Check PriceJura Capresso S9 Impressa allows you to make your perfect cup of espresso, cappuccino or latte in less than 60 seconds with a simple push of a button.

The Jura Capresso Impressa S9 Automatic Coffee Center is one of the fastest and most versatile machines of its kind in the market today.

The Jura S9 can make various types of beverages as well as an unlimited amount of hot frothed and steamed milk for cappuccinos and lattes.

It features two stainless steel lined thermoblock heating systems that have a 96-ounce capacity, a traditional frother, and its own automatic froth Xpress Plus system.

You can make sure that the Jura Capresso S9 is a complete hot beverage center as it also offers a separate hot water spout for tea, a separate ground coffee funnel as well as a stainless steel warming tray.

The S9 is well suited for use at home, in office and a small restaurant.

S9 Classic vs Avantgarde

When I started researching about this product I got confused. Different sources were mentioning visually different models – silver Avantgarde and black Classic.

It was easy to figure out that these are different iterations of the same model. When the silver S9 was launched in the early 2000s, it was the latest appliance model in their lineup, and they named it Jura S9 Avantgarde.

Then a couple of years ago it was replaced by updated black model, and it was renamed S9 Classic.

Features

Decalcifying will not be a problem as S9’s 96-ounce container is removable and has Clearyl water care system.

Chilled milk can be heated, siphoned, frothed and dispensed cup after cup because of Impressa’s built-in Xpress Plus system.

For lattes, the setting can be tweaked so that the appliance can produce hot steamed milk minus the foam.

Built-In Steel Grinder

You will be able to drink your preferred type of brew as it comes with a commercial solid steel conical burr grinder that has 6 fineness settings.

This One-Touch Espresso machine also allows you to tweak settings such as temperature, strength and cup size while you are brewing as it comes with 4 one-touch individually programmed beverage buttons that each come with unique rotary dials.

One Touch Cappuccino

This feature allows you to prepare a cup of cappuccino, coffee, latte macchiato other hot drinks with the help of a single button.

All you have to do is press the button and wait for the results while you are free to do something else. The machine will do all the work for you, and you do not even have to move your cup. Come back and receive a fully prepared nice cup of joe.

Bean Monitoring

If you have ever experienced lack of been juice in the morning because your grinders were empty, this feature will end it for you.

The Active Bean Monitoring feature helps to check levels of coffee beans in the container at all times, so you know when to refill it, and so you do not get a shock first thing in the morning when you are running late.

Adjustable Spout

Not all cups are of the same size, and different types of beverages require different mugs as well. The adjustable coffee spout feature eliminates any issues arising from that.

The spout height can be adjusted from around 3 inches to 6 inches so that many different sized mugs can work with this machine. This also makes it very versatile and easy to use for when you do not have too many of the same sized cups around.

Graphic Display

It’s likely you’ll be completely lost when you first receive your device. The graphic display helps one to see the next steps in the process clearly.

Instructions such as the “fill the water tank,” “press rinse” and “empty tray” help one see and understand clearly and makes the experience a whole lot easier and faster.

3 Temperature Settings

Not everyone loves their espresso hot, some like it lukewarm, and some cold. One temperature setting can be bothersome for anyone who prefers all three or has a big family with different preferences.

The S9 comes with three water temperature settings of Low, Normal and High so you can receive your perfect cup at your preferred temperature, and have the option of changing it up as well if you decide to change your mind.

Energy Saving

While some electric devices waste a lot of energy, some appliances have options to be more efficient and energy saving.

It comes with multiple levels of Energy Save Modes, so one can choose the one they want at particular times and save energy while enjoying their beverage. This feature makes this machine wonderful for times like right now.

Self Cleaning Programs

While some find it hard to use machines, others find it hard to keep them clean and hygienic. The Jura S9 comes with prompts and automatic rinsing features.

One can clean this manually if they wish to, or when they are running short on time, they can simply opt for the very convenient automatic cleaning so it will clean itself while in use.

Customer Reviews

Jura is a trusted name in the line of anything related to coffee. So it does not come as a surprise when customers warmly receive the newest release of their product line.

People who have used Jura Capresso S9 have said that they love how the coffee machine is easy to use and how it can produce a brew based on their preferences.

Customers can make sure that the S9 will not be making noise while brewing their cup of joe thanks to its low noise construction.

Comparing the price of the coffee sold in trendy restaurants, home-made java using this machine is much cheaper and is of the same quality.

The controls are easy to understand so that even newbie baristas with minimal knowledge of coffee will enjoy making classic drinks using it.

The features do not also need enhanced editing, as most of the levels are pre-adjusted to make an optimum cup of java. Its self-rinse method basically means it cleans itself, and extensive knowledge of its own status lets it make the user aware of the need for manual rinsing.

It can calculate the levels of the materials it can use and can add in a large number of factors to make each drink unique in its way.

Just like every complicated piece of machinery, the S9 requires regular cleaning and maintenance. Failing to do that can cause durability issues, especially maintenance has been neglected for a long time.

Take care of your espresso machine and the Impressa S9 Classic will let you enjoy all benefits of the best espresso maker money can buy.
