Ideal for home use, the Jura-Capresso 4-Cup Espresso & Cappuccino Machine will help you brew fresh coffee on demand. This versatile kitchen must-have can make lattes, cappuccinos, and espressos using a special Coffee/Steam selector that will let you personalize any drink by controlling brewing and steaming options.
Features and Benefits:
The Jura-Capresso's steam/boiler system can heat up in less than 2 minutes; with such a fast warm-up time, you will be able to go from start to a finished drink in under 5 minutes! Its built-in swivel frother with adjustable steam output also makes frothing cappuccinos and steaming lattes a cinch. In addition, clean up is a breeze, given the dishwasher-safe carafe and removable drip tray. Plus, with a thumb guard on the filter holder and a boiler cap with a built-in safety valve, the 4 Cup Espresso & Cappuccino Machine is nearly accident-proof. Although, to avoid being surprised with burnt coffee, you should be sure to stop the brewing process before the hot water runs out.
If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs.
I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!

This is an easy to use coffee maker. It is efficient, silent and fast My first impression was that the machine was a bit big. Now I do not worry about the size Use for exppreso coffee and it is satisfying to the taste. Reasonable price

This is my 4th Capresso machine, and my least favorite. It still (after 6+ months of use) has a factory smell to it. The brew/steam slider bar worked great for about 2 months. Now it's fickle and doesn't always go to steam right away. I am very unhappy with this machine. It's a step backward from my previous Capresso.

Poorly designed, large and clunky. In spite of using the same coffee and amount of water as with previously used machines and following the instruction manual, coffee is very weak.

Bring back the Capresso Mini, which worked perfectly and was a great size for small households.

I have a more general question about espresso. I like coffee. I drink it in the morning and all day long (well, not in the evening, which I made the mistake of doing tonight and I'm still awake at 3:00 a.m.) I have had a Cuisinart Grind 'n Brew maker and now have a couple of Keurig k-cup models--one at home and one at work.
Recently, I began researching a better coffeemaker for home and read about Capresso brand models with a grinder and without. The info said the brewing temp was higher for better coffee--something I have also read about Cuisinart makers. Then, I saw espresso makers by Capresso and DeLonghi and wondered if espresso would be better tasting. The only time I have had espresso is in an upscale Italian restaurant and I rather enjoy the strong flavor, but the small drink size leaves me wanting a real cup of coffee.
Can you brew a larger cup of coffee in an espresso maker such as the Capresso 4-cup listed in this article? Or, just a 2-3 oz. cup of espresso? Is a Lattee just espresso with frothd milk on top? I do like latte's sometimes, thinking it may be easier on my stomach than a plain coffee.
What is the next step to finding coffee perfection--a better quality drip coffeemaker or an espresso machine?
Capresso 4-Cup Espresso & Cappuccino Machine
My wife and I have used this machine and an earlier model to make cappuccinos for some years.
We may make from 4- 8 each morning. This machine is a bit of a pain as one has let it cool and then refill the water to start a new capp. We would like a machine that you could put enough water in to make 8 capps and then heat it up and do this with out any reheating or adding water.
While I like my Gaggia, my wife would rather use her Braun Il Primo, however she is on her second one and I wanted to ask about the Capresso 4-cup espresso. Would this unit be a comparable unit and hopefully longer lived? Is the quality of the espresso as good or better? One of your competitors is offering free shipping.
Thanks for your continued support.
With no reviews, I don't know how reliable this machine is. I don't want to spend a fortune but I also don't want a machine that doesn't froth milk right or the frother breaks after a few uses. Those are some comments I read about other less expensive machines. What is the warranty on this machine? Would you buy it as a gift over other brands if this was your price point?
