Exciting news!   Espresso Royale will soon be offering K-Cups.

Exciting news! 

Espresso Royale will soon be offering K-Cups.

Here’s the inside scoop fans.

Good coffee brewed in a drip type machine needs to be in contact with water for 5-6 minutes. Good espresso needs to be in contact with high pressure water at high temperature for 30 seconds to brew properly and have a full body and flavor. The challenge with K-Cups is that they extract too fast and yield a weak, thin lackluster flavored coffee.

Espresso Royale has worked with its partner to make a first class single serve cup that will work in all K-Cup type machines.

How? It starts with the cup itself, the filter paper inside, and the seal that will withstand a higher pressure. The cup is recyclable as is the proprietary box. The box itself is unique as it is a treasure chest with a closing hinged lid rather than a messy tear off. We also put more coffee in the cup and slowed the extraction time to about 50 seconds.

Finally, a great cup of coffee from a single serve machine!

These cups will be available in Espresso Royale Shops, on-line and at many Grocery stores in the next weeks.
Packed 12 cups to a box and retailing for about $9.95.

Painting is an outlet of creative expression.   It is a testimony of my thoughts and emotions. It is to beautify my mind, body, and soul by pleasing the eye aesthetically and thoughts conceptually.
The canvas is the most important tool, it is the foundation of balance created by the collaboration of subject and negative space.   My work runs the gamut between modern-contemporary, to Dada-mixed media.  Metals, texts, acrylic, spray paint, and polymers regularly appear in my work in addition to traditional oils. Red, blue, and yellow are dominant colors in my paintings because they are the purest values, all other hues are made by mixing these primary colors. A dominant theme within my work is the lotus flower. It is an important aspect in regards to the relation it has with my culture and way of life.   It represents my upbringing as a 1st generation welfare recipient and how my life has transformed. Through obtaining knowledge, culture and hard work, success has blossomed.
