How many paintings or other works of art can brew a great cup of coffee?
Positive Product Points
Art meets function. The Royal not only brews great coffee but is really a functional work of art.
Negative Product Points
I have not noticed any negative features.
Many of the tips and tricks to getting the most out of this beautiful brewer have already been mentioned so I'll just say I tend to use a finer grind, alittle longer brewing time and pre heat the water on a stove first. It is a good idea to read through the coffe geeks detailed review before starting up. I was fortunate to get the Royal Coffe Maker, in polished copper, through a direct promotion that coffee geeks had listed in the conclusion/pricing section of its official review and have been more than happy with this really great brewer since day one.
Service was top notch. All emails were answered promptly by Patrick Van Den Noortgaete himself. I would buy another Royal in a second.
