There are many different types of coffee machines on the market, but not all of them are created equal. If you're looking for a high-quality coffee machine, you can't go wrong with a JURA machine, known for their quality, durability, and ease of use.

JURA is a Swiss company that produces a wide range of super-automatic espresso machines, which are also praised for their great taste, convenience, and the luxury factor that they bring into your home.

Features

Smart Connect System

JURA's Smart Connect system, integrated into almost every model, allows you to control your coffee machine from your smartphone or tablet. Now you can start brewing your favorite coffee even before you get out of bed.

The Smart Connect system features the JURA Operating Experience (J.O.E.). With the WiFi Connect technology, you can now make your favorite cup of joe with the simple touch of a button from anywhere in your home. Plus, with their intelligent accessories, you can customize your coffee experience like never before. Choose from a variety of milk types, flavors, and even brewing temperatures to get that perfect cup just the way you like it.

AromaG3 Grinder

When trying to find the best coffee machine at home, many people overlook the importance of getting a quality grinder. A good grinder will make all the difference in the taste of your coffee. If you want the best possible cup of coffee, go with a burr grinder over a blade grinder. Burr grinders evenly grind coffee beans, while blade grinders end up chopping them. This results in coffee that tastes burnt and over-extracted or dull and under-extracted.

If you want to make sure your coffee has exceptional taste, you can sip easy knowing that JURA is on top of this with every state-of-the-art machine. The built-in AromaG3 grinder equipped in every JURA machine has stainless steel conical burrs that ensure your coffee grounds come out in a uniform grind for superior espresso extraction. The 4oz to 10oz capacity bean hopper is reinforced to make sure your coffee remains airtight to preserve optimum flavor.

Pulse Extraction Process

The Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.) is integrated into every machine made by JURA, optimizing extraction time for short specialties and opening up new dimensions in aroma. This is achieved through short bursts of water being pushed through the ground coffee to extract your espresso for a beautiful crema-topped shot with exceptional flavor.

CLEARYL

Along with the grind size of your coffee and the pressure at which you are pushing water through the grounds, using high-quality water is essential for preserving the final flavor of your coffee as well as the longevity of a machine. JURA offers the CLEARYL plus filter cartridge as a solution. By inserting the filter into your water tank, it will filter particulates, limescale, and calcium to ensure amazing tasting coffee and completely removing the need to descale your machine.

JURA espresso machines come in a wide variety of styles to suit any need. Whether you want a machine that can just make espresso or one that comes with a milk frother and a steamer, you'll be able to find it in the JURA line. When purchasing a JURA machine, you’ll need to consider what each machine offers and how it will fit into your lifestyle.
