JURA GIGA X7 Professional Overview
The GIGA X7 Professional is a powerhouse if ever there was one. Color us impressed by this dual boiler, dual grinder, dual milk system, dual amazing machine. The X7 can produce two espresso or milk-based drinks at once; its rapid steaming capabilities thanks to the dual boiler and dual milk systems.
Features and Performance
All the standard espresso and milk drinks, plus another twelve unique barista recipes come pre-programmed into the GIGA X7 for 30+ options total. Each can be adjusted across five strength settings, three temperature settings, and feature variable coffee and milk volumes that can be personalized to taste. The dual grinder and hoppers allow for inventive experimentation, thanks to JURA’s exclusive “beans a la carte” function, which allows the user to select, in 25% increments, portions from each hopper. So, you can create a new blend or easily brew a half-caf on demand. As if that wasn’t enough flexibility, the X7 also comes equipped with a bypass doser for pre-ground coffee brewing.
Just like all of JURA’s machines operating the GIGA X7 is an intuitive and stress-free experience. A rotary dial cycles through options on the color, LCD display, allowing you to easily select a drink to personalize or brew. As on all JURA machines, the cleaning cycles are completely automated, and a warning pops up on the screen to let you know it’s time for a little maintenance. All you have to do is add the designated cleaner and press start and the GIGA X7 cleans its own brew group, milk system or descales the boiler system.
JURA also made sure to program in plenty of rinse cycles upon heat up, before powering down, and after every milk-drink is brewed. Be sure to install a Claris Pro Blue water filter in the 5 L reservoir to preserve coffee flavor and cut down on descaling. A smaller Professional machine, the GIGA W3, is available from JURA , as well as a home version, called the GIGA 5.
