We loved the little Ena 1, it was perfectly suited to low volume domestic use. And its replacement the Jura A1 is now a newer version. Significantly the A1 comes with the version 3 of the aroma grinder. And in addition the brewing unit has been updated to support the Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.®). Together these features make for a better cup of coffee.
While all the new features are a great addition, the same slim design has been retained. Probably the first real automatic coffee machine we consider to make the grade.
Note: Important to realise only the piano black machine is available in South Africa.

Add the free standing Jura free-standing automatic milk frother.
The frother is like most of the frothers on the market today; by spinning and stimulating the proteins the milk forms small bubbles that give the milk a cream like texture.
Easy to operate using a single button, it prepares cold, warm or hot milk foam.
