Quite a few readers wanted to know more about the Jura that our young barista was using to make the espressos.  We will have the FirstLook and FirstUse reviews of the Impressa Z5 posted over the course of the next few days.

Today, we are just going to get our coffee taste buds tingling.  Get a closer look at images by clicking on the shot of our first cup.  As the instructions said: when running the machine for the first time...toss the first two cups, the third one will be perfect.  It was.  More tomorrow.




Impressa Z5

By Wan Chi Lau

Still having trouble making the perfect espresso? Well, you can keep honing your skills or spend some cash and get the new Jura Impressa Z5. This unit is for those SERIOUS about their coffee drinks.

This unit arrived late yesterday so all we have done is unpacked it and took a quick look. We will be looking at it a lot closer over the next few weeks. BTW...some of us are heading up to Maine to check out the foliage this holiday weekend. We are thinking of bringing the Impressa with us :-)
