Beans à la carte

Each of the 39 specialties of the Jura GIGA X7 are available as freshly made from one coffee blend, two blends, or even decaf. In favor of the versatility in taste from person to person, the machine allows the beans put in the two hoppers to be used separately or as blended, which is also called beans à la carte. With a decaf blend in one of the hoppers or two different caffeinated blends in both of them, it is possible to mix the beans in different ratios, like, for example, 25% of the beans in the first hopper and 75% of the beans in the second one. This incredible variability in flavor and caffeine is available from the start menu of the display as soon as you activate the beans à la carte option.

Coffee strength is programmable on five levels, while the temperatures of the brewing water and the hot water on three.

Jura Giga X7 Professional Coffee media

A machine can make as many drinks as possible, but its reputation can still be bad if it takes no proper care of the coffee beans it makes the drinks with. That said, the Jura GIGA X7 is the proud house of two 23-ounce bean hoppers with air-tight lids for the ultimate preservation of the bean’s aroma and two ceramic grinders that are electronically adjusted by the machine for optimal grinding and flavor extraction.

The ceramic grinders are durable and, more importantly, prevent extra heat build-ups throughout grinding, protecting the natural coffee oils from getting burnt. The machine knows what’s best for the coffee and how to work with it based on the settings adjusted for each drink, which explains the electronic adjustments to the grinder. Generous in every aspect possible, the Jura GIGA X7 also features a bypass coffee doser for pre-ground or decaffeinated coffee as an easy and cost-effective alternative to whole-bean blends.

The Jura touch on coffee quality

With intelligent preheating and two thermoblock heating systems, the Jura GIGA X7 makes every coffee drink a fantasy by making it fast, but reasonably fast, though, so to preserve the good taste of its ingredients. Outstanding Jura technologies like the Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System and the Fine Foam technology create the perfect environment inside the machine for the coffee to bloom and the milk to be exquisitely transformed into steamed milk or a beautifully-textured milk foam. The coffee for the specialties is brewed or pressurized to fit each coffee recipe, and the water in the tank, filtered by the Clearyl Blue water filter, is free of impurities and minerals that destroy the taste of the drinks. With the Jura GIGA X7, coffee is an art with many details to be taken care of.

Easy and mainly automatic maintenance

The Jura GIGA X7 practically maintains itself, so very little is left for the user to do to maintain it. With the integrated rinsing, cleaning, and descaling programs of the machine’s coffee system and the maintenance programs for its milk system, the machine is always ready to flush out any impurities that have built up inside of it. Actively monitoring the beans and the drip tray, the Jura GIGA X7 gives alerts for when beans need to be added or when the try needs to be emptied. In fact, the machine gives alerts when cleaning, descaling, and rinsing are needed as well, and these information is easily available in the maintenance status sub-menu of the machine.
