    Drinking coffee like a royal is now possible with Royal Paris’ 24-karat gold coffee maker. Handcrafted by French artist Jean-Luc Rieutort, the Royal Coffee Maker doubles as a coffee maker and a work of art. Fashioned with a syphon brewer, a tool used in the mid-19th century to brew coffee for socialites, only eight Royal Coffee Makers are produced each month. The bespoke machine uses a Baccarat carafe and comes in 24-karat gold, copper or silver. Buyers can customize the base as well with semiprecious black obsidian, azurite or malachite with engravings. The brewing process is exquisite and perfectly timed, resulting in the perfect cup of coffee every time. Available at RoyalCoffeeMaker.com, retails between $10,000-$18,000
