Jura has been making appliances for the home since 1931. Jura originated in Switzerland and have since expanded into Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, the US, the UK, Australia, Spain, Sweden, and South East Asia. So Jura has genuinely become an International name.
There are several important factors to consider when you’re looking at buying a new Coffee Machine. One of the most important is the reputation and quality of the brand that you are buying from; there’s nothing worse than buying an expensive piece of equipment only to be left disappointed if it doesn’t deliver the quality promised.
Another important consideration is how large of a budget you have when you’re looking to make a purchase; it’s also important to consider what you’ll be using a machine for, whether it will just be for yourself or if you have more than one coffee drinker in your home.
With these important factors in mind, let’s jump in and take a look at the Jura Micro 9.
Jura Micro 9 Review
The Jura Micro 9 is advertised as the world’s smallest One-Tuch automatic Cappuccino machine. With the machine being so small and compact, it fits easily into kitchen space or on any worktop. If space is at a premium in your kitchen, then the Jura Micro 9 is the perfect machine due to its size.
With the Jura Micro 9, you can select from a range of beverage options: Cappuccino, Latte Macchiato and of course an Americano. On top of the machine alongside the different options for Coffee, there is also a hot water button to dispense hot water and a steam button.
There is also a small display screen on top of the machine, where you can program the functions you want, from what Coffee you want too how much water you want there to be with your Coffee.
Through the display screen, you can also choose how strong you want your brew to be, and you can also select to rinse the machine. Finally, there is also a setting where you can select the temperature of your beverage, from ‘High’ and ‘Low’.
Jura has done a really good job with a wide variety of settings on the machine. Along with selecting the strength of your brew, the temperature and the type of coffee you would like, the Jura Micro 9 also has a power save feature, you can also program the machine to turn off after a certain number of hours. This is a great example of Jura making the Micro 9 an energy-efficient machine.
When dispensing the coffee, the machine has two different spouts, one where the coffee comes out of and one where the milk dispenses. This is an excellent addition from Jura as it assures perfect hygiene.
The integrated splash guard prevents milk or coffee from entering the machine while the drink is being prepared. The machine is also straightforward to clean, most of it can be simply wiped down with a damp cloth.
The coffee beans are stored at the back of the machine, and the beans are kept fresh by a specialized silicone seal that keeps the bean container airtight, this helps keep the beans fresh for a long time.
The dual spout is height adjustable on a continuous scale (2-5.4 in) which gives plenty of room to fit your cup under there. The machine also has a removable drip tray, that you can remove to clear any spills or drips, and the drip tray is easy to clean.

Alternative Machines To Consider
The reputation and quality of the Jura brand are indisputable. They obviously offer a huge variety of coffee machines. We will have a look at two hot models that might be a great alternative to Jura Micro 9.
An alternative machine to consider by Jura is the Micro One. The Jura Micro One is aimed more at being an Espresso machine rather than all-around coffee machine like the Jura Micro 90. The Jura Micro One is a very simple machine to use. There is a touch panel on the machine with three user-defined cup sizes and two aroma levels to choose from. The machine only has 5 buttons in total, so it is a very simple machine to use.
The Jura Micro One is an ultra-compact machine, reduced to the absolute minimum size: 9 x 12.7 x 17.5 inches.
The Jura Micro One has numerous benefits and features to it:
- Like the Jura Micro 90, the Jura Micro One is an energy efficient machine and comes with an automatic energy saving mode and the machine can be programmed to turn off after each use.
- The Jura Micro One comes with a large 1.1-liter removable water tank which can be accessed at the back of the machine, it also has a water filtration system that can be used to remove chlorine or any other substances that may affect the flavor of the water.
- The only real downside of the machine is that because it is so compact it can only produce one cup of Espresso at a time.
- The Jura Micro One is another high-quality machine and is a slightly cheaper alternative to the Jura Micro 9, so it is worth considering what you’re budget is before buying a machine.
Another alternative machine to consider is the Jura Micro 90. This machine has more in common with the Jura Micro 9 than the Jura Micro One. The machine produces lattes, macchiatos, and cappuccinos rather than just being an Espresso machine.
The Jura Micro 90 has many similar features to the Jura Micro 9:
- Entirely programmable settings, you can choose the temperature of your brew.
- You can choose the machine to turn off automatically after a certain period of time.
- The display screen and operating module are clearly layed out, giving the machine a feel of elegance and simplicity. You can select which beverage you want, the temperature of your brew, and how much water you want to have.
- The machine is very compact and will fit into a small space. Its dimensions are: 17.5 x 9.1 x 12.7 inches and weighs 20.7 pounds.
- Advanced fine foam technology creates fine, incredibly light milk fam every time. The machine is straightforward to clean and can be done so with a damp cloth.
The last alternative on our list is Jura J80. You can check a complete review of this great machine here.
