      If you find yourself order ‘extra hot’ milk drinks in a cafe, then go with a standard superauto, without one-touch autofrothing. I love the C5 for this purpose. If you like standard drink temperatures, then the one-touch models are a great choice …. and now you just need to decide how much programming you want; that’s really the only practical difference between the C9, S9, J9 and Z7.

        Thanks Kat! I have a J9 and love it!, just need a SIMILAR second unit less costly, refurb under $1000.00 which has more bang for the buck?

    WE’ll be getting in J6 refurbs that will be under $1k; also, Ena 5 refurbs. Or you could go with a new c5 for that budget.

    I’ve killed my Capresso E8 and am looking for another one. I can send it to jura and have it fixed for about $250, which I will do, but just in case, what do you think about the Saeco machines? They’re more reasonably priced, but does the coffee taste as good as Jura’s? It seems pretty unbeatable. The Saeco also seems easier to clean because it has removeable parts.

      I think for straight shots the Jura is the best, but prefer Saeco’s milk frothing functionality (either wands or one-touch) over Juras. So if you’re drinking more espresso-only drinks, stick with Jura … if you’d doing a lot of milk drinks, I’d go Saeco.
