Summary: we've had two jura super automatic espresso makers, the last was the z5. we had the z5 for 7 years and it finally died, so we hesitated about sending that one in or purchasing this one. so glad we went for it.
Summary: This is a VERY quiet machine, and while I haven't tried all the bells and whistles, it makes excellent coffee and espresso. I also like the fact it has a large water reservoir, and a large bean container. It's also quite attractive, and is small enough to fit under our kitchen counter.
Summary: Top price...bottom reliability. I have owned 6 Jura espresso makers. This is the most expensive and also the most unreliable. Electronics were consistently unreliable from day one. Water would not come through regularly for the espresso but would flow easily from the hot water spout.
Cons: does not work as well as the less expensive models
Summary: Replaced my Delonghi 3500 and so far it performs better than old machine. I like big water tank capacity, smart water usage, key assignments are handy. Produced very good milk based coffee drinks and creamy coffee. So far very satisfied and hope for many years of service
Summary: I purchased the Z7 to replace my S9 that broke after two years of daily use. I returned the S9 to Costco, got a full refund (Love that Costco return policy!), added $500 in, and got the Z7. It's a beautiful machine, much sleeker than the S9. Makes great coffee and espresso.
Summary: This is our 4th Jura machine over the years. Especially love this one's sleek, modern look. But best of all it makes delicious coffee, espresso, cappuccino, macchiatto, and other products by just touching buttons.
Pros: looks great easy to use makes great tasting products.
Summary: After using the machine for only three weeks the frothing attachment came off, apparently broken from using the spoon "wrench" when putting on a nipple during the cleaning process. Doing so, even gently because all parts are plastic, I would not recommend doing.
Summary: Previously, I owned a Jura Impressa J6 for almost three years. I currently use my Z7 least twice a day. This is my 3 month review. I love this machine. It's made me an espresso snob and instead of helping me cut back on Starbucks, I drink more coffee all the time.
Pros: pulls the perfect espresso! makes a superb latte brews great coffee everything is frothy automatic cleaning cycles stylish looks easy to clean exterior
Cons: not for causal coffee drinkers doesn't brew very hot coffee shouldn't use oily beans automatic cleaning cycles needs filters and cleaning tablets coffee is not its specialty lots of rules to follow
Summary: We have owned a Z7 for 7 + years, and have made well over 10,000 cappuccinos. This machine has been a workhorse. We are on our second rebuilt motor--a small cost compared to a new machine, and the customer service at Jura is the absolute best.
Pros: excellent coffee drinks; options for size/temp etc customer service machine quality
Cons: can get stuck in "cleaning" or "decalcifying" mode must use jura cleaning products--but work well
