Crew Review: Jura Impressa XS90 Commercial Superauto

While the Rancilio Egro ONE is at home on a large cruise liner, the Jura Impressa XS90 is best suited to an office environment — one that requires a large water tank, extra bean storage and just enough dregs and drip tray capacity to be dangerous.

Watch Gail as Kat bosses her around this superautomatic espresso machine — including the usual feature description and a demonstration of its one-touch cappuccino functionality.

    It looks to be a nice machine. One question I have is about it’s life span. With regular maintnace how long might I expect a machine like this to last before it might need to be replaced?

      In general, superautomatics have around 10 years of life, best case scenario — and that would likely involve some maintenance and/or part replacement at around 4/5 years. With the Jura machines, you always have to work with them (they don’t have certified centers and don’t sell parts) so that’s something to keep in mind in regard to keeping the machine alive.

    So would a gagia SA be a better choice? Do they have us repair sites, as well as parts avalibe if needed?
    And thank you for your quick replay.

      Gaggia’s service in the US is not recommended — it’s why we stopped carrying them. Probably the easiest repair story is Saeco (they sell parts, they have centers all over the US) and then DeLonghi.
