Jura Z8 Super Automatic Coffee Machine - Aluminum
Jura Z8 Super Automatic Coffee and Espresso Machine - Aluminum
The Jura Z8 is probably one of the best super-automatic coffee/espresso machines ever built. This model has so much to offer; it is hard to decide where to start. The first thing that impresses any user is the large 4.3" touch screen. It feels like you have a mini Ipad attached to your coffee machine with impressive graphics and animation. The Jura Z8 Offers an impressive 21 specialty drinks, displaying 8 drinks per screen. Also, the touch screen is sensitive and easy to use with two rotating screens. You can press and hold your finger on any drink, and you will enter the parameters of that drink where you can customize, save or duplicate all the parameters such as drink temperature, strength, size and much more. You don't like to use the touch screen, no problem. With the rotary dial and select button on the top of the machine, you can go through all the functions available to you as easy as turning the dial and using the select button. The Z8 gets 2 Thermal blocks. That means you get short heating up times as well as very hot milk and hot water. That means you get to choose from 10 levels of temperature for hot milk and milk foam. Obviously, you get a sizeable 280-gram bean container and a 1.9-litre water container, but you also get a blue light in the water tank, why you may ask? Because it looks fantastic. Use the Smart Water Filter, and you never have to descale the unit. If you choose to descale or when it comes to cleaning the unit, the very helpful graphics and animation on the touch screen guide you through the whole process. It is important to mention that the Jura Z8 has a centralized espresso, milk and foam spout, which means all the drinks are made in the same place. That is different than the other Jura models since those models get a separate milk froth spout, so when making milk-based drinks, you would use the side spout and with espresso-only drinks, the central spout. One last thing, the coffee ground container, where the coffee pucks go after the drink is made, can hold up to 20 pucks. That means you empty it much less often.
Your Drink, Your Way

Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P)
The variable brewing unit has a capacity of 5 to 16 grams and ensures the ideal brewing conditions at all times. The Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.®) developed by JURA optimises the extraction time. To make a ristretto or espresso, it forces the hot water through the ground coffee at short intervals. This process allows the flavours of the coffee to fully develop.
Multi-level AromaG3 Grinder
The multi-level AromaG3 grinder ensures that the coffee is optimally ground. By perfecting the cutting angle inside the grinding cone, the JURA engineers have managed to increase efficiency significantly. As a result, the perfect aroma can now be achieved in all its natural fullness in half the grinding time. So now coffee lovers can enjoy pure and perfect coffee indulgence with less preparation time.
Intelligent Water System
Use Jura Water Filters and you never have to descale the unit. RFID technology detects whether the new CLEARYL Smart mini (1,000 oz) or CLEARYL Smart (2,000 oz) is being used and adapts the settings automatically
Ground Coffee Drawer
In addition to the bean container, Jura coffee machines also have a container for ground coffee. You can use this to make a second type of coffee using ready ground coffee. To make drinks using ready-ground coffee, add a portion of ground coffee to the ground coffee chute. This allows you to make a decaffeinated coffee even if the bean container is already filled with regular coffee beans, for example. Only one portion of coffee or espresso can be prepared at a time when using ground coffee. Place a maximum of 0.4 oz (12 g) in the ground coffee chute.
Your Drink, Your Way. 10 Adjustable Coffee Strength levels. 3 Brewing Temperature levels and 3 programmable brewing temperatures

Ristretto / 2 x Ristretto
Ristretto: Single/Double. A concentrated, intense espresso. The same amount of ground coffee as espresso is prepared but with very half the water. That translates into a more robust taste, a little bit more sweet and syrup-like flavour. Ristretto is usually served with a glass of water. Ristretto is estimated to have less of a kick than espresso because less water would run through the beans.
Espresso / 2 x Espresso
Espresso: High-pressure and boiling water is forced through finely ground dry coffee for about 30 seconds to make espresso, creating a distinctive intense flavour and thick cream. Use espresso-roasted coffee beans for preparing espresso.
Coffee / 2 x Coffee
Coffee Simply made with water and freshly ground coffee
Special coffee / 2 x Special coffee
long pressure brewed extraction (usually 6.5 oz)
Cappuccino: usually served in a 6oz cup, the Cappuccino is made with three equal portions of espresso, steamed milk and foam. It is important to mention that Cappuccino contains equal amounts of milk and froth, contributing to a stronger coffee flavour.
Latte macchiato: Latte Macchiato is a milk-based espresso drink that emphasizes the milk than the espresso. Its served in a tall glass and has distinctive layers between the foam, espresso and milk with the foam on top, espresso below the foam and milk at the bottom. It is quite an appealing drink.
Espresso with a dollop of milk foam
Flat White is an espresso-based drink that contains steamed milk. If you want a coffee that allows you to taste the espresso strongly but with the creamy mouthfeel of steamed milk, it’s a great choice.
