.

Automatic proportioning ensures consistency in taste and aroma. And a unique twin pressure system provides high pressure to capture all the aroma, texture, flavor and great crema of espresso, while gentle pressure allows flavors in coffee and tea to develop naturally and with great balance.
Perfectly sized for a perfect cup- Each capsule contains The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf hand-selected premium coffees and hand-plucked whole leaf teas grown on the world's best coffee and tea estates. To lock in these delicate aroma and flavor characteristics, every serving of espresso, coffee and tea is freshness-sealed.

We're passionate about what we do. It's why we buy only the best quality harvests from small artisan farms and private estates around the world. Why we work directly with our growers to ensure exclusivity. And why we go beyond the plantation with programs that benefit local growers and their communities.
We select the top 1% Arabica beans from Latin America, Asia Pacific and East Africa. Then each batch of espresso and coffee is hand blended and hand-roasted to ensure it's done to perfection.
Cultivated in the world's most exclusive growing regions, our whole-leaf tea is hand-plucked using only the top two leaves and a bud. It's then hand-blended and hand-flavored to ensure the highest quality and consistency.
Sleek design meets vibrant color. With its smooth curves and gleaming metallics, the Kaldi's streamlined looks match its ease of use, and its innovative one touch technology delivers perfection in every cup.
The Kaldi has automatic proportioning, ensuring consistency in taste and aroma. The twin pressure system provides high pressure (15 bar) for espresso or low pressure (3.5 bar) for coffee and tea. Additionally, it accommodates a variety of cup sizes. The Kaldi is available in a number of color options so you can match it perfectly with your decor.

Set-up was easy, insert the screen in the water tank, give everything a good rinse, pour in some water up to the fill line - 40 ounces- (I prefer using filtered water), plug it in and follow the simple directions in either the manual or the quick start guide.
Once the machine has primed itself, you are ready to choose your brew. Pull the handle back all the way, drop in the pod with the top facing the front of the machine, snap the handle back down, and choose your size by pressing one of the 3 selections:
Top button: 1.5 ounces for espresso
Middle button: 3 ounces for a long espresso
Bottom button: 8 ounces for coffee, 9 ounces for tea
The next time you brew another cup, when you lift the handle backwards, that disposes of the previously brewed capsule into the storage bin behind the drip tray. This should be dumped into the trash as part of your daily maintenance, in addition to always making sure you have adequate water in the tank (you don't want to burn-up your pump). Also rinse the storage bin out with hot water after you dump the capsules, it gets a little skanky in there if you don't!
All the coffee flavors I've tried are very aromatic, rich and flavorful. The espresso capsules all produce a nice crema on top. Even though hot chocolate is sometimes listed as available in a capsule, I don't think those are out yet (as of 11/1/12). I'm not a tea drinker, but I did try the Tropical Passion and it was good.Read more ›
The Kaldi makes superb espresso brews. So far we have tried the Carnevale and Premium Decaf Espresso. These 2 are both excellent. Brews a the standard Expresso shot or a tall espresso which is about 5 ounces. Both brews leave a nice layer of crema that lasts to the last sip. However, I also tried the French Roast as being one of the dark/bold selections; this one missed the note by being 'lite' for a dark brew; it does have a very nice smooth flavor, but it just misses the dark punch of a bold selection. I would place the french roast as a medium roast. We just came from Bed Bath and Beyond and purchased a package of the Starbucks Verona which was my favorite T-Disc on the Tassimo; well, even the Verona is on the lighter side; tastes good, but lite!
It has a small profile that does not take much counter space and has a very modern stylish look. it is not very noisy like the Keurigs and takes just a couple of minutes to finish the brew.
The items that could be improved: The water tank could've been made a little bigger to hold more water; if you are just brewing espressos, perfect size, but if you brew coffees the water tank is small. Secondly, the used pods fall into a reservoir which is not very hygienic, since the pod is full of water it will drip outside the pod and into the reservoir, which if it is left like that for a day or more, it will rot and smell bad. There is no way to put a tall cup under the nozzle, so you have to use low profile or espresso cups.Read more ›
I had little to complain about UNTIL i went into a coffee bean location to purchase something before work (to be frank I don't enjoy their in store coffee and was there due to limited options). They had a demo CBTL KALDI S04 for customers to sample SO instead of ordering a coffee I decided I would try the machine first and if it was miserable then I would purchase my typical americano from the cashier.
Well I can only tell you I was STUNNED. The coffee was strong, the creme thick and the double shot setting was plentiful (at least a third more than the Nespresso machine) and was just as good as any thing I would have purchased.
I can only generalize but most American's, and clearly I enjoy a stiffer and stronger cup and this machine provides you with such a coffee both in espresso form and coffee form.
Additionally the pods themselves are very convenient and are about 40 cents a piece and can be found in store and bulk buying isn't required and if you order 40 dollars a more a month from the subscription service they offer free shipping.
DON'T order the teas for this machine. To be honest, the machine doesn't understand the idea of steeping.Read more ›
