For those of us who like our coffee hot, warm cups are a must. It brings a tear to my eye to admit that not every machine comes with a built in cup warmer, which is why I was so happy when I un-boxed the Jura-Capresso Cup Warmer.
My first impression was that the Cup Warmer looked a little bit like a computer, I found this quite fitting as coffee and computers are both essential parts of my life. Because its largely made out of plastic, the Cup Warmer is lightweight, reasonably sized, and looked great next to the Jura-Capresso Impressa C9 espresso machine that I was working on.
In terms of features, the Cup Warmer was pretty straightforward. It has two drawers and can hold anywhere from 4-10 cups depending on the size. The large volume of cups makes it great for entertaining. I measured the clearance on the drawers and found that it's about 3.6" wide and 4.25" tall so anything larger than that is out of the question.
The drawers heat up to 130°ƒ and I was pleased to find that the Cup Warmer can be programmed to turn on and off automatically. Personally, I recommend programming the machine to turn on roughly 10-20 minutes before you plan on making your coffee as it takes a little while for it to heat up.
With a stylish aesthetic and high capacity, the Jura-Capresso Cup Warmer is a great addition to any barista’s arsenal and is a wonderful companion to any Jura-Capresso espresso machine.
