JURA S8 Coffee Center

Jura has long been known as a supplier of high-end coffee centers that allow consumers to make a variety of coffee-shop-style coffee from the convenience of their homes.

The company’s S8 Coffee Center is the 2019 Housewares Design Award Best in Category winner in the Countertop Beverage Appliance category. According to the company, the unit offers premium elements such as touchscreen technology to create a new segment in automatic coffee machines— premium mid-range.

Offering consumers the opportunity to select from 15 coffee specialties ranging from espresso to flat white, the S8 also includes caffe latte as a one-touch milk specialty and the ability to offer hot water for use with green tea, which steeps at a lower temperature.

Equipped with a 4.3-inch high-resolution color touchscreen, consumers are able to utilize one-touch technology to brew the coffee of their choosing. In addition, the touch screen also allows the end user to program the unit, providing consumers the opportunity to rename, move, copy or duplicate customized beverages.

The coffee center is also equipped with an AromaG3 grinder and Jura’s Pulse Extraction Process that is said by the company to ensure optimum extraction time for short specialties to deliver the full flavor of espresso and ristretto.

The unit’s fine foam frother is said to take the guesswork out of creating latte macchiato and other beverages. The frother operating instructions appear on the color display thereby eliminating the need to consult the instruction manual.

Proper maintenance of high-end coffee centers is key for optimal performance. The unit’s Clearyl water filters protect against limescale and the Intelligent Water System automatically detects the Clearyl Smart filter cartridge. Integrated rinsing and cleaning programs guarantee TÜV-certified hygiene, company officials said.
