The Micro 9 is, believe it or not, on the low end of the Jura automatic espresso machine price spectrum (big spenders, look no further than the Jura Giga 5.) Still, considering the exorbitant price of a good coffee these days, maybe you'll save a few bucks in the long run.
The sleek, compact Jura Ena Micro 9 is a single serve machine capable of serving up your choice of a latte, macchiato, cappuccino, espresso, café crème, or hot water at, as they put it, the touch of a button." Just switch the pointer on the dial to select your preferred drink size, load up your coffee beans or grounds (more options!) as well as any milk products for the creamier beverages, and push the big button to produce a cup of fully customized delight. Accessories include steel vacuum sealed milk containers and optional cleaning kits. More intensive maintenance concerns can be and have been handled ably by the Jura support team.
In 1884, Italian inventor Angelo Moriondo filed for and was granted a patent for the world's first espresso coffee machine. An eccentric man, Moriondo kept his hand-built machine operating only within the confines of his various coffeeshops, intending to preserve some imagined competitive advantage. Luckily for the rest of the world, iterations of his concept came to worldwide usage in the years to come - culminating in the present day luxury of beautiful espresso machines, worthy of a barista, available for your kitchen.
The steamed milk is perfect. Every cup from this Jura Ena Micro 9 is fresh and delicious.
The Jura Ena Micro 9 is very fast, great looking and it makes a delicious espresso.
Water container is fairly small but it is easy to fill and it results in fresh cold water being used.
I love this machine, it's my daily go-to first thing in the morning.
