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 coffee maker. 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 coffee maker with other ones in the same price range.

This coffee maker 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 times. 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 coffee maker 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?

Coffee machines 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.

This machine can brag with the technologies it uses; some of these technologies are present on higher-end Jura machines, like the Jura Z6 or the Z9.

When it comes to the brewing system of this coffee maker, Jura has the C60 come with some nice technologies and features. There’s the CLEARYL blue filter that filters the minerals and other chemicals that 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 coffee makers.

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’ve preferred there to have been a TFT screen on this Jura, one like its higher-end sisters, the Jura E6 or the E8, have. 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.

The good

  • The coffee tastes good
  • The machine can make many coffee drinks
  • Programmable coffee volume and temperature
  • Makes coffee drinks from coffee beans and ground coffee
  • The machine looks very nice
  • Good value for the price

The bad

  • The one switch button can be confusing

    • Hello, Norah! We’re sorry you’re experiencing a problem with your Jura C60. :((

      Know that this is a common problem with Jura coffee machines and that there is probably nothing to worry about. Here’s what you should do to try to fix this:
      1. Take the drip tray completely out of the machine
      2. Take the grounds container out of the drip tray
      3. Slide the drip tray into the machine, but this time without the grounds container in it
      The machine will reset soon after this and you’ll then pull the drip tray out and put the grounds container inside of it. :))

      Hope this works out for you. If it doesn’t, don’t hesitate to contact your seller or Jura and tell them about your problem. In case you need to call them, take a look at the information given on the Jura USA page:

  1. ALERT! SPOUT CLOGGED!
    @morningcallcoffeestand I think the right coffee spout of my C60 is clogged. Would you be kind and tell me what to do?

    Reply
    • Hello, Libraattacks!! We’ll gladly help you solve your problem!!

      First of all, is the coffee extracted way too slow out of the spout? Is it only dispensed out from the left spout on your machine? Is there too little coffee dispensed into your coffee cup?
      If you’re experiencing any of these issues, then, yes, the right spout on your Jura Impressa C60 might really be clogged. :/

      To fix this, try rinsing and descaling your machine. If that doesn’t help, contact your seller or Jura to give you advice on what to do next depending on the gravity of your problem. We wouldn’t recommend you try doing something on your own unless your seller or the staff at Jura advise you to.

      Here is the contact information that Jura offers to US citizens:

    • Hey, Alen!! Thanks for sharing your dilemma with us! :)) ☕

      The C60 and the C65 are practically the same coffee machine, but there are two nice upgrades to the C65 that could make you choose it instead of the C60.

      The first upgrade has to do with the burr angle of the grinder on the C65. The burr angle on the C65 is slightly different from the one on the C60. This change makes the C65 grind the coffee a bit better and be a bit quieter than the C60.

      The other thing that is different on the C65 is its housing or, more specifically, its color. While the housing of the C60 is mostly black, the one of the C65 features two silver panels placed on the front side of the coffee machine. However, the differences in the design of the two machines don’t go further than that, so nothing really changes when it comes to the shape of the C65.

      To wrap it up, the C65 seems to add to the variety of the C60 machines: it’s like a C60 with a different color and a slightly different burr angle. However, these two things are ‘deal sealers’ for a lot of people out there.

      We hope that we helped you decide between the C60 and the C65! You can tell us which model you got in the comments!! :)) ☕

  2. @morningcallcoffeestand Okay, MCCS, I have no idea whether you got my comment or not, the site said I was sending too many requests, so, here I go again. I have a problem with the temperature of my coffee, or, in other words, coffee not hot enough. Please tell me what to do, and I’ll be forever grateful for the morning burn.

    Reply
    • The best morning burn is the morning coffee burn, right? :)))) ☕

      Have you tried programming the water temperature? If you have not, please try it. :)) If that doesn’t work, maybe you could try using less milk froth in your coffee drinks. The milk froth will always be a bit colder than the coffee and using less of it could give you the coffee temperature that you want. Another thing you can do is use coffee cups that are pre-warmed; just add some hot water in them to warm them up and all should be good.

      We hope that we helped you figure this out and we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a hotter cup of coffee for you!! :)) ☕
