Rated 4 out of 5 by Efros Nice coffee maker with some problems
We would lke this coffee maker a lot more if the dispensed products were hotter. Americano is nice and hot but latte is almost cold and foam is weak and little structure. Would certainly recommend if weak points disappeared.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Leslie58 Makes an ok espresso
Have had the Royal Professional model for over 20 years and it made a great espresso. Am a little bit disappointed with my new machine as it needs to be restarted often. Secondly, we also have the Vienna Plus model which actually makes a better coffee than the Royal. ~$350 vs ~$1200!
Saeco machines have changed in the years. Seems to be less dependable. When did Philips buy Saeco? Had always been a loyal Saeco customer but will try other makes in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EspressoRalph Makes espresso hot & robust
Had the first Royal Professional 220 v available in Canada. Served me well. However would prefer to have available the euro model in black / dark grey, with the more traditional cappucinatore attached to the water / steam stick. The unit is much more robust looking and easier to keep looking clean. Should also be $150 less expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kdoug Best product I have used to make espresso/latta's!
I have had my Royal for over 5 years now. It's ease of use and speed with which you can make yourself an espresso or 5, still amazes me! Weaker, stronger, more water run through, etc, are all easily adjustable. Want a little different taste, use another coffee bean!
Just got back from holidays, 2 weeks away, and when my wife asked me if I missed her, I said yes.... but was thinking, next time, I'll take my Royal with me!! LOL

I Roast my own coffee so how it is made is improtant to me. We have owned 3 Saeco makers and this is by far the best. Our first Royal circa 2000 was given to a friend and has brewed 22,000 cups and is still running. Great coffee

Rated 5 out of 5 by A2coffeeguzzler So far, so good
We had a Royal Professional for over ten years and it was well worth the cost. Finding a machine that had the same or similar capabilities was a challenge.
So far, the new model has met and exceeded our expectations. The test will be whether it will last as long with all the electronics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beanhound Full featured, easy to use. great latte & cappucino
Clean design. Excellent simple controls. Very customizeable. Ability to use ground coffee as well as the beans in the machine allows using everyone's favorite. The latte and cappucino are so fast and simple. Power management saves emnergy and keeps you from fkorgetting to shut down. Warmup is quick.
