  2. Thank you for the article, but can you tell me if I can remove the drip tray to have my coffee in larger cups?
    I’m just into longer coffees.

    • Hey, Max!! Thank you too for reading our article!! :)) ☕

      The drip tray on the Jura J80 is completely removable for when you need to empty it. However, if not put back inside the machine, the machine will not be able to make coffee. Therefore, no, the drip tray of this machine is not removable in the sense you would like it to be. However, the coffee and the cappuccino spout are height-adjustable and you can count on the J80 when it comes to larger cup sizes or, specifically, cups or glasses that are up to 9 inches tall.

      If you think that the J80 isn’t the machine you’re looking for, you can check out one of the other coffee machines on our site and find one that will best meet your needs.

      Take care and enjoy your coffee!! :)) ☕

  3. @morningcallcoffeestand Can this espresso machine work well without any accessories is it absolutely essential to get them too?

    • Hello, Emily!! :)) ☕

      There are some accessories your Jura J80 could ‘live’ without, and yet there are other ones that you’ll need so that you can maintain it properly. You will, for example, need decalcifying tablets, filters, and a milk container, but you don’t really need a thermal milk container or the Jura Bluetooth Smart Connect, for instance. Of course, if you want to get some of the accessories that you are not essential just because you want to have an even great experience with your Jura, you can certainly do that.

  4. @morningcallcoffeestand I think I could POTENTIALLY afford to get a refurbished one. My hopes are high for a lower price. The machine looks great, by the way. (likes)

    • Hey there!! Do you have a favorite element? :)) ☕

      We’re glad you like this machine!! Even though we’re not sure whether there’s any seller on Amazon that’s currently selling a refurbished Jura J80 for the American market, there might be international sellers who offer a good deal for this model, refurbished, so I would check the Amazon links in the article.

      Have a happy day and may this Jura machine soon end up on your kitchen counter!! :)) ☕
