Amazon.com Review

Satisfy a roomful of guests calling for caffeine with the Jura-Capresso Impressa S9, the luxury automobile of home espresso centers. Both beautiful and powerful, the machine grinds, tamps, and brews delicious shots of espresso in 50 seconds and steams or froths milk without a wait. It's built with a dual 1250-watt ThermoBlock heating system, a forceful 18-bar power pump, and a distinctive emphasis on choice. You can steam milk manually or automatically, make drinks with or without foam, and grind for light or dark roasts. You can tailor your drinks' strength (5 to 16 g of coffee), size (1/2 to 16 ounces), and temperature (regular or high). You can even adjust the machine for water hardness, raise and lower the coffee spout, and regulate the separate hot water spigot.

Backing these options is a professional-grade, solid steel conical burr grinder with six settings and an aroma-saving design. A pre-infusion cycle conditions grounds for maximum flavor and the CLARIS water filter removes impurities for improved taste. The S9 also includes an illuminated coffee area, cup-heating deck, separate funnel for pre-ground coffee, and automatic indicators on the water tank, grounds hopper, and filter cartridge. The bean reservoir holds 10 ounces--enough for 40 shots--and the water tank holds 96 ounces. The unit also features auto shut-off, auto-on, self-rinse, and self-cleaning. The programmable control panel uses a two-line display with simple instructions in seven languages.

With its dual-tone bronze finish and chrome accents, the Impressa S9 is undoubtedly a looker. It is also designed to fit under kitchen cabinets, measuring 14 by 14 by 15-1/4 inches with a retractable power cord. Jura-Capresso includes an instructional booklet, video, and CD-ROM, plus a full one-year warranty for home use and a six-month one for offices. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars At last: the coffee achiever's dream machine!
Setting up the Jura was simple, taking about 10 minutes. After adjusting the grind setting and quantity of ground coffee per cup, we had flawless espresso shots in less than 30 seconds each, with the creamiest, most flavorful crema. The espresso non-drinkers in the house can have their "regular" coffee by pressing the "Special coffee" button, which dispenses up to 16 ounces of coffee at a time. Great for the big "go-cup". I set the Jura to power on at 5 am, and trust me, at that time of the morning I am in no shape to grind beans, measure coffee and fill water tanks. Now, all that's history. All I do is press a single button to run the rinse cycle, press a button for either a single or double shot, and in no time, I get the most flavorful, richest espresso I have ever had. We bought our machine at a local retailer, where we were told that they can't keep the machines in stock. I totally understand why.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of the best, BMW of Espresso Machines
If there is such a thing as the BMW 750 of coffee machines, this is it! A beautifully enginered machine that produces professional results every time. I have had earlier versions of this flawless coffee maker, but this really delivers better coffee than most coffee stores. Cappuccino, Latte, Double Espresso is produced perfectly. Others in our family use it to produce hot water for tea, soup mixes, cocoa, but one may preprogram this for several personal choices of coffee brewing and it comes out perfect every time. I really like this machine!

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome
If you like all types of coffee and complete ease of use, you will be thrilled with this machine. It has been & is used a lot! It tells you exactly what to do and when to do it in order to keep in it top condition. I thought my husband was nuts when he spent so much money for a coffee maker for my birthday, but after 3 years of almost continual use, I can't imagine using anything else. Everything about it is easy, easy, easy. The coffee is hot & consistently great tasting, it is fast, and the Capresso machine is super easy to clean. Friends come over just for the coffee. Whether you need one cup or two, whether you use beans, ground coffee, use frothed milk, and/or steam, whether you use a large cup & your husband uses a smaller one, the Capresso machine easily adjusts with each cup. Minor issue -- I'm not in love with the manual. It's not hard to use, it's just not great. I think it could be laid out a tad better. The video that came with our Capresso made up for that. It's the perfect coffee center for anyone who is very discriminating in their coffee taste.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great coffee - Be aware of long-term maintenance costs
I purchased this machine's predecessor, the Jura S90, about 4 years ago. Since no one's owned an S9 for that long, it's hard to say for certain what the maintenance costs for the S9 will be, but I thought those considering buying it might appreciate knowing that it will likely require a certain amount of annual or biennial maintenance.

The S90 has one part that needs replacing after approximately every 2000 shots, which in my house means about once every 18 months. There are also seals and similar parts that again will need service periodically. This machine appears to be mechanically very similar to the S90, so it will likely have similar maintenance characteristics.

Over the last 4 years, I've had the machine serviced twice by Jura, and once by a local repairman. The cost of repairs was around two hundred dollars including parts each time... My front panel switches are also starting to misbehave, though, so the next repair may be more expensive.

This machine costs enough (and is good enough) to be worth repairing, but if you're expecting a machine to last the ages without any repairs, you'll likely be disappointed.

I can't really fault the machine for needing periodic maintenance, though. You could get a commercial machine with heavy-duty parts for 2-3 times the price, and that would need periodic maintenance, too (though the parts would last longer). Just be aware that by buying a high end machine, you've moved out of the "disposable" machine range and into the "pay to fix it" range. "Never needs fixing" doesn't exist.

As to the quality of the coffee, I've tried this one, and the quality is the best I've tasted from a super-automatic.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful Hint
A couple of previous reviews complained about blockages that quickly developed in their machines. I had the same problem after less than a month of use, where the brewed coffee would drip out very slowly, threatening to cease altogether. I told my wife she should return the machine, but she called Jura's customer service number, which is printed on the cover of the instruction booklet. The representative gave her a fix which is not mentioned in the troubleshooting section of the manual. It's difficult to describe, but it involves removing the grounds tray, poking a finger up through the chute and finding damp grounds that are stuck by a screen there. They can be wiped away with a paper towel and that should clear up the problem.
Otherwise, I recommend reading fhimas88888888's review for realistic advice, especially about the lifespan of a machine. This is my second super-automatic espresso machine, as a Saeco awaits repairs before becoming an office machine for my wife. They make very good coffee and espresso with relative ease and convenience. They're also great conversation pieces, although by now I find it tedious to demonstrate the machine for awed guests. If you love espresso, lattes, etc., the price of a super-automatic machine is worth it, although you can find one for less than half the cost of this Jura. I give the machine four stars because I wouldn't want to live without it, but I'm withholding a fifth star because I suspect competing machines are virtually as good. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Employing a stainless-steel vacuum carafe instead of a warmingplate, this 1,200-watt coffeemaker brews up to ten 5-ounce cups in just8 minutes for maximum flavor and aroma, and the carafe then keeps thecoffee hot for 4 hours. The carafe prevents coffee from turning bitter,as it can when sitting on a warming plate, and doesn't have to remainwith the machine for coffee to stay hot. To reduce calcification,Capresso's stainless-steel ThermoBlock system prevents water fromcontacting aluminum inside the machine. Other features: a digital,programmable, 24-hour clock/timer that makes it possible to have coffeeready in the morning; an automatic pause when the carafe is removedduring the brewing process for a quick pour; a charcoal water filter toremove up to 83 percent of the chlorine in tap water; an electronicindicator to show when the water filter needs replacing; a setting forbrewing three to five cups without diluting flavor and aroma; apermanent Gold Tone filter; automatic shutoff after brewing; anexternal water-level indicator; and concealed cord storage.

With a polished, extruded-aluminum body and plastic accents, themachine looks great on the counter. It measures 9-3/4 inches wide,13-3/4 inches high, and 10 inches deep, weighs 7 pounds, and carries aone-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great coffee, subpar design
I went with 3 stars because of price and design. It is better than 3, but I can't bring myself to call it 4. 3.5 is very fair. The coffee that this machine brews is far superior to any machine I have owned. It easily rivals coffee house machines. However, the carafe was poorly designed and the price tag is way too steep. I won't return it, but I retain the right gripe a bit.

PROS:

- Coffee taste is INCREDIBLE! Unmatched by any home machine I know of.

- Coffee is brewed hot. That is a fact. Do not let bad reviews about temp scare you. This machine brews hot.

- Coffee remains hot. Again, don't be scared. I don't pre-heat the carafe. The hot water heats it fast and since steel is a conductor, the carafe warms quickly. FWIW, I dumped a couple cups this morning after they sat all night. I kid you not when I say if you take it black, the temperature was still passable.


- It extracts max flavor from the grinds, therefore less coffee is required.

- The keypad is easy to use and understand. The cord compartment is very handy.

CONS:
- One hundred and sixty bucks is too much money. First off, the whole machine is not stainless steel. There is a lot plastic and fake steel. The brew technology is good, but there is no way on earth this machine is worth more than 2x a Braun 180. The coffee is a bit better, but you really have to be a fanatic to taste it.

- The carafe is TERRIBLY designed in the way it receives the brew. YES, YOU WILL HAVE COFFEE POUR ALL OVER YOUR KITCHEN IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL! The entry hole is too small. You can set the carafe in place and it will still overflow. It needs to be set PERFECTLY. The lips should be bigger by about 1/4" to prevent spillage. In fact, I feel this lid should be recalled. It is that bad. Exercise caution and you will be fine, but always be aware. Sometimes the ball sticks so even if it is lined up perfectly, it will still overflow. Make sure the green ball is moving before putting the lid on the pot. Use the tip of a knife to jar it loose if it is stuck.

- The lack of a removable water resovoir is inexcusable at this level. The machine is a little on the heavy side and doesn't slide easily, plus you hide the cord. A removable water resovoir would have been great.

- The carafe does pour slow. Make sure the dot is over the spout for best performance. Turning it past the spout only slows it further, it doesn't make the opening bigger! If it gets annoying, remove the lid, pour normal, then replace the lid.

This review may sound negative, but it isn't. Again, the coffee quality is unmatched. However, you do need to put up with mind-bogglingly dumb engineering and tiny quirks. But, like that lawnmower that only you know how to start, this is a machine you'll grow to love as you figure out how to control it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Coffeemaker
When it became clear that our 10 year old Krups coffee maker was on its last legs, I began researching thermal carafe coffee makers. I'm not much of a coffee drinker myself, but my husband cannot stand "burnt," or lukewarm coffee. Also, we often brewed partial pots, so the product we chose had to brew good coffee in the 3-5 cup range. The Capresso was the only product that met our requirements. Several other contenders in the same price range brewed lousy "mini" pots even when their other qualities seemed equal. Our Capresso arrived in time for our Thanksgiving company. All the regular coffee drinkers commented on the excellent coffee. I had a cup and there was none of the nasty after taste that I thought all coffee had. I may become a coffee drinker after all! I have always pre-heated the carafe with hot water before brewing and the coffee is very hot and stays that way for hours. You must remember to close the carafe after pouring a cup of coffee. I think the carafe is easy to use, the coffee is easy to brew and the machine is very well designed. It makes great small pots as well as whole pots of coffee. The only reason I didn't give this coffee maker a 5 star rating is because it is hard to clean. The pot is NOT immersible, not are you supposed to put it under running water. I am very small and have little hands and cannot get my hand inside the pot to clean it. The instructions recommend using a brush. So, I'll need to buy a soft brush to clean the inside of the pot. If the opening were a tiny bit larger, I could at least get my hand and a sponge in there! Still, it's a minor inconvenience for an otherwise excellent, and beautiful machine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top price niche, but worth every penny for coffee lovers
I've had Braun and Krups makers before, but my Krups went kaput and I wanted something a little better for preparing a variety of fine Arabica coffees, from Antigua types like Kona to rich Indonesian varieties, to their best. (I was raised in Mexico, where for candy I sucked on coffee cherries, not candies.) The reviews here seemed a bit mixed, but after some research, I bit the bullet and bought the machine.

I have had the Capresso 440 for six months, so I feel I can comment now... and I am very impressed! It prepares excellent coffee, in large or small batches (there is a selector switch), has a permanent goldtone filter (you can buy paper filters -preferably unbleached - if you prefer,) coffee comes out above 165 F / 74C, and it stays warm at least a couple of hours; the coffee-maker is easy to program, set up and clean. It even looks good, though my prime criterion is always the quality of the coffee produced.

One small thing I improved on was the small black dot on the top of the black lid used to open / close the opening to the spout - I used a dot of yellow acrylic paint to make it more visible, and it makes a significant difference. Two things I think could be improved on - the fill indicator float-ball-in-column is on the right side, ecessed, and the design of the machine makes it a bit difficult to see in the darkish corner of my kitchen counter; and of course, a lower price would please everyone. These are relatively minor - the Capresso, made by a company that makes upper end machines for professional baristas, is a high-quality coffee-making machine that's sure to please aficionados of good coffees.

If you can't program your VCR or radio-alarm, demand piping hot coffee that blisters the mouth, or prepare cheaper Robusta coffees like Farmer Bros., forget this machine - save your money and get a Mr. Coffee. If you prefer espresso types, Capresso makes machines that do that, you won't be satsified here. To each, according their own taste...

But if you enjoy fine Arabicas properly prepared, without the unhealthy effects of plunge / press makers, and a machine that is easy to use and seems substantial enough to last, I think you will be very happy with the Capresso.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple, reliable and tasty
After reading some of the other reviews, I was concerned about (1) how effective the carafe was at keeping the coffee hot and (2) whether the coffee would leak outside the carafe as it was being brewed.

Four hours after brewing, the coffee was still hot and ready to drink. I closed the pouring spout, and perhaps having it open would cause the coffee to cool more quickly. No complaints here.

I've made several dozen cups and have yet to have a drop drizzle outside the carafe while brewing. I'm not being extra careful when I place the carafe either. If you hang it off the side of the base, I imagine it would spill, but then anything that doesn't have the wide open mouth would.

As for the taste - using freshly ground beans - my wife thinks I've found the "secret" to making great coffee. (I don't drink it myself) And she's very picky about her coffee. The taste was as good whether I was making 5 cups or 10.

Cleanup is a snap and there are little things that make it better - the top to the filter box stays in place, even if you only raise it part way.

It looks VERY sleek on the kitchen counter - an art piece. It is expensive, but my wife is happy and as they say in the commercial - priceless.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great coffee maker - poor coffee keeper
The comments below are based on 3 months of daily use.

This is a great coffee maker. It's a shame the carafe (the keeper) isn't as capable as the rest of the machine. For the price, I would expect a well-designed carafe that would keep the coffee hot for at least 2 hours. In reality, if you don't drink it within the first hour, serious heat loss will keep you from fully enjoying the great coffee the brewer produces.

The flaw seems simple enough - poor carafe insulation. You can quickly feel heat on the outside of the carafe after making a fresh pot (if you can feel it on the outside, it's gone from the inside). I would also like to see the carafe with a more clearly marked top (pouring position), larger lid tabs to make it easier to open, and an improved pour flow rate (pretty slow). ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

By eliminating the usual fuss and mess, this 1,200-watt machine makes it easy to brew espresso and make cappuccinos and lattes at home or in the office. It's semiautomatic because all that's required is to fill the water tank, place ground coffee into a receptacle, and pull a lever. Within seconds coffee flows from the double spout, which adjusts for different cup heights, into one or two cups. No tamping is required because the machine tamps the coffee precisely and automatically. Nor is it necessary to clean used coffee grounds out of a messy filter holder, because there is no filter holder, and the machine automatically discards grounds into a waste tray. The tray also catches overflows, and a light shows when it needs emptying.

For steaming and frothing milk to make cappuccinos, lattes, and hot chocolates and for delivering hot water for tea, there's a wand that rotates out to fit inside a pitcher or cup. The coffee receptacle accepts 7 to 15 grams (one or two fillings of the included scoop), and the powerful pump supplies enough hot water each time to fill cups from 1-1/2 ounces to 12 ounces, which means it will make a big mug of regular coffee as well as an espresso. The 53-ounce water tank is transparent for water-level monitoring. Water heats quickly thanks to the 1,200-watt heating coil, and a thermostat light shows when the water is hottest. The machine has internal storage for the power cord and comes with clear instructions, drink recipes, and a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 8 months and going strong.
Lots of reviews on how the Ultima performed in the first few rounds, so I though I would add my 2 cents on "longer term" performance.

This machine is dangerous. Dangerously addictive, that is. If you love espresso based drinks, you WILL feel like making a cup after every meal to accompany your dessert. And then the morning pre-breakfast cup and the afternoon one with an almond-hazelnut double-chocolate biscotti. Control, control...

It is super easy to make a drink, and not tamping and cleaning after each cup is a god-send. You have to try a non-automatic and know what a chore those tasks are to appreciate the simple advantages and joys of this semi-auto baby.

And the taste - ah, beautiful. For all of you living around a Trader Joe's store, I highly recommend the Roma Coffee Beans - less than 20 cents a cup gets you a coffee that rivals some of the best in Roma.

Hope it keeps running for along time, but it has served me and my guests well for over 8 months.

Cheers!

5-0 out of 5 stars I could not be happier with this machine
I am an engineer, and fairly demanding when it comes to product design. I could not be happier with this product for the money. It's fast: you turn it on and by the time you have scooped the coffee in, it's heated up and ready to go. It is amazingly easy to use: you turn a lever and scoop coffee in, turn the lever again and turn it on. It's about as simple to use as a Mr. Coffee machine once you use it once or twice, but it looks complicated at first and my somewhat lazy coworkers still go to the coffee shop rather than plan ahead and buy coffee and milk. It usually froths milk wonderfully. The coffee, cappucino, and espressos I've made taste as good as anything I've gotten from a coffee shop. As others have said, grind the coffee halfway between an espresso grind and a drip cofee grind and you'll be fine.

If you are buying this for an office like I did, it is noisier than a Mr. Cofee machine, it's probably on par with the noise from a dishwasher: it's fine for a lunchroom or a file room where a door can be closed, but I wouldn't recommend it in an open area in which people work. For home use, it should be OK.

Where this product really shines is the cleanup. It really takes very little time to keep this unit clean, which was my biggest fear when buying one. I wipe the frother (the spout where the steam comes out) with a sponge after each use (takes all of 5 seconds). After 5-6 uses, a light comes on telling you to pour out the used coffee grinds, which takes all of 10 seconds. After about 10 uses, I remove the top, rinse it in the sink, wipe down the exposed inside, and then rerinse the removed top. During this time, I soak the frother and then reinstall everything back into place. It sounds complicated, but it isn't, and it takes about a minute or two per week. You'll save more than that even if you work next door to a coffee shop.

This is my first cappucino machine, and I've had it for over a year and use it twice each workday. I'm really happy with it and would recommend it to anyone interested in a cappuccino machine at this price point. It's a consumer product, not a $700 industrial-grade machine you can expect to smash around, but it's priced accordingly and the ease of use and quality of coffees it produces makes it a real value. It allows me to use water-process decaffinated coffee that no coffee shop will use because it doesn't taste as good as standard decaf, but doesn't have the chemicals that I don't want. And, it's much faster than going to the coffee shop, which in my case, is only 3 doors from my office building. And when it is raining out, who wants to walk even 3 doors away to a coffee shop?

I had some complaints, but they really had more to do with my inexperience. Now that I have had the thing for a year I upped my rating to 5 stars from 4. 2 double-size cappuccinos per day x 200 work days x $3 = $1200. The $300 it costs, plus $150 in coffee I've spent (Peets most expensive blend) + $50 in milk means I've saved $700 in the first year, and a whole lot of time. After a year of use, it still works perfectly, but if it broke tomorrow, I'd buy another one.

5-0 out of 5 stars love it
This machine makes *great* espresso and crema and is very easy to operate (after taking 5-10 minutes to review the directions). It is wonderful when making several cups at a time as the used grounds are automatically dumped into a hidden reservoir which reduces time and clean-up between brews.

I have only noticed problems with coffee temperature if I use the steamer first, then switch to coffee mode. Otherwise, coffee temps are perfect. I have not found a grind that is too fine for this machine, and it seems the finer the grind, the better the flavor.

My only real beef is that condensation collects in the coffee chute, so some of the grounds get stuck on the way to the brew chamber.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great warm espresso maker
I have had my Capresso Ultima since Christmas and use it everyday to make at least two lattes. Many of the above reviews expound its virtues and I agree with all of them. The only real fault I have found is the temperature of the espresso. I have found that I need to warm the finished product in the microwave as what comes out is only warm. I also have emailed the company about this on two occasions and have received no response.

5-0 out of 5 stars Over 5,000 espresso served and still going...
I bought this machine in Europe almost 2 years ago for work and every morning we all use this machine to make our morning espresso. Because we share the cost, we are still counting how many cups are made, and we are now well over 5,000 espressos. And still no problem at all with this heavily used machine !
On the downside, the coffee is not really hot. Some people prefer to put it in the microwave for a minute. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This superautomatic is super!
This Jura Capresso S7 was a big investment but was worth it. It makes great coffee right out of the box with the factory presets. If you find you need to tweek it, the amount of coffe, amount of water, and fineness of the grind are all programmable by the user.
The unit is basically cube shaped. It has a matte black finish with silver colored accents. The coffee/hotwater spouts move up and down and raise high enough to even allow my giant morning mug underneath. The S7 can be programmed to turn on automatically in the morning (or whenever), but it heats up so quickly that turning it on after I wake up works just fine.
Cleanup is amazingly simple. The fact that the brew group never has to be removed really keeps upkeep to a minimum. I like the fact that by using the Claris water filter I never have to think about the hardness of my water and decalcifying the machine.
The unit comes with alot of documentation as well as a setup video and informational CD. Watch the video, then have the manual handy when you setup and getting up and running will be a cinch.
Personally I ran a few more rinse cycles, and a few extra test cups of coffee than the instructions suggest but is just my own little ritual when setting up a new coffee maker.
I like my coffee to be strong and hot. I was concerned that a superautomatic would not be able to come up to my standards but the S7 surely does. The machine is top notch.
I'm happy to say the Capresso service department seems to be top notch too. Through a mistake that I caused, I had to call Capresso customer service and was wonderfully impressed. Not only did I get right through to a human, she was extremely helpful (proactive even!) and solved the issue on the spot.
Just beware that getting this machine may really increase your coffee consumption. It is so easy and fun to use, you want a cup everytime you pass it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

This two-in-one, fully loaded, programmable espresso/cappuccino/digital coffee machine makes such good coffee, it will put your local coffee shop to shame. The ThermoCoil feature has the world's fastest heat-up time of 50 seconds (for those of you who can't wait for that mouthful of java) and a low-noise, 18-bar pump pressure that makes thick, full-bodied crema espresso. The milk frother has two settings for steaming and frothing milk, and a three-minute, continuous-power steam release. The memory feature recalls the size of your espresso cup, and two preset cup sizes prevent overflows.

The CapressoBar also boasts a programmable timer, an LED clock, and a soft-touch illuminated operating panel and two-hour safety shutoff for both units. This machine does a remarkable job of combining a coffee- and an espresso/cappuccino maker to produce professional results with the utmost convenience. Now all we need are the biscotti.--Marcela Broussard

5-0 out of 5 stars A good product for all things intended
Admittedly, my first one had a steamer probem, and was promptly replaced under warranty (I got it off eBay - it was a store demo model, soooo . . .) - I've had that replacement from Capresso for over 3 years now, and it's still making very nice espressos, continues to froth or steam milk well (though, I wish the arm was placed higher, but not a big deal) and it makes fine drip coffee. Programmability is certainly interesting, but I only go for standard shot sizes and otherwise use the timer to start coffee for morning wakeups. This is a very easy to clean and use unit - well designed in both regards.

Sure, you can easily find more expensive, rather serious Italian espresso machines to complement a separate drip (or other) coffee maker - but, this has made satisfying coffee/cap/espresso, been very convenient and easy to use, saved counter space and has lasted well for me.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great espresso - poor cappuccino
This product makes very good espresso with the right amount of 'crema'. However, the milk steamer worked well for only 10 months and can no longer be used to make cappuccinos. I did follow the direcetions and clean it regularly but it still became useless.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Cappuccino
This machine does it all! It took a few times of watching the instructional tape to get down some of the features but now making espresso or cappuccino is a snap and one of the hottest cups of coffee I have ever had at home, or any restaurant. The frother makes great foam for cappuccino or latte's. I read some of the previous reviews and frankly I was shocked. This machine is great from the top down. I recommend it whole-heartedly. The only negative thing thus far is, the lid for the water tank on the espresso side pops off occasionally when you push it all the way back. No Worries! Just pop it back on. The espresso and cappuccino is so good we haven't even gotten to make any drip coffee yet! :)

2-0 out of 5 stars Overpriced , Nor good enough for serious coffee fans.
I've owned the CoffeeBar for a few years now, and I've finally decided that the time has come to order an Italian machine. My Capresso has been sent back twice for repair. The first time when it was new because the pump wouldn't brew properly, but only dribble very weak espresso. They sent me a new unit, which worked better for awhile, but eventually began to produce very inconsistant results. The computer that measures the shots has became erratic and delivers different pours each time. Very frustrating. When it went back this time, it was returned with no explanation of the repairs made and no real improvement. I called the company and spoke to a woman who could only be described as surly, but who passe me on to a technician who said the machine only needed cleaning. Each repair after the warranty expires costs (...) no matter what they do, so I guess I paid to have the thing cleaned, which I had already done trying to get it to work before I sent it back. I should point out that each time I sent the machine back to Capresso to fix the espresso component, the drip coffee maker went too, of course, which has been a bit inconvenient. My new machine will be arriving by UPS any day. (A Racilio Sylvia) This machine costs only a little more than my soon to be retired CoffeeBar. True it has no drip machine attached, but I think I would prefer to have a separate drip machine anyway.
So, if you're really serious about your coffee drinks, you can do much better for the money than this.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
Although the theory works, in practice, the machine is not worth the money. The Espresso maker only works with very coarse ground coffee, put anything in that is a little finer and the system comes to a grinding halt. The drip side works fine although you could get the same functionality for a fraction of the cost. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Reservoir hard, if not impossible, to clean thoroughly
If this little coffeemaker didn't make decent coffee, I would have given it one star. It does, and had I writtent a review before trying to clean the reservoir, I would have rated it at least a four.

Unfortunately, the difficulty of cleaning the water reservoir--and the impossibility of removing the water indicator level from the unit to clean it--are points important to consider if you live in an area where ants periodically invade everything. Even with the use of a cleaning agent, crud remains and is unreachable.

Furthermore, the carafe has a metal band around it, making it impossible to rewarm coffee in the carafe in the microwave. The "footprint" of this coffeemaker is bigger than it needs to be, too.

Overall, these seemed sufficient reason to downgrade my rating of this coffeemaker to a two.

BOTTOM LINE: There are better options. Check out the Braun in the same size. I give that a solid five.

5-0 out of 5 stars best 4-cup coffeemaker on the market
Although an unfamiliar brand name, the Capresso more than lived up to its stellar rating. Very well designed unit for small family -- I drink a mug, my wife a cup of coffee -- at breakfast. The waterlevel indicator helps you brew less than 4 cups, and the coffee tastes just fine. All in all, great value for your money -- beats the name brands, and we've tried most.

The one improvement recommended is the pour spout that overflows when you pour too fast from a full carafe. Otherwise this is a compact, neat and reliable unit in the 6 months we've had it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Worked good for six months then useless.
Very good coffee maker as others have pointed out. Worked for six months then began to leak severely during brewing process. It's now useless. Not built to last. My other Capresso coffee pot broke nearly right away. The feature where you can remove the carafe during the brewing process depends on a tiny plastic piece that broke off while removing the carafe rather than preventing drips. I've had experience with two Capresso coffee pots of this type and both didn't last very long. I feel it's because they used flimsy/cheap parts in critical areas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dependable. Quality. Good Coffee Experience. Recommended!
I highly recommend this coffee maker. It has a very solid construction and sensible design. It does not dribble. It does not make a gigantic mess (all coffee makers make an occasional mess). It is reliable. And the coffee tastes good.

I used to own a Cuisinart 10-cup coffee maker. But it usually dribbled and made a huge mess. So I bought this Capresso coffee maker and threw the Cuisinart in the garbage. Now I am happy.

This Capresso four-cup maker has almost everything I want. First, I like my coffee fresh, so I want only a four-cup coffee pot. That's enough for two average-sized cups or a little more than a large travel mug. Second, it has a good design that neither dribbles when the coffee is brewing, nor leaks when you pour it (unless you pour the coffee too fast). Finally, the coffee tastes good.

The only feature I wish it had was automatic shut off. Other than that, it's perfect. Most features you find on other expensive brands, like timers, are not worth the extra money.
I highly recommend this coffee maker if you are looking for a four-cup model.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Design
We had been looking for a small, black, inexpensive, 4-cup coffee maker for several months, but all of them had some drawback that disuaded us from buying them. This little machine, however, has far exceeded our expectations. The engineering and design is outstanding, and it has several features that very easy to use. The basket for the grounds lifts out easily and the fill bubble on the side makes adding the water simple. We also like the smooth way the mechanism for stopping the flow works when the pot is removed before brewing is complete. There is also a lighted switch which is unusual for less expensive coffee makers. I would really give this machine six stars! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great machine,great price.
The day after I ordered this for [$$], I saw it in 2 stores for [$$$].It makes great hot coffee. Burner keeps it hot.No counter mess. Much better than my old, messy Mr.Coffee (don't even think about that one). The only thing I did not know was that it takes small cone shaped filters... All for less money than I could have bought the machine alone for at [a local store].

5-0 out of 5 stars No problems, No Headaches, Does Exactly what I need it to do
Had a 10 cup coffee maker that went kaput on me and recently purchased this to replace it. I am the only coffee drinker in the house and this is exactly what I need.

I am a clumsy kitchen guy, always making a mess or doing something incorrectly. This coffee maker is straight forward and brews great. The fact that it makes 4 cups is even better as I do not have thow out extra coffee. (Coffee aholic here, but 3 cups is good enough). After brewing the coffee stays hot while in on the heated base.

Would recommend this to anyone who simply needs an inexpensive and no hassle coffee maker to make a few cups every morning. Because as we all know, instant coffee is horrible! :)

5-0 out of 5 stars No space in my place- But I still need my coffee
This coffee maker is perfect for those who don't have a lot of counter space. My favorite feature is the storage space in back of the coffee maker that hides excess cord. Great little machine for those who don't need more than 4 cups of coffee.

4-0 out of 5 stars it'll work
simple, user friendly and makes a decent cup 'o joe. Great if you don't need a 10 cup coffee maker or if you don't normally drink drip coffee, but have the occasional guest that does. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

An excellent machine for the exacting home barista, the Capresso C1500 is engineered for maximum user choice and meticulously consistent results. Built with an 18-bar power pump, the C1500 grinds, tamps, and brews a shot of espresso in 50 seconds. It also automatically froths milk or delivers hot water without the waiting period of lesser machines, thanks to its dual 1450-watt ThermoBlock heating system. In addition, a six-setting solid steel conical burr grinder and a two-step pre-infusion cycle ensure optimum flavor, perfect crema, and ideal aroma. The CLARIS water filtration system removes impurities and heavy metals for clearer, better taste.

The control panel on the C1500 is a straightforward set up, with a menu that includes three strengths, two quantities, two temperatures, and a setting for pre-ground beans. A blue-lit, two-line, electronic display delivers simple instructions in six languages and prompts you when water is low, the filter needs changing, or the used grounds hopper has filled up. You can also fine-tune your machine for automatic shut-off times and local water hardness levels. For simple maintenance, the C1500 comes with a pre-programmed automatic cleaning cycle that ensures excellent flavor and prolongs the life of the machine.

A beauty on the countertop or under a kitchen cabinet, the C1500 features a silver metallic finish with chrome buttons and a stainless steel grid. It comes with an adjustable coffee spout, a separate funnel for pre-ground coffee, an 8-ounce bean hopper, and a 64-ounce water tank. It measures 13 by 11 by 16 inches and comes with an instructional booklet and video. A full one-year warranty covers home use, while a six-month one applies to office operation. --Emily Bedard ...

5-0 out of 5 stars a lot of money, but worth it
I've had my capresso c1500 for several months now and have had no problems with it whatsoever. I've made cappucinos, expresso, hot chocolate, tea, and of course coffee with it. Every cup has been as good as the last. I haven't noticed any deterioration in the quality over time.

Not only does it produce quality coffee, but it's easy to operate and requires almost no cleaning on your part. "Cleaning" consists of changing the water filter every 6 months or so (when the machine tells you to) and placing a cleaning tablet in the machine (when it tells you to) about that often as well - the machine takes care of the rest. I couldn't be happier!

1-0 out of 5 stars C1500 - after 800 cups - it has problems!
I'm on my second C1500. My mother has the same unit and is getting ready to return it to the store after a bad customer support experience with Capresso Phone Support. She's on #2 going to #3! A store manager where I bought my unit has the same problem...

After about 800 cups, the whole bean coffee comes out very weak. The tamper quits working.The only thing that works is the "pre-ground" method. Very disappointing. Funny that we all have had the same bad experience.

Nice overall look and simple controls. But one must question the mechanics of this system. Not reliable.

4-0 out of 5 stars TOO BIG...okay machine
First of all, I would like to point out that the only Saeco that isn't likely to break within its first two years is the Saeco Royal Proffesional, otherwise the Capresso will surely outlast the Saeco.

First of all, the dials on this thing are wonderful and very easy to understand, it is just not as convenient as pressing a button, but it is close. THE MACHINE IS TOO BIG. All if the Jura Capresso machines are plagued with monstronsity that is very unappealing. There are many super automatic machines that aren't plagued with the huge construction.

The froth Express is wonderful, and that can be a large motivation for buying the machine. Although you can't get the same quality as with a commercial style steamer, you get steamed milk very easily and if that is what is important, then this really is the machine for you.

One major thing that bites me about all the Capressos is if anything, anything at all goes wrong with the internal parts of the machine, you must send it in. Going off in a tangent, because the only access you have to the inside of the machine is to the dump box, you can't clean the brew group yourself. This can either be a good thing or a bad thing. It is good for you only have to put in one of Capresso's tablets in the bypass doser every two to four weeks. That bad thing is that the pills are expensive, you can only use their pills, and you must use their pills if you want the machine to last.

I again stress that the coffee from this machine is NOWHERE as good as the espresso that you get from a semi automatic machine. And I remind you that there are machines like the nespresso, and Francis Francis where you can use pods which make the extraction process easier. You can also get a specialized filter basket for the Gaggia's and the Rancilios so you can use pods. Pods allow you to use the convenience of a super automatic, but with a higher flavor, aroma and smoothness. All the shots that I pull from my Rancillio Silvia are much better than those from the Capressos (and super automatics in general).

In conclusion.... this is a good machine, it is about 400 dollars too expensive, and there are other machines (like the Syncrony series from Gaggia, and if you want to go with Saeco, saeco has a few machines with a double boiler, which allows you to go from steaming to brewing with no weight time at a fraction of the cost). Remember, all super automatics can give you the same quality coffee as long as they are about 500 and up. The reason why they differ in price is all about the features.

Keep in mind:

1. You can get better coffee from semi automatics. To make an espresso with a super automatic generally takes 3 minutes when espressos take 5 minutes on a semi automatic. So the tradeoff is quality for ease of use.

2. Although this machine is well made, like all super automatics, it has more parts and is much more likely to break than a semi automatic. Lives on super automatics are generally around 5-7 years depending on the use and care and semi's boast 10-15 years. So remember, no matter how much money you spend on a machine, inevitably, you will have to replace it in 7 years at max.

3. Finally price. This machine is overpriced and there are machines cheaper. So it all comes down to the features. I would look elsewhere before setting your mind on this one. If this one looks the best out of all of them, this is for you, otherwise continue researching.

4. MOST IMPORTANT - selection of a machine generally takes people 3-6 months, so do some research. There is a lot of information out there which will further assist you in your decision.

Too expensive
Nice features
Good BUT NOT great coffee
mediocre frothing quality

GOOD BUT KEEP LOOKING!

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional quality espesso drinks every time
Finally an espresso maker for the mechanically disadvantaged. This machine does it all and is so easy to operate. Absolutely perfect crema on every cup of espresso and coffee. Great frothing and steaming capability. It is even great for dispensing hot water for soup and tea. We use this every day in our office and it is practically idiot proof. It needs to be watered and cleaned like any good pet and it will tell you when it's time to clean or add water.
We first saw these in Switzerland and then were delighted to see them in the U.S. We have one in the office and are adding one at home. We love this unit!

5-0 out of 5 stars i'm rationalizing the price...
it's expensive but this is a great machine and i would probably spend this much at a place like starbucks over the course of a year or so.

the interface is straight forward, the video tape runs through the operations clearly, it looks really nice on the counter, it's easy to clean, it's easy to maintain (for the past two months that i've had it anyway) and it makes about as good a cup of espresso or coffee as i've ever had. not much i can say further about the espresso and coffee, it produces nice crema, is quick and just does an excellent job -- if there is any opportunity to taste it a friend's or neighbor's, you'll know its worth.

the c1500 makes coffee from regular to x-strong for either one or two cups at a time. the size setting goes in 0.5oz increments from 1oz to 7.5oz. per cup and the burr grinder can be adjusted from fine to corse (have to do it while it's grinding, though and i believe the dial has 7 increments) and there is a separate intake for pre-ground so you can easily brew decaf (yuck) instead. there are adjustments for water hardness, alerts for decalcifying based on this, an included claris filter (which negates the need to decalcify) and a decent frother.

the control panel will alert you when the water tank (64 oz removable tank) needs refilling, when you need to refill coffee beans, when you need to decalc or change filter, when it needs to do a self purge or rinse (it always requires a rinse at startup) -- and there is a little cheat sheet in a the hidden panel where you set the little use options -- water hardness, language, coffee temp, etc.

a wonderful machine that will get a lot of use in anyone's kitchen, simple to use and a pleasure to own. ... Read more
