Subject: Specialty Coffee settings for Jura J9.3
 

Hi everyone

I have recently purchased a Jura J9.3 machine for our new home.  I have NO experience with making a coffee but thoroughly enjoy my daily dose (my coffee of choice is a skim cap).

I have been playing around with the settings on the J9.3 but do not seem to be able to get it right.  

I am hoping someone could advise on their recommended set up in for each speciality coffee i.e.

 - cappuccino
 - expresso
 - latte macchiato
 - coffee
 - ristretto

in terms of the variable settings on the machine i.e.

 - volume (coffee water)
 - milk time (seconds)
 - coffee strength

It would be a great base for me to start in setting up the machine.  Any help would be great!  I understand that it would change depending on the coffee bean being used but is there a "default" in relation to the above variables in making specialty coffees?

Thanks in advance!
Owen

Be aware that most people here laugh at super-automatics. I know, I have one.

I have a very old F9. We don't make Capp's in it. Just coffee. While they claim to make espresso, they really do not have enough bars IMHO. It's not a bad drink, just not espresso enough, I guess. It's okay for pouring a shot in hot chocolate ;)

I generally buy high middle to low high end beans and I stick with lighter to medium roasts. Darker roasts are too oily and do not come out good imho.

Mine does not have as many fancy settings as yours does. But I used the settings it came with to start (since I bought it used). We upped the volume in the large cup a bit, about half an ounce I think. And it works for most of what we do in it.

I use it at work because we found that we were throwing too much away. One day hardly anyone would drink any. Another people would beg for more. This way, people can make it at the push of a button.

My SIL's work bought an automatic too, but not a Jura an he says it makes nasty coffee. I can't remember what brand it was. It was something cheap.

Good luck with your new toy, and just keep playing with it.

Thank you so much for your reply.  Yep totally understand that the majority will laugh at my question and the fact I'm using a super-automatic.  I obviously don't expect it to be to the standard of my local coffee guys but sometimes its just nice to have the convenience.  Appreciate you not mocking me :)

Thanks heaps for your advise.  I actually didn't really think about it... I suppose anyone on Coffee Geek wouldn't really be using a Jura eh!? ha ha.  Ooops.  Never know I might bump into someone lazy like me!  Hopefully the Jura guys will get back to me too.

Thanks again!
