JURA ENA 8 Overview
Released as part of JURA’s ENA 8 Signature Line, the ENA 8 in Massive Aluminum is an impeccably crafted work of art. Updating the award-winning design with the inclusion of aluminum panels which take the place of nearly all of the machine’s plastic housing, massive truly means MASSIVE. This signature version of the ENA 8 weighs a whole 3 lbs more than its traditional counterparts. Adding to its aesthetics, JURA has also added a chrome colored lid to the water reservoir, located on the right side of the machine, which is hard to miss with its crystal clear design and diamond-shaped pattern.
Features and Performance
The ENA 8 features a 2.8” TFT color display with 10 built-in specialty beverages to choose from, including a cappuccino, latte macchiato, and even more where that came from. At the touch of a button, the machine can deliver crema-rich espresso beverages with no extra effort required on your part. The ENA 8 is truly a masterpiece of a machine and we haven’t even discussed the other details yet.
Inspired by traditional craftsmanship and modern technology, the ENA 8 blends the two worlds seamlessly, crafting beverages that taste like your local barista handmade a cappuccino just for you. But, instead of having to wait in line for seconds, the machine is ready to brew a list of beverages made from freshly ground coffee including a ristretto, espresso, espresso doppio, coffee, macchiato, latte macchiato, cappuccino, flat white, milk foam, and hot water. The most popular espresso and milk beverages that you could want are all in one machine, at the touch of a button, right in the comfort of your own kitchen or office.
Perhaps one of our favorite aspects of the machine is that the JURA ENA 8 doesn’t take up much space at all—it’s a small machine standing at 12.7” high, 10.7” wide and 17.5” deep, so you’re not taking up tons of counter space, which we love!
The ENA 8 is equipped with JURA’s most innovative and notable features including P.E.P® (Pulse Extraction Process) which pulses water through the puck to extract all of the flavors and aromas out of your coffee, the I.W.S® (Intelligent Water System) which uses RFID technology to detect if the CLEARYL Smart mini (1,000-oz capacity) or CLEARLY Smart (2,000-oz capacity) Water Filter is in the machine and is actively filtering out unwanted impurities, and the Aroma G3 grinder which ensures fast, quiet and even grinding using high-quality burrs.
Why You Should Get It
With the ENA 8 in Massive Aluminum, you’re getting all of the features that we know and love on JURA machines, but this signature version is something truly special. The materials and craftsmanship set this machine apart contemporary super-autos in a big way. The space-saving design makes the ENA 8 an easy fit for any kitchen with low-hanging cabinets. Despite its size, its drink selection is incredible, and there's no need to move the cup to make a cappuccino, latte macchiato, or flat white. When making drinks, it grinds quietly and JURA's Pulse Extraction Process ensures a full-bodied drink. Overall, the ENA 8 is an absolute home run
