Single-Touch Color Display

To get your JURA S8 started, simply fill the hopper with your bean of choice, top off the 64-oz water reservoir in the back, and scroll through the color display to choose one of 15 specialty drink options.

All you need to do is tap the screen, and the S8 will automatically begin preparing your selection within seconds. Make sure you place your mug or glass beneath the correct spout, depending on whether your drink selection uses milk or not.

15-Bar Pulse Extraction Process

The secret behind the JURA S8’s high-quality coffee is the pulse brewing method, which shoots water in small bursts through the coffee grounds to extract as much flavor and aroma from the beans as possible.

The pump delivers a constant 15 bars of pressure across the grounds’ entire surface area, saturating and forcing water through them for maximum extraction. When your drink is done, the used grounds are automatically discharged and placed inside a specialized storage compartment.


No automatic coffee machine would be complete with a full range of customizable drink options. The JURA S8 offers just that, allowing users to choose between different portion sizes, bitterness strength, and water temperature. According to some customers, there’s a pretty steep learning curve when using the S8, but with enough practice, you should be able to find the perfect settings for your golden cup of coffee.

10-oz Fresh Bean Hopper

The S8 can create delicious lattes using either fresh beans or pre-ground coffee by placing them into the bean bypass. If you’re using fresh beans, just pour your coffee of choice into the 10-oz hopper with a built-in Aroma G3 grinder. The S8 is one of the quieter automatic coffee machines available, thanks to the heavy-duty lid with an airtight and soundproofing seal.

Height-Adjustable Spouts

The S8’s height-adjustable spouts make it easy to make a fresh, single-shot espresso at home or a large latte for the road.

The main dual-chamber coffee spout can accommodate cups from between 7.2 and 11.8 cm in height, whereas the milk spout on the right-hand side of the S8 can go as high as 16 cm. If you want a steaming-hot latte on the go, just place a tumbler underneath the milk spout, and you’re all set!


One of the most annoying things about using an espresso machine is cleaning up afterward, but you won’t have any sort of maintenance problem with the JURA S8. It’s a fully automatic espresso machine, which also includes self-cleaning features that keep spent grounds out of the spouts.

The machine will also notify you when it’s time to descale the internal components. To do this, simply drop a descaling tablet (sold separately) into the pre-ground bypass chute, turn the machine on, and allow it to run internal cleaning cycle until complete. Make sure you place use the water filter (sold separately) to keep minerals out of your coffee and the machine’s internal brewer for less scale buildup and maintenance issues.
