Summary: We love the coffee that this machine produces, but if you are 2 people drinking average 4-5 cups per day (or like us in the morning before work) then the water tank is definitely too small. I would recommend this machine for a one person coffee drinker.
Summary: I'm in an older house with a galley style kitchen. The clearance from my countertop to my cabinets is about 2 inches less than modern kitchens. This fits in nicely without eating up all my space. More importantly, it's a great machine. You can control the ounces for stronger coffee. I really like the preset Coffee, Cappuccino, Latte and Machiato. The form is nice and it gives you better than Starbucks quality.
Pros: easy to use easy to clean great coffee & express good price for this quality of machine fits nicely under cabinet
Cons: expensive cleaning tablets compact size makes for frequent refilling
Summary: if you don't need milk , this machine makes perfect delicious epic coffee. We like to do a shot of each Respreto + Espresso + Coffee Size in same cup = OMG Best Coffee Ever! Just use Light or Medium roast coffee and avoid all Dark / French Roast and you'll never need sugar or milk in your coffee again. That is the trick to milk-less and sugar-less coffee!
Summary: The Jura Ena Micro 1 is one of the most satisfying purchases I have made in years. While relatively expensive, it effortlessly makes an excellent cup of coffee. The biggest challenge I had in purchasing an espresso machine at my chosen price point was deciding between a simple automatic machine like the Jura and a manual machine with a built in milk steamer. I opted for the automatic route and probably drink twice as much coffee as a result.
Summary: My Jura Ena Micro 1 is a work of art. Besides making a truly great espresso or cup of coffee it could not be easier to use. I purchased mine after having a cup of coffee at my neighbor's home. It was the best coffee period. He swore by it and used Hawaiian Kona beans. Up to that time, I would go to Star$$$$$ to get the "best". This makes a better best cup. You even get a rich crema on top. Price is worth every penny.
Summary: PROS: * Delicious espresso / americano with bold flavor and perfect crema * Convenience, convenience, convenience! Heats up and brews within 2 minutes, at the push of a button. Turns off by itself. * No cleanup required except when prompted to empty the grinds/drip tray after x number of uses * Save $$$ by using your own espresso or coffee beans (no oily beans though!) * Small footprint fits in tight spaces * No frills or fancy computer controls...
Summary: I'm a coffee drinker and love my 2...or 3...or 4 Americanos every morning. I used to have a manual espresso machine but my laziness eventually won out and I got this ENA last year. I LOVE IT. Don't expect barista quality espresso but the coffee still tastes great. My only knock would be that it has to have water added and grounds emptied pretty regularly.
Summary: This machine makes amazingly good coffee. It does make some noise (the coffee grinder, and the water pump), but not too bad; bedroom door is 40 feet away, and my wife (a light sleeper) says it doesn't wake her up when I brew my coffee. Our first one did not work properly; there was some sort of problem with the pump not priming.
