Jura XJ9 vs Jura J9.3 – The Chrome-Finished Coffee Masters

Jura XJ9 vs Jura J9.3 – The Chrome-Finished Coffee Masters

A plethora of endless options greets you when you search any time of term relating to what coffee machine you should consider for your office space. Some of Jura’s older model coffee machines don’t exactly entice the modernist who appreciates a good aesthetic; undoubtedly they do serve a purpose – to churn out quality coffee in large quantities – but they lack a certain aspect which is their outer finishings.

Both the Jura XJ9 as well as the Jura J9.3 are geared towards office usage, but have fundamental differences in their design and functionality. You might wonder why we aren’t comparing the J9 to the XJ9 – they’re the same thing (but different), right?

The J9 was the entry-level, plain-text display of the J range, while the Jura J9.3 is the more advanced and similar J-range Jura in comparison to the XJ9.

From the outset, we can already see the major differences in these machines.

The XJ9 gets the Oscar in the following categories:

– Considerably larger water tank

– Separate hot water spout

– Extended bean hopper

From just these three factors, it’s clear to see that the XJ9 is far, far better suited to a larger office or even corporate environment. It’s going to be able to produce more coffee, more often – without the hassle of refilling constantly.

Here is a full breakdown of all the differences (and similarities) between the XJ9 and the J9.3:

The verdict in the battle is quite clear cut.

 

If you can answer “yes” to the below – consider opting for the Jura J9.3:

– You require a good-looking, fresh milk bean-to-cup coffee machine.

– You require said machine for a medium sized office space, and are prepared to allocate someone (or do it yourself) to refill the 2.1 litre water tank and 250g bean hopper.

– You are looking for a less costly solution (again, in comparison to the XJ9)

– You anticipate preparing no more than 40 cups of coffee per day.

– You are looking for a quality coffee and impression piece, and not actively trying to save money.

– Your desired placement space has individuals who drink coffee and milk based drinks.

– You are content with great quality foam, but a foam which is comparatively inferior to that provided by the XJ9.

 

Now, if you answer yes to THESE questions, weigh up your options and consider the XJ9 carefully:

– You require a high-volume output machine that is capable of effortlessly combining both a sleek and modern aesthetic with an unstrained output capability.

– You need a machine that can produce quality coffee and milk drinks, and superior (top of the range) quality milk froth.

– You anticipate preparing at least 40, and at most 60 cups of coffee per day. If your usage is going to be lower, investing in this machine may in fact be a financial setback. Weigh up your options here, especially.

– You are prepared to (unfortunately, still) refill the water tank and bean hopper.

– Money is not an issue – you are prepared to pay premium for this premium product.

Neither of these machines will ever save you money. The reason is three-fold; Jura machine do carry a price tag, because they are Swiss-quality products that simply dop not fail. They require fresh milk (a high cost as a stand-alone product) as well as fresh coffee beans. Lastly, I can guarantee that the minute this beauty is wheeled into your office’s front door, prepare to be swarmed. Everyone (probably even non-coffee drinkers) are going to want a piece of this action. Prepare for your first few months to have a higher consumption from a Jura coffee machine for your office, purely for the novelty factor.

Whichever way you choose – enjoy some of the most amazing coffee you could imagine – on tap all the time 🙂
