To say that JURA makes coffee makers is like saying that Porsche makes cars. With unique, innovative designs for both home and business use, JURA has everything you could possibly be looking for in a high grade coffee maker. Want to make espresso, cappuccino, plain whites, or just an unbeatable cup of coffee with the push of just one button? JURA can do that. The only thing you have to worry about is deciding which model to choose.
A Little Precursory Information
Business or Pleasure
Obviously, the first thing you have to determine is whether you need something industrial or personal. JURA offers a number of commercial coffee machines that are designed specifically for the workplace, so they will work as hard as you do. Designed to make over 100 cups of specialty coffee each day, you can make coffee for every person, at every meeting, and never worry, JURA’s commercial models are made for this.
If you are looking for an exceptional coffee experience at home every day, then you are looking in the right place. No matter what type of specialty coffee you enjoy, they have a machine for you.
The Bells, Whistles, and the Perfect Espresso
There is nothing better than a fresh cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Except perhaps knowing that your cup of coffee was made from fresh ground coffee that has been stored in an airtight, aroma saving, canister to protect freshness and flavor. That is what you can expect from every cup when you have a JURA coffee machine. In 60 seconds, your JURA machine can grind, tamp, brew, froth, and self-clean. Who could ask for more?
Feeling a bit intimidated? Don’t, you have nothing to worry about. Along with their innovative brewing ideas, they have also considered the brewer. Many models have full color, simplistic touchscreens that will walk you through the easy process effortlessly, ensuring you get the perfect cup, every time.
If you have a decaf drinker in your life and you are worried about having a one cup machine with preloaded coffee beans, nothing to fear. There is an option for that too. Some models come with two coffee canisters, allowing you to have both regular and decaf on hand at anytime. You even have the option to combine the two if you prefer half-caf.
If you were still thinking that JURA is just another coffee machine manufacturer, we present to you the Pulse Extraction Process (PEP). This is a patented process developed by JURA to ensure the freshest taste and best aroma with every cup, every time. PEP forces water through the grounds in pulses, instead of just one solid burst like most espresso makers. This ensures smoother, more flavorful coffee, even with espresso.
Do not just take our word for it, take a look at what customers are saying:
