[wpg width=”225″ height=”300″ align=”right”]CLOSTER, NJ – Combining unsurpassed Swiss technology with remarkable ease of use and customization options, the Jura IMPRESSA XJ9 Professional, part of Jura’s exclusive Professional line, is an automatic coffee center designed for lodges, bed and breakfasts, cafés, offices, boutiques, galleries, catering operations and other small-scale hospitality venues that offer first class service.
The IMPRESSA XJ9 Professional is preprogrammed to create 10 different popular espresso-based beverages – including latte macchiato, cappuccino, café crème, espresso, ristretto and more – at the touch of one button, without moving the cup. With its state-of-the-art TFT color screen, this “one touch” automatic coffee center makes it easy and convenient to offer the best in espresso-based beverages without the need to hire or train a professional barista.
The user-friendly 3.5-inch TFT color display is the key to the machine’s intuitive operation. Combining words and graphics, the screen guides patrons through the process, making it easy to select beverage type, coffee strength, brew temperatures and number of ounces for a personalized drink.
Jura’s Intelligent Pre Brew Aroma System extracts maximum flavor and aroma from any blend or roast of coffee. The machine utilizes ThermoBlock technology at 15 bars of pressure, preparing superior espresso or crema coffee cup by cup. A height and width-adjustable coffee spout and a height-adjustable cappuccino spout accommodate small designer cups or cups or glasses as tall as 6 inches.
Another Jura innovation is fine foam technology, which creates professional-quality milk foam with a fine, feather-light consistency. This function can also be used for creating delicious frothy hot chocolate. The machine can also serve up hot water for tea on demand.
The extra large capacity 135-ounce water tank and the ample 17.6-ounce bean container are sufficiently sized to accommodate a morning rush during breakfast, without requiring constant refilling. An aroma preservation cover for the bean container keeps beans fresh right in the machine.
The bean-to-cup experience of the IMPRESSA XJ9 Professional offers a distinct economical advantage over pod or capsule brewing systems. Brewing cup by cup with freshly ground coffee means a significantly lower ingredient cost and reduced packaging waste, plus a richer cup of coffee.
The stunning design of the IMPRESSA XJ9 Professional combines a brilliant silver finish with black accents, to create a crisp, clean design that is welcoming in any environment. It measures 13.4 by 19.7 by 17.3 inches.
With integrated rinsing, cleaning and descaling cycles, the IMPRESSA XJ9 Professional is extremely easy to maintain, minimizing down time, while maximizing quality and hygiene with a minimum of effort.
Meeting Jura’s high standards of eco-intelligent design, the IMPRESSA XJ9 Professional features an Energy Save Mode (E.S.M.) that uses 40 percent less energy than a traditional espresso machine, plus a Zero-Energy Switch that ensures that no energy whatsoever is used when the machine is turned off but still plugged in. The machine can also be programmed to automatically switch to standby mode after a certain time.
The coffee experience can be enhanced with optional Jura accessories including the Jura Cup Warmer and Jura Cool Control Basic, which stores and chills up to 20 ounces of milk on the countertop.
Swiss made, the Jura IMPRESSA XJ9 Professional is part of the Jura Professional line now available in the U.S. The list price is $3,299. For more information, contact Jura Capresso at 800-767-3554, or visit www.us.jura.com.
