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. Still, it is remarkably easy to use, makes excellent coffee and is adjsutable as to the volume and strength.
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: 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. I would recommend this machine to those who enjoy a really good cup of 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! Had a problem twice, Customer Service/Phone support) is not great (long wait, call back...) but fixed the problems. This machine replaced a long line of various "De'Longhi" coffee makers.
Summary: We have had one of these for a number of years. I would rate the quality of coffee HIGH and the convenience HIGH, but the quality of the machine LOW. We have had to send it in once for "refurbishing" which cost about $250. Less than 6 months after that the grinder motor completely burned out, sending smoke and sparks and burned bushing/insulation smell wafting into the air.

Summary: Several years ago I traveled to Germany on business, and everywhere I went I encountered "superautomatic" coffee machines which ground the coffee and then brewed a single cup using high pressure. Before then, I didn't know the word "crema", but I soon learned it and, when I returned home, told my wife, wistfully, of the great coffee I had had in office break rooms, hotel restaurants and more. She replied, "Well, why don't you buy one?
