Pinnacle of coffee brewing

The most expensive coffee makers in the world are coming to the UAE and Saudi Arabia, offering the region's coffee connoisseurs the ultimate in brewing excellence.

Royal coffee makers are handmade using the finest Baccarat crystal plus silver, copper and 24K gold. Each bespoke Royal coffee maker is designed for true connoisseurs who appreciate the intricacies of temperature, flow and contact with boiling water that go into creating the perfect cup of coffee.

Handcrafted by Paris-born Master Sculptor Jean Luc Rieutort, each Royal can consume more than 50 hours of workmanship — depending on the options chosen.

Royal coffee makers are painstakingly designed to ensure perfection at every stage of the brewing process and to seal in the important aromas and flavours that produces a cup of coffee unlike anything you have ever tasted, says Maria Tindemans, the coffee aficionado behind moves to bring the brand to the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

The coffee makers will soon be available in the region at a starting price of $15,500.

Middle East’s rich history with coffee made it the perfect destination for Royal, she says. “The Middle East has a strong connection with coffee that stretches back through generations to the rich, strong drinks brewed over desert campfires by Bedouins,” says Tindemans (maria@royalcoffeemaker.com).

“This connection with not only the drink but the ritual of preparing and enjoying a great cup of coffee, makes the region the ideal place to fully appreciate the time, craft and attention that goes into creating a Royal coffee maker.

“I was amazed when I saw these coffee makers in the US. Royal coffee makers are precision engineered to produce a drink of rare purity and taste. They are a perfect fit with the region due to their style and the extraordinary coffee they produce.”

Meticulously hand-built by teams of artists, sculptors, metallurgists and engineers, each Royal coffee maker is a labour of love. This attention to detail can be seen in the craftsmanship that goes into creating unique features such as the gargoyle, counter weight, oak leaves and finials, each made using the centuries-old ‘cire perdue’ method.
