Jura Z8

Australian T3 - - HYPE -

$4,490, jura.com.au I think I’ve seen that ma­chine be­fore – in front of my lo­cal barista... They should be so lucky. The Jura Z8 is the lat­est ma­chine by the Swiss com­pany, fol­low­ing on from the Z6 and shares a lot of its clean, clas­sic lines that you’d ex­pect to see in a nicely-lit cafe. But there are some clever ad­di­tions here that will make you want to stay in for a cof­fee rather than head out­side. Do tell, as my lo­cal knows ex­actly how I like my morn­ing shot. It may be time to say bye-bye to your barista. From the 4.3” touch­screen you can choose from 21 dif­fer­ent cof­fee spe­cial­i­ties and 16 recipes, in­clud­ing the very Aus­tralian flat white, and have it pre­pared with a sense of show­man­ship. Am­ber- and white-coloured lights illuminate the cof­fee and milk pour­ing pro­cesses re­spec­tively, and the tem­per­a­ture of both the milk and the milk foam can be ad­justed in 10 in­cre­men­tal steps to have your cof­fee ‘just so’. I see – and so do my friends and fam­ily who are read­ing this. Good for them in that case, as you can store 21 profiles in the ma­chine, and an in­fi­nite amount us­ing the smart­phone app, mean­ing that your care­fully-crafted latte mac­chi­ato is dif­fer­ent to your im­pressed mate. What if I have es­pe­cially fussy friends? No stress, as cof­fees can have 10 dif­fer­ent lev­els of strength, and their favourite item will be with them in one touch. Sounds good. When’s it com­ing out? The Jura Z8 will be on sale from 1 Au­gust.
