Jura E8 Review: You Should Buy It For These Reasons

Looking for a great coffee maker? You cannot skip the best-selling machine Jura E8 by the famous brand Jura. Check out my detailed Jura E8 review here.

You are a coffee addict who drinks coffee frequently, it is worth investing in a bean-to-cup espresso coffee machine at home. It saves you much time, effort, and of course, money as you do not need to queue at the coffee shops for a shot.

In case you have no idea what to buy, the Jura E8 is a good suggestion.

Read my Jura E8 review below to know everything about it.

A Comprehensive Jura E8 Review

Design and Convenience

The Jura E8 automatic espresso machine embraces minimalism in design. It looks simple yet attractive with black casing, silver side lines, as well as shiny chrome spouts. The machine is a perfect fit in modern kitchens where stainless steel is the key theme.

Aside from black and silver, there are other color options such as piano black and white.

Now take a close look at the details.

There are few visible features at the front, including a TFT display, a fine foam frother, dual spouts, and the cup platform. The screen works to show you all drink options along with settings, and you can make adjustments via six physical buttons on the sides. Below the large LCD screen are the dual spouts, and the milk foams frother stays on the left side.

The E8 takes up a small space on the stove top with a dimension of 13.8 x 17.3 x 11 inches and a weight of 22 lbs. Such a footprint allows the espresso machine to fit snugly in standard countertops in the USA. Make sure you leave some extra space for attachments though.

Capacity

The Jura E8 automatic coffee maker comes with a 64 oz water reservoir and a 10 oz bean hopper. Coupled with dual spouts, the brew unit is able to serve the needs of frequent coffee drinkers.

Features and Accessories

Jura E8 espresso machine is equipped with a number of advanced technologies for effortless brewing experience. Two of the most praiseworthy ones must be IPBAS ( Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System) and PEP (Pulse Extraction Process). The IPBAS adjusts the right amount and temp of water before brewing, while the PEP delivers short bursts of water to the ground coffee beans. The two features combine to provide an intelligent water system and optimal flavor for your coffee.

I love that the Jura E8 boasts several customization options to make the best coffee to your taste. For example, you can choose amongst eight different levels of coffee strength, from mild to average and bold.

What comes as a surprise is that Jura E8 features a builtin grinder that works on Aroma G3 technology. That said, the machine is capable of grinding coffee beans faster and retaining the original flavors better. Also, the coffee grinder provides you six grinding settings from coarse to fine.

I expected the E8 coffee maker to have a dual boiler, but in fact it does not. The machine has a single boiler design, which takes more time to make coffee. Fortunately, there is a Thermoblock technology to reduce the brewing time.

Last but not least, Jura E8 automatic coffee machine offers maximum convenience by wireless connectivity. It means you can control the espresso machine and make adjustments remotely via the Jura Smart app.

Jura E8 Operation and Maintenance

It is super easy to brew coffee with the Jura E8, even if you are an absolute beginner, since everything is pre-programmed.

Make sure you test the water hardness level first to ensure it is safe to use with your E8 bean to cup coffee maker. Then, add coffee beans and water. The water reservoir is removable, so you can take it out for easy filling. Do not forget to lock the lid.

Want to prepare a milk based drink? Then use a milk pipe to connect the machine to the frothing milk container.

Choose the drinks by pressing the corresponding buttons along the TFT screen display, let the machine brew and you are good to go. Your coffee will be ready in two minutes.

I love that the Jura E8 offers hands-free maintenance with an automatic self-rinsing function, a cleaning reminder as well a cleaning cycle indicator. Super easy to clean!
