The Jura J90 One Touch is easy to get to grips with right from the word ‘go.’ Its ingenious operating concept couldn’t be easier or more self explanatory: Use the Rotary Dial to choose the specialty coffee you want, press the button, sit back and savor the taste. It goes without saying that the one-touch automatic coffee machine prepares the full range from latte macchiato to ristretto at the touch of a button and without you having to move the cup. And Jura’s revolutionary fine foam technology ensures a unique fine, feather-light milk foam quality.
It’s no surprise that the coffee is excellent with any Jura model—and the J90 is no exception. It’s the successor to the J Series Impressa J9, which we use at PaceSetz. If you’ve seen the J9 before, then the J90 will look very familiar. With a few updates for aesthetics, this baby doesn’t grind whole beans, froth milk, and pull espresso shots, it tackles all this on its own—after a short 15 second warm up.
Equipped with innovative and user-friendly features, the Jura J90 provides a true bean-to-cup experience with high style. A large TFT display sits on the top front side of the machine. There, you’ll find 6 buttons to select the beverage you want. All it takes is a touch and you can enjoy trendy specialties such as a classic cappuccino with rich and creamy foam, a perfectly pulled espresso, or a deliciously produced pressure-brewed coffee.
With a new polished design and state-of-the-art benefits such as Jura’s revolutionary fine foam technology and the TFT display mentioned above (sometimes called an active-matrix LCD), you’ll soon be drinking coffee that fulfills your wildest dreams. We use our J9 to start our day, round off lunch, and spoil visitors. The J90 is every bit as good. Even better.
The cappuccino spout, which is height adjustable on a continuous scale, dispenses cappuccino and latte macchiato with glasses of up to 6 inches tall. We really like the J90’s automatic alerts for cleaning, filling the water tank, adding beans, and emptying the tray.
Equipped with innovative and user-friendly features, the Jura J90 provides a true bean-to-cup experience with high style.
Fully programmable for all coffees, frothing and hot water functions, the J90 lets you set temperature, volume and strength for each button. We find it super convenient that we can make one or two cups of coffee at a time—from ½ to 16 ounces. The Rotary Dial lets you override the strength and cup size during brewing without changing the programmed settings.
It doesn’t bother us that the J90 doesn’t have a built-in cup warmer. The thing is, we’ve tested machines with cup warmers on top and we find it more effective to put a little boiling water in our cup and then toss it out before extracting our espresso. It’s faster and the cup gets hotter.
The not so good
Regular uses of Jura’s cleaning products are necessary so that you don’t void the warranty. No cup warmer.
The bottom line
If you don’t have the time (or energy) to perfect your morning coffee, the J90 One Touch will do it for you. With a stainless steel-lined Thermoblock heating system, a 15 bar high-performance pump, and a large 70.3-ounce water capacity, the J90 makes easy work out of espresso based drinks and frothed milk drinks—with no down time. The J90 is a whole new experience for automatic (dare we say superautomatic) coffee machines. So to answer our headline question in one word—yes. If only the best will do, this machine is for you.
