Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.)
In order to extract coffee with the richest aroma and flavor, the A8 makes use of two Jura brewing innovations the Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System (I.P.B.A.S.) and the Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.). The I.P.B.A.S. is a system that heats a small amount of water to wet the ground coffee prior to brewing. The infusion of hot water assists in creating a more even extraction of flavor and aroma while brewing. The P.E.P. process pulses water through the grounds at high pressure in short intervals. The pulsing helps to produce a more balanced cup by more evenly extracting from the entire puck of coffee.
Bean to Cup Brewing Features
The Impressa A9 features 12 individually programmable espresso drinks that can be brewed at the touch of the button. Each drink can be modified to your exact preferences with adjustable coffee strength (6 – 10g of coffee), water volume, milk volume. Once you’ve found a setting you like, you can have the machine memorize it to brew again whenever you like. Alternatively, beverage parameters can be adjusted on a per drink basis while brewing in the event that you have friends or family visiting. The Impressa A9 has height adjustable spouts that can be raised or lowered between 2.2″ and 5.4″ and feature both white and amber cup illumination.
From a technical standpoint, the Impressa A9 brews with a high performance 15 bar pump and a thermoblock heating system. In addition to grinding fresh whole bean coffee for your drinks, you can also opt to use pre-ground coffee with the bypass doser. The water reservoir holds up to 36.8oz of water and the dreg box can hold up to nine spent pucks of coffee before needing to be emptied. The following drinks can be prepared at the push of a button:

Milk Frothing and Hot Water
You can craft milk based drinks like lattes and cappuccinos with the push of a button thanks to the integrated milk frothing spout. Unlike many of Juras other espresso machines, the frothing system on the Impressa A9 is built directly into the espresso spouts and dispenses light, feathery milk foam using Jura’s fine foam technology. The frothing system siphons milk directly into the spout and is compatible for use with Jura’s Stainless Steel Milk Container and their Cool Control milk containers.
For other beverages like tea and hot cocoa, you can choose to dispense hot water or milk foam only.
Aroma + Grinder, Bean Hopper, and Bypass Doser
Your coffee is ground fresh for each drink you brew by Jura’s revolutionary Aroma+ grinder. The cutting angle of the stainless steel conical burrs ensures that the machine grinds twice as fast and far quieter than previous Jura models. Depending on the roast level of the beans you’re using, the grinder can be set to one of five grind settings to ensure ideal extraction conditions. The bean hopper has a 4.4 oz capacity and features an aroma preservation cover to keep your beans fresher for longer. Additionally, the A9 can brew using pre-ground coffee thanks to its bypass doser and comes packaged with a coffee funnel for easy filling.
