JURA's latest masterpiece delivers the perfect cup of coffee at the touch of a button

Despite having only been on the market for less than a week, the JURA J6 automatic coffee machine has people buzzing – and it’s not just from the delicious cups of coffee that it produces. Designed with a ‘no stone left unturned’ approach, the J6 is the latest in JURA’s highly coveted J Series and features innovative technology and design elements that revolutionise the experience of enjoying coffee at home or in the workplace.

Understanding that coffee is something that’s extremely personal, the J6 offers a plethora of customisation options to its users. Along with 13 individual drink settings – from a latte macchiato to cappuccino and almost everything in between at the touch of a button – you can adjust the strength and temperature of your coffee to suit, too.

Nestled in the heart of the J6’s sleek, contemporary design is an easy to navigate, large TFT display screen. Here, you can position and arrange your favourite coffee settings according to your preferences – you can even go a step further and rename your customised cups so that everyone has a special brew to call their own. 

With your settings in place, all that’s left to do is push the button and let the J6’s intuitive technology to do the work. Another exciting feature is the optional Smart Connect function, which allows you to control and program the J6 from your smartphone or tablet via the JURA app.

Rather than pods, the J6 uses either whole or ground coffee beans. Each time you select the coffee you want, the Aroma G3 grinder grinds just the right amount at twice the speed of previous models, using Pulse Extraction Process (PEP) technology to optimise the extraction time for ristretto and espresso by pulsing hot water at short intervals. The result is a stunning, full aroma that’s truly worth getting out of bed for, while fine foam technology makes it possible to create trend specialities that are totally Instagram worthy.

Plus, the use of whole or ground coffee beans is an environmentally friendly approach to at-home coffee making, eliminating the unnecessary waste that comes as a result of single-use aluminium and plastic pods.

Adding to its list of thoughtful and innovative features is the Intelligent Water System (I.W.S.) that automatically detects the water filter. After each use, the J6 will not only rinse itself before switching off, it will also alert you to “Fill water tank”, “Fill coffee beans” or “Empty drip tray” as required.

The JURA J6 is now available for purchase at Pacific Coffee, J-Select and Lane Crawford. With its exceptional minimalist design, state of the art technology and perfect and TÜV-certified hygiene, it’s no surprise that the JURA J6 is already the recipient of some of the world’s most prestigious awards, including the iF Product Design Award. It truly is Swiss precision at its finest.
