What drinks can the Jura Impressa f7 make?
One Touch Features:-
Programmable Drinks to make:-
Its one touch feature can be truly enticing and if you’re looking to buy a Jura coffee machine or any other espresso machine you could be wondering what the manufacturers mean when they say “one touch”. So let me explain here…
“No longer is it necessary to grind coffee beans, fill your metal pot, insert for pressurizing, all this is done for you by a one touch button without needing to move your cup at any time your making your espresso.”
Often super automatic machines can be advertised with this feature, although you will have to move your cup for the milk frothing, but with these machines you don’t need to move your cup, however with the f7 you will need to open and close the milk section, so it is 3 touches.
One of the most exciting things about f7 is that infuses your coffee grinds with water in the pot before pressurizing to brew; this ensures a great crème each time you push the button.
So for now.. Let’s review
Stainless Steel Vacuum Milk Thermal Container does not come with the Jura f7 like it does for the Jura c9 however it is is available as an additional accessory purchase.
How much Space will Jura Impressa F7 Take on my Bench Top?
Approx 11inches wide 14inches high and 17.5inches deep
“How to Use A Jura”
With one Touch milk feature you can program for :-
- Amount of milk froth you like
- How much coffee is going to go into your coffee
Example:- latte, cappuccino, double shot, single serve, how any ounces.
Once you have chosen you desired shot of coffee and how you like your milk, you make sure your water tank is filled. It will lift out so it is easy to fill over your sink tap.
Place coffee beans into the bean hopper shute or alternately the pre ground coffee shute. If you’re using whole coffee beans, it is important to set you coffee grind dial to fine for espresso and coarse for longer style coffee.
All Jura’s have a removable waste bucket for the coffee dregs which is usually emptied by pulling out the drip tray. It’s handy to empty the drip tray along with the coffee waste bucket at the same time. It will hold a considerable amount of coffee pats, you may be emptying the water tray more frequently than the brew bucket.
All during machines have an option to use a filter in the water tank. If you set the program to use the filter then you will not have to descale your machine.
However I must point out that if you have the filter turned off your machine will prompt you to descale. It is only when you have it programmed for filter that no descaling is not only necessary but no longer required.
If you need to use a cleaning tablet which is separate to descaling, your Jura will flash a light asking you to do so. You won’t have to worry about recording cleaning dates or anything, Jura will let you know when it is required in order to keep you machine working well.
How Does the Programming Work?
LED digits keep you informed with a real time view showing you exactly which task your machine is currently processing, so you can easily determine if your machine is making coffee, or cleaning and rinsing. Programmable for up to 16grams of coffee means it’s great for you if you like your coffee strong. If not you just program for it to use less coffee.
Further Jura F7 Review
Finds 4 different programmable coffee strength levels, making it easy to switch from latter, cappuccino, ristretto or anything hot or cold drinks you like.
The Zero Energy Switch saver automatically turns off when on standby, it saves you a lot of electricity. You can also program 3 hot water temperatures. You’re using a combination of 2 rotary dials for selection and programming for your Jura f7
The concealed water tank on both machines is at the back with a capacity to hold 63.6 oz, so you won’t need to be refilling all the time. It is a lift out job easily fills at the sink with water filter which can be taken out for replacement. This minimizes the need for frequent descaling which in my book is just another job on the list I can feel good about eliminating for more fun things, as I am sure we can all relate.
Fits Any Size Glass or Cup
The Adjustable spout height for espresso moves easily on both machines to fit shot glasses for macchiato or even long coffee in large mug size or taller glasses. There are no fiddly gadgets to adjust the height just a simple manual press of the finger shifting the spouts either up or down.
Freedom to Choose Ground or Pre Ground Coffee Beans
Yes you are free to choose either pre ground coffee beans or whole coffee beans. This is a handy feature which gives you more choices on taste and price when buying your coffee.
For instance my local cafe has a pre ground coffee blend that I love, it is their special mix and they only sell the pre ground version.
|“I am happy I can enjoy my favorite ground coffee blends“|
The other reason I like this feature is because I can take advantage of ground coffee specials at the supermarket if I choose.
It just gives me a little more freedom with coffee choices when I know I can use either whole coffee beans or pre ground coffee bean mix flavours.
Which Grind Size?
If I use whole coffee beans I have the choice of 6 different grinds, from fine to coarse…and I don’t have to program the machine for this is easy to choose the time of filling the coffee bean container. I like this unique feature because it means I don’t have to remember or program to any digitize selections to do this. It is a finer grind for cappuchinos and a coarser grind for long milk based drinks.
Jura Coffee Machine:- How to Clean
After you finished making your espresso coffee you coffee grinds dispense into a container at the back of the machine. This is a very easy system for cleaning. You pull out your drip tray to clean and just behind it the container of dispensed coffee pats… I call them pates because the stick together like little cow pats in a field.
It will hold about 16 brews of coffee before it is necessary to empty. The water that the machine puts out goes into the drip tray, so you empty that out.
Some super automatic machines have a brewing unit that you take out of the machine and rinse clean, however in this Jura machine it is not removable thus a little different.
Your machine will tell you when it needs a push button clean or just clean automatically rinsing after each espresso. If you are using the recommended CLARIS filter cartridges in the water tank it will reduce the need for regular descaling.
The milk section of the machine cleans on auto for f7 .When needed the machine tells you to use a cleaning tablet in the back section of the machine.
This machine constantly cleans and rinses itself; it can be a little unpredictable. You need to leave a jug under the spout if you leave on the machine, even if you not using the machine. There is no, need to be cleaning up or washing as you make your espresso or milk based drinks because the machine does its cleaning for you. For cleanup it is just a matter of cleaning out the drip tray frequently and emptying the used coffee grinds, but it does allow you to make a lot of coffee before emptying.
This machine uses a thermo block heating system and 15 bar pressure, commonly found it most automatic espresso machines. The f7 has a quality grinding unit which is quiet due to the cutting angle within the grinding cone.
