I promised all of you a bit more technical information about this ENA-4 Jura-Capresso Automatic Coffee Station that we are featuring right now, and I'm going to be as concise as I can since this is a blog post. However, if you have more questions about it please do not hesitate to email us at [email protected], or call the store at 212-787-2000. You can, of course, always stop in to speak to us in the store; we've helped many, many people with coffee makers over the years, and we'd love to help you, too!
OK! So I was thinking about what kind of information is important for people to know about this machine before welcoming it into their kitchens, so I did a lot of research, and came up with the following:
How do I use the machine? It really is easy; if you've already loaded it with water and beans, you just push the button on the top of the machine, and out comes fantastic coffee. It grinds, tamps, and brews coffee into the cup you set under the adjustable-height spout. Then you turn that same button to tell the machine how much coffee to make for you, and how strong you want it. There is also a place for adding preground coffee, which is great for when you want the occasional cup of decaf (or vice versa!).
It's (almost) all about the grinder. If you talk to enough baristas and coffee experts, you will learn that your grinder is a really, really important factor that can make or break your ability to make great coffee. Or even good coffee. The fineness of the grind and how consistent the particle size is have a significant impact on the flavor, texture, and aroma of the finished product. Happily, Jura-Capresso understands this and has equipped their ENA-4 with a commercial grade, solid steel conical burr grinder. It is capable of producing that fine, even grind that is critical to a great espresso. You can easily spend hundreds (and hundreds) on just a grinder of this quality, so it's a sweet deal to get it for this price in a machine that also makes your espresso for you with the touch of a button! You should also know that the grinder is calibrated by hand during assembly in Switzerland.
This machine is like a refrigerator. By that I mean that it is a kitchen appliance that you should expect to use and enjoy for years and years rather than something disposable. Jura-Capresso makes top-of-the-line automatic coffee centers and their customer service is excellent, and anybody who loves great coffee, or, believe it or not, would like to economize if they frequently buy coffee out. OK, so that wasn't technical information but it's a really important thing to realize.The size is also great; it packs all this excellent technology into a slender, beautiful 14"h x 9"w x 17"l.
It can save you money. Yes, really! Here's how:The average American spends about $30 per month on retail brewed coffee. If you invest in an automatic coffee station like the ENA-4 is, it will pay for itself in only 6-7 months. Plus, the coffee will almost certainly taste much better and there's no standing on line every. single. morning. Just the time savings alone should bump up the timeline, right?
I hope I've given you useful information, and remember, you only have until April 25th to also get all of your free gifts with purchase (use coupon code JURA4U), and it qualifies for free ground shipping in Zabar's Home Zone. Wouldn't your office staff/friends getting married/spouse love one of these?
