Crew Review: Jura GIGA 5 - Redux!
Last, but in no way whatsoever least, in our series of refreshed Jura espresso machine reviews is the GIGA 5, an almost-ridiculously featured one-touch superautomatic that offers functionality like no other home machine available on the market.
In addition to its dapper case design, gorgeous, full color TFT navigation screen and one-touch cappuccino functionality, the GIGA 5 also rocks unique features such as dual coffee bean hoppers -- which you can use to custom blend your beans -- and an integrated Barista Menu that offers nearly 30 different programmable and customizable beverages, plus a slew of somewhat quirky guided recipes.
Crafting your cappuccino or latte macchiato at the touch of a button, the GIGA 5 is pretty much the top of the line where superautomatic espresso machines are concerned. We think the GIGA 5 is the machine of choice for gourmet home kitchens, small office break rooms or as a complementary service in a business environment such as a car dealership, art gallery or design studio.
But its singular features and exceptional functionality does come at a relatively high cost; if there has to be a drawback on this machine, it would be its price tag. Otherwise, it's hard to go wrong with this gem!
