For 60 years, JURA predominantly sold its wide range of domestic appliances in Switzerland. In 1991, a conscious shift was made toward automatic speciality coffee machines and an international stance. JURA developed into a global player and is now an innovation leader in over 50 countries.
Jura was founded in 1931 in Niederbuchsiten in the Swiss canton of Solothurn. This small village is located about halfway between Zurich and Berne, at the southern end of the Jura mountains. Indeed, these are the mountains after which the company is named.
All automatic specialty coffee machines are developed in Switzerland and produced in line with stringent Swiss quality standards. Striving for perfection is part and parcel of the way the workforce thinks at JURA and the company’s business partners. High-quality, robust and durable products are the result of their creativity.
The roasting process in what gives the coffee beans their delicious aroma. Coffee contains up to 1000 different aroma compounds, making it one of the most aromatic of all foods. Nature has given us the perfect packaging to preserve the flavour without any impediment: the coffee bean.
With a JURA automatic coffee machine, you can choose from the virtually unlimited selection of fresh coffee beans available, according to your taste. You can treat yourself to an exclusive roast from a delicatessen, sample a rare blend found on a trip abroad, or try a value product from your local supermarket. Our machines are designed to get the best out of any coffee bean and degree of roast.
JURA coffee machines can be programmed to suit specific requirements and the individual customer. From shops, offices and bed-and-breakfasts to catering for functions or business events, the range of specialty coffees can be adapted to suit the intended use and audience.. This is done with the help of intuitive programming and disable functions.
With a wide selection of accessories including a cup warmer, milk cooler, coffee grounds disposal function set, drip drain set and interface for accounting systems, as well as an attractive range of storage and presentation units, it is possible to create a complete coffee solution tailored to your specific requirements.

Treating our planet and its precious resources with respect has always been extremely important to JURA. That’s why our automatic specialty coffee machines come with innovative technologies and energy-saving modes to avoid unnecessary power consumption and actively save energy. Independent tests prove it. By preparing coffee fresh from fresh beans, you are also actively helping to reduce waste. The coffee grounds can easily be composted or used for fertilising plants.
During more than 20 years of developing automatic specialty coffee machines, JURA has come up with many innovative technologies that set new standards. These have been incorporated into the entire range and are now the fundamental ingredients for enjoying the perfect cup of coffee. Each machine contains the wealth of knowledge and experience of our engineers. Functions and components have become standards that will delight you with perfect coffee day-in, day-out, cup after cup, and pamper your palate.
To enjoy perfect specialty coffee at the touch of a button, it is necessary to have the latest technology operating behind the scenes. And, with JURA fully automatic coffee machines, this technology comes very much to the fore.
12.2% more aroma and consistently high grind quality over the entire service life are the defining features of the Professional Aroma Grinder. The perfected grinder geometry achieves the optimum grinding curve. A higher proportion of fine particles in the grounds guarantees that the flavours unfold to perfection.
The patented brewing unit with variable brewing chamber is the most important part of any JURA coffee machine. Thanks to its sophisticated design, it creates the perfect pressure and optimum brewing conditions for any amount of ground coffee between 5 and 16g. The Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System (I.P.B.A.S.) and the Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.), which optimizes the extraction time, work together to allow the flavours to fully unfold.
The innovative frothers were specially designed to crown specialty coffees with milk and milk foam. With revolutionary fine foam technology, they create a finely textured milk foam with a long-lasting consistency to professional barista standard. The milk is draw in, heated, and then frothed up with air inside the multi-chamber system. The result is a milk foam like no other, that caresses the palate and tongue and is ideal for decorating. Combined with superior quality coffee, this technology completely redefines the coffee experience. It’s a difference you can both see and taste.

We have always strived to treat our customers to perfect specialty coffees. The quality in the cup and energy efficiency have always been priorities for JURA.
Back in 1994, the first IMPRESSA from JURA was fitted with an automatic switch-off to avoid unnecessary energy consumption when not in use. Today, every JURA automatic coffee machine has an automatic switch-off and therefore clearly exceeds strict statutory EU requirements for energy consumption in standby mode. JURA has always used energy-saving thermoblocks. This technology enables us to efficiently reach the necessary coffee water temperature and steam temperature very quickly and at the same time to minimize energy losses if no product is request. Intelligent electronics effectively control the way in which the main energy sources interact and power is only used if actually needed.
To confirm its energy efficiency, JURA uses the DIN standard 18873-2. This standard describes the standardized measuring process for recording all relevant energy losses in commercial beverage machines.
The information gained in this way is used for continuous further development to make JURA automatic coffee machines even more energy efficient without impairing the quality in the cup.
Automatic coffee machines with a thermoblock need roughly the same amount of energy to prepare a coffee as machines with a boiler. All energy efficiency savings are therefore made when the machine is in idle mode. The measurement procedure dramatically illustrates how JURA’s automatic machines require much less power than those with a boiler. The detailed measurements are published at htpp://grosskuechen.cert.hki-online.de/en.
DIN 18873-2 standardizes the measuring process for recording the relevant energy losses from coffee machines. For example, it takes account of thermal loss in operating mode, energy losses in standby mode, and the amount of energy needed for hot water, e.g., for cleaning and rinsing, and for additional heating elements, lighting, etc. it does not take account of the ‘productive’ energy in the coffee itself because this has to be the same for all machines when using the same preparation temperature and amounts.
JURA is an industry leaser in the fully automatic coffee machine space. It is a brand that definitely should be considered by the consumer looking to purchase a fully automatic coffee machine. JURA is a reputable company which offers the latest technology, is built with high European standards, has a well organized and dependable service program and provides owners with years of coffee enjoyment.
