What You Should Know When You Rent Jura Coffee Machines

You’ve made an exceptionally wise choice by investing in a Jura coffee machine, and an even better decision was to take it out on a trial period or opt for rentals. But you may still be wondering about a few aspects of your Jura – and so you should. It’s vitally important that you know what you’re getting yourself into, and we’d like to take the chance to explain what goes into looking after your Jura coffee machine as best you can.

Jura Coffee Machine Maintenance

By now we’re already familiar with the affect water quality can have on your coffee. And, also considering how costly a new Jura coffee machine can be, coupled with the fact you probably chose a Jura for the quality of coffee it can produce, you’re going to want to pay special attention to this facet. You’re really left with two main options for water – either using only purified water or fitting a water filter into the water canister of your Jura coffee machine.

There are benefits to both: use only purified water (NOT mineral water – this will still contribute to the build up of unwanted residue inside your machine). This method allows for you to override the filter function on your Jura, and it will provide you with some of the best tasting coffee you have yet to experience. The downside? You’re going to have to “trick” your coffee machine into thinking there was in fact a filter fitted. In short, to do this, press in your menu button (this is usually neatly tucked away behind a compartment on the front of a machine) and turn the dial until it shows “Filter” – click and set to “Yes”.

If you’ve decided to rather install a filter cartridge, and stick to using your tap water for example, installing your filter is quite an easy process. You can watch the process here.

If you opted for neither of the above, and will be using tap water without a filter, you will have to perform a deep clean on your machine, For this, you”; use either a de-scaling liquid or tablets. The cleaning cycle is relatively simple – pop the tablet into the override doser in your Jura coffee machine and press the rinse button. It will cycle through to “clean”: – where you can opt for a 20 minute cycle. Do this to ensure there is no build-up of lime scale or other damaging residues left behind.

If we were to suggest which to choose, it would either be using purified water or fitting a filter. Prevention will always be better than cure.

The intervals between filter replacement or de-scaling will vary -and are largely based on the literage of water passing through the machine. Depending on the size of your machine, this could range vastly, but keeping an eye on your machine and being “ready to go” when prompted to perform a function, try get it done sooner than later.

When it comes to servicing your Jura coffee machine, there is no hard and fast rule as to when you’d need to ave it done. If you take the specific precautions listed above and generally look after your machine well, it is possible you may never need to have your machine serviced.
