The GIGA 5 takes the Clearyl Blue filter by Jura. Insert it into the water tank, fill the tank and the machine will walk you through an auto rinse cycle. This adds water to the drip tray so make sure you start with an empty drip tray.

We Love It!Review by Wacky Brakke
Value Quality Price
We got this machine today, got it all setup and proceeded to make some different coffee beverages. The 2 grinders are nice, we have regular in one and decaf in the other. The grinders are fast and quite. The hoppers are removable, there is a panel on the back you open. Then push a red lever to close the hopper and it lifts right out. Thats a very nice feature because now it is very easy to change beans. We replaced a Jura Impressa Z5 with this Giga 5, the Impressa Z5 always lacked a little bit when it came to getting a hot enough beverage. The Giga 5 produces a very hot beverage, in fact so hot I might get into the programming and adjust it down some. So thats very nice too, nice that it can produce plenty of heat to make a very hot beverage. Overall very pleased with the Giga 5!
