Customer Reviews for Saeco Royal Coffee Bar
Review 1 for Saeco Royal Coffee Bar
Date:November 27, 2012
20,185 shots and still going
Pros: simple, tasty, low cost of ownership
Model Number: Saeco Royal Super Automatic
"We bought our Royal from Costco in 2003 (nine years ago) for $800. It worked great for 4 years until user error (neglected to empty the dreg bin for a few extra shots) caused a jam up inside. Another user error... dropped and cracked the clear plastic water holder. We took the opportunity to have the machine fully cleaned and inspected by the service center in Colorado Springs: $250. Machine has worked great ever since.
Currently the counter on the machine is at 20,185 shots. Taking our total machine investment of $1050, the cost of ownership comes to just 5 cents/shot.
Machine makes great espresso and half size portions. We only do talls for mom when she visits, who is used to drip taste/strength (yuck).
Our preference is to use dark roast lesser oily beans (if we can find them), but usually not too exotic, then set the grinder to finest and max the ground quantity.
We don't use the frother much at all any more. Initially I made Caps all the time, but just lazy now and want my shots. Tap Tap Tap... so easy.
While we like the look of stainless appliances, the cost of getting that upgrade in a good Super Automatic is mostly excessive. The mostly gray and black plastic machine body has held up without problem."

Review 2 for Saeco Royal Coffee Bar
Location:Saint Louis, MO
Date:August 29, 2012
Pros: great coffee
Model Number: Saeco Royal
"Fantastic purchase. Has worked flawlessly for the past 2 years. Would recommend this to anyone striving to get a cup of coffee to remind them of Europe. We tried a multitude of domestic machines to try to duplicate Italian coffee/espresso- never succeeding. On our last trip, 2 years ago, we asked what machine they used. Saeco came up very often. We were pleased to see Costco carried this model when we returned. Bought it and have been thrilled with its performance."

Review 4 for Saeco Royal Coffee Bar
Date:August 6, 2012
Model Number: Saeco Royal Coffee Bar Item # 671730
"I bought this a month back and just returned it yesterday. While the espresso is good, it is not strong enough for my taste. The auto-cappucino frother does good frothing but the milk is not hot enough for me. I was also not happy about the time delay for the steam to come out once you turn the knob.
