Royal Paris coffee machines are the perfect gift for every coffee lover. Each coffee maker is plated with rare metals and is fitted with a beautiful Baccarat crystal and semi-precious stone base, meticulously built to achieve jewellery-class finishes.
These features make Royal Paris coffee makers the most expensive in the world and the ultimate unique gift.
A coffee maker fit for kings and queens
The decadence of a Royal Paris coffee machine lives up to its name ‘Royal’ and ‘Paris’. The balancing syphon coffee brewing technology has a long history dating back to the first half of the 19th century.
The story goes that in the late 1850s, Franz Josef, Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary, commissioned a famous Parisian goldsmith to supply him with a luxuriously adorned balancing syphon coffee brewer. Along with his beautiful young Empress Elisabeth, Emperor Franz Josef hosted a royal banquet at his summer palace, inviting all the courts of Europe.
A coffee maker with a royal lineage.
To celebrate, the emperor amazed his guests with the goldsmith’s stunning balancing syphon machine that used the forces of nature, gravity, vacuum and pressure to brew a magnificent coffee. The guests were blown away by an imperial after-dinner ceremony that they would talk about for the years to come.
Royal Paris re-creates this iconic coffee maker and pays homage to this royal history of coffee brewing.
Today, Royal Paris is famed for its quality. The machines are used in the most exclusive hotels as well as in the private homes of today's elites. This makes the Royal Coffee Maker a unique gift for coffee lovers.
Royal Paris has a strong heritage of Parisian craftsmanship. With its exquisite design, French artist Monsieur Jean-Luc Rieutort has truly created a masterpiece. Each machine is handmade and numbered by Rieutort himself, who crafts brass parts such as the gargoyle, counterweight, oak leaves, and finials by using the age-old methods of casting. He also employs the traditional lost-wax method known as cire perdue, where more than five hours are spent on the spigot’s unique ‘chasing dolphins’ closing system alone.
The glasswork is exquisitely crafted by Baccarat – a brand known for creating the finest crystals in the world, with a history of more than two hundred years in France.
Over 50 hours of laborious craftsmanship goes into each machine, meaning that only eight machines are made each month in Paris. This makes the collections extremely limited.

Black Ivory Coffee
Indulge in Black Ivory Coffee – made for first timers who are curious to try the world’s rarest coffee naturally refined by elephants. The taste, distinctiveness, and knowledge that you are supporting elephants and their caregivers makes this a very special treat.
Kopi Luwak Coffee
This authentic Kopi Luwak comes from the Indonesian island of Java and Sumatra – famed for its luxurious coffee. The coffee beans are partially digested by Asian palm civets – and this strange method of collecting makes Kopi Luwak rare and highly prized around the world.
The resulting coffee is like no other – with a rich, heavy flavor, the beans are accented with hints of caramel and chocolate. Earthy, musty, and exotic, Kopi Luwak comes out with a syrupy consistency.
