Summary: We got this as a birthday gift for my husband. HE LOVES IT!! It's very simple to use (it couldn't be simpler) and it makes amazing espresso!! we purchased the cinammon dolce syrup (starbucks) and we make the cinnamon dolce lattes at home now, as well as the white mochas... This is definitely worth every penny! We are very happy with our purchase!
Summary: My second Jura. Previously I had the larger J5, but bought the Ena because of limited space and a smaller household. But it hold up well compared to a machine that cost 50% more! Yes, it takes some reading, but if makes a fine cup of coffee, and excellent automatic lattes. Having had the J5 with the non-automated lattes, the Ena is a nice touch-and-go option! It entirely does away with the need to hit a Starbucks.
Summary: Because of the excellent performance of our six year old ENA 4, we upgraded to the ENA 9, moving the 4 to our vacation home. I continue to be amazed with the consistency, durability, and intelligence they've built into the design. It keeps making great espresso after great espresso. We've had a couple different machines before the Ena 4 and spent hundreds of dollars on repairs. Even worse, we were without a machine for days at time while it was being fixed.
Summary: Amazing machine, amazing price. This is my 2nd jura and was half the cost of my first one (double spout and steamer)but of the same amazing quality. I don't miss the steamer (didn't use it when I had it. Very easy to setup, easy to use, not to mention compact. It makes an amazing cup of espresso. Perfect shot. Ristretto mode is great for a lite/quick pick me up. Anyway do yourself a favor and buy this and start drinking clean espresso.
Summary: This is my second Jura. I've had it for about three months now. It works great for a small family. Great tasting coffee, perfect temperature, easy to make late, etc. At first the display and instructions are a bit confusing but once you get used to it, it is actually very easy to work with.
