If you’re a serious coffee drinker…..no, I mean SERIOUS….perhaps you’ve heard of the company Jura. They are the Rolls Royce of coffee, espresso and cappuccino machines, both for residential and commercial. Jura has just come out with their J9 One-Touch TFT, and it’s the first compact automatic espresso machine that resembles the company’s Z7 flagship machine and its technology.
The Impressa J9 One-Touch TFT is a marvel of elegance with sophisticated lines and a beautiful finish. It sports a centrally-located LCD TFT screen, which controls the entire machine from the touch of a button. The guts of the machine house some refined “workings”, including a coffee extraction process that shortens the flow of coffee for hotter and fuller brews. A dual coffee spout design moves not only up and down, but in and out as well to accommodate any size of cup you throw at it.
The [amazon_link id=”B0051O8YRQ” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Jura Impressa J9 One Touch[/amazon_link] can make Latte or Cappuccino with a single push of a button, and without moving the cup. It’s ideal for any home or office, and when brewing, it’s as quiet as a mouse. No excruciating froth noises come out of this puppy. It also has a user-friendly rotary dial, which lets you manipulate the amount of coffee brewed and various brewing processes. Additionally, after brewing espresso, the stainless steel thermoblock reservoir will discharge any bit of hot rest-water into the tray so every brew starts with fresh water. The brew temperature control in the Jura Impressa J9 is adjustable in 3 setting options – regular or hot , and 3 setting for the HOT water spout.
The Steel conical burr coffee grinder, which resides in the unit, can be set to six different grind settings, and Jura Quiet Operation System features technology that provides very low noise during grinding. An invisible Electronic laser bean sensor makes sure to inform you to fill coffee beans just before you are almost depleted. The Impressa J9 also features a two-step pre-infusion cycle – The Intelligent Pre Brew Aroma System (I.P.B.A.S.©) moistens the ground coffee and then extracts the coffee. This ensures that you’re getting a perfect crema topping & maximum flavor. The J9 also has a separate funnel for pre-ground coffee, a cool feature if you brew decaf or flavored coffees but don’t want to mix them with your regular coffee beans. When you lift the lid of the funnel, the Jura knows that you want to use pre-ground coffee and you get a message on the digital display to add the ground coffee.
If you like to steam your milk, you’ve got choices: standard steaming or frothing. The J9 can do both in milli-seconds. Jura calls the technology One Touch frothXpress Plus system, and it’s super fast and a breeze to use. You simply push the frothing attachment up to froth or push it down to steam it. Making cappuccino or latte is child’s play as well. Both brews can be achieved with only a single touch of a button. Jura Impressa J9 One-Touch lets you to steam milk and brew coffee without moving the cup. The frother function can be set to a certain duration from 3 to 120-seconds so you can get the same results each time you make a cup. Additionally, you can over-ride the pre programmed duration, if need be, by stopping the steam using the dial. This will extend or reduce the duration of steaming.

Included with the Jura J9 One Touch is the frothXpress Profi Auto Cappuccino system and the Thermal Milk Thermos, which can keep the milk cold and fresh for up to 8-hours. If you like the machine to do the work for you, the Profi Auto Cappuccino automatically siphons milk from the included milk thermos, combines it with hot steam and delivers hot, frothed milk to perfection into your cappuccino cups with…yes…. just a push of a button. The frothXpress temperature control is a cool bonus for extra hot Cappuccino or Latte drinks.
In my opinion, the J9 is the grandfather of all brewing devices, but with the “new-kid-on-the-block” speed, efficiency and looks. There are so many features to boast about: the Triple Hot Water temperature setting, a Commercial-Grade-Solid-Steel-Conical-Burr-Grinder, 9 oz. Bean Container with Aroma Cover, Low Level Bean Indicator, 20 oz. Stainless Steel Thermal Milk Container, Two-Step Pre-Infusion for Maximum Aroma, Clock/Timer with Programmable Auto-On and Auto-Off features, Two Energy Save Levels, A rotary dial and LED display dialog system in seven languages in the dialog system (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch), Cup illumination where LED lights behind the coffee spout will automatically turn on and illuminate your coffee preparation area, a cleaning and maintenance indicator and a Clearyl Claris BLUE Water filter, which removes chlorine, lead, aluminum and copper from your tap water for a better tasting coffee. A special organic additive removes almost all carbon and eliminates decalcifying altogether.
Any time you turn on or off the machine, it will run an automatic hot water rinse cycle to ensure cleaning all vital brewing parts from coffee oils residue just before it pre-heats. Want to know how many cups of coffee you are consuming? Not a problem. The Jura J9 OTC TFT counts them for you, which is a great feature for offices. The J9 will also turn on and off automatically upon your request. You can choose from half an hour to nine hours. Oh, and did I mention that the Jura J9 makes a damn fine cup of joe?
