Gone In 60 Seconds! The Jura Impressa C5 Superautomatic Coffee Center does it all since it grinds, tamps, brews and self-cleans in less than 60 seconds. Yes, this compact, fully automatic espresso machine from Jura produces espresso like a dream and includes a water filtration system, built-in grinder, and a relatively large capacity despite its diminutive stature. While it does not have all the functions of the older (and more expensive) espresso counterparts in the Jura line, the more pocketbook friendly Impressa C5 certainly delivers fast, efficiently and deliciously.

Features & Functionality of the Jura Impressa C5

  • Small with Hidden Multitudes: Despite the small footprint of the machine, it has a 7-ounce bean container and a 64-ounce water container. You might say it's the TARDIS of espresso makers.
  • High-Quality Flavor and Purity: The stainless steel Thermoblock heating system and a 15-bar pressure pump guarantees aromatic, high-pressure brewed coffee and a strong layer of crema. The Clearyl Water Filtration System purifies water and reduces the need for decalcification.
  • Helpful Maintenance Indicators: Those red indicator lights let you know when the machine needs more water, beans, or is ready for a cleaning. A handy insert slips into a pocket on the front of the machine reminds you what symbol means what.
  • Fresh Whole Beans or Grounds: Don't want the noise or hassle of grinding yourself? Use the funnel attachment to feed your favorite pre-ground coffee. Rather have the control of your grind? The professional grade conical steel burr grinder has six settings designed to deliver maximum flavor. Regardless, the Impressa will let you know when it's time for a refill.
Pros
  • Compact - Petite in size, this superautomatic machine still has a substantial coffee bean hopper and water tank.
  • Budget-Friendly - The Jura Impressa C5 is an economical choice for the amount of features it has.
Cons
  • No Oily Beans - As is the case with most superautomatics, the Impressa C5's grinder is not oily bean friendly.
  • No Automatic Frothing - This machine does not have the FrothXpress or one-touch automatic frothing.
  • Less Control - You have programmable control over the water volume, but not the temperature or the shot dosage. You can adjust this manually as the shot is brewing.

How Does it Compare?

There is less programmability with the Jura Impressa C5 than with the C9 version, but it still features a lot of the base functionality.

J B: I have only used my frother a few times, and it does have a tapered tip, but I can't tell you whether you can do latte art. I've not tried that. I'm usually just making espresso - single or double. John Apr 6, 2012

Sarah L. asked: I saw in the review that the C5 has a cup warmer, however all other sites claim it does not. Can you clarify? Thanks! Jan 1, 2014

Thomas W: There is a flat surface on the top of the C5 that Juro calls a cup warmer, but in practice it does not serve that purpose. That surface slowly gets warm when the machine is on, but it does not get warm enough quickly enough to be of any serious use. Juro recommends warming your cup with hot water from the water/steam spout, and that works well. Alternatively, one can use hot water from one's faucet to warm the cups. Either way, pre-warming the cups is a good idea. We don't consider the non-functional cup warmer to be a drawback at all and couldn't be happier with our C5. Both the coffee and the espresso it makes are superb. Jan 2, 2014

M C R: Hi Sarah,
No, this machine does not have a cup warmer. There is an area on top of the machine where you can store cups, but it does not warm up when the machine is on.
I've had mine for about 1.5 years and really like it, however.

Leah M: There is no cup warmer. I think the top was meant to warm them with ambient machine temp. I warm my cups with steam or hot water from the steam wand Jan 2, 2014

dirk s asked: Hi I am considering the C5 or the ENA series, from the specs the C5 seems to have a auto-off, how long enforce it turns off? Does the C5 also have the zero-pull like the ENA5? Jan 9, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
J B: Dirk,
The Jura C5 has a rinse and shut-off feature that comes with a 4 hour factory setting. I know you can reset that - I have mine set to rinse/shut-off in an hour. I make one or two cups, and then I'm done, so I won't be coming back for more till another day.

I'm not sure what you mean by "zero-pull" unless you mean the zero energy switch, which uses no power when the machine is turned off.

My C5 will shut-off at my desired one hour timeframe, then it will stay in a low power standby mode. I usually reach around back and turn the machine totally off - which would be using zero power. If you made coffee several times a day; and virtually everyday, you might want to leave it in standby mode. The C5 warms up very quickly, so I haven't found that to be a problem at all. I put in fresh water, the machine warms up and flushes out the system with water, then I usually run one shot through to make sure everything is warmed up, then I warm up my cup with the hot water/steamer, before making my coffee.

Good luck.

Kevin W: Dirk: I was so impressed with my first C5, that I bought a second one for our other home in Traverse City, Michigan. The C5 auto-off can be adjusted from not active, to 1,2,4,or 8 hour settings. I'm not familiar with the zero-pull feature.

Kindest regards,

Janice B asked: We have had our Jura C5 for over 3 years and love it - deal with the "not quite hot enough" by preheating mugs with boiling water. Lately we have been having quite a bit of water collecting in the tray, even if we always have a receptacle to catch the rinse water. We also clean and descale when prompted. Where is the water coming from? Feb 3, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
M C R: I can't really answer your question because I don't know where it comes from. I don't believe I've had the problem if I shut the machine off or have a cup there always. I've noticed that after a couple of hours of sitting idle, the machine will rinse automatically. Therefore I try to be careful to shut the machine off between uses. If you do that and/or If you always have a cup there to catch the water, I don't know how water would get into the tray. Good luck. Feb 3, 2014
Reply to M C Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Leah M: I am not sure. I would unplug the machine for a couple minutes. Make sure the steam wand is all the way off and remove the drip tray to see the are any visible leaks. The only way water gets into the drip tray would be during rinse or if there is a leak. I would thenprobably make sure my drip tray is empty and brew a couple cycles to see if the water accumulates during brewing. At least then you would know where water comes from. Feb 3, 2014

A shopper asked: I bought a C5 about two years ago and I love this machine. Recently, however, it has started to produce VERY watery coffee despite having the dial cranked to the strongest brew strength. Has anybody else had this problem? And if so, did you find a successful solution? Would love any advice. Thanks! Feb 10, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
J B: My C5 is about 1.5 years old. I have not had that problem. In talking with Jura customer service, I found that in using dark roast beans, you get a stronger coffee with a coarser grind. You may also need to clean out your tamper. Call Jura customer service and they can explain how to reach up in the middle of the machine and clean out the tamping device (all trays have to be out). Good luck. Feb 11, 2013
Reply to J Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kevin W: I have two of the machines, and have not had the issue as described. I'm surprised that Jura has not offered a solution to your problem. What ever you find out, please post the results. Good luck. Feb 11, 2013

Carmen W asked: Why is this model being discontinued & is there a comparable model available? Jun 18, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Unfortunately I am not sure why Jura has discontinued this C5 machine, and we do not offer a comparable unit that offers a steam wand. Most Jura machines are now automatic frothing, and so the best alternative machine that has automatic frothing with a larger tank is the Impressa F7, or with a smaller tank you could check out the Ena Micro 9.

A shopper asked: The description of this machine on the Jura site implies that American-style coffee can be made at a turn of the dial. Is that true or is this an espresso-only machine? Nov 26, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Yes, you can brew an Americano on this Jura C5, which is basically a shot of espresso with more water pulled through to dilute. Hope this helps clarify! Nov 26, 2013

Steve M asked: I would like to know how many grams of coffee the Jura C5 uses to produce a shot. Also, then how many grams does the F50 use in standard and robust modes? Nov 19, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The Jura machines have an internal coffee brewing chamber for 16 grams of coffee maximum, with the exception of the Ena Micro, which allows for just 10 grams maximum. Nov 27, 2012

In the realm of supers out there the C5 holds it's own very well. It may not have all the bells and whistles but i believe it to be an excellent machine. Theres always a little angst involved in setting up a new machine but, take a couple breaths, it's easy! Once set up is done.. it makes an excellent espresso. The only real drawback is the foamer. I've had a couple Saecos before this and have alway been able to make good foam. This frother eludes me. I can't get it right. (Jura even sent me a new tip). Do yourself a favor and buy the professional fine foam frother as an accessory.. you won't regret it! The foam is a little low on temp but it's by far the best for making a cappuccino..

I have been using this machine for just over a year, making 5-6 cups per day. The cleaning sequence takes some getting used to. The steamer knob can be difficult to rotate if your hand is wet. Aside from these issues I have had no problems. Lots of friends have commented on the great coffee.

The C5 meets our expectations especially for the cost. The only feature that we'd like to see is the ability to set the water temperature (it could be hotter). But apart from that we're very happy with our selection.

Pros:
Great Taste, Stylish, Easy To Use, Quick Brewing

Cons:
Limited control

So far so good! I've used my Jura C5 everyday since I got it home. Sometimes I'll use it up to 5 or 6 times a day. It is truly a great machine with ease of use. I love it and can't understand how I lived without one before.
