General info

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.width

336mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
6.volume

57456cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Components

1.has a touch screen
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
2.Has an integrated grinder
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
3.Has burr grinder
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
A burr grinder works in such a way that you can get a consistent, uniform size of grind each time, which is one of the key aspects of getting great tasting espresso. On the other hand an inferior blade grinder often leaves you with an inconsistent grind.
4.Cup clearance is adjustable
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
5.Has a steam wand
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
The machine automatically deposits the used coffee grounds or pods into the dump box after extraction. The dump box capacity shows how many drinks you can create before it is full.

Water source

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
2.Has a removable water tank
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
3.Has a hot water outlet
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
4.Has integrated filter
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
5.Has PID controller
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.
6.Water tank is transparent
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.

Maintenance

1.Automatic coffee circuit rinse
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
The machine automatically cleans the coffee circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
2.Automatic milk circuit cleaning
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
The machine automatically cleans the milk circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
3.Has sleep mode
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.
4.Indicates when drip tray is full
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.

Features

These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
2.Has integrated milk frother
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
A higher number of grind settings gives you more flexibility when choosing the fineness of your ground coffee. The particle size is important as a grind which is too coarse can produce weak tasting espresso, whereas a grind which is too fine can lead to a bitter taste.
4.Has one touch cappuccino
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
5.Has a pre-infusion function
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
A larger integrated frother means it is possible to create more frothed milk for use in coffee-based drinks such as cappuccinos.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.
