I have had a capresso s9 for over a year. While it makes great latte, can't get a drinkable cup of "starbucks" coffee out of mine either. When I use the special coffee button and ground coffee, I get coffee that is too strong. Iknow the machine is highly adjustable but when I tinkered with it I messed up the latte setting and still got bad coffee. By this I mean that it is too strong and bitter and not hot enough. I found this website today because I was looking for a good coffee maker for "regular coffee". However if the S9 is capable of doing this, I would rather save the money. If any one knows how to adjust the S9 to acheive this this I would greatly appreciate some help. Thanks
My S7 is now over a year old and I'm still very happy with the little "beastie."
I realize that it will never give me that "God Shot" espresso, but it has more than paid for it's purchase price in latte's that I did not buy at some "drive through espresso" stand or Starbucks.
I will still be thrilled when Mark finally gets the chance to write up and post his final review. As good as the machine has been performing for me, I have no doubt that I can set things differently to make it better!
I stopped using my s9. Coffee tastes too watered down on the strongest settings. There is no doubt this machine cannot produce coffee as good as a starbucks. My parents refused to drink coffee from it.
I suspect there is something seriously wrong, not just with my machine, but with this model in general. We haven't had a full review on this in over a year, and Jura is a sponsor on this site. Should I expect the full review this time next year?
Well the "First Look" has scrolled off of the CoffeGeek.com homepage.
I certainly understand that Mark has a WHOLE bunch of other things to do ... but it would certainly be nice if at some point we were able to actually have a full review of the Jura Capresso "S-series" automatics
First, I want to thank the entire crew at Coffeegeek.com for their efforts. My wife & I are casually reading all reviews and most posts, with the end result being a good espresso machine for our home.
Second, I'd like to comment on the S9. From what I've read here, most people want more for their $2200. I would expect awesome coffee/espresso for this price. Perhaps "swiss" coffee is what it's truly designed for.
If you are still around, I would love to get info on how you do the grinder mod on the Krups Orchestro. Even though I'm not big in to super autos, I just picked up one in really good condition for $75. Consequently, I don't have a problem with digging into it to "make it better". When I ground fresh coffee on another grinder and threw it into the bypass, it actually produced a decent shot. However, the internal grinder, as is, grinds too course for a true espresso.
