The Jura-Capresso EC50 Stainless Steel Pump Espresso & Cappuccino Machine creates café-quality Lattes and Cappuccinos right in your own home. This affordable pump type machine can save you a bundle if you are an aficionado of a daily Latte. Not only is it a bargain priced machine from the renowned Swiss engineers at Jura, but it will make your favorite coffee / milk drinks at a fraction of the cost of buying them at a coffee shop.
The Jura-Capresso EC50 features a stainless-steel lined Thermoblock heating system and a 15 bar pump that allows the EC50 to make excellent Espresso like it’s much more expensive cousins. The Jura-Capresso control system produces brewing water at a precise temperature under pressure and puts it through the patented stainless-steel sieve for one or two shots situated in the self-locking filter holder with thumb-guard to extract the available aroma and flavor from your favorite coffee.
A professional style high-pressure swivel action frothing steam wand on the Jura-Capresso EC50 enables you to heat milk for lattes and to froth milk into micro-foam for rich cappuccinos quickly. Now you can develop your latte-art skills right in your kitchen!
A removable passive metal warming tray keeps cups at the ideal temperature for serving as long as the machine is turned on.

What kind of tamper does this machine brings?
Thank you for your post. The tamper for this machine is plastic, and is 45mm in size.
I have this machine, and I was wondering if it is an ESE compatible? ~Aleesha
Aleesha I am sorry it is not.
Question about tamping and pressurized portafilter. Is it correct that tamping pressure isn't important with this machine. That is the impression I've gotten from what I have read. If that is so is there any advantage at all to tamping either harder or softer. Also does a 53 mm tamper work, the one that comes with this machine is awfully flimsy even if you don't have to tamp very hard. I measured the plastic tamper and it is 50 mm, 53 mm looks very borderline as to whether it will fit or not. Also, any idea how big the included scoop is? I started using 2 scoops for a double shot, and that seems to work ok, but I am curious exactly how much that is.
With the Pressurized portafilter, the pressure of tamping is not important. The biggest part about that is just to get the surface flat and down far enough to clear the shower screen on the machine. The tamper that comes with the machine does this perfectly fine. 53mm is the correct size tamper for the machine, however.
Robert, I do not mean to disagree with Chris but I noticed a difference between tamping lightly and harder. If I press 'harder', I get a stronger coffee and when I remove the portafilter, the coffee residue is more compact and not too 'watery'. Take care, AP
I bought a 53mm Rattleware tamper for this machine after seeing the post above, and it is too big. Does not fit into the portafilter. Not a big deal, but just wanted to post here as an FYI in case anyone else is doing the same search. Maybe it is different for different brands? Luckily right after I ordered it, I found the tamper that came with the machine. (My one-year-old had run off with it and hidden it in the laundry room.) Robert is right; that one works just fine!
What is the difference between the EC50 and the EC100 other than price and physical appearance.
Both of them are great little machines. The primary difference as you mentioned is the look. Both of them have the same pressurized portafilter system, so they are both going to deliver good, consistent shots very easily for you.
Robert, I have been using the Jura EC50 for over a month and for the two of us it is perfect. As far as it concerns me the difference is in their price. Also, check how much room you have on your counter. It looks very nice and professional despite its light weight. WLL has the best price available for these machines and the best customer service ever. As for Chris' comment I agree with it, the EC50 delivers very good! AP.
I Think the difference is that the EC100 can use the coffee pods.I own a EC50 and as far as I can tell,it does not use the pods.
