Raising the bar for home espresso machines, Jura looks to impress with the elegant and powerful Impressa Z9 One Touch TFT. A true feat of Swiss espresso engineering, the Z9’s main feature is its full color TFT (Thin-Film-Transistor) display, which makes it easier than ever to make all of your favorite drinks, like lattes and macchiatos at the push of a button. The display can be arranged with 6 of 11 pre-loaded, one-touch drink options for your convenience. The Z9’s powerful dual thermoblock boilers ensure that there’s no delay between brewing and steaming and dispense your beverages at the ideal temperature.
Featuring design elements from other recent Jura models, the Z9 also incorporates the same Aroma+ grinder that made its debut in the Jura Impressa F7. Aroma+ is designed for faster, quieter grinding, thanks to the unique angle of its grind chamber. Other features shared with past Jura machines include: automatic rinsing and maintenance functions; height-adjustable and illuminated brew spouts; multiple strength, temperature, and volume settings; and most importantly, one-touch specialty milk drinks.
Full Color TFT Display
The Z9’s crowning feature, the full-color TFT display is representative of Jura’s commitment to utilizing modern technology and design aesthetics to raise the standards of consumer electronics. The display can be loaded with 6 of the Z9’s 11 drink specialties and makes navigating and selecting the machines features and menus quick and intuitive.
Dual Thermoblock Boilers
For optimal beverage quality, the Z9 was built with two thermoblock boilers to ensure temperature stability while brewing. One boiler is dedicated strictly to brewing coffee, while the other is used for hot water, steaming, and frothing. This, of course, means that there is no wait time between brewing and steaming.
Grinder, Bean Hopper and Bypass Doser
The Z9 utilizes Jura’s revolutionary Aroma+ grinder, which features a specialized grinding chamber designed to reduce noise and cut down on grind times. The bean hopper has a 9.8 oz capacity and the dreg box can hold up to 20 spent pucks. Additionally, the machine also features a bypass doser, allowing you to brew with pre-ground coffee.
Automatic Rinsing and Energy Settings
Maintenance and energy management are made easy with the Z9’s automatic rinse cycles and standby mode. The machine rinses its spouts after each drink is brewed to prevent the buildup of coffee oils and milk residue. Additionally, the Impressa Z9 will automatically transition into a low energy standby mode after an extended period of inactivity, however, the machine can also be programmed to shut off completely after a specified duration has passed.
The Impressa Z9 brews using a powerful thermoblock boiler and high performance 15-bar pump. Make all of your favorite drinks, including espresso, ristretto, caffe crema, and cappuccinos at the push of a button. All drinks feature variable dosing options between 5 and 16 grams of coffee and are brewed with Jura’s Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System (I.P.B.A.S) for maximum flavor and aroma. Lastly, coffee strength and temperature can be programmed ahead of time, allowing you to craft drinks to your exact specifications, time and time again.
Steaming and Frothing
Utilizing an innovative automatic cappuccino system, the Impressa Z9 can produce both steamed milk for drinks, like lattes or rich hot chocolate, as well as delicate milk foam for cappuccinos and latte macchiatos. The Z9’s frothing system is integrated into the brewing spouts and is height adjustable between 4.4″ and 6.0″. The frothing system is compatible with Jura’s Cool Control Milk Container and Stainless Steel Thermal Milk Container.
The frothing spout can dispense hot water for tea, hot chocolate, and Americanos and can be set to one of three temperatures.
