How to Determine Which Jura Machine is Right for Your Home

How to Determine Which Jura Machine is Right for Your Home

When it comes to choosing the right espresso machine for your home, making the right choice can seem like a very difficult thing to do. After all, each machine has different features and specs– and it can be hard, when you’re not an expert, to tell which one is the right for you.

That’s why, in this article, we’ll walk you through some of the best Jura espresso machines, as well as explain to you some of the most important features they have.

Why Jura?

There are many espresso machines out there today, so why would you choose a Jura machine over any other?

The reason is simple: Jura offers the best of the two worlds that make up today’s home espresso making; that is semi-automatic espresso machines and single-serve espresso machines.

While semi-automatic –the traditional choice– leads in both flavor and aroma according to the public opinion, single-serve coffee makers are far more convenient. Semi-automatic espresso machines let you use fresh coffee yet require you to know how to operate them and how to work around small nuances. Single-serve coffee makers, on the other hand, offer coffee at the touch of a button.

Jura machines offer both the use of fresh coffee –as fresh as can be, since they all have integrated burr grinders– and the ability to brew a cup of coffee with just the touch of a button. No need to learn quantities or how to operate an espresso maker. Touch, brew, and enjoy!

In order to know which machine is right for us, first of all, we have to think about the space that the coffee maker will be occupying- the kitchen. Is the machine too big, or maybe too chunky for the space that we have? Secondly, we must think about what kind of use our machine is going to have. Do we drink espresso, or do we make lattes often? How many times a day will I be using it?

Let’s look at three different Jura machines. We’ll look at their features and specifications with those questions in mind.

#1Jura A1

Jura a1

The first item on this list is Jura’s most ergonomic and stylish machine. It is a powerful machine that comes with its own grinder— yet it’s barely 10 inches wide; the kind of machine that can easily fit anywhere in your kitchen, no matter how cramped the space might be.

The A1 is able to make rich espresso (with two different strength settings), powering up and brewing in less than a minute thanks to its thermoblock system that helps heat water to the ideal brewing temperature in a matter of seconds.

It uses an advanced (AromaG3) burr grinder, as well as Jura’s very own Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P) for optimal espresso extraction.

#2 Jura E8

The E8 is, in all aspects, a great machine. It has been year after year the best-selling Jura product— and we can see why. Slightly wider than the A1 and definitely chunkier overall, this machine needs a medium, permanent place in your kitchen as it is bigger and heavier.

This machine uses a classy, easy-to-navigate digital display to help you choose what coffee you want to brew. And there are many options! The most notable one being the cappuccino.

The E8 has a very advanced foaming technology that makes an absolutely unbelievably silky foam that’s even better than what you get at the coffee shop.

It features P.E.P., One-touch function and a Multi-level AromaG3 Grinder.

#3 Jura Z8

Jura z8

Here we have an absolute unit of a coffee maker. It is big in size, yes, but it’s also a coffee maker that can handle making coffee after coffee without skipping a beat— and without the need for refilling. Out of the three, the Z8 is several times more powerful. You will need a lot of space for this machine, that’s for sure, but it’s more than worth it.

The digital display has very high resolution that is as responsive as a high-end smartphone— something that is very appreciated, particularly if you’ve had bad experiences with similar digital displays in the past. The touch screen guides through all 21 different coffee beverages you can make using this machine.

But that’s not everything this machine has to offer: you can connect to your Z8 via Bluetooth using the J.O.E app to closely monitor your machine as well as brew coffee from your smartphone. It can be found both on the Apple store and the Google Play store.

It features P.E.P., One-touch Lungo function and a Multi-level AromaG3 Grinder.

And with that, we have three unique Jura machines that are great at brewing some of the best coffee you can ever hope to brew at home.

Because all our needs are different, and some of us require a coffee maker that can make coffee for a big family without delay. While some of us might just need a small machine that can make coffee without too much hassle. No matter your needs, Jura has an option for you!
