The Royal Coffee Maker from Royal Paris is a handcrafted 24-karat gold & Baccarat crystal balancing syphon brewer. It’s coffee for kings and an objet d’art. Royal effortlessly transforms some of the finest coffee strains in the world with an unmistakable purity and clarity of taste.
Developed out of love for the original balancing syphons seen in European courts during the 1800’s, this vacuum coffee brewer from Royal Paris puts “pomp and ceremony” back into coffee making.
Handcrafted in 24-karat gold or silver, using Baccarat crystal and semi-precious stones, the Royal Coffee Maker evolved through countless sketches and hours of model clay forming.
French artist Jean-Luc Rieutort brings to life the exceptional craftsmanship to the Royal Coffee Maker more commonly seen in fine jewelry. Working alongside a team of skilled sculptors, artisans and engineers, with each machine taking more than 100 hours of workmanship, he has masterfully recreated the historic balancing syphon. Each Royal Coffee Maker is accompanied by two exquisite pieces, both handmade in France exclusively for Royal — the crystal carafe and burner vase. Only eight bespoke Royal Coffee Makers are produced by hand each month.
Brass parts such as the gargoyle, counter weight, oak leaves and finials are created by employing age-old methods of casting using the lost-wax method known as ‘cire perdue’, where more than 5 hours are spent on the spigot’s unique‘chasing dolphins’ closing system alone.
After casting is complete, the artist works on each individual detail by hand. Elaborate chiseling, brazing and polishing is involved to meet the exacting standards of the French craftsmen, where each part — no matter how small — is treated with the utmost care for Royal’s fine level of detailing. Each Royal can be finished in gold, copper or silver; with a choice of black obsidian, azurite or malachite to form the machine base.
“Your Royal coffee maker is engineered to create coffee of rare clarity and purity. Every Royal is numbered and is taken through a final test by our Parisian Master Craftsman,” says Royal Coffee Maker.
Royal Coffee Maker is present at the 15th Edition of Top Marques Monaco – The luxury and Supercar show (The Grimaldi Forum Monaco – 19th-22nd April 2018).
