Jura S8 vs Jura Z8 – Modern Mocha Marvels

Jura S8 vs Jura Z8 – Modern Mocha Marvels

During October, Jura went all out on the advertising of their newest, sleekest model – the S8. Even Roger Federer- the brand ambassador for Jura – was roped in by being part of a new promotional campaign involving the S8. We decided to compare the model released just before the S8 – i.e. the Z8 – side by side with the newest model – to see how Jura has improved, innovated and advanced their offering to the world of exceptional coffee lovers.

What we can deduce from comparing these two modern models side by side is that:

The Z8 is better suited to those who enjoy speciality drinks and might make use of the machine to serve green tea drinkers, as well.

In terms of capacity, sizing specifications and design – both machines feature all the newest key technologies from Jura. It really comes down to the minor details – such as the difference in height-adjustability of the spout system and minor differences in water tank size. The Z8 does boast more features – such as the milk heat-level programmability – a great feature for milk-based drink lovers.

 

Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong with Jura!
