How to configure your machine ?

This video will guide you through the initial setup and configuration of your coffee machine:

How to prepare a hot beverage?

Four products are displayed on your machine's screen: coffee, espresso, hot water, and cappuccino. Simply click on the desired product, and it will flow into your cup. If you press the ">" button (located at the bottom right of the machine's screen), you will discover other preparations (such as Latte and other milk-based specialties).

To launch two preparations simultaneously, press the corresponding preparation button twice (within a one-second interval). In this case, you need to place two cups under the coffee outlet.

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

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

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

How to prepare decaffeinated coffee?

Using the ground coffee funnel located at the back of the machine (behind the bean hopper, on the left), you can easily prepare decaffeinated coffee for those days when you need less caffeine.

A few recommendations before you embark on this adventure:

  • Never pour more than two doses of ground coffee. It's not a reservoir but a funnel.
  • If you haven't added enough ground coffee, your machine will alert you with the message "not enough ground coffee."
  • When you have placed the ground coffee, prepare your coffee within a minute.

The process is as follows:

  1. Open the lid of the ground coffee funnel and add the decaffeinated coffee (approximately 10g).
  2. Close the lid. The machine automatically recognizes 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 a decaffeinated coffee. Note that you can follow the same process for other preparations using ground coffee.

How to adjust the grinder?

The grinder adjustment (the black hatch located on the right when facing the machine) should never be used. If you find the grind fineness inappropriate, please contact us, and we will assist you.

How to fill the water reservoir?

Daily maintenance and hygiene are essential to ensure a consistently perfect result in your cup. That's why you need to change the water daily. Only pour cold water into your machine.

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

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 task, you can refer to the corresponding article.

How to fill the coffee bean hopper?

When your machine runs out of coffee beans, it will notify you with a message on the screen. That's when it's time to refill the hopper!

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

    The Jura X6 does not have a ground coffee chute. The black hatch (located on the left when facing the machine) is solely reserved for cleaning tablets.

    How to properly maintain your coffee machine?

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

      • Cleaning your coffee machine, which is required every 180 preparations. A message will appear on the machine's screen.
      • Changing the water filter when the filter symbol turns red.
      • Descaling your coffee machine when prompted by the machine.
      All of these articles are also listed on this summary page and in the manual.
