Posted Mon Sep 30, 2013, 7:35am Subject: Any opinoin on Jura J5
I have recently acquired a Jura J5 from a family member. IMO I really enjoy the coffee it makes. I was wondering if anyone has any deeper knowledge of this machine besides its semi-one-touch features and adjustable settings.
Also, I am also interested if anyone has any opinion or guidance with this machines milk frothing abilities. I have used the frothXpress, which is fairly straightforward to use. I have been trying to become better at using the Dual Frother Plus (manual wand). I am having a very hard time at producing microbubbles. I have tried once or twice a day for the past week. Is this a lack of skill on my part or a lack of ability on the machines part?
