Summary: I've owned 2 of these for many years. One at home, heavily used by my church's small group members and one at the office where I heavily use it and serve clients coffee. Here are my thoughts after 8 years of ownership: 1. Expensive, but worth it.
Summary: The machine is a 5 star machine. As purchased on Amazon, it was difficult to notice (we did not) that there was no coffee grind receptacle, no manual, has issues with decalcifying and the door was not easy to close.
Love this machine. It is the 2nd one we got as we gave the first one to a sister who can now give us great coffee when we visit!

Summary: It works beautifully and is a no hassles machine. Provides consistent, excellent expressos, (you can decide how many ounces each time), quickly, efficiently, and for as many people as you want. LOVE IT!!
Summary: In 2006 I invested in one of these (at $1000 its an investment) I had grown tired of paying Starbucks $5 per pop with tip for a latte. It has been in for service twice, once under warranty and once not under warranty. The machine was only gone for 7 days and the non-warranty service was $57.
Summary: I recently purchased a refurbished Jura E8 coffee maker and have found it to work perfectly. The coffee it makes tastes great though not quite hot enough for me. Machine cleans itself internally and produces superior coffee.
Summary: Pros: Great tasting Coffee (!!!) The exact right amount, any time of day. Easy maintenance. Very convenient. Cons: Pricy. Loud. Takes up more counter space than the average coffee maker. We have it for 6 months now, each and every cup of coffee is delightful!
