Relive the Winning Cup of Emperor Franz-Joseph of Austria

The journey of Royal Paris coffee maker began in the late 1850s. Emperor Franz-Joseph and his wife Elisabeth, whom we all know from the movie “Sisi”, were to host a spectacular Royal banquet that their guests would never forget.

Coffee was growing in importance as a bespoke statement of refinement and style. The Emperor commissioned what would become one of the most exquisite coffee machines still making a bold and remarkable statement today.

Our desire at Royal Paris is to recreate this imperial experience for the most discerning palates and those who love to live well. Luxurious living well punctuated by the aroma and glittering statement of the Royal Coffeemaker bringing demi-tasse par excellence to the world’s finest homes and estates.

The dazzling elegance of serving coffee made “the Royal way” conjures up images of the Orient Express, the Great Gatsby, and places where beauty and style rule. Royal Paris coffee maker is more than a statement of extraordinary taste, it is a commitment to making every moment of your life extraordinary and celebrating with those you love.

It isn’t just about brewing the finest coffee or being the celebrated host. It is about elevating every moment and celebrating life at the highest level. It is about honoring tradition and creating a new legacy. Royal Paris invites to create your moments of imperial pleasure.

An objet d’art.

A technical masterpiece.

Seldom has one invention captured the imagination of so many. The origins of a Royal brought together the world’s finest glassmakers, mathematicians, goldsmiths and engineers to impress on the aristocracy in a legendary banquet. Made from silver and gold, featuring a delicate and beautiful design, guests marvelled as physics took hold to brew the best coffee guests had ever sampled.

Man could finally, ingeniously, harness some of the world’s oldest natural elements together with the newly discovered — as fire, steam, pressure, vacuum and gravity combined to brew some of the finest strains of coffee known in the New World.

Over 1000 hours go into handcrafting each machine

A history in the art of taste

Unlike today’s modern coffee makers and machines, a Royal leaves nothing to chance — where every minute process becomes a foregone conclusion and an exact science — as the system seals the delicate aromas and flavours to create a coffee unlike you have ever tasted.

A step-by-step

brew process.

As boiling water moves through the handcrafted pipet, it has already cooled the critical few degrees required before reaching the grounds. The result: coffee and water meet at the perfect temperature to extract the delicate oils and flavours, but not so hot as to impart a ‘scorched’ taste. The elegance in how a Royal accomplishes this must be noted in how the coffee is brewed by extended contact with water, maintained at precisely the correct brewing temperature, after which the coffee is immediately separated from the bitter grounds — which remain in the glass carafe by way of a gold filter. As a Royal delicately balances its temperatures, the water never physically ‘boils’ when it comes in contact with the grounds.

This is just one example of how each Royal is individually tuned by our craftsmen to brew the purest coffee. There are no artificial filters to impart a ‘paper’ taste, nor to dilute the aromatic oils that give the different strains of coffees their unique taste.

The coffee from a Royal can best be described as ‘crystal clear’, with a great purity of flavour and aroma — and no bitterness added by the brewing process.
