The Jura-Capresso Impressa J5 is a wonderful machine. It has clean lines and looks modern and efficient. It is a well-made, efficient and solid machine which I use regularly, and it works like a charm. It is fished in a rich platinum metallic treatment for the front and top with tasteful chrome accents contrast with the glossy matte black side and back panels.
The well-designed and used-friendly rotary dial allows you to override any settings for coffee and steam, and adds a new level of convenience. You also have 11 programming options at the push of an integrated rotary button.
All functions and settings are clearly displayed in the alpha-number LED display. It also features new Ceramic Valve technology which shortens the flow of coffee resulting in a hotter temperature and more crema in your cup for the best in high-pressure brewed coffee, espresso, latte and cappuccino.
The 18-bar pump combines with a fast-heating stainless steel lined thermo block that delivers cup after cup of coffee with no downtime. Within seconds the J5 is ready to deliver unlimited amounts of steam to heat and froth milk.
It also features an adjustable Coffee Spout which moves up and down and in or out to accommodate a larger range of cup sizes. Adjustable temperature setting for hot water output produces a hotter Cafe Americano and other beverages.
What People like about it
This machine makes the perfect cup of coffee or espresso. The milk frother creates perfect cream. I set it to ‘wake up’ before I do so its ready to go. Its as easy as pie to clean and the machine tells you to do everything- add water, beans, clean out grounds, etc. Its even Energy Saver. What else could you want?
What this machine will give you is convenience. The shots are hot and are good. It will give you good froth but not the true micro-foams you find in traditional semi-auto machines. I still love the machine and feel that the espresso it produces is better than 80% of the retail coffee shops.
– It makes really hot beverages
– Two types of frothing method
– Programmable everything (e.g. water temp, strength of coffee, amount of water..etc)
– Self-rinsing before start up and before shutdown.
– Plastic Shell (Should be steel)
– Cleaning the wand properly after use. (You really have to soak it and make sure the little holes on the wand are clean. Or else it will not steam properly)
I would recommend this machine to people who are into coffee/espresso and appreciate a good machine which delivers an excellent coffee and works really well.
