About Jura

Jura Elektroapparate AG is a Swiss home appliances manufacturer. Through most of its nearly nine-decade-long existence, Jura has manufactured the products itself. But about three decades back, in the 1990s, it outsourced production and that has continued till date. Today the company is primarily known for its range of automatic coffee machines. It both drives the Jura brand image and generates most of the company’s sales revenue. The Jura automatic coffee machines are all mid-range to premium products, which is to say that there are no low-cost coffee machines in its line of products. Jura also owns a subsidiary company called Capresso, which sells high-end coffee machines, espresso machines and grinders, among others. It’s worth noting that Roger Federer, often considered the best tennis player to have ever played the game, is the brand ambassador of Jura.

The dual cup spouts are height adjustable and illuminated. You can fit cups that are between 55 mm and 138 mm or about 2.2 inches to 5.5 inches tall in the spouts. The dual spout is equipped with fine foam technology that heightens the quality of the brew.

Aroma Plus Grinder

The grinder in Jura coffee machines has always been one of its highlights. Now the engineering team at Jura has taken the grinder to the next level. The Aroma Plus grinder now features a modified cutting angle within its core, which makes the grinding process more efficient and a lot more faster. Though the grinding time has been cut by about half, this multi-level grinder doesn’t affect the quality or the aroma achieved. It grinds fresh coffee beans in with a level of gentleness that preserves the aroma. It still retains the natural fullness. Besides cutting down on the grinding time, the Aroma Plus grinder also makes a lot less noise. You can also add other varieties of coffee to the powder chute, including decaffeinated blend.

Pulse Extraction Process

The optimal extraction time is maintained by Jura’s proprietary Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.). For example, while preparing a ristretto and espresso the Jura A9 uses a specific technique that sees hot water being passed through the ground coffee at a force and after short intervals. What this process achieves is that it gives the coffee enough time to develop its flavors. The Jura A9 has a total of 8 intensity levels, which allows you to customize your coffee flavor to perfectly match your preference and palette.


  • The brewing unit holds 6 to 10 grams of ground coffee, which is the ideal dose.
  • Up to 4 specialities can be saved on the start screen, just like how you would save a speed dial number on a mobile phone.
  • Maintenance programmes such as cleaning, rinsing and descaling can also be accessed with one touch, which ensures that the hygiene standards are easily maintained.
  • The Jura A9 switches to an energy-efficient mode on its own after 5 minutes of idle time and you can also program its switch-off time.
  • You get a 2-year limited warranty.


  • While there’s no doubt the Jura A9 is a top quality automatic coffee machine, the price nonetheless less is extremely high, almost bordering on prohibitive.
  • Some customers have complained that the quality of customer service provided by Jura hasn’t been up to the mark.
  • Another complaint with the Jura A9 is that it produces tepid cups of coffee, as opposed hot cups of coffee.

All the major tasks, including maintenance is automated for your convenience. You just have to think about where to pick up the next batch of coffee beans from and how much of it to pick up.
