Coffee connoisseurs who enjoy the convenience of making cafe-quality coffee from home are probably familiar with the Jura brand. It's literally the Maserati of coffee and espresso machines. Today, we'll be reviewing the Jura Impresso F50 which as Jura standards go is a moderately priced machine with hugely broad appeal. Our Jura Impressa F50 review will cover the main features and most-appealing qualities of this highly-popular coffee machine.
To start, the Jura Impressa F50 is one of Jura's more affordable coffee and espresso machines. Keep in mind that Jura's mid-range machines still beat out most of its competitors when it comes to pure value. This machine can do it all from producing classic espresso and crema coffee to a luxurious cappuccino and smooth macchiato. It's a brilliantly designed machine that brings a wealth of customization options to the table. After considering all that it can do, we believe the price tag is more than justified.
Jura Impressa F50 review – What we liked the most
There are a wealth of impressive features that come with the Jura Impressa F50. Jura has always been known for providing convenience without sacrificing quality. The Impressa F50 continues this tradition with a one-touch coffee experience and a two-touch experience when it comes to a milk drink. Making something like a cappuccino requires more steps but is still fairly straightforward. This ease of use is especially valuable for first time buyers of high-end coffee and espresso machines.
This may sound minor, but one of the things we really appreciated about this model is the size of its grounds container. Most domestic espresso containers tend to hold 4-5 packets of grounds. The Jura Impressa F50 can hold around 15 making it suitable for a large home or small office.
The Jura Impressa F50 is actually a remake of the old Jura Impressa F7 from a few years back, which itself set new standards for creating a true “bean to cup” experience. Many Jura F7 owners tout how durable these machines have proven even after having produced well over 12,000 cups of coffee. The Jura Impressa F50 is no different.
Some of other notable features that are worth mentioning in this Jura Impresso F50 review are listed below.
- Two programmable aroma levels each with three coffee strengths
- Conical steel burr grinder
- Professional-grade thermoblock system
- Integrated Clearyl Blue water filter
- Auto-on and auto-off setting
- 64-ounce removable water container
- 8-ounce bean hopper
- Milk frother
The Impressa F50 also has an automatic grinder which is controlled by a rotary switch and LED text display. In comparison to the original F7, this model is a little quieter when grinding.
No Jura Impressa F50 Review would complete without mentioning its amazingly high-quality and sturdy construction. This amounts to a machine that's truly worth the investment. If you're going to invest this kind of money into a coffee machine, you'll want to make sure that it has a long shelf-life. I share the opinions of many Jura Impressa F50 owners when I say these machines are clearly built with longevity in mind.
Those looking to extract that perfectly individualized cup of coffee in ease need look no further than the Jura Impressa F50. As I mentioned before, Jura offers fancier models than this one that can do fancier things. However, we've found that the Jura Impressa F50 is a great fit for anyone looking to enter the realm of high-end coffee machines. If the price tag of this machine is out of your budget, consider buying Jura refurbished machines which come with factory warranties. A refurbished Jura Impressa F50 goes for around $799.00 as opposed to its listed price
