A simple, but sleek look

The Jura Impressa C60 comes in a black chassis that has a simple design, but looks very nice. This machine is definitely not an ‘all eyes on me’ kind of coffeemaker. It will sit on your counter discreetly, with its minimalist looks fitting in every kitchen or office interior.

However, simple doesn’t mean unattractive, or low-quality. This machine has all of its spouts, buttons, coffee chambers, and other parts laid out in a simple, but user-friendly and convenient way. It is 11 inches wide, 16 inches deep, and 13.5 inches tall, and all of its parts are accessible. Therefore, you shouldn’t experience any problems related to space or inaccessibility when it comes to the C60.

Does the Jura Impressa C60 impress with its features?

Impressa C60We believe that the answer to this question is ‘yes’ when we compare this coffeemaker with other ones in the same price range.

This coffeemaker has a coffee bean chamber with a capacity of 7oz. This is a good hopper capacity, and there’s also a lid on it that will keep your coffee fresh at all time. Furthermore, the machine’s water reservoir can hold as much as 64 ounces of water. The reservoir is easy to take out and refill.

The Jura Impressa C60 has one switch for going through its menu. The menu is pretty simple, and the display on the coffeemaker is even simpler. All you need to do to pick your coffee drink is turn the switch and, then, press on it when you’ve chosen the coffee type that you wanted.

Once you want to add some tasty froth to your cappuccino, put some milk in a container. Then, just connect the included tube for frothing to the milk spout and put it inside the container. Finally, turn the froth dial to ‘steam’ on the right side of the machine. Don’t forget to press the steam symbol on the display before you start steaming.

If you like decaffeinated coffee or the taste of some grounded coffee, this machine is here to serve you. The Jura Impressa C60 can make coffee from coffee beans or from grounded coffee. Just put your pre-grinded coffee inside the grounded coffee shot and you’ll be drinking your coffee in no time.

Why do the coffee drinks taste better with the Jura C60?

Coffeemakers that make good-quality coffee have two things in common: a good brewing system and programmable settings. In the case of the Jura Impressa C60, you can program the coffee strength, its volume and temperature, and the grinding level.

When it comes to the brewing system of this coffeemaker, Jura has the C60 come with some nice technologies and features. There’s the CLEARYL blue filter that filters the minerals and other chemicals which can harm the taste of your coffee. Also, the C60 uses Jura’s Intelligent Pre-brew aroma system to wet the coffee before brewing, which makes your coffee taste and smell nicer. Furthermore, the passive cup warmer will keep your cups always warm and ready for the next coffee.

Cleaning the machine

The tray of the Jura Impressa C60 has three separate parts. There’s the grounded coffee waste container, the drip tray, and a middle tray as well. All of these parts are easily accessible and cleanable, which is the case with all of Jura’s coffeemakers.

In terms of cleaning, rinsing, and descaling, the Jura Impressa C60 can be cleaned with capsules and with its rinsing program. This is another thing that influences the taste of your coffee, and the C60 cleans itself very well.

Good sides and bad sides of buying the Jura C60

The Jura Impressa C60 has many good sides. For starters, the coffee it makes tastes good. It has a nice thickness, the foam is good and creamy, and the flavor of the drinks is very good.

Furthermore, by letting you program your drinks, the machine makes sure that you’re drinking your coffee how you want it. There are also many specialties available on the machine, which makes it great for a lot of coffee lovers out there. Overall, the C60 brings a good bang for the buck.

When it comes to the drawbacks, some people find the menu switch button confusing. Many would prefer there to have been a TFT screen instead of this one button. This is because you don’t have a picture of the entire menu in this way and you can sometimes forget what you’ve selected. However, we believe that you’ll get used to the button in a very short time, so this shouldn’t be an issue.
