Using the Jura Espresso Machine

Caution

  • One should not try to disassemble the machine
  • The appliance should not be put in a dishwasher neither should the individual parts

When Using the Jura Espresso Machine

When using the Jura espresso machine for the first time, decide whether to use the Blue filter cartridge. The hardness of the water should guide you on whether to use a filter cartridge. If the water is ten DH or more, then the blue filter cartridge should be used.

To determine the hardness, use the Aquadur test strip. Hold the strip in running water for around 1 second and then wait for 60 seconds. After sixty seconds, read water hardness based on the test strip instructions in the packaging. Do this by comparing the level of discoloration from the Aquador.

Preparing Coffee

The same way you will prepare coffee is the same way you will prepare your espresso. Once the machine is on, set it to coffee mode. The first step is to place a cup under the coffee spout. Turn the Rotary switch to “COFFEE” mode then press the Rotary Switch. When pressed, the brewing process starts and stops automatically.

Descaling the Water Tank

Descaling will help remove Lime scale deposits, and this will help in improving the efficiency of the machine. The first step is to remove the water tank and the Blue filter cartridge if available. Use a mild descaling agent to descale the tank. Rinse the tank thoroughly. Once rinsed, fill the tank with cold water and reinsert it back in the Jura espresso machine.
