    Saeco Royal Cappuccino machines

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,
    Im new to the site & am the owner of a Saeco Royal Cappuccino machine (please no comments on my taste or lack therof! *:)).

    I have used it for quite a while and am reasonably happy with the results I get - I dont use the frother.

    I would really appreciate hearing of any tips for use and any good experiences with particular brands of purchased beans and grind settings.

    As you can tell, slightly just above novice, but I do know a good coffee when Ive had it in the morning!

    Thanks,
    Andrew.

    Andrew,

    Welcome to Coffee Snobs.

    You can buy beans online from CS itself or some of the sponsors.
    If you are looking for local youll need to tell us where you are.

    Grind settings?
    Do you have your own grinder?

    Thanks Thundergod,
    I use the machines grinder - It has a lever to adjust the grind - I dont think the numbers relate to a size(?) of grind.

    Can you recommend a good smooth, flavorful, but not bitter bean to use?

    Thanks,
    A.

    The numbers should rel;ate to grind size.
    Smaller is usuall finer.

    I havent tried it yet but the Espresso WOW! from the Buy Brown link - top left side of your screen - is getting rave reviews.

    If you prefer milk based coffees have a look at the other offerings at that link.

    Try Cuppacoffees World Blend. Ive tried CSs Wow, but in my humble opinion, its nowhere near the depth and complexity of the World Blend which is the best coffee I have had in a very long time (and no, the cheque is not in the mail!). Of course, its all a matter of personal taste!
