Jura ENA Micro 9 Review

Review summary

Editor’s rating: 3.5 Star Editor's Rating

Jura ENA Micro 9 One Touch Automatic Coffee Machine Manufacturers often tend to make their coffee machines compact and simple to make them more convenient for their customers. However, Jura went one step further and made the Jura ENA Micro 9. Very similar to its sister machine, the Jura ENA Micro 1, the Micro 9 is noticeably small and outstandingly simple to use.

But are these two things enough to get many to fall for this coffee machine? Well, this machine has a few more things to offer, such as a few coffee drinks, a separate milk spout for foam, and some programmable settings. This doesn’t make it ideal for people who want more control over their coffee, but it makes it a nice choice for those who like getting good coffee by pressing a button.

Very small in size

As we already mentioned, the Micro 9 has a rather small footprint– a characteristic cherished by many. Even though Jura brought the benefits of small machines to their customers with other models like the Micro 1 and the A1, the Jura Micro 9 truly is the smallest.

The machine was designed to measures 9.06 x 12.72 x 17.52 inches. Therefore, the ENA Micro 9 could be perfect for you if you have many things piled up on your counter, but would still like an espresso machine on it.

However, it’s not only the housing of the machine that is small in size, but its water reservoir and its bean hopper as well. The water tank can take as much as 37 ounces of water, while the hopper has space for 4.5 ounces of coffee beans. Therefore, you should consider buying another coffee machine if you’re a heavy coffee drinker, unless you don’t mind refilling the two containers more often.

Jura ENA Micro 9 One Touch Automatic Coffee Machine Not a complicated machine at all

The Jura ENA Micro 9 is simple to operate due to its intuitive control panel and one-touch drink system. This means that you’ll have no problem understanding what every button does, and you’ll have your coffee drink at the touch of a button. This, furthermore, means that you’ll be able to choose and get the drink in your cup fast and almost effortlessly.

This espresso machine also has an easy-to-use rotary switch and a traffic light display. The rotary switch will let you program some settings to a certain extent for a more personalized coffee drink.
When it comes to the traffic light display, it will turn red when the machine is about to take action and yellow when it’s in the programming mode. Furthermore, a green display means that the machine is ready to follow your commands

Which coffee drinks does it make?

The Jura ENA Micro 9 makes both milk-based coffee drinks and espresso. On this machine, you can make latte macchiato, espresso, café crème, and cappuccino. The machine has a separate coffee and milk system, which means that coffee and milk don’t come through the same spouts.

On this espresso machine, you can also get a serving of hot water which you can use to make some tea or hot chocolate. Furthermore, the hot water serving lets you make Americano as well.

How much control over your drinks does it let you have?

Not only can you make different coffee drinks on the Jura ENA Micro 9, but the machine also lets you program them. The machine has a variable brewing unit which allows you to adjust the amount of coffee in your shot, and you can also program the temperature and the amount of water in the drink.

In case you want to have a cup of decaf coffee, the machine has a bypass filter to make this possible for you. You can, furthermore, use larger cups on the ENA Micro 9 since the coffee spouts on this machine are adjustable

Jura ENA Micro 9 One Touch Automatic Coffee Machine Is cleaning the ENA Micro 9 as easy as operating it?

Cleaning this machine is really not that hard, considering all the things that Jura did to make cleaning the ENA Micro 9 easier for you. This coffee maker has integrated rinsing, cleaning, and descaling programs and uses a CLEARYL filter cartridge. You can also adjust the water hardness so that the machine knows when it’s time to descale the brewing system.

The parts of the Jura ENA Micro 9 are numbered, and you’ll be able to easily readjust them once you’re done with the cleaning.

Does the Jura ENA Micro 9 come with a milk container?

No, you’ll need to purchase the milk carafe separately. However, you can use a container that you have at home to froth your milk in it.

  1. Thanks so, so much for the great FAQ, you really answered a lot of the questions I wanted to ask about the espresso machine. Unfortunately, it seems to me like the machine offers way too little for its price… I think it’s worth getting another Jura that costs the same, but offers more. :/

  2. Seems like it has some nice specs, but the price is just too high… maybe someday in the future. Any Jura that’s more affordable to recommend?
    -I like latte macchiatos
    -I like long coffees
    -I like the machine to have a good grinder

    @morningcallcoffeestand, thank you

  3. jura seems to name their espresso machines for example 6 and then 60, 9 and then 90, you know what I mean? so now you gave the 90 as an alternative model, which is a newer version of the 9, are they the same or what’s going on here?

    • Hi, metalhead!! :)) ☕

      Yes, the Jura ENA Micro 90 is a newer version of the Jura ENA Micro 9 coffee machine and you can expect it to be an improved version of the ENA Micro 9. That said, on the ENA Micro 90 is different because of the following things: it lets you vary the coffee strength on 10 levels compared to the ENA Micro 9 which only has 2 coffee strengths to offer; it has improved coffee spouts and an improved hot water spout; makes espresso, coffee, cappuccino, latte macchiato, milk foam as a separate product, and hot water on demand whereas the ENA Micro 9 makes latte macchiato, cappuccino, espresso, café crème, and hot water on demand.

      It is up to you to decide which model works best for you. If you more questions about these two Jura coffee machines or something else related to coffee machines, drop a comment and we’ll be happy to respond.
