Jura Ena Micro 1

We all love coffee for different reasons but it generally boils down to the rich aromatic taste depending on the method used. Over the past few years, we’ve seen many methods of brewing coffee drinks with many of them being combined with new technology to make them more efficient and easy to use. The Jura ENA Micro 1 takes into account the pressure heating method and combines it with cutting edge technology to create the perfect cup.

Below we take a closer look at brewer’s features in detail.

Quality Material

Besides a unique compact design, the brewer comes encased in black BPA-Free ABS plastic with stainless steel complements for the drip tray and serving spout.

Ultra Compact

The Jura ENA Micro 1 comes in a compact foot print designed to save space without compromising on other features. At only 9 inches wide and 12.7 inches high, the machine is one of the smallest automatic brewers on the market.

Intuitive Touchscreen

The brewer comes with a touch panel designed to make work a lot easier. You can easily select from 3 cup sizes and two different aroma levels with the touch of a button.

Multi-level Conical Grinder

Tired of using K-cups and ground beans? With the Micro 1, you get to use your very own beans to create amazing coffee drinks. Simply pop them in the grinder and with the push of a button, you’ll have your coffee ready in minutes. On top that, the multi-level grinder enables you to have a consistent grind every time.

Aroma Preservation Cover

Once ground, the beans are placed in a sealed area to prevent aroma from escaping. This allow for a richer and tastier coffee.

Thermoblock Heating System

The eating system coupled with a 15-bar pump ensures short water heating times and even shorter waiting periods. While it’s not the fastest brewer, the Micro 1 does a great job and in a short time.

Integrated Rinsing Cycle

Tired of regularly cleaning your coffee maker? Jura went a step further and added an integrated rinsing, cleaning and descaling feature at the touch of a button. This ensures that you no longer have to do that weekly cleaning exercise and extends your brewer’s life. You also get regular updates when cleaning is required on the touch panel.

CLARIS Filter Cartridge

Helps you determine when the best time for a thorough cleaning is.

Adjustable Coffee Spout

So as to accommodate different cup sizes, Jura added an adjustable coffee spout so you can use your favorite coffee mug or cup for brewing.

Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System

After brewing, the coffee is placed in a sealed area so as to allow the brew aroma to fully develop. On top of that, the system ensures that your coffee is ever served at the piping hot optimum temperature for maximum extraction and taste.

Automatic Zero-Energy Saving Mode

If you’re fond of forgetting to turn off the brewer, the Micro 1 will automatically go into a low power state after 5 minutes of inactivity. During this time, it activates a patented zero-energy switch that ensures no energy is used up while idle. On top of that, in case you do leave it on for over two hours, the brewer will cease the zero-energy mode and switch itself off.

Build Quality

Despite being made of plastic, the Jura ENA Micro 1 boasts of a very high quality build like all other Jura products. This is evident after a few months of use when other brewers start failing or develop complications. If still in doubt, be sure to check Amazon reviews for an idea of what to expect.

Final Thoughts

Priced at $797, it’s easy to see why the Jura ENA Micro 1 brewer might be a great choice for coffee lovers who don’t mind the cost. With a healthy rating of 4.3 out of 5 on Amazon, the brewer is no slouch when it comes to performance. I highly recommend it to anyone who’s not shy on spending when it comes to getting a reliable coffee maker.
