FeaturesBack to Top
A true Automatic Coffee Center, the Impressa C5 has an integrated commercial-grade conical burr grinder with six separate grind fineness settings. The grinder’s stainless steel burrs make it especially adept at reducing heat and static, resulting in more consistent and flavorful grinds.
If you indulge in pre-ground, decaf, or a wide variety of coffee, you’ll love the bypass doser—which will allow you to skip the grinding and go straight to the brewing process.

Q & ABack to Top
I am thinking of buying a Jura C5. I have heard that you should avoid using an oily bean. Seems like a dumb question, but how will I know. We normally use Rio Grande Roasters whole beans in our current maker. I am not sure if this would be considered "oily". Any tips would be appreciated!
Answer by A
Michele, I am not familiar with those beans... However, if you can easily see oil on the beans, then they are not going to be good for your machine. If you look in a back of Starbucks Coffee, you will see what I mean about "clearly seeing oil".
