How to prepare a hot beverage:

On the screen of your machine, you will see four products: coffee, espresso, hot water, and cappuccino. Simply click on the product of your choice, and it will flow into your cup. If you press the ">" button (located at the bottom right of the screen), you will discover other preparations (Latte and other milk-based specialties).

To start two preparations simultaneously, press the corresponding preparation button twice (within approximately 1 second). In this case, you need to place two cups under the coffee spout (of course!).

You can stop the preparation of a coffee specialty or hot water at any time by pressing any button.

During certain preparations, you can adjust the coffee strength by pressing the "<" and ">" buttons (located in the middle on the left and right sides of the screen). Additionally, for all preparations, you can modify the pre-set amounts of milk or water by pressing these same buttons.

The preparation stops automatically, and your Jura is ready to use.

How to prepare decaffeinated coffee:

Using the ground coffee funnel located at the back of the machine (behind the bean container on the left side), you can easily prepare decaffeinated coffee for those less tired days.

Some recommendations before embarking on this adventure:

  • Never pour more than two scoops of ground coffee. It is not a reservoir but a funnel.
  • If you haven't poured enough ground coffee, your machine will display the message "Not enough ground coffee."
  • Once you have added the ground coffee, prepare your coffee within a minute.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open the lid of the ground coffee funnel and pour in the decaffeinated coffee (approximately 10g).
  2. Close the lid. The machine will automatically recognize that it has received ground coffee and will use it for the next coffee.
  3. Press the "Coffee" button, and the machine will serve you decaffeinated coffee. Note that you can follow the same process for other preparations using ground coffee.

How to adjust the grinder

The grinder adjustment, located to the right of the ground coffee funnel (when facing the machine), should never be used. If you feel that the grind size is inappropriate, please contact us, and we will assist you.

How to fill the water tank

Daily maintenance and hygiene are essential to ensure a consistently perfect result in your cup. Therefore, you should change the water daily. Only pour cold water into your machine.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open the lid of the water tank.
  2. Remove the water tank and rinse it with cold water.
  3. Fill the water tank with fresh water and place it back in position.
  4. Close the lid of the water tank.

You may notice that a water filter has already been installed by a Javry professional. When the filter symbol turns red (on the machine's screen), it's time to replace the filter. To perform this procedure, you can refer to the respective guide.

How to fill the coffee bean container:

When your machine runs out of coffee beans, it will indicate this with a message on the screen. That's when it's time to fill the container!

Follow these steps:

  1. Remove the aroma preservation cover.
  2. Remove any impurities or foreign bodies.
  3. Fill the coffee bean container with coffee beans and close the aroma preservation cover.

    How to maintain your coffee machine:

    To ensure the proper functioning of your coffee machine, several steps should be followed:

    • Clean your coffee machine after every 180 cups. A message will appear on your machine's screen.
    • Clean the milk system daily.
    • Change the water filter when the filter symbol turns red.
    • Descale your coffee machine when prompted by the machine.
