1) size of water tank (71 vs 96 oz)
2) 1 thermoblock vs 2
3) bean capacity (8 oz vs 10 oz)
If you are one or two folks using the machine the J9 should be fine. I have had it for a few days now and am liking it a lot (one person). Daily-end-of-day milk frother cleaning before shutdown takes less than 5 minutes. J9 also apears to have more displays/pictures. Nov 21, 2011

Jura J9, Oh dear........Review by Pond44
Price Value Quality
Researched for a long time and decided on the J9, bad move!
Milk temperature is no where hot enough even if you use their cup warmer, complained to the company, they took it back for a test, I thought they would find something wrong but no it was to their standard. It is a nice looking machine makes good blacks but we don't bother using it to make milk coffees anymore, it was an embarrassment to serve coffee to friends, so we just make a black and add milk.
Not recommended by me.

Enjoyable and FoolproofReview by Eileen
Price Value Quality
I purchased this machine as a Christmas gift to myself and have thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. It is very pretty to look at and is a nice addition to my kitchen. While I was intrigued by the real espresso machines with the portafilters, steam wands, dials etc. I knew I would do nothing but look at it and never really appreciate its abilities. The Jura machines seemed to be more my speed with the ability to make milk based drinks which I enjoy. I am still experimenting with the settings for different types of drinks but this machine seems pretty foolproof. It has become a ritual for my young grandsons to have a hot chocolate after swimming. Turn the A/C down, fire on,bundle up and make hot chocolate. Best you can do in Florida in the winter! Great entertainment and family time. This may be a bit superficial for true coffee affiicionados but as SCG reminds us there is something for everyone and this is a great something for my needs.

Expensive, but well worth itReview by Kirsten
Price Value Quality
The J9 has everything needed to make a large variety of hot beverages that require hot water and/or hot milk. The coffee is super creamy and has a very good flavor. The instructions are very detailed and easy to follow. Strength and quantity of your coffee is easy to program, making a perfect cup of coffee, or whatever, every time. I just love my new coffee machine.
Seattle Coffee Gear delivered my order as promised in my shipping option without damage or blemish.

Best Coffee I've ever had at home!Review by Seth
Quality Price Value
Over the years I've had many drip coffee makers, some okay (Cuisinart, Bunn) and one exceptional (Technivorm Moccamaster). But I have wanted a Jura superautomatic machine ever since I sampled some coffee from a Jura S9 some years ago. It tasted so good that I knew at some point in the future I would buy a Jura superautomatic. And as good as drip coffee is, there is no way, in my opinion, that it can match the taste from a machine like a Jura.
So after a lot of research, and reading countless reviews, I decided to buy a Jura J9 One Touch TFT. I placed my order from the very nice folks here at Seattle Coffee Gear, and within a week or so I had my brand new J9! After unpacking it and setting it on the counter with both a Jura cup warmer and milk cooler complementing it, I was ready to start using this gorgeous machine.
Setting it up via the TFT color display was a breeze. And from the first cup of coffee, espresso, and cappuccino it made, I have been so spoiled with this machine. I can honestly say that I will never go back to regular drip coffee now. The milk foam that this machine produces is fantastic! The thing that I have learned with nearly four months of every day use, is keeping the frother attachment super clean it vital! Just using regular water with no Jura cappuccino cleaner liquid just won't get the frother clean enough.
And having to remove and disassemble the frother attachment isn't the funnest thing to do. So What I did is set the machine to rinse immediately. So now after I make the amount of milk based drinks I want, I press the center button on top of the machine and it rinses the frother. This really helps to keep the milk from drying inside the attachment as quickly.
I know that using the Jura cappuccino cleaning solution can get pricey, but in my experience, its use is essential to keep this part working optimally. So after I know that the milk frother will not be used again that day, I go ahead and do a full frother cleaning using the Jura solution. And so far, by doing it this way, it has kept the milk frother working excellent.
Also very important is to always clean the machine, change the filter (if using one), as soon as the machine asks you to. I also empty the drip tray and coffee grounds daily. By keeping up with the maintenance on this machine, you will always be rewarded with the finest tasting coffee creations this machine produces.
In summary, so far I am LOVING my Jura J9 TFT! I hope it lasts me for many years, as I look forward to my specialty coffee everyday.
On a scale of 10, I give the J9 TFT a 10+. I highly recommend this machine!

Great Machine But.........Review by x
Price Value Quality
Very easy to use and makes a good espresso, latte, cap.
However, temperature is a major issue. Lattes and caps are warm and espressos/coffees are just hot enough for the first few minutes.
I am returning mine.
