JURA S8 Overview
The JURA S8 super-automatic machine is the first of its class, combining the best qualities of JURA's compact machines with the advantages of their more premium models, and reminding us of the wonders of Swiss design.
Features and Performance
First and foremost of the S8's upgrades is the integrated 4.3” high-resolution color touchscreen display, complete with graphics and animations at every step of preparation. We don’t think it’s ever been easier to navigate and program a drink as it is on the S8.
Altogether, a full range of 15 specialties are available on the S8, including: ristretto, espresso, coffee, cappuccino, caffè latte, espresso macchiato, and flat white. You can also select a portion of milk foam, a portion of milk, hot water, or lower-temp hot water for green tea, which we think is an excellent and thoughtful addition that rounds out this already amazing machine. In a word, it slays.
JURA has also upgraded the Fine Foam Frother on the S8, eschewing the old dial for a much sturdier switch, which allows you to easily adjust milk density for different drinks before, or during, brewing. A true innovation, the JURA S8 has us swooning.
To use the S8, simply touch and hold the desired drink for a few seconds, and you will be treated to a bevy of easily adjustable options and settings. Adjust temperature in three settings, strength in ten, drink volume, and add a special name to complete your custom drink. You can also set your custom drink to brew double the the selected specialty, create a duplicate custom drink to adjust separately, replace or remove a product from the start screen.
The precise, high-speed Aroma G3 grinder, integrated pre-infusion and pulse brewing system, make for delicious drinks; and the machines pre-programmed rinses and maintenance alerts make for a high-functioning machine for years to come.
Why You Should Get It
