OverviewBack to Top
In a reprise of the first digital coffee maker with a Pump-Automatic-Cappuccino-System, Jura-Capresso offers the classic dual purpose CoffeeTEC Coffee Maker and Cappuccino Machine. The powerful 1250 watt heating unit lets it fill the 10-cup stainless steel thermal carafe with fresh coffee in less than 8 minutes producing more aroma and les bitterness. The brew-through-the-closed-lid technology then keeps the coffee hot for hours. This means you can load the machine, preset the 24 hour timer to come on just before you arrive at the office, and a fresh pot of coffee will be waiting to greet you when you arrive. You can also adjust the batch size from 3 to 5 to 10 cups as you desire.
As an added bonus for the cappuccino lover, the patented Pump-Auto-Cappuccino-System (PACS) converts cold milk into hot milk & froth in 30 seconds. A control valve lets you adjust the temperature of the hot milk. For a cappuccino you won’t need a frothing pitcher, the PACS dispenses the proper amount of hot milk and froth right into your cup.
The permanent gold-tone filter cleans up with a rinse, and you’ll be all set to refill and brew the next batch quickly.
FeaturesBack to Top
There are 5 signal lights for on/off, programming, auto mode, 3-5 cup selection, and “steam ready” indications on the control panel. You can easily adjust settings for the amount of coffee, and using the combination dial and push button unit set the advanced programmable digital clock/timer with its bright LCD display, AM / PM indicator, and 2-hour safety shutoff.
A large steam control knob lets you switch the steam unit on. It comes up to steaming temperature in about 10 seconds and you can then heat and froth the milk for cappuccino or even hot chocolate. An adjustable valve lets you increase or decrease the temperature of the milk.
The Jura-Capresso CoffeeTEC stays in a stand-by mode once brewing is completed for 2-hours so you can prepare another cup of hot coffee during that time. It will then shut itself off for safety.
Patented Pump-Auto-Cappuccino System
The Jura-Capresso CoffeeTEC’s patented Pump-Auto-Cappuccino-System (PACS) with its electronically-controlled steam pump delivers hot milk and froth for up to 8 regular cappuccinos (32oz) at a time directly into your coffee mug or cappuccino cup in 30 seconds. To operate turn the steam selector dial to “Steam On” and in 10 seconds you can be making hot milk and froth for cappuccino’s or hot chocolates. An adjustable valve lets you increase or decrease the temperature of the milk.
The PACS comes with its own 32oz cold milk reservoir, which can be stored in your refrigerator when not in use to keep your milk fresh. It can also be filled with chocolate milk and then in seconds you will be making hot chocolate with rich foam on top!
Housing and Construction
The Jura-Capresso CoffeeTEC is housed in an easily cleaned contemporary black plastic, with matte silver operating buttons, and brushed stainless steel accents. Parts for the auto-frothing system are constructed of brushed and translucent plastic. The water reservoir is heavy gauge plastic. The milk reservoir, lid and milk steaming and delivery components are made of plastic for easy cleaning and assembly/disassembly.
Stainless-Steel 10-Cup Thermal Carafe
The Jura-Capresso CoffeeTEC’s unbreakable stainless-steel 10-cup (50oz) thermal carafe has some small design touches that make it easier to avoid spills. A dot on the lid indicates whether the unique carafe lid is open for pouring or closed for brewing. The brew-through-the-closed-lid technology of the brushed stainless-steel thermal carafe keeps coffee hot for up to 4 hours. The spout of the carafe is wide but sufficiently pointed to enable pouring without drips.
Carafe Base Plate and Cappuccino Drip Tray
There is no warming plate needed for the Jura-Capresso CoffeeTEC’s stainless-steel thermal carafe so it rests on an unheated plastic base that is easy to clean. The cappuccino side has a small circular drip tray as a base on which to place a cup. It is easy to remove and simple to clean.
The removable water reservoir for the Capresso CoffeeTEC has cup markings, 2 valves and is very unique. Its design greatly simplifies the process of making cappuccino and other drinks. The removable reservoir is made of translucent plastic and has a handle for easy carrying. It is located on the back, but is visible on the right side of the machine. This is where the fluid level indicator lines appear. The frothing system pulls water from a recessed portion of the reservoir, so the indicator marks are skewed to reflect this additional space. Having this extra room in the reservoir enables you to begin frothing or steaming almost immediately after brewing and, by only filling this area, also allows you to use this function without brewing.
GoldTone Coffee Filter
The filter for the Capresso CoffeeTEC has one very unusual feature: a safety button that prevents the filter from swinging out at inopportune moments. Given the infrequency of a filter coming loose, the best aspect of this feature is the simplicity of the release when you go to discard the used grounds. You won’t get your fingers anywhere near a warm or wet surface. The machine comes with a permanent lifetime GoldTone filter, but you can also use a #4 paper cone filter.
