Jura Capresso Ena 9 – One Touch
When Jura and Capresso, two of the big espresso equipment companies have merged, I was a little disappointed, because this means less competition. However, I realized soon that by joining forces, the two manufacturers could make espresso machines that will stand apart from the crowd. And this is what happened in fact. Jura Capresso Ena 9 is one of the greatest super automatic espresso machines on the market.
With features to help you automate making espresso based drinks, it removes all of the guessing behind nailing a perfect espresso, and foaming the milk to perfection. And best of all, all this with the press of a button.
