From the manufacturer
An espresso is a far richer drink with a more intense taste than regular brewed drip coffee. An espresso is normally 1 1/2 to 2 oz. of strong coffee. Espresso should be served immediately after brewing. If the espresso is too strong, you can add hot water. Add sugar to taste.
Water in the Boiler
The water in the boiler of the machine will get hotter during the brewing process. Towards the end of the brewing process the water will be so hot that it would burn your espresso. Therefore you never want to process all the water through the coffee as this will result in a burnt taste.
1 1/2 to 2 oz. of espresso coffee with 3 to 4 oz. of steamed and frothed milk on top. Sprinkle chocolate shavings or cinnamon on top of the milk froth. For a stronger taste increase the amount of coffee. For a milder taste increase the amount of milk.
Foamy layer of milk froth on top of hot milk. Which kind of milk? Skim milk and 1% milk will produce more milk froth than 2% or regular milk.
Cleaning The Frother Nozzle:
Wait until the machine has cooled down. The metal frother pipe may still be hot. Pull the frother nozzle off and thoroughly rinse under warm water. Make sure the nozzle is free of any milk deposits. Replace the frother nozzle. Make sure it is firmly pushed up the frother tube.
De-calcifying every 3 months
Remove the nozzle from the steam pipe. Fill carafe (2 oz. of white vinegar and 6 oz. cold water) and pour into the boiler. Close cap. Insert the filter holder with the basket into the machine and lock the filter holder. Place carafe without the lid under the filter holder on the drip tray. Place an empty cup under the steam pipe. Make sure the coffee/steam selector points to the cup symbol and the steam knob is closed. Turn the machine on and let the solution pass through the filter holder into the machine. With the carafe about ¾-filled, slide the selector to the steam symbol. Pass the solution through the steam pipe. Once steaming has stopped, close the steam knob. Repeat once or twice.
Always unplug the machine before cleaning. Never use scouring agents. Wait until machine has cooled down. Never immerse the machine in water or any other liquid. Never hold the machine under running water. To clean, simply wipe off with a soft, damp cloth.
Clean the Filter Basket
Clean the filter basket, the filter holder, and the glass carafe in a hot water/ mild soap solution. For your convenience, the filter holder, filter basket, and glass carafe can be put in the dishwasher's upper level, away from any heating element. Make sure the holes in the filter basket are free of old coffee deposits.
Clean the Tray
Remove the tray cover and drip tray and clean with hot water/mild soap solution. Replace the tray cover and drip tray and make sure the drip tray is locked in place. Wipe the inner screen with a wet cloth. The screen is located above the filter holder area.

"Does the area where you live have hard water? The machine may need to be decalcified. Please contact Customer Service at 1-800-767-3554 when you are with the machine and a representative can help trouble shoot over the phone."
Anyone who has ever had to contend with hard water knows that even the hardest water would not cause mineral build-up after brewing less than a dozen drinks. It just doesn't happen. But my water isn't even hard, despite being (filtered) well water. My last machine, a Krups 865, was NEVER decalcified in 22 years of use. When it finally died, it was due to a bad switch on the drip side, not even the espresso side. In hindsight, I should have just kept the machine for the espresso functionality. Now, I am willing to accept that machines are designed with different tolerances. Maybe the Capresso does indeed require more decalcification than other machines, but if my old machine never needed it, why would the Capresso need it after less than a dozen drinks? The answer: it doesn't.
It's not that I'm a know-it-all. It's simply common sense. I am intimately familiar with all aspects of my house's water supply, having built the system myself - right down to installing the pumps, pipe, electrical, and filtration. My water has been tested by Ward Laboratories and found to not be hard. I am a home brewer (of beer, that is) who understands mineral content and pH.
Be that as it may, I replied to the Jura rep. I explained that I would perform the decalcification to satisfy their request, but added that I did not need anyone to hold my hand during the process. I also explained that my water was not hard. I also explained the history of my old Krups machine.
To which Jura responded with:
"Please contact Customer Service at 1-800-767-3554 when you are with the machine and a representative can help trouble shoot over the phone."
That's right, another canned response. Not just any canned response, but a subset of the previous canned response.
And honestly, troubleshoot what? It's an espresso machine. Move the lever to the right, it makes weaker coffee. Move the lever to the center, it makes stronger coffee. Move the lever to the left and all of the pressure from the boiler that would otherwise be relieved by brewing is redirected to the steam wand. You then open the steam valve and let it do its thing. It's that simple. I don't need a frustrating telephone call to someone with a thick accent to tell me how to use an espresso machine and I certainly don't need to make that call to be told how to run vinegar through it.
I explained the problem well enough for Jura to make an RMA decision. (it's not like this is an issue they haven't received numerous complaints about from others) Instead, I got a discourteous, terse, boilerplate response intended to dissuade me from pursuing an RMA. And that is exactly what is going to happen. But along with not pursuing an RMA, I will also not be buying another Jura product.
I called the company to report this and after waiting on hold almost 20 minutes I utilized the option to press zero and leave a message -- the one that says your company will call back. They did not.
I called again today to advise them there was no need to call back because it was returning it and why. The "repsentative" told me she was sorry I had to hold so long on Monday -- NOT that she was sorry the piece flew out and hit me in the face. It's on its way back to Amazon
