Jura X8 Review

Jura X8 Platinum Coffee Machine – South Africa’s Hottest New Jura Arrival

Jura X8 Platinum Coffee Machine – South Africa’s Hottest New Jura Arrival

Launch announcements from Jura are the coffee lovers quintessential equivalent of Apple Keynote speeches preceding a new product launches; we await with baited breath the latest announcement from them, as if our lives depended on it. We wait to hear what the new machine features, which machine it will be replacing and how much money we should start saving to be able to get our hands on the latest arrival.

Well, 2018 is off to a rather peachy start – Jura’s just announced the brand-spanking new X8, and it’s what every office needs. Neeeeeeds, I tell you!

The new X8 is set to replace the XJ9 as well as our trusty workhorse, the XS9. The “X” typically denotes the capability of the machine to handle high-usage environments such as offices or coffee shops, and the X8 is set to wow us, considering what it is taking the place of.

Instead of making you read an entire article before finding the price, we’ll put you out of your misery; the X8 Platinum will set you back in the region of R 30 000.00,  considerably more than its predecessors – but consider what you are paying for; advanced technologies, developed sciences and some smoking hot looks.

So, what all can we expect from this sleek beast?
