A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail from a friend who works with Nestle and she was selling a new espresso machine for a couple hundred dollars. I was about ready to take her up on her offer but I realized that I didn’t have enough money. More so, I have been looking around for other kinds of espresso machines and I have found a couple that are in the more affordable range.
In my quest to look for a workable solution, I ran across a new espresso machine that I would really love to have. Dubbed the Jura Capresso S9 One Touch, this baby is fully automatic. I am not sure but it seems that it is not widely available yet but this site, 1stincoffee, is already offering units. This is the full description of the machine:
The Jura Capresso Impressa S9 One Touch brews from 1 to 16 ounces at a time using just the right amount of fresh ground coffee. The machine features a large 96 oz. removable water tank, 2 stainless steel-lined Thermoblock heating systems and an insulated milk container. Jura Capresso is the 1st and only company to offer One Touch coffee centers with insulated milk containers to keep cold milk cold.
All coffee, milk frothing and hot water functions are fully programmable. You can set the temperature, coffee volume and coffee strength for each button. The Jura Capresso S9 includes an integrated conical burr grinder and a separate coffee shoot for ground coffee. The S9 One Touch also dispenses hot water for tea or Cafe Americano. Other features include: large cup warming area, Clearyl water filtration, Automatic cleaning and rinsing functions, LED Dialog system, electronic sensors and a powerful 18 bar pump.
Now I would really love to get my hands on the S9 One Touch. Unfortunately, it is way too pricey for me at the moment. How much is it selling for? A hefty $2399. Donations, anyone? 😉
