Jura are regularly changing their offering. The Jura S8 is the first Jura machine offered in South Africa with a touch screen, rather than the models with buttons.
When the original Juras came out over a half a decade with screens, we asked Jura: “Why not touch screens?”. They answered that since the beverages being brewed were hot, and produced steam this would rendered the screen unreliable. Well now they seem to have solved that problem.
What else does the S8 have that the E8 sibling does not? Nothing really significant. It looks a little better to some (especially those that like the chrome), it has a touch screen and there are a few more programmable preparation methods. However the basics of the machine is the same.
We did a feature to feature comparison of the machines, read Jura S8 and E8 Comparison…
