Owning the Jura Impressa Z9Jura continues its endeavor in innovation with the impressive Impressa Z9 super-automatic espresso machine. The Z9 features a highly navigable TFT display that can be programmed to show a list of your personal favorites on the main screen, ready to brew at the push of a button. This one-touch machine comes pre-loaded with six specialty drinks at the ready. Browseable through the TFT display, Jura provides the tools and settings to save or customize eleven total drinks using the rotary switch on top of the machine. One subtle, but important feature are the five strength settings that can dose up to 16 grams of coffee for a true double shot of espresso. Not many super-automatics can boast the same feature. You can also adjust the coffee volume; and hot water can be adjust across three settings. Similarly, the Z9 also features a dial above the dispenser that controls the density of milk froth before, or during, brewing. For us at the office, this is critical and makes the difference between a latte macchiato and a cappuccino incredibly clear.
As with other Jura machines, the Z9 is hygienic and has convenient cleaning cycles pre-programmed in. The 2.7 L water tank can be easily removed, and is designed to work with a Clearyl Blue water filter to ensure great tasting coffee and reduce the need for descaling. The filters comes pre-activated for an extra level of convenience. The machine automatically rinses on start up, and displays a reminder to clean the milk circuit on-screen when needed. All of the maintenance processes, such as brew group cleaning and descaling, will throw alerts as well, and are easily accessed through the TFT display where they can be performed by adding cleaner and pressing a button. Step up to the Giga 5 for a dual grinder, dual boiler machine for high speed brewing and added functionality; or for a smaller machine you can control with your smartphone, take a look at the intuitive, ultra-convenient J6.
Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System (I.P.B.A.S)
All drinks on the Impressa Z9 feature variable dosing options between 5 and 16 grams of coffee, which are then pre-infused before brewing using Jura's Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System for maximum extraction of flavor and aroma. Similarly, coffee strength and temperature can be programmed ahead of time, allowing you to craft drinks to your exact specifications.
The Z9 utilizes Jura's revolutionary Aroma+ grinder, which features a specialized grinding chamber designed to reduce noise and cut down on grind times. The bean hopper has a 9.8 oz capacity and the dreg box can hold up to 20 spent pucks. Additionally, the machine also features a bypass doser, which allows you to brew with pre-ground coffee.
Dual Thermoblock Boilers
For optimal beverage quality, the Z9 was built with two thermoblock boilers to ensure temperature stability while brewing. One boiler is dedicated strictly to brewing coffee, while the other is used for hot water, steaming, and frothing. This, of course, means that there is no wait time between brewing and steaming, and the boilers recover rapidly from one drink to the next.
Automated Cleaning and Maintenance
The Impressa Z9 automatically displays maintenance alerts when the brew group needs cleaning or the machine needs to be descaled. The milk system has an automated cleaning cycle, and rinses after each use. Installing the Clearyl Blue water filter in the 2.7 L reservoir keeps the machine producing delicious drinks and prevents scale build up.
