Summary: I actually bought this for a friend who doesn't know how to use ebay and is sometimes even confused by the use of a ball point pen (ha). However, he uses his Jura everyday and he absolutley loves it. He says it makes the best coffee he has ever had and, it has to be easy to use, because he can operate it. Expensive unit yes, however, if you go to Starbucks twice a day as he does, the unit pays for itself in two years.
Summary: I had owned the Jura Z6 prior to getting the Z7. The Z7 is, in many ways, similar to the Z5/Z6—with just a few exceptions. The Z7 is much easier to keep clean and, by that, I mean that it may still have as many water, milk, coffee splashes on the front, but the matte aluminum front doesn't show it at much. The Z7's drip tray, I believe, is better designed and allows liquid to pass through better.
Pros: Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Great Taste, Large Water Container, Quick Brewing
Summary: I've owned the Impressa Z7 for 2 years and it's performed flawlessly every day. The negative reviews on here must be fake from jealous competitors, because this is I believe the best, easiest to use and own coffee machine on the market. It's expensive, but it's been worth it and you get what you pay for. Makes beautiful hot (you can control how hot) espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos with wonderfully textured foamed milk.
Summary: My husband bought this machine which I thought very expensive, however I have had more coffee than I ever had with our Gaggia machine. The espresso coffee I am assured by my daughter and husband is plenty hot enough. My husband drinks latte and I drink capuccino. I don't buy capuccino's out any more I wait till I get home. It sounds as though other people haven't set the temperature on the machine properly, any hotter and I would burn my mouth.
Summary: Despite reading the previous reviews, and with a great deal of trepidation, I bought one of the Z7 machines to upgrade my Jura C5 which is now in the office. So far I have found it to be exactly as I expected. It works well, it makes beautiful coffee, it's easy to use, and it has been no trouble at all in the six months or more that I've had the machine. For this reason I'm struggling to understand why the other reviewers are so down on the Z7?
Summary: I was talked into buying this machine by a rather good salesperson, extolling it's supposed advantages over other brands costing half as much or less. The machine could never produce a satisfyingly hot espresso, and it's ability to make milky coffee drinks such as lattes and capuccinos was even worse. Barely lukewarm at best, and never a good flavour.
Summary: i made a bad decision to buy this machine thinking that being made in Switzerland and being very expensive it had to be the best, well how wrong was I! The coffee produced is barely luke warm and the milk is cooler, the hot water is not hot at all and so the drink produced is awful. the cleaning of the fiddly bits, of which there are many takes longer than necessary for such an expensive 'automatic' machine.
Excerpt: Эту кофемашинку мне подарили на работе, хотя штука не из дешевых. В принципе я не был истинным ценителем кофе, но то что варит эта кофеварка имеет удивительный яркий нежный вкус кофе. В сравнении с моей, кофемашина у нас в офисе и рядом не стояла. При этом кофе готовиться нажатием одной кнопки, сама кофеварка легко разбирается и моется. С учетом того, что она может варить различный кофе, кофемашина сможет удовлетворить требования любого человека.
