While the Jura range is comprehensive, we have put together the Jura comparison table below, based on our recommendations. Planned use is the basis for the selection below.
Quaffee has over a decade of experience with Jura coffee machines. As a result, we only offer Jura and WMF automated machines. They are both superb automatic coffee makers, reliable and well supported in South Africa.
We also offer coffee independent rentals on Jura and WMF machines.
Note: The quality of coffee a coffee machine makes, is linked to the quality of the coffee used, read more about our range of coffee here…
Domestic / Small Office
|Tank and bean hopper, provide enough water and beans for daily domestic consumption. Micro 90 is for those that love milk in their coffee (but drink less than 5 cups a day). Read a technical comparison A1 vs Micro 90…||The E6/E8 is for the more demanding domestic user, or the office with less than 10 people, a larger tank (than the A1/90), and a large dose is on offer. The E6 is the recommended domestic machine; the E8 adds one-touch cappuccino and support for ground coffee. Read a technical comparison E6 vs E8…|

Office / Division
Executive home / office
|For up to 60 people in an office the WE8 does coffee and one touch milk based drinks. With a larger tank and bean hopper the X8 increases that to about 80 people per machine, and it makes 2 milk based drinks at once. View technical comparison WE8 vs X8…||The S8 adds good looks and easy of use to the mix, making it perfect in an executive home or office.|

As mentioned in the introduction, the machines we recommend are the ones we believe offer the best from Jura. Other machines in the range that we like (i.e. the WE6 which is not available in South Africa), and machines that many others recommend (like the Jura Xs9 now replaced by the X8) we feel do not offer the best from Jura.
You may also notice that we do not list the GIGA range. This range takes Jura into the playing field where WMF has been dominant for decades. And while in Europe, the USA and Australia this range come with full onsite serviceable backup, this is not the case in South Africa. For this reason, we recommend the WMF range instead, as the backup support in South Africa is onsite.
