Many of today’s top machines claim to be professional-grade or offer some kind of functionality that they have labelled “Pro” but only a handful of machines can actually be used in coffee houses in a business capacity. The Saeco Royal Professional espresso machine is definitely one of them. With the ability to brew up to 100 cups per day, this is one machine ready to do some heavy lifting. With push button control and a degree of automation that has to be seen to be believed, this is one coffee maker that stands head and shoulders above the rest.
Features of the Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine
It would also be quicker to list the things that this model can’t do instead of all of the incredible things it can. With the touch of a button, you can grind, tamp and brew your shots, but there is also a built in bypass system that lets you use preground beans, as well. You have full control over how much coffee you brew with each use, as well as an LCD display that will keep you up to date with what your machine is doing. The Saeco Royal Professional espresso machine also offers an incredible cup warmer, a hot water dispenser, two frothing attachments and so much more.
It is a bit ironic to note that while this is a model that prides itself on offering an incredible degree of automation and convenience, that it is actually built for completely chaotic situations. With the ability to handle shot after shot, cup after cup, this is the model you will want if you are making drinks for the entire block. There is even a tool that shoves out used coffee grinds so all you have to do is empty the small tray the grounds are deposited on. Now that is convenience!
There can be much debate about which part of the Saeco Royal Professional espresso machine is most impressive. Is it the ease of use, the quick clean up or the fact that all of this functionality was housed in such an attractive package? While the design is a bit bulky, the look of this model is quite impressive. Even on the brewing platform there is enough room and enough space to perform several tasks at once, no small feat from any at home machine. There can be no doubt that this model features incredible functionality in a beautifully realized package.
When you consider the fact that Saeco Royal Professional espresso machines are capable of brewing hundreds of thousands of cups of perfect coffee every year, and when you consider the incredible quality of each cup, it is safe to say that this model qualifies as an incredible value. Do you need to have an army of coffee drinkers to brew for to make a purchase like this worthwhile? Not at all, you simply need people who love a quality latte and who have very little time to wait for one.
What People Are Saying
You have to look far and wide to find a legitimate criticism of this model. Overwhelmingly, people are praising this machine for its incredible versatility and the ability to practically clean itself. The only possible detraction that has been said about this model is the fact that the instructions are a bit complex, but when you are dealing with a machine with this much in the way of functionality, it is to be expected. Something tells me that if this model appears under your Christmas tree next year, you won’t mind taking a few days to read the instructions.
You don’t have to be an experienced barista with thousands of cups under your belt to appreciate this model, but if you are, you are going to love having one of these in your home. It isn’t the speed or the ability to dispose of its own grounds that really sets this machine apart, it is the fact that it is a quality espresso maker that brews great cups of coffee again and again. The fact that it can do this on such a large scale is icing on the cake. If you live with people that love coffee, this is the model for you.
