Jura Machine Maintenance Steps: Maintenance Advice to Make your Investment Last Longer

Given that an entry-level Jura coffee machine will set you back in the region of R 9 000.00 to start  – you might consider this machine somewhat of an investment piece. For that exact reason, we should be asking ourselves if we are doing enough to properly maintain these machines, especially because they are often high-usage pieces of equipment – much unlike other investment pieces such as cars, jewelry or art.

Understanding which pieces of the average Jura coffee machine might require maintenance is the first step in learning how to maintain its quality output, and in turn, bring you many more happy coffee-making years.

Jura Machine Maintenance Steps: Water Tank Filters


Jura Claris Smart Grey Filter

Limescale causes buildup and impairs flavor in any coffee type, in any coffee machine.

When water is heated, limescale is deposited. Pipes clogged with limescale not only slow down the heating process and therefore consume more energy, but may even cause the machine to break down completely. Limescale also has a negative effect on the coffee itself. Although a small amount of calcium carbonate is important to the flavour of coffee, too much gives the water an unpleasant aftertaste and prevents the coffee aromas from developing as they should, partly due to fluctuating water temperatures.

The great news is, CLARIS filters remove the need for descaling! The right water is crucial to the taste of the coffee because coffee consists in fact of 98 % water. In addition to calcium, minerals and fluorides, the tap water in many areas contains traces of lead, copper, aluminium and chlorine.

Positioned directly in the water tank, the CLARIS filter freshly filters the water every time coffee is prepared. It completely absorbs harmful substances while retaining important fluorides, which help the flavors to really develop. With the optimum water quality, every cup of coffee becomes a full-bodied taste experience. CLARIS eliminates the need to descale the machine.

Jura Machine Maintenance Steps: Regular Cleaning


In combination with the integrated, electronically controlled cleaning programme, the 2-phase cleaning tablet reliably removes coffee fats between the brewing unit and the coffee spout. As well as cleaning it also seals all the pipes, delaying the deposition of coffee fat with lasting effectiveness. Everything happens at the touch of a button and without the user having to reach into the machine.

Jura Machine Maintenance Steps: Milk System Cleaning

Milk Flask


JURA’s fine foam technology allows you to enjoy speciality coffees such as latte macchiato, cappuccino, espresso macchiato and flat white in outstanding quality. To keep things that way, the milk system cleaner was brought to life. Together with the automatic cleaning programme, the JURA milk system cleaner effectively removes milk fats and proteins. This keeps the pipes clean and hygienic for consistently fine, light-as-air milk foam.

Why is it so important to maintain an automatic coffee machine on a regular basis?

The right maintenance guarantees the optimum coffee result and measurably extends the lifetime of your automatic machine. When it comes to the perfect coffee result and smooth machine functioning, the cleanliness of the machine and the hygienic handling of milk, coffee and water are just as important as the technical refinements of the automatic machine itself.

JURA has developed the JURA range of phosphate-free maintenance products to make it easy to maintain the machine at the touch of a button. The CLARIS filter delivers perfect water, the cleaning tablets ensure the brewing unit is clean and free from coffee fats, and the milk system rinsing function keeps the pipes clean with absolutely no milk residues.
