The Royal Paris Royal Coffee Maker “is a luxurious handcrafted 24-karat gold or silver, crystal and semi-precious stone balancing syphon brewer.” Eight are built by hand every month, at a price of $10,000-$18,000.
“Turning the art of brewing coffee into a ceremony, ground coffee is first placed in the fine Baccarat crystal carafe, hot water poured into the boiler pot and the Baccarat burner vase, lit. Next, the fully automated system allows heat, steam and gravity to brew the coffee in the crystal Baccarat vase.”
They’re incredible looking, I’ll give them that.
No word if you’re only allowed to use the $500-a-pound elephant poop coffee.
