Jura GIGA Range: Biggest Similarities

All Jura’s come standard with a few key technologies and features – which allows users to have the confidence in whichever product they opt for; there is no “bad choice” in Jura’s – just better and lesser suited options for your requirements.

Jura Fine Foam Froth technology is a key component in each and every Jura coffee machine. You’re assured of the highest quality milk froth available.
Non-removable brew group ensures ease of use and maintenance – expanding the lifespan of your machine.
Swiss-quality. Engineered and manufactured in Switzerland, this brand is known for it’s quality components as well as exceptional advancements. Continual improvement is made per machine to ensure each machine is better than the last.
IPBWS – Intelligent Pre-Brew Water System means you coffee is extracted to just the right strength and allowed time to sufficiently develop each complex flavour.

Jura GIGA Range: Biggest Differences

Grinder types vary per machine -although we have seen the Aroma G3+ grinder becoming the “standard” of late. However, all Jura coffee machine contain ceramic grinders – but some may be adjustable while others are pre-set.

Water tank and bean hopper size. When comparing the GIGA range, it’s vital to compare the water tank sizes. The bean hopper and tank should be proportional, to allow for the least amount of refilling during the day.
Lastly, the thermo-block amount is a huge influencing factor. Having two thermo-blocks allows for incredible “wiggle space” – as you can then froth milk and brew coffee simultaneously (these two items require vastly different temperatures, so having two available heating points means now waiting for the temperature to raise or drop, respectively). However, some of the GIGA range contain THREE thermo-blocks, so if speed is a deciding factor – consider the unsurpassed speed with which you can brew cappuccino’s and other milk-based drinks when the addition of another thermo-block is introduced.

Which Jura GIGA is right for you? Time for the giga-decision.

It’s never a cut-and-dry situation, especially when you’re deciding between four coffee machines that are so close in capability and function. I would suggest you consider the 4 criteria, and decide fro there:

What is your budget?

Where ill this machine be – and how many cups do you expect to make from it daily?

What is more important for you – feature-filled functionality or mass output of quality coffee?

Lastly, decide which of the features speaks to you most. If energy efficiency is high on your agenda, select a GIGA that fits that requirement. At the end of the day – this is a “problem” many of us do not mind having; the right GIGA is a few reviews away!
