Jura Capresso once again manages to pull off a great espresso machine design with the Impressa C5. The Impressa line of espresso machines have built up a nearly unscathable reputation. Wealthy espresso aficionados world wide are savoring every sip brewed by their Impressa machines.
And truth be told… while Jura Capresso might not be known for its low prices, it is definitely known for its extremely high quality espresso shots. You really do get what you pay for. Most people will have to save up for this one. Either that, or you have to have some disposable income.
But if you can afford the Impressa C5, and if you are a very big fan of espresso, then this might just be the investment of the decade for you.
Features O’ Plenty
The Jura Capresso Impressa C5 is a high end espresso machine that’s got all the bells and whistles you could possibly ask for. It has a built in tamper, water filter, grinder, steam wand, timer and a spacious and removable water tank (8 cups).
It also has a self priming pump and the maximum pressure is 15 bars. At 1450 watts, this is no energy saver. But then again, if you intend to use this machine at home, you won’t have to leave it on all day anyway. So the power consumption can be forgiven.
The Impressa C5 can make cappuccinos, lattes, crema coffee and espressos, ofcourse. There is room for experimentation with your brew on this machine, but it still manages to remain very user friendly with its controls.
No Hassle Maintenance
The machine opens up and lets you cleanse its inner parts fairly easily. You can use tablets to give the innards a proper rinsing from time to time. There is no need to do this more than once a week. But twice a month is also acceptable.
It also helps to replace the filters whenever you are cleaning it. Good maintenance will increase the lifespan of this already very durable machine. But with a machine at this price, you will definitely also want to perform proper maintenance. Assuming you want to squeeze every penny out of it, ofcourse.
The Jura Capresso Impressa C5 is one of the most modifiable espresso machines out there. It has a connector system which has been eloquently named ‘Connector System’, to which you can connect accessories that are sold separately.
Think of the Easy Cappuccino Frother, the Professional Cappuccino Frother or just a simple hot water nozzle that you can use for a simple cup of tea.
There are many more accessories for the Impressa C5. All the accessories in combination with a large number of possible settings give you plenty of room for experimentation.
With little practice, you’ll be brewing the tastiest drinks with the thickest layers of cream you’ve seen in a while. The average coffee shop can’t hold a candle to this.
Where Can I Buy The Jura Capresso Impressa C5 At A Discount?
A lot of people are asking that question, because let’s be honest… this is on cheap machine. But why spend a few hundred more than necessary? It pays off to look for a cheap Impressa C5 online, because a few minutes of research might very well make the difference between paying $1200 or $1000.
Buy the Impressa C5 on Amazon, where it’s listed at a pretty low price. That’s my advice to you. And when I say ‘low price’ I mean in comparison with other retailer’s prices, ofcourse. Amazon shipped this espresso machine straight to my door with no further costs. Great service. Would buy again.
