Combining dramatic aesthetics with advanced technology, this fully automatic coffee center brews superb espressos, cappuccinos, lattes, and long crema coffees. The machine features an 18-bar power pump with a 1450-watt stainless-steel lined ThermoBlock heating system. The unit's integrated, professional, solid-steel conical burr grinder offers consistent and aroma-saving grinding with six fineness settings for any type of bean--from light to dark roasts.
|In addition, its separate funnel for pre-ground coffee allows for making decaf or flavored coffee drinks--great for entertaining. A two-step pre-infusion cycle moistens and conditions ground coffee for maximum flavor extraction with perfect crema topping. The unit's fast, easy-to-use Dual Frother Plus provides continuous steam output and offers two settings, one for latte (steaming milk) and one for cappuccino (steaming and frothing milk).|
|For added convenience, the espresso machines programming functions are easy to use. Simply touch the 1-cup button once, twice, or three times for mild, regular, or strong coffee, and turn the rotary dial to select the cup size from 1 to 8 ounces. The 2-cup button always produces twice as much coffee. So, if the cup size is set to 7 ounces it will brew a total of 14 ounces. The unit's frother can be used to release hot water for Cafe Americano or a cup of tea, and its hot water function is programmable from 1 to 16 ounces. An eight-digit LED display dialog system gives short, simple instructions like "ready", "heating", "steam ready", "fill water", and "clean unit". Selecting from "continuous-on" or "auto-off" from one half-hour to nine hours in one-hour increments ensures the machine stays on as long as needed.|
|Other useful features include a 64-ounce removable water tank, an 8-ounce bean container, a height-adjustable coffee spout, a five-level water hardness selector, and an automatic hot-water rinse cycle that cleans and pre-heats all vital brewing parts. Moreover, its Clearyl water-care system removes chlorine, lead, aluminum, and copper for better tasting coffee, and an electronic water-level sensor makes sure the machine never operates without water. Accessories include a measuring scoop, Clearyl filter, water hardness indicator strip, cleaning tablets, and a video with detailed tips on brewing, frothing methods, and cleaning. Designed in classic black matte with a silver metallic middle section, the espresso machine makes for a beautiful addition to any home or small office. The unit measures 11 by 13-3/5 by 17 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.|

I was instantly delighted at the great coffee I got out of the E8, though it took some tweaking to get it consistently the way I liked it. I typically drink coffee, not espresso - the E8 and its kin are more aimed at the espresso/latte/cappuccino crowd with the maximum single cup size being 8 ounces. But that was enough for me.
Some things I learned: I like dark-roast coffee and often a new bag of beans would be oily and stick in the bean hopper rather than falling into the grinder. So I developed a habit of lifting the lid of the bean hopper and "twiddling" my fingers around the entrance to the grinder so that the beans would fall in steadily. I had no previous experience with milk frothers, and eventually got the hang of the one on the E8, but I gave it up when I got the Capresso frothPRO which does a much better job. Lastly, I like my coffee a bit hotter than the E8 can brew. Jura talks about prewarming your cup on the metal plate on top of the unit, but this does nothing - the plate is simply decoration over the plastic shell and doesn't get warm enough to do anything. But a 2-ounce shot of hot water from the frother spout does the trick. Nowadays I don't bother with that and use Coffee Joulies to keep the temperature up. You'll have to Google Joulies - I was a Kickstarter backer of them and they're not yet available for retail sale.
I know another couple who also has the E8 and they, like some of the reviewers here, have had to send their E8 back to Jura for repairs. I have not yet, and found something you can do yourself that, for me, fixes the problem where the coffee starts coming out weak and grounds spill over into the drip tray.
I have attached three photos showing what to do. The problem is with a perforated stainless steel disc that, I am pretty sure, serves as the "filter" for the brewed coffee. The mixture of hot water and ground coffee is forced through this disc where it then flows into your cup. The problem is that, even with regular cleaning cycles, the outside of this disc gets crudded up with coffee oils and grounds. Luckily, it's easy to clean.
Take out the drip tray and grounds bin and look inside the opening. The first photo shows a brown plastic flap with a slanted edge that comes down from the top. Reach in and gently pull this flap toward you (it is spring-loaded and will move a short distance - don't force it. Up and behind the flap is the filter disc with a screw in the middle. My second photo shows this with the crud it has accumulated. Take a damp paper towel, reach in and wipe off the disc and the surrounding chute. I find I have to do this several times before the towel comes out reasonably clean. The third photo shows the disc clean (or at least cleaner). I find that this cleaning dramatically improves the quality and volume of the coffee.
The last thing I'll mention is that Jura offers (at least) two different models of "Clearyl" water filter, which are not interchangeable. Make sure you get the correct kind - Jura 64553 Clearyl Water Care Water-Filter Cartridge - not the one "for ENA".
The E8 is now an old model and no longer part of Jura's current line, but it makes great coffee if you take care of it. It certainly spoiled me for any other kind of home-brewed coffee (and don't get me started on the swill that passes for coffee from the "pod" brewers such as Keurig.)
Another reviewer complained about the flow of coffee slowing down considerably. I also experienced this problem but it was easily resolved with a call to the very friendly tech support people who actualy keep extended hours. With machine on, remove the drawer. Take a dry paper towel and reach in and up behind what looks like a guillotine blade (but it is not sharp!). You will feel a round disc that faces the ground and probably has coffe grinds on it. Just wipe this down once a week and things will perform flawlessly.
I recently received my refurb E8 and could not be more impressed.
The unit arrived within 48 hours of order from Amazon reseller Kitchen Kapers. Other than the box and a sticker on the back, this appeared to be a new unit in every way. I was concerened when I saw another reviewer received a machine with 3,000 cups on the odometer. Mine had 120 cups under its belt which, to me, is barely broken in.
The unit itself looks great. Set-up was fairly easy and the controls and menus are well laid out.
For years, I have loved drinking coffee in Europe but was never a big fan of any coffee in the USA. I suddenly feel like I am back overseas. I loaded up the C8 with some illy coffee beans and the results are spectacular. I am not into all the foofy lattes, capacinos, etc., so can not really speak to those. However, for an absolutely fantastic cup of crema this is the unit to buy. Even at full strenght, no bitterness at all.
This unit willl look great in your kitchen, seems to be built to commercial quality, and most important makes a superb cup of coffee. I would not hesitate to pick up a refurb. The refurbs come direct from Jura-Capresso and they seem to do a great job.
Swiss designed U.S.A made, precision meets grit absolutely a fabulous mix. The inner workings just smooth and stable. From the grinder that just grinds and delivers quiet nicely. I have had many machine before this one mostly Semi-Automatics and this being my first Super-Automatic I will never go back and Jura has got a customer for life. You will not regret buying this machine and with a really good customer service it is a no brainer. You will be spending $300-400 on a Semi-Automatic just hold out and get this machine it is worth every penny.
The actual espresso will put Startbucks to shame. The "Crema" that it brings with every cup is just delicious and just phenomenally consistent. The self cleaning is fantastic and controls so easy to use. I love the customizable cup size which lets you dispense up to 16Oz of coffee and at different strength levels. My wife loves Americanos and I love short hard shots. We both get our fix in minutes in the morning before work and at nights. Guests that have observed it are raging with envy :). The only thing I haven't mastered yet is the frother. I think the milk we get isn't really all that great for frothing. Overall an amazing buy and an amazing machine. After a few months going stronger than ever and it's even the refurbished model.
