Jura has designed a milk-cooling companion compatible with IMPRESSA and ENA One Touch coffee centers. The Cool Control Basic is a mini milk fridge that can sit to the left or the right of either machine. Easy, convenient, and good looking, the low-wattage, low-noise motor costs just pennies a day to operate.

Does your dream latte have miles of velvet microfoam swirled on top? The best way to serve light-as-air milk foam and hot milk for trendy speciality coffees is to keep the milk fresh at 39 °F prior to heating and frothing. Add cold milk and the Jura Cool Control Basic will bring the temperature down until it reaches 39 °F, it is then maintained constantly within that optimum range. This pre-set temperature guard prevents freezing and saves energy. The high-quality, 20 ounce stainless steel inner container is easy to remove and is dishwasher safe. The Jura Cool Control Basic is easy to open, fill with milk, and even store in the refrigerator as needed.

Also available in a larger 34 ounce capacity as the Jura Cool Control.

Pros
  • Cools 20 Ounces of Milk - Jura's Cool Control Basic keeps the right amount of milk available at the perfect chilled temperature.
  • Looking Good! - Designed with Jura's good looks, a small countertop footprint, and the flexibility to be placed to the left or the right of your Jura coffee center.
Cons
  • Frequent Cleaning - Remember to clean the stainless steel inner container and hose assembly often.
  • Power Station - Another cord on the counter, this mini fridge needs an outlet too.

Teri KStaff: The best place to buy any replacement parts for a Jura machine is from Jura Capresso directly. We cannot work on their machines and so we're therefore unable to get any parts like the milk tubes from them. Jura can be reached at 800-767-3554. Jun 12, 2014

Agron S asked: I have a jura impressa f9. Would this work for that and if so does it come with all the parts necessary to connect it to the wand? Jan 20, 2014

Teri KStaff: This Cool Control Basic is a refrigerated unit that comes with the thermal container and the tubes/hoses necessary for connecting it to the automatic milk frothing system of your Jura machine, however it cannot modify a panarello (what Jura calls a 2-Stage Frothing Nozzle) into an automatic milk frother (what they call a Professional Fine Foam Frother). The F9 comes with the panarello, and so this Cool Control would not modify your unit, but Jura may be able to offer you more insight if they have parts that can allow for this modification if you contact them at 800-767-3554. Hope this helps clarify! Jan 20, 2014

A shopper asked: Will other brands' milk tubes fit into the hole of this machine? Sep 3, 2013

Teri KStaff: From what I could test, none of the connectors for a brand other than Jura would fit in the Cool Control Basic. I don't know if there is a connector available that would fit and allow you to connect this to a machine other than a Jura. Sep 3, 2013

Introduction to the Jura Cool Control

I have both the original Cool Control and this Basic. I recommend this one over the other model. It has the following advantages: (1) the top is better insulated and produces less sweating, (2) it contains half the milk volume (better temperature regulation), (3) thermostatically controlled fan, so it isn't running ALL the time, (4) it keeps the milk colder, and (5) it produces less noise while running. The only downside to the Basic is that I like the one-piece tubing on the original model. I purchased it as a part direct from Jura for about $10 and retrofitted it to the Basic.

Buyers should also be aware that the foaming method Jura uses is convenient but do not result in what I consider true cappuccino quality. I measured the foamed milk temperatures and the highest reading was 153F. True foamed milk needs to reach 192F. That is temperature that milk proteins polymerize, turn slightly sweet, the sound of the steam changes, and further foaming is impossible because the froth expands out of the container. The take-away: this method produces excellent cafe au lait ( at a temperature similar to Starbucks, which dispenses at 160F) but not what I would call a true latte or cappuccino.

Now, for some direct talk on food safety. I am not pleased with the original Cool Control's temperature regulation in my not-fully air-conditioned kitchen. It could keep milk in the recommended temperature range (below 40F) when room temperatures went above 72-74F. In side-by-side testing the Basic kept the milk about 3.5F cooler, an important advantage. However, I think that all products of this type should have excess cooling capacity and a digital temperature setting with feedback, so that you can set the temperature to 39F, say, and be darn sure that it is 39F.

Two other items of note. In discussions with Jura reps on my temperature measurements, I was surprised that they advocated leaving the milk container in the fridge at night or if you were not using it for a while. This is not what their advertising implies. Oh, yes, and both models are made in China, not Switzerland.

Despite these caveats and shortcomings, I use the Basic every day for its convenience. We have become inseparable. As Charlton Heston said at the NRA convention, they will have to claw it from my "cold, dead hands."
