Jura Giga 6 Automatic Coffee Machine Review

If you’re looking for the most feature-packed automatic coffee machine, then the Jura Giga 6 is for you. This machine falls into Jura’s super-premium category of coffee machines that features an upgraded display, bean grinders, more than 2 dozen specialty drink options, and a heck of a lot more. Let’s take an in depth look at the Giga 6 and what it’s all about.

Dual Built-in Ceramic Disc Bean Grinders

One thing that may feel like overkill to the average coffee lover is two coffee grinders built into a single machine, but believe us, if there are multiple coffee drinkers at home or the office, this machine has a whole lot of something for everybody.

Twin grinders and hoppers allow you to place different types of beans into each hopper (light and dark roasts, decaf and regular, and so on). The grinders and hoppers are covered by a plastic lid with Aroma Preservation Cover to keep your beans fresher for longer.

4.3-inch Full-Color Touchscreen Display and Rotary Dial

A major improvement in this super-premium automatic coffee machine is the massive 4.3-inch touchscreen display that clearly shows the various specialty drink options and programmable settings you can choose to brew.

On top of the machine is a Blue Crystal Rotary Dial that you can use to choose drinks not shown on the home display. With 28 specialty short drinks available and made steaming-hot with just a press of a button, you can have any drink at any time of the day with any aroma or coffee strength level you prefer.

2 Separate Spouts

The Giga 6 comes with two separate spouts. On the right is a dual coffee and milk brew group with adjustable height to accommodate most large on-the-go coffee containers of up to 6.5 inches. There are two coffee spouts on the coffee brew group to produce 2 coffee and milk-based beverage simultaneously.

This can also hook to the Refrigerant Container (sold separately) that keeps milk at a constant chill indefinitely. On the left is the heated water spout—also adjustable—for non-coffee and non-milk specialty beverages, including green tea and black tea.

Programmable Settings

What’s great about this super-premium coffee machine is that all aspects of the brewing process can be programmed to your exact specifications.

Users have full control over how strong their coffee is, how large or small a shot to produce, and how frothy the milk comes pouring out of the spout. If you decide that your latte isn’t getting enough milk or coffee, you can adjust the settings on the fly by using the touchscreen display.

An awesome feature found on the Giga 6’s software is Customize and Duplicate. This feature lets you copy and delete any of the available drink options, allowing you to reprogram the beverage to your liking.

This means you can have variable recipes for your drinks so you won’t need to constantly configure the strength/aroma/size whenever you’re jonesing for a cup of java.

Jura Smart Connect

Admittedly, the touchscreen and rotary dial can be a bit of a pain to use after a while, but if you use the Jura Connect accessory on your Giga 6, you’ll almost never have to lay hands on the machine ever again.

The Jura Connect accessory lets you control the machine using the Jura Operating Experience (J.O.E.) smartphone app. Through Bluetooth, you can have the machine prepare any of the specialty drinks immediately with just a tap on your phone’s screen. The app even lets you send voice commands through your virtual assistant.

Maintenance Notifications

Taking care of the Giga 6 is as easy as you’d expect from a premium Jura machine. By pressing the center button on the rotary dial, the display will show you all pending maintenance notifications such as cleaning the milk system and changing the CLEARYL Smart filter in the 87-ounce reservoir.

You may not need to perform these maintenance tasks immediately so the alert will sit in the background as a reminder that it needs to be done before putting the Giga 6 away.

Artificial Intelligence

This is somewhat unheard of in the coffee machines, but it’s really not as daunting as it may seem.

The Jura isn’t listening in on your conversations (no microphone on the machine), but it remembers which drinks you make most often and displays them on the home page for quicker access without scrolling through the numerous drink options. Impressive, but not shockingly so.

Verdict: Should I Get the Jura Giga 6?

Being on the pricier end of the Jura premium machine spectrum, it’s undoubtedly packing some pretty unique features that the most hardcore coffee afficionados will appreciate.

In terms of brewing performance, it’s pretty much the same as many of Jura’s other machines, although it does make it a lot more convenient to do. We’d recommend this product to anybody looking to upgrade their home or office espresso machine.
