Jura S8 South Africa – If it’s good enough for Roger…

Jura S8 South Africa – If it’s good enough for Roger…

There’s something about a celebrity –endorsed product that gets us, the average Joe’s of the world, revving with excitement. Maybe it’s because we know someone who is known around the world supports the same brands we do, or perhaps it’s the excitement of being part of an “exclusive club” that makes us not only want – but NEED – to have their endorsed product.

Jura has recently launched the S8 – with none other than tennis superstar Roger Federer offering his own unique brand in this advert. The emphasis is played on lightly, when Roger’s home robot attempts to offer him a coffee capsule; we won’t ruin it – so let’s just leave it at the understanding that Mr Federer isn’t having any of that.

So, what can we expect from the Jura S8?

Jura S8 Review

This is what Jura has to say about its latest offering:

“Great cinema in compact design.

The stylish S-line in clear, harmonious design excels with quality and precision in all matters. It combines the best of the compact class with elements from the premium segment and even impresses with a touch of GIGA. The impressive variety of specialties and the mastery of the coffees convince even the most discerning connoisseurs. The operating concept fulfils all requirements for simplicity and intelligence. The S-line of JURA creates a new segment at full-automatic: the premium middle class.”

“Variety of the highest moments of pleasure.

The entire range of specialties from the espresso to the latte macchiato is achieved with the stylish S8 in excellent quality. 15 specialties flow onto a touch of the touch screen colour display into the cup. Responsible for this are numerous top innovations. The Aroma G3- Grinding Mill granulates the coffee beans even more precisely, twice as fast and particularly aromatic. The pulse extraction process (PEP ®) optimizes the extraction time for short specialties and also guarantees a fireworks of aromas at Espresso and Ristretto. Milk and milk foam refined trend specialties succeed in perfection thanks to fine-foam technology.”

“Operating comfort defines the time frame.

The 4.3-inch, high-resolution touch-screen colour display, integrated into the coffee machine, provides a clear and comfortable overview. The operation can be controlled by the JURA Coffee App, which is always up to date.”

“To the milk foam animated.

Precision and quality down to the last detail, the characteristic design of JURA stands for this. Produced from the highest quality materials and exemplified for the best optics and looks, the new professional fine foam nozzle of the S8 presents itself. Developed especially for the preparation of coffee specialties with milk and milk froth, it conjures Latte macchiato & Co. in the best fine foam quality. Graphics and modern animations on the display make the operation as easy as never before.”


“Design presence with unique details.

Designers agree: the clear, symmetrical shapes and harmonious lines of the S8 give it an elegant aesthetic and a present expression at first glance. Finished materials and a great deal of attention to detail form an all-round design, which radiates harmony and tranquillity. A symbol for high quality manifests itself in the bean container lid made of hand-polished zinc die-cast. Details and purposeful accents make the S8 unique and serve a radiance that makes the heart of any design lover higher.”
