The Saeco Royal Coffee Bar gives you more choices than any other super automatic available. The most significant of these options is whether you’d like to plumb the machine directly to a water line or use the machine’s 82 oz removable reservoir as its water source. But the Royal Coffee Bar offers you far more flexibility than that. You can choose between 7 grind settings, adjust the coffee to grind and brew using between 6 and 9 grams of coffee per brewing cycle, and, using the Royal Coffee Bar’s 3 programmable brewing buttons, set the machine to dispense the specific amount of coffee that meets your taste. If you’d rather use a different type of coffee than the whole beans that are in the bean hopper, you can even opt to use a preground coffee in the machine’s bypass doser instead. And when you’re topping off you’re drink, you have the option of using either the steam wand on the front of the machine or the auto-frother connected to the left side. And no matter what choices you make, the Royal Coffee Bar will walk you through the whole process with its helpful LCD display. With all of these capabilities, the Saeco Royal Coffee Bar ensures that you get exactly what you want every time. Available in Silver/Blue, the Saeco Royal Coffee Bar comes with a grinder cleaning brush and a detailed instruction booklet.

Features & Benefits: Coffee

Option to Plumb

The Saeco Royal Coffee Bar can be connected to a direct water source, but you can also use its included 82 oz removable reservoir if you choose. This flexibility makes the Royal Coffee Bar a great choice that works very well in a variety of locations.

Automatic Coffee Center

This is more then just an "Espresso Machine"! It is easily capable of making any style of cappuccino or latte. In fact, most of our customers use their Super Automatic espresso machines for "crema coffee" instead of drip coffee. Crema coffee is simply an espresso brewed to fill a regular coffee mug. This produces a much more aromatic and flavorful cup of coffee as a result of the pressure brewed process (8 to 10 atmospheres of pressure!) that gravity based drip coffee systems simply cannot match. The Royal Coffee Bar will also produce hot water for tea or steam milk for hot chocolate!

Push Button Technology

It really does not get any easier then this. Just press the brew button and the machine does the rest. It will automatically grind and extract the coffee to your desired taste. When the coffee is finished brewing it will place the coffee grounds into an internal dump box for later disposal. Depending on the size of the coffee that you are brewing it will be done in as quick as 35 seconds and ready to brew again.

LCD Display

The LCD display will show you in words what is happening in the machine. It will tell you when to add beans, add water, when to decalcify and even if the brew group is slightly out of place.

Adjustable Beverage Volume

You have total control over the coffee volume (liquid) that is dispensed with three programmable buttons. These buttons come preprogrammed but can be changed easily to suit your needs.

Opti-Dose® - adjustable dosing feature

With Saeco's Opti-Dose system you can control the amount of ground coffee used for each beverage. 6 to 9 grams for a single and 12 to 18 grams for a double shot. Combine this ability with the "programable volume control" and you have total control over coffee strength and flavor at the push of a button. Put away the drip machine forever!

Adjustable Temperature Control

A special feature of the Coffee Bar is the ability to control the temperature of the coffee. There are 5 different settings for maximum control. The settings are Maximum, Minimum, High, medium and Low. For those of you who like a very hot cup of coffee select the maximum setting.

Aroma System®

This is a pre-infusion cycle and is another advantage of this Super Automatic coffee center. The first step takes about 2 seconds as it moistens and conditions the ground coffee. Next a 2 second pause allows the aromatic oils to leach from the interior of the coffee. The second step activates the high pressure pump to ensure absolute maximum flavor extraction with a perfect crema topping

Bypass Doser

This is used with ground coffee only. Perfect for those occasions when you don't want to be "caffeinated" or have decaf-only guests. This is also useful for experimenting with different types of coffees. If you are naturally a decaf drinker then use the bypass doser for regular instead.

Adjustable Coffee Spout

The dispensing spout slides up or down to adjust for different size cups. It adjusts from small espresso cups up to large mugs with no splashing.

Bon-Temp® - heating surface

This is a great place to display your cups and preheat them too! Remember that cold cups will lower the temperature of your coffee, detract from the aroma and flavor, and lessen the crema.

Professional Conical Burr Grinder

You can grind from fine to coarse to accommodate any style of coffee roast; light, medium or dark in espresso or regular coffee beans.

Pre-grinding cycle

The Royal Coffee Bar has a convenient pre-grinding cycle that will allow you to set the machine to pre-grind after your last coffee extraction. Then the machine is ready for the next person without going through the grind cycle!

Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water

Hot Water Dispenser

Makes a cup of tea or hot cider in 30 seconds.

Cappuccinatore and Steam Wand

The easiest way to froth (for cappuccino) and steam (for latte) your milk is with this patented frother design. You never have to worry about running out of steam under heavy demand when you have friends over. The machine will automatically produce steamed milk for lattes or create froth for cappuccinos. All programmable. Or simply use the traditional steam wand for maximum control.

Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other

Water Reservoir

The large removable reservoir holds enough water for 40 espressos or 12 cups of coffee at a time. When the water level is low an indicator light will tell you.

Removable Brew Group

The Saeco patented removable Brew Group is easy to remove. Just open the side door and remove with the thumb release lever. This gives you access to everything that touches the coffee when it goes through the brew cycle, including the removable screens.

Bean Container

Grind up to 40 portions of coffee before refilling

Internal Dump Box

The dump box is located inside the machine and easily accessed by sliding out the drip tray. It will indicate when the tray or the dump box need to be emptied.

Energy Saving Mode

Program the energy saving mode to automatically turn on whenever you desire. This will shut the boiler down but keep the controls on and ready.

Swivel Base

The swivel base makes accessing the different parts of the machine for maintenance, refilling water reservoir and bean hopper easy. Just rotate the machine, no lifting required!

Cycle Count

Convenient for those using the Royal Coffee Bar in a small cafe or office. You can keep count of how many extraction's the machine has performed.
