You can read all those long, verbose and highly informative reviews and they will not convey very much more than my relatively succinct review, which is to wit: the j6 is simply perfection. My first capresso was a refurbished f7, also purchased from 1st in coffee, which i have decided to replace after constant, trouble-free use over a five to six year period. Although the f7 still makes an impeccable cup, i thought it was time to replace it with the recent purchase of the j6, which i feel is a more refined and feature laden f7. Finally, two things: mr smith at 1st in coffee is knowledgeable and helpful; and the the reviewer who thought the j6 did not heat the coffee sufficiently must like it scalding like that served at fast food dumps. Did he preheat the cup with the steamer?. Do not use oily beans as it affects the brewing capabilities of the machine. If you do set the grind on the coarsest setting. Also, it helps if after removing the drip and ground trays if you will reach inside the vacated area, turning one finger upward and remove any remnant grounds on the surface of the round part which your finger will without doubt make contact. This info is not contained in the manual, but it seems that this is standard protocol amongst jura reps for issues which might be resolved with this simple method. Ask them if you do not believe me.
Easy to use, make the most delicious coffee drinks. Would definitely recommend getting one to all coffee lovers. No need for starbucks anymore.
We had one of these at work, and i fell in love. I bought one as a daily deal / refurbished model. It was the only way to get one in my price range. I am so glad i saw that deal and didn’t buy another model, because the coffee that this machine makes is fantastic. We use it for espresso, coffee, lattes and tea. We have had no problems with this unit. We maintain it with the manufacturers cleaning tablets and descaling tablets.
After two years of daily use, typically 10 cups, it’s still running excellent. After a couple minutes startup and rinse, for the rest of the day it will grind and brew a world class cup of coffee in about 1 minute.
We purchased this to replace our bunn machine in our office. It serves around 10-15 people daily and has been going non-stop. Great coffee, the problem now is i need one for home.
I bought this at c o s t c o o n s a l e for #1199. 99 but i took it back because my magnifica by delonghi is far better. I only wish there was a way to run direct water flow into these so the reservior is always full. The coffee bean chamber is pretty small too.
- Easy to use, great coffee and espresso
- the Jura makes great coffee!
- Beautiful and works great
Easy to use once you learn about the machine’s do’s and don’ts. Hot water spigot didn’t work upon setup but made great coffee/espresso. Customer service immediately sent a new machine with prepaid return postage for original unit without any questions.
Has worked perfectly and loyally for more than 7 years. The only issue is the manual frother which is flawed by design and pops out often. Otherwise excellent machine.
We had a gaggia for about 5 years that made good coffee but was loud, really loud, so we decided that the next machine had to be quiet and make great coffee. We have now had the jura j6 for 7 months and just love the machine; it is super-quiet and makes outstanding coffee (on the same level as what you get at a good coffee house). We did not buy the machine in amazon because they did not have the option to buy a refurbished machine, so we went elsewhere. The refurbished machine is about $1,000, a significant savings. The only difference is that you get a 1-year guarantee from jura. As others have said, the setup is simple. Contrary to what others have said, i did not find the top buttons confusing. You do have to read the manual. Cleaning the machine is also easy.
I never think that this coffee center was what it is, make incredible coffees every time. Great machine, great service, good price , prompt delivery. I am really happy with this, thank you.
This is the best investment we have made in an appliance in years. The machine makes excellent coffee and we won’t use anything else. However, after 6 months of owning the j6 capresso, the burr grinder stopped grinding the beans. The grinder would run but the beans would not feed into the grinder. We cleaned the machine several times and still did not work. By the way, we only use illy beans sold at sur la table. We did not use flavored or oily beans ever. We returned the machine and sur la table graciously exchanged it for a new j6 capresso. Last night the issue repeated itself and we returned it again to sur la table; however, they no longer carry the j6 and now just have a j9 for $1,000 more than the j6. Now we are stuck calling the manufacturer.

It is exactly what we wanted. Little smaller than we had that was built in at our previous kitchen but easy to fill, easy to clean an makes very good coffee.
The coffee even with regular coffee is far superior than from previous coffee-machines that we had previously. I like that it comes with a dvd explaining everything and all the kit that enables us to use it in many different ways (i. The grinder can be bypassed, so already ground coffee that you might not want to bin can be used up). Also, we like the different options for making a latte or cappucino.
I love the jura impressa j6 and have been using it at least twice a day for over two years. Pros:pulls the perfect espressomakes a great lattebrews good coffeeeverything is frothyautomatic cleaning cycleseasy to remove drip/grounds traystylish lookscons:not for causal coffee drinkersoutside gets dirty fastdoesn’t brew very hot coffeeshouldn’t use oily beansautomatic cleaning cyclesneeds filters and cleaning tabletscoffee is only ‘good’lots of rules to followagain, i love this machine. It’s made me an espresso snob and instead of helping me cut back on starbucks, i drink more coffee all the time. In my opinion, the jura impressa j6 brews the perfect espresso, every time. If that’s what you’ve been searching for, buy this machine now without giving it a second thought. If you’re primarily a coffee drinker, think twice. If you’ve never ground your own beans and store your favorite flavored pre-ground coffee in the freezer, stop reading now and look somewhere else. This is not the machine for you. At most, it makes two cups at a time, and compared to what you’re probably already drinking, it’s kinda weak and won’t brew you a full pot. It’s not for coffee drinkers that drown their drink in cream and sugar to get rid of that ‘bitter’ coffee taste.
Our 7 year-old f7 was accidentally knocked off the office kitchen counter and crashed on the floor. 🙁 i did my research and decided on this j6 model because it is made in switzerland, it has a good sized water reservoir, and has a lot of features to customize your coffee/espresso. It arrived on time and set-up went fairly smoothly. (i had to call jura for help during the initial steps and they walked me through what to do when their instruction manual didn’t help. They stayed on the phone with me and were very helpful. ) it looks really nice on the counter, not as boxy as the picture. It’s running perfectly and we are very happy with it.
Never going to starbucks again.
Folks, the jura capresso j6 is my fourth espresso machine, and without question, the very best. Most recently i’ve owned the la pavoni club combo and nuova simonelli’s oscar — good, durable machines, well made, and both operated successfully for about ten years. The jura, however, is light years ahead in every way: for starters, the machine design is beautiful, and the operation, once you master the basic buttons, is dead simple. One of my early favorite features is refilling the water tank — no more sliding bulky machines out from under cabinetry, or trying to refill reservoirs with a measuring cup or pitcher and spilling water. The jura’s side-mount, large reservoir can be removed and refilled in seconds. No more grinding and tamping coffee either — just put about 1/4 pound of beans in the jura’s hopper, close the lid, and off you go. I was up and running on the jura in about 20 minutes out of the box, sipping the best espresso, while perusing the handy online instruction manual. During the ‘warm-up’ period i pulled multiple espresso shots and the jura is very, very fast. I also made a few ‘americanos’ but to me the coffee was a bit weak, so i may try adjusting the grind a bit for a stronger cup.

I’ve had this machine for about a week, and bought it at my local sur le table store. This was my first automatic machine and i am still totally freaked out at how expensive they are. That being said, the machine makes amazing coffee. It’s also really cool to make tea and hot soup with the hot water feature. The machine works well overall (knock on wood) and i expect to keep getting amazing coffee for years to come. Update:i’ve now had the machine for two years and it is still going strong. Be sure to use the cleaning tablets regularly. I also have been using the filter (buying more at sur le table and sometimes on amazon). Except for the fact i put the wand in the garbage disposal once, oops.
This machine replaced a spidem divina. Although the divina made good coffee, it was very temperamental and required numerous calls for on the phone repair. The jura was twice the price and well worth it. We have not had one problem and love the coffee. I whole heartedly recommend this machine, you won’t be sorry. We purchased from a brick and mortar sur la table store. They said if there is ever any problem, just return and they would replace if they were unable to diagnose the problem. But, as i said, not one issue.
Due to the high price i checked many reviews on many sites and most brands had specific problems or limitations. The jura was consistently rated highly with few problems. When spending $1500+ i didn’t want a machine that was going to break down after a few months. I have now had this machine for about 6 months and have had no problems except a minor one explained below. First the goodvery easy set up. I was up and going in about 30 minutes after opening the box and making sure all the parts and pieces were included. The machine is pretty idiot proof. It tells you when to add water, when to add coffee beans, when to run the cleaning cycle, when to decalcify, and when to dispose the used grounds. The burr grinder is fairly quiet and has run without clogging. You do have to be careful not to use beans that are too oily but if they are all you have to do is let them sit for about 5 hours before using.
We have gone through 3 grind-and-brew style coffee makers in the last 3 years. They all stopped functioning or started leaking. Extensive research and $400 off the sticker price led me to the jura impressa j6. Less than ten minutes out of the box, we were enjoying the finest cup of coffee produced in our house. In the two weeks since that first cup, we are marveling at how spectacularly better a cup of coffee is when properly brewed. I had always thought if you kept your beans vacuum sealed up to the point of grinding, you were going to get the best cup of joe possible. Well, you can banish that thought forever. The j6 grinds the beans then tamps them right before brewing, and the flavor extraction is far beyond that of mortal brewers. Two design features make this the perfect purchase. 1 you can fill both the water tank and the bean receptacle without having to move the machine from under the cabinets.]
