The upgraded counterpart to the all-time favorite office espresso machine, the Saeco Royal One Touch Cappuccino, brings us the same reliable performance with a new look and one touch access to your favorite drinks. The Saeco Royal One Touch Cappuccino gives you the ability to adjust the amount of coffee you'd like to brew based on aroma, or amount of coffee per drink, temperature, the timing of your brew's pre-infusion, and drink length or water volume. But what you'll also love is at a push of a button, the Saeco Royal One Touch will brew your coffee, steam your milk and pour it all into your cup in one swoop.

Features and Functionality of the Saeco Royal One Touch Cappuccino Superautomatic

  • Auto-cleaning and De-Scaling: The Royal One Touch is easy to use and includes automatic cleaning and de-scaling cycles that guarantee an ideal cup of coffee and will maximize the lifespan of your machine.
  • Cup Warmer: The Royal One Touch allows you to store and heat up your cups on top of the machine so your drinks are guaranteed to maintain it's heat.
  • Double Boiler: The dual boiler in this machine will maintain optimal conditions for both brewing and frothing. The two independent circuits will give you a quicker turn around time to froth immediately after you're done brewing.
  • Three Preset Buttons For Different Sized Cups: Press a button for a single or double shot of espresso. You can brew a small, medium, or large cup of coffee and vary the strength to your taste.
  • Bypass Doser: This option allows you to pour pre-ground coffee into a funnel that is accessed by lifting a small lid on top of the machine. This feature is perfect when there is someone in the group who wants a decaffeinated espresso, or if you wish to sample other blends of coffee.
  • Coffee Strength Function: The Royal One Touch has a feature that will allow you to adjust the amount of coffee to be ground for each individual cup. Adjust it from six to nine grams.
  • One-Touch: This machine will steam up your milk via the attached hose and pour it straight into your cup to make your favorite lattes, cappuccinos and milk-based drinks.
Pros
  • Simple to use: One touch buttons for espresso, Americano, cappucino and latte.
Cons
  • Clean up: The milk hose needs to be cleaned separately as the machine rinses the brewhead for you but not the hose.
  • Milk Carafe Put the hose right into your own milk pitcher or purchase a separate accessory carafe.

A shopper asked: What is the maximum size of the coffee drink (I would assume coffee and milk drinks are the same, or are they different)? Is it 8 oz, 10 oz or 12 oz? or 16 oz? Jun 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Bill K: My guess is around 8 oz. This machine allows you to program the length of each drink to taste but it does so with a bar/meter (like the meter that tracks how much of a file you've downloaded when online) rather than by specifying a precise number. I've had a few superautomatics and always had to adjust the length to suite my taste. This one was no different.

I probably dispense about 5 oz per coffee brewed and usually do 2 coffees per mug. The length "meter" is about 2/3 of the maximum length.

With Lattes, same is true of milk, then espresso. Each one can be adjusted to get the coffee/milk flavor blend you like.

Like I say, every machine I've had I needed to experiment a little while to arrive at the taste I liked for each drink that gets brewed. While the precise quantity is not specified, the system works just fine from my viewpoint.

If there is something specific in your question that I haven't addressed, I'd be happy to try and answer that too (assuming there is a way for us to have a dialog on this via Seattle Coffee Gear).

Overall, I am extremely happy with this machine. If you're trying to decide on this or another, I'd encourage you to purchase this one. Not only is it a great price compared to Juras and others with similar functionality, it has also been the most reliable (this is actually my second Royal, I brewed nearly 30,000 cups with my first one).

kaye m: the max size is approx 8 oz, when you choose either a hot milk or a long coffee. the regular coffee is around 4oz and the espresso is around 2 oz. the cappuccino option also comes out as 8 - 9 oz. Jun 18, 2014
Reply to kaye Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeff s: If you set the "coffee length" to the maximum value, you get about 8oz. I haven't measured it, but it'll fill a traditional coffee mug, but comes up short on the modern wide designs. Jun 25, 2014

Leslie W: Hi - closer to 8 oz for a latte, or even smaller. However, if you want larger, just run it twice... We are happy with the machine in an office setting so it gets lots of use. Jun 10, 2014
Reply to Leslie Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael P: I don't know what the maximum quantity is, but we fill up 10 oz coffee mugs with our Saeco. Also, 2 cup draw is possible, so the maximum must be quite large. Jun 11, 2014

Larkin B asked: We use this machine in our office and are very happy with the quality of coffee it makes. The only gripe is that is produces SO much foam for all 'milk' functions, whether it be a cappuccino, latte, or just the hot milk option. Is there a way around this? We are probably wasting a lot of milk due to having to scoop off massive quantities of foam during each use. Oct 10, 2013

D R: Hi Jason, I take it there is no adjustment on the machine then for the amount of froth produced? I'm looking at replacing a failed DeLonghi that has a milk jug that you slide in and this has the ability to adjust the froth from none to max or anywhere in between. I really like the Saeco but prefer a 'flat white'.
Thanks in advance

Jason A: Skim milk produces the most foam, use whole milk and there will be much less foam. 2% milk will be somewhere in between. I hope this helps. Oct 11, 2013

A shopper asked: For espresso shots, what are the best grind and quantity settings?

Is there an optimal shot size for this machine?
Jun 3, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The advantage to having your own machine at home or in your office is that you are able to really dial things in to your taste. For this reason, the Royal offers different grind and quantity settings that you can alter based on your preferences. Additionally, there is not one specific setting that will work best for all beans, and so you may find that a light roast will require a finer grind setting than a medium roast and can adjust accordingly. Hope this helps! Jun 4, 2014

Teri KStaff: The display of the Royal One Touch Cappuccino gives you a bar that indicates the progress of the drinks you're making, as well as alerts and warnings for cleaning and maintenance. You will need to access the menu and can then see the drink options and programming available very clearly on the digital display. Cleaning and descaling vary based on usage, but plan to descale once every 2-3 months and rinse out the brew unit once a week. The milk hose needs to be cleaned using the "clean" button and some clear water or water and Rinza after every use, while the thermos should be cleaned every few days, or at least once a week. Again, I'd recommend the product Rinza, a milk frothing cleaner that breaks up milk proteins, for the thermos, and you can soak it and it's components like that hose in a mix of Rinza and very hot tap water.

Machine works excellent. It takes a while to dial it in to your taste but it is worth it for the high level of convenience. Very easy to use and maintain. The cappucinotore is easy to use and clean as well, although I get better microfoam using the steam wand.

I've seen a lot of people comment that there is no manual steam wand. There is, you just have to enable the steam setting in the machine menu. The steam option will then show up under the special beverage menu. The wand will now dispense water or steam depending on your selection from the special beverage menu.

The only negative I can really complain about is the cup warmer. On the old Royals this was warmed by the boiler. On the new royal there is an electric element under the stainless surface and it takes forever to warm up and only really heats the center of the cup warmer surface. I just leave it turned off since it doesn't work well and I pull a dry shot using the ground coffee selection to pre heat the cup.

You will not regret having one of this one touch machine; when the machine was delivered, the salesman brought along a trainor who taught the basic operation, programmable settings for each brew and proper care. I love the regular brew in the morning and the latte at 7.5 grams and number 3 setting of the grind.

So far, so good for the first 3 weeks!

I bought the Royal One Touch as a replacement for a DeLonghi Magnifica. I used the Magnifica just for brewing regular coffee so I wanted a machine that would prepare milk-based drinks without too much trouble. (Since regular coffees are what I mostly prepare, I didn't feel like paying the almost $3K for the Saeco Xelsis SS.)
I tried brewing Cappuccino/Macchiato drinks and it was easier than I expected. The cappuccinatore seemed to work fine. I now look forward to an occasional milk-based drink.
I also like the large capacities for water and beans, an advantage over a number of other machines that I looked at.

p.s. Thanks to the ladies at Seattle Coffee Gear for all of their videos that I watched while researching various coffee machines.

Stick with Saeco - Royal line

My first Superautomatic was a Royal. Made over 20,000 coffees with that beast. Since then (3 years ago), went through a couple of others from Jura and an Excelsis. Both made great coffees but either had capacity issues (lots of care/feeding) or constant problems costing me $$.

Love the upgrades and cappuccinatore. Life span, from my viewpoint, is knowing how to clean and maintain the machine. I know exactly where and why this machine can run into problems and Saeco always makes the brew group easily removable and cleanable (unlike Jura).

The silver color is nice, but I would have liked a dark color to hide the inevitable coffee stains like the old Royals. The manual that comes with the machine is really poor.

Overall, this is a great machine at a much more attractive price point than many of the true One Touch equipment. Combine that with the reliability I expect out of this machine and I think its a winner.

I had a Saeco Royal for 11 years and this machine is a replacement. Excellent machine and love the one touch aspect. Now quite easy to fill orders for my friends at a dinner party, no manual steaming of milk. Still discovering a few programming secrets...but very pleased overall. Highly recommend this machine.

Had to replace a Saeco Vpresso which i really liked. The One Touch is an upgrade with bigger bean hopper and water reservoir. Coffee comes out great, with good crema or foamed milk. It is easy to use.

However, one quibble. It would have been even better if a steam wand was available in case one wanted to just steam up a pot of milk. Instead you have to attach a device to get hot milk or make a cappuccino. The description of the machine implied there was a steam wand.
