Jura Z8 Review – Seductive Specialities, Superior Quality Coffee

JURA.com opens up with an inviting sense of what we can expect from the upcoming Z8 coffee machine:

“A world first: One-touch lungo for a light, aromatic‚ long coffees

The Z8 from JURA boasts an unbeatable standard of coffee. For long coffees, the world’s first automatic speciality coffee machine for the home with one-touch lungo function uses a special preparation method to additionally combine the coffee with hot water during the extraction process, resulting in full-bodied, deliciously light specialities. “

You had our interest, JURA, and now you have our attention…

Jura Z8 – Winner of the Design Award 2017




The design of this machine is going to knock your socks off. The Z-range seems to carry a unique styling component, evident in the curvature of the front of the machine to reflect the shape of a coffee bean (in our opinion, any ways).

Further to this futuristic styling, this is possibly one of the best user interfaces Jura has boasted. The touch screen is interactive – and drink selection has never been this seductive. Choose your desired drink from the screen displaying each available option, select and adjust your strength and water volume accordingly; not by pressing buttons – oh no – that’s SO last year, but rather literally using the screen to select a higher or lower amount on the slider.

Jura Z8 – Features – from the Horses Mouth

Three new specialities at the touch of a button.

Inspired by know-how from the world’s best baristas, the Z8 turns enjoying a coffee into a long-lasting pleasure. For the caffè Barista, the lungo Barista and the pot of coffee, it uses a special preparation method to also combine the coffee with hot water during the extraction process to produce full-bodied, delicate, deliciously long specialities. “

Big screen, big scene.

With a precise, 4.3″, high-resolution touchscreen colour display, JURA is laying down a marker for coffee machine user interfaces. Just as impressive as its imposing screen is the completely new operating concept. It sets itself apart thanks to its clear layout and simplicity in keeping with the times. The touchscreen literally puts all your favourite coffees at your fingertips.”

P.E.P.® and fine foam technology for unrivalled coffee quality.

State-of-the-art Swiss technologies ensure top barista-style quality. The AromaG3 grinder is now twice as fast, yet preserves all the delicious aroma of the coffee be-ans. The Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.®) ensures the optimum extraction time by pulsing the hot water through the ground coffee at the exact frequency for the amount of water to create a short speciality, such as a ristretto or espresso. Even on-trend creations with milk and milk foam are exceptionally easy to produce by simply touching the display.”

An unprecedented range of specialities.

The Z8 makes a statement for variety and choice. 16 different specialities can be selected simply by touching the start screen, and a total of 21 beverages are available via the Rotary Selection. What’s more, there’s still plenty of scope for coming up with personalised creations and names – let coffee fire the imagination”
