The Jura X8 coffee machine is an automatic coffee machine that offers the ability to do both a single and two cup options of every primary preparation method available via the Jura offering. You could say this machine replaces the Xs9 or Xj9 for almost the same price as the old Xs9.
The X8 is part of the Jura professional range, so this means it is suited to office and small canteen offerings. The chunky buttons make it is user-friendly to use. Add to that the option of being connected to a water system assists in a canteen setting.

Just a note the marketing material claims the machine makes a flat white. Jura makes a distinction between flat white and cappuccino by determining when the milk is added. Particularly a cappuccino for them is defined as milk first. While a flat white is described as a milk first beverage. We at Quaffee feel this is extending the definition a little too far.
The 2021 versions big upgrade is to the grinder. Jura state that the Professional Aroma grinder delivers 12.2% more aroma than the standard Jura aroma grinder.
We also sell the X8 with the milk fridge as a single offering, read more here: Jura X8 with 1-litre cool control and wireless connector.
