Edward is an internationally recognized artist who has been painting for over 50 years. In his “Garden of Eden” series, he combines his personal and artistic experiences to depict gardens more lush and beautiful than we hope to see.  He hopes these gardens inspire his viewers with dreams of a beautiful, harmonious place beyond our world.

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.
