Jura Capresso S9

I'm not sure if I will keep this section, or work on it again. When I had a hard drive failure several months back, I lost all my data and test group notes regarding comparing the Jura Capresso Impressa S9 to the following machines:

  • Solis Palazzo (dual heater super automatic)
  • Krups Orchestro Dialog (very programmable super automatic)
  • Franke Saphira (low end commercial super automatic)
  • Solis SL-70 Espresso machine ($400 consumer traditional machine)

I no longer have the direct "quotes" as said by my test group of users. I no longer have their scores for each machine. And I no longer have their survey questions and answers.

But I do remember the general gist of what was said about the test machines. In all cases, the Jura Capresso Impressa S9 matched or beat the other super automatics, and lost in only two categories to the Solis SL-70. The overall scores picked the Impressa S9 as the top machine. In order of preference:

Impressa S9; Franke Saphira; Solis SL-70; Krups Orchestro (very close to the Franke, actually in all scores except espresso taste); and the Solis Palazzo.

People especially noted the fast warm up times, the hot water temperatures, the ease of use for the steaming and frothing, and the convenience factors of the Impressa S9 machine.

The only place it lost out was on taste of espresso (to the traditional machine, the Solis SL-70), and in milk froth quality (again to the SL-70).

Considering the Franke machine costs almost double, people felt that the Jura Capresso S9 would be a good match for a bookstore, restaurant, or even a very small cafe. People also noted that the Krups Orchestro was very close in all categories save convenience factors to the S9 and Franke, and at almost half the cost was a better bargain.

I may do another test group to fill out this page and provide accurate scoring and commentary by real consumers down the road.
