It is a capsule coffee maker which inherently makes it a single serve machine, and uses CBTL’s own capsules which can be bought online at a discounted rate.

It’s a stylish, compact unit that anyone should be able to find space for in their kitchen and it can create a great fresh tasting espresso in just minutes. Let’s take a closer look…


At the touch of a button, the Kaldi S04 will create a consistent and rich coffee.

From the product description:

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

The company put a lot of focus on the quality of the coffee (and tea) they use in their capsules so you might want to treat this machine as simply a delivery system for their popular and high grade coffee capsules. It places pressure as it brews so that the finest flavours of the beans can be extracted to perfection.

The machine itself comes in a range of colours (scroll down the page to see more)

The Good:

  • A great consistent espresso every time
  • Quick one-button functionality
  • Less expensive than a Nespresso pod machine and arguably just as great coffee

The Bad:

  • As with any pod machine, you get no control over the brew and you may have trouble finding a stockist for your pods (although you can buy them online here)

Who Is This Espresso Machine For?

Single-serve pod espresso machines are great for a whole range of coffee drinkers, from those who need a quick coffee hit before work but who don’t have the time to make it manually to the folks who just enjoy the occasional coffee at the weekends and don’t want a large machine taking up space in their kitchen. The CBTL Kaldi S04 is no exception and we recommend this machine to anyone who is in the market for this type of machine. The customer reviews from folks who already have this machine are overwhelmingly positive so take a closer look now by clicking one of the links below.
