Royal coffee enjoyment: with the contessa espresso machine from GRAEF

A whisper-quiet espresso pump, a powerful triple-thermoblock and numerous barista settings meet highly polished stainless steel with elegant glass side panels - the countess among the espresso machines, the contessa from GRAEF, takes coffee lovers into the versatile world of Italian coffee enjoyment in a particularly stylish way.

The flagship of the GRAEF CoffeeKitchen range belongs to the royal class of traditional espresso machines. Behind the elegant facade of polished stainless steel and glass, the contessa hides powerful technology for the best espresso. The interplay of heat, water and time is optimally regulated according to the wishes of the home barista.            

The contessa has 3 thermoblocks! One for the espresso preparation, a second for the steam and the third is used to preheat the brewing head. This makes the machine faster and thus ready for use after only 3 to 5 minutes. This saves time and energy! In addition, the espresso machine heats only the water actually needed at the moment "on demand" and thus consumes even less electricity.

The whisper-quiet dual-pump system also allows milk foam and espresso to be prepared simultaneously - not only at the perfect water temperature, but also at the appropriate pressure. To ensure that the espresso is always particularly full-bodied and balanced to please the palate, you can check the pressure at any time via the stylish and practical manometer.

But the highlight is hidden in the circular LCD display of the coffee expert: the barista settings. The display fits perfectly into the design, shows all the important information and preparation steps, and with its help every coffee becomes a precisely coordinated moment of enjoyment. All of the contessa's barista settings can be easily viewed here and selected using the programming buttons above them:

With the PID control, the brewing temperature can be conveniently set individually in 1 °C steps between 86 °C and 98 °C.

Pre-infusion can also be set on the way to the perfect espresso. The coffee grounds are moistened for a certain time before extraction. When preparing espresso, the shot timer counts the extraction time in the display.

For cappuccino and other drinks, the steam needs to be as dry as possible. The degree of steam moisture can be set individually via the display. The double-walled, externally insulated "no burn" steam lance and the hot water lance can be swiveled 360° and are made of stainless steel.

With the contessa, coffee fans can be sure of tickling even the finest flavors out of their favorite bean - for balanced, full-bodied enjoyment.

Wenn man den super schweren Karton in die Wohnung getragen und ausgepackt hat, dann versteht man das Gewicht: Eine super stabile, sehr edle Maschine. Ersteindruck: Genial. Dann nach vielen Testtassen, hab ich endlich meinen richtigen Espresso gefunden und jetzt werde ich erst mal ein paar Tutorials zu Latte Art schauen, damit ich bald Gäste formvollendet verwöhnen kann.

Aus meiner Sicht einer der besten Siebträger am Markt: Super stabil, sehr hochwertig und die Bedienung macht richtig Spaß. Eher nichts für Anfänger (wie jeder gute Siebträger).

Habe mich nach langer Recherche für dieses Gerät entschieden und es bislang nicht bereut. Man muss üben, dann wird der Kaffee zum ERlebenis.

Wahnsinnsgerät! Super hochwertig, sieht toll aus in der Küche. Kaffee, Crema, Technik – alles vom Feinsten. Nicht ganz günstig, aber jeden Cent wert.
