JURA F50 and F55 Impressa Classic: premium quality and solid design from Switzerland
Built-in timer to prepare drinks at the appointed time
The built-in burr steel coffee grinder allows you to adjust the degree of grinding (6 positions), opening up more and more new flavors for you. If you dream of waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee, then you will definitely be pleased with the built-in timer. Your favorite drink will be ready right when you wake up. Great replacement for an alarm clock!
Automatic brew unit rinse and cup warmer
The self-cleaning system keeps maintenance to a minimum. And the rotary switch is extremely easy to operate. You can even not read the instructions, although I still recommend not to neglect this book. The heated stand will make sure that the finished drink is poured into warmed cups and does not cool down longer.
Also available is a cappuccinatore. It’s a double action. There is a function of manual whipping with a panarello nozzle, or you can use an automatic approach with a discharge hose, the end of which is placed in a container of milk. You can even in a tetra-pack. And then at the exit of the steam tap you will get a thick, dense milk foam without any effort.
The control system is extremely simple. Anyone, even without prompting, can easily prepare a cup of fragrant invigorating drink. The waste container holds 16 portions, and the water tank holds 1.9 liters. The JURA F50 Classic coffee machine allows you to adjust the temperature, the strength of the drink and its volume. By the way, the model is suitable for both grain and ground coffee.
The F50 model of the Swiss brand Yura belongs to high-price coffee machines — as of the end of 2015, the cost of such a “device” averages from 80 to 1800–2000$, depending on the region. Large retailers may be cheaper, subject to promotions. If you get on sale, you can get an almost premium device at a tempting price.
Fixed brewing unit: pros and cons
Actually, like all coffee machines of the company, Jura F50 and, accordingly, F55 does not need regular cleaning of the brewing unit. It does not need to be washed under the tap, lubricated, it is generally non-removable. But this fact also has a downside: since cleaning takes place only with tablets with chemistry (carry out regularly strictly according to the instructions!), And a certain amount of ground coffee is still clogged inside, then once every 1–3 years you have to take the machine to a service for a comprehensive maintenance with disassembly of the case and cleaning of the insides. The cost of the operation can easily go beyond 150$. You need to be ready for this. I wrote about this in more detail in the review of the Jura C5/C50/C60 line.
