CLOSTER, N.J., March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With its impressive user-friendly operation and captivating design, the new Swiss-made Jura IMPRESSA Z9 One Touch TFT brings affordable luxury to premium automatic coffee centers and offers coffee lovers a true bean-to-cup experience using freshly ground beans instead of pods or capsules.
This is the first model in the elegant Z line to include a state-of-the-art 3.5-inch TFT color display, making it easy to personalize your brew. Graphics and text showcase the type of beverage, number of ounces, coffee strength and amount of milk. Use the TFT display to view and select options: just press the button to choose between eleven coffee specialties, including espresso, coffee, latte macchiato, cappuccino and more. A glowing white light illuminates the cup as it brews.
Also new for the Z line, this model features six programmable beverage buttons that can be labeled by the name of beverage or with peoples' names to denote their favorite brew. It also contains a new Cafe a la Carte function that allows quick setting adjustments during drink preparation to suit individual tastes.
The machine's precision functionality is complemented by stunning design. Produced with outstanding craftsmanship, the new IMPRESSA Z9 One Touch TFT is chrome-plated with an elegant black high-gloss finish. The cappuccino spout can be adjusted up to 6 inches, for a large latte macchiato glass, while the coffee spouts are width and height adjustable up to 4 inches.
The model features Jura's revolutionary Aroma+ grinder, for perfect aroma in all its fullness in half the grinding time. The grinder's high-quality burrs guarantee consistent results throughout the lifetime of the machine.
Jura's exclusive fine foam technology creates finely steamed milk or textured foam with a long-lasting feather-like consistency. The machine comes with a 20-ounce stainless steel vacuum milk container that keeps milk cold and ready to froth or steam on demand for up to eight hours.
The Jura IMPRESSA Z9 One Touch TFT has an actual retail price of $3,599, and is sold at Sur La Table.
