Grind, Tamp, Brew and Clean in under 60 seconds..with a push of a button! Make perfect espressos, cappuccinos, lattes and crema coffees..every time! The Impressa C5 produces more crema for the best high-pressure-brewed coffee, espresso, cappuccino, latte, cafe mocha latte and more. The Impressa C5 features an illuminated Rotary Dial for a whole range of coffee specialties using a single control. With the Rotary Dial operating system you simply turn and select the symbol to choose between espresso or crema coffee and one or two cups. The variable brewing chamber holds between 5 and 16 grams of ground coffee, making it possible to brew any kind of coffee from a single 1-ounce ristretto to two 8-ounce cups of coffee at one time. The Impressa C5 features a stainless steel Thermoblock heating system and an 18-bar pressure pump that guarantees fully aromatic high pressure brewed coffee and a strong layer of crema. The Impressa C5 comes equipped with a Dual Frother PLUS, which makes it easy to froth or steam milk like a barista into any sized pitcher or directly into the cup. There is also a dispenser for hot water. A Clearyl Water Filtration System purifies water and eliminates the need for decalcification. A separate coffee funnel can be used with different varieties of pre-ground coffee, such as decaf, when there are regular beans in the bean container. The commercial quality conical steel burr grinder with six fineness settings has a special design to maximize the flavor and aroma of the coffee. The machine alerts the user to add fresh coffee beans when needed. Self-monitoring rinsing, cleaning and descaling programs make it easy to keep the Impressa C5 in top condition. All setting and activities are permanently stored in a built-in memory.

The espresso is excellent. The ability of precisely calibrate the the fineness of the grind pays off when you adjust it for your favorite bean (I use Lavazza Crema, also a good deal through an Amazon subscriptions). The various other features all work about as described -- few surprises.
After 14 months of heavy use (two quadruple espresso pulls and cappuccino operation every day, all year), I found the hardware for the steaming fixture is just not up to even routine household usage. Even before the year's warranty expired, an excessive amount of steam and hot water was escaping from somewhere near the top of the frothing wand. I assumed it was from around the rubber grommet by which the wand can be detached from the machine for proper cleaning -- I figured I'd stretched it out from frequent cleanings and so I just called and bought a new one ($15) from Jura USA. After installing it, I discovered that was not, in fact, the problem: high pressure super-hot steam continued to escape from the flimsy joint between the metal wand hardware and the 3mm curved metal pipe that delivers the steam from the front of the machine. Now, I keep a piece of paper towel wrapped around the joint to prevent getting scalded when turning off the steamer.
In addition, the drip tray fills up quite quickly, even if you *never* allow purging water or other drippings to go into it. (There must be some internal water purging process that happens to dump all this water into the tray.) Be sure your sink isn't too far way: the tray is shallow and long, which can make for a tense walk to the sink.
First - Appearance: This is a very handsome machine. Black and chrome always look good and will complement your kitchen or office.
Second - Quality: Although nothing has broken it is mostly plastic. Mine gets a very good work-out everyday. I make about 10 cups of coffee daily and there is no noticeable wear and all the parts are working.
Third - Coffee: This machine make a decent cup of coffee, not memorable but decent. I like my coffee strong and frankly this machine just can't seem to get it strong enough for me without clogging.
Fourth - Maintenance: This is where this is just not the machine for me. Descaling and cleaning are a series of press this button then turn this knob that way and then turn the other way. It not set-it-and-forget-it. You will need about one hour to descale and clean and keep the instructions in front of you during the entire operation checking off each step as you go. Also the descaling tablets and filter are not inexpensive and I found that I spend about $20.00 monthly for those items.
All-in-all, this machine has been disappointing. I cannot recommend this machine to anyone that doesn't want to spend a lot of time and attention to simple descaling and cleaning.
I was spending a lot at Starbucks on a weekly basis, like the rest of the world... And it really just made sense to invest in a quality machine. This is the lower end of Juras... I can't even imagine what their upper end machines do - but I sincerely think this machine makes better espresso and coffees than Starbucks.
Personally, I have just bought the syrups (carmel and pumpkin spice) from the Starbucks website and have been making my own fancy drinks at home, for WAY cheaper.
My friend has had this same machine for years, with no problems. It's a dream machine.
///// *UPDATE* \\\\\
It’s been about 5 years with this machine now and... it’s still just as good as the day I bought it. I use it for a double cup of coffee before work 6 days a week plus an occasional second throughout the day. I can’t begin to imagine how much money I have saved by not going to coffee shops —— thousands.
I’ve pretty much done zero maintenance on this thing. It came with a cleaning tablet so I remember using that about a year after I got it, but have never bothered to run another.
I will say that the little canister that holds the coffee grounds gets moldy by time it’s full; so that’s a little off putting, but I don’t think there’s really a way to avoid that and it’s in an enclosed area separate from where it brews so I can’t imagine there being any health concerns. I’ve survived.
I mostly just use this for regular morning coffee but I’ll make a fancier latte a couple times a month with 2 espresso shots. I absolutely love Lavazza Super Creama. The beans are way better than Starbucks and have ran through this machine for years without any clogs. They’re not greasy and cause no clogs - I’ve seen other reviews and it mentions in the manual to avoid the flavored beans because of the oils.
It’s simple ... I have mine set to run a small amount of hot water every time it turns on and every time it turns off and I’m pretty sure that’s what has kept it going for so long. I’d imagine if anyone is having problems they’re with calcium building up from not clearing the tubes. Some people leave theirs on all the time ... with that method you have to remember to manually put into a clean out mode whereas mine shuts off after an hour and cleans itself. The start up takes maybe 45 seconds to warm up and then spits out some water to clear the lines. (I just leave a water mug under the spouts at all times.)
This machine has never let me down one time. It’s a very integral part of my morning routine and it’s a breeze. I most definitely will buy another if it ever takes a poop, but there’s really no end in sight. I feel I’ve already got my money back on it at this point 10x over, so if it died tomorrow I wouldn’t be mad at all. In fact, I’ve decided if I get promoted soon I’ll be moving that one to my office and getting a new one at home - just because!
