Crew Review: Jura Impressa F8

Jura Impressa F8Jura has been busy designing a lot of new machines, and this latest model is sure to impress all of your friends! The Jura Impressa F8 contains a mix of some of the best features from the brand’s new and older machines. However, in our opinion the nicest part about this machine is its software and all of the programmability it has.

One of our favorite settings on the Impressa F8 is the “Expert Mode,” which allows you to be the authority and change the settings (shot volume, shot strength, shot temperature and amount of milk used) for all the drinks that are programmed on the machine. Likewise, the F8 gives you the option of changing the volume of your shot once the machine starts to brew, allowing you to customize and play around with your drinks on the fly. Finally, the machine also has a counter so you can keep track of how many shot you’ve pulled and how many drinks you’ve made, and use that to help calculate when your machine is due for a cleaning.

Speaking of cleaning, while Jura doesn’t provide you with access to the brew unit, which is the case on all of their superautos, they do provide you with some pretty efficient automated cleaning tools. These tools can be found and accessed in the maintenance section of the machine’s programming. For instance, you can program the Jura Impressa F8 rinse both your coffee and milk system to ensure your machine doesn’t get gunked up with coffee residue or old milk.

The Jura Impressa F8 is ideal for someone with a lot of users in their home, such as roommates or large family, that enjoy making a variety of coffee drinks. While we wish Jura had incorporated a little more stainless steel into the casing of the machine, we like that it has features like a bypass doser and digital screen as well as a ton of functionality. Watch as Brendan and Gail play around with the settings for making a cappuccino on the Impressa F8, and attempt Gail’s famous superauto latte art.

  1. I have a delonghi now with manual frother. We like our lattes hot 160-180 f. Our machine is 7 years old and in need of replacing soon. Looking at the Jura f8 but worried the milk won’t froth hot enough, as this seems to be the general complaint with super automatics. Also want to enjoy a hot cup of coffee using different beans or hot tea, essentially removing the other coffee machine on the counter. How hot does this machine produce?
    Thank you for your time.

    1. Hello! Thanks for the question. When testing this machine we clocked the freshly brewed espresso temperature at 183°F while it was free flowing from the coffee spout. The average espresso temperature resting in a cup was approximately 176°F. While we were very impressed with the espresso temperature, the milk temperature leaves much to be desired (since you desire super hot milk!). When testing three separate samples of steamed and frothed milk, the average milk temperature came to approximately 127°F.

      In terms of brewing a standard cup of coffee, the Saeco Gran Baristo is the only super auto that has that ability. ( This machine also has a removable bean hopper so you can easily change up your bean selection.
