The Jura ENA Micro 1 Automatic Coffee Center is tiny but mighty, delivering a gourmet cup of espresso or coffee with an ultra-compact footprint. Unlike many single cup brewers on the market, the ENA Micro 1 delivers a true bean-to-cup experience by grinding fresh beans right before brewing, eliminating the need for plastic-tasting capsules or stale paper pods. The intuitive touchscreen interface is simple to operate, allowing you to program three cup sizes and select from two dosage levels depending on how strong you'd like your cup.
Features and Functionality of the ENA Micro 1 Automatic Coffee Center
Ultra-compact: Measuring in at 9 inches wide, 17.5 inches deep and 12.7 inches high, this machine is Jura's smallest superautomatic on the market.
Programmability: Program three different cup sizes (ristretto, espresso or coffee) and select from two dosage levels (8 to 10 grams of ground coffee) to brew the perfect cup.
Touchscreen Technology: The touch panel features illuminated icons for each cup size, in addition to prompting you for regular machine maintenance.
Conical Burr Grinder:: The professional grade grinder gently grinds beans before brewing.

How Does it Compare?
The ENA Micro 1 has the smallest footprint of all Jura superautomatics, and is specifically tailored to single cup coffee drinkers demanding the ultimate in freshness. This machine does not have built-in milk frothing functionality.
Tips and Tricks
The ENA Micro 1 can make 5 (six ounce) cups of coffee in five minutes from start to finish. Then you need to refill the 37 ounce water reservoir.
Best Answer:You will definitely have better results using a less oily bean with any superautomatic machine, as the oils on the beans can collect on the interior of the grinder and harden over time. Medium roasts or anything without a shiny surface is best!
Best Answer:From what I could find, there is not a maximum amount of oz you can set the pre-programmed cup size to. The machine requires you to hit the espresso button again when you have reached your desired amount. There is no indication that it will shut off after a certain amount.
How much water is used by default for a ristretto, espresso and a coffee? I know how to change the amount of water but would like to know how much water is used by the machine before I changed everything.
In the video, you mention that the brewer cannot be removed for cleaning. Will this be a problem for long-term maintenance? I'm concerned that grind and oil build-up internally without any means of cleaning will shorten the lifespan and cause problems sooner than for comparable machines with internal cleaning options. Can the insides be cleaned somehow? Or is this just not something to be concerned about? We currently have a Saeco Royal Professional and grind build-up is certainly an issue.
Best Answer:This unit addresses cleaning a few different ways. First every time you turn it on and off it performs a short cycle the flushes the system. Also it will indicate when the dregs container and catch tray need to be emptied and cleaned; these are simple to remove and clean.
It tracks usage (or perhaps cycles) then displays the cleaning icon. When it is in this state you follow the cleaning procedure; which involves a machine directed cleaning cycle in which you drop a cleaning tablet in the dosing shoot, fill the water reservoir and empty the dregs container as directed. Some tablets are provided with the system and can be purchased.
I've had an Ena Micro one for 3 years, use it daily. I use the water filter (recommended) and follow the cleaning procedure above. It's been great. I did have an issue the first year but it was taken care of by the manufacturer. The best service experience I have ever had (they paid shipping both ways, were quick and helpful; all at no cost).
Jacob:I bought my Jura ENA Micro about a year ago. I use the Clearyl Blue filter cartridge located in water reservoir and the Jura cleaning tablets. The machine has prompts which tell you when you need to perform both maintenance tasks. I also use tap water that has been filtered thru a ZeroWater filter to minimize mineral scaling. I've never had a fancy machine before I bought this one so I don't know if there is some kind of build up inside which might shorten its lifespan. Once every two weeks or so, I wipe out the inside of the machine where the used grinds and water collect and that's all the cleaning I do. So far, I have had no problems or change in quality of the expresso with the current routine.
I had a jura compressa for 13 years. I replaced the filter and cleaned it religiously with the tablet whenever the the machine indicated. I never had a problem with it. I also tried to use beans that were not too oily. The grinder never got clogged. It was the best machine I ever had until it started to leak after 13 years. Now I purchased the jura mini and I LOVE it. It makes the best coffee. I love the face that it doesn't have the milk steamer. I use the nespresso milk frothed. Very easy cleanup.
I'm our small office, using light to medium roast coffee, this has not been an issue provided you let the machine go through cleaning cycles (with cleaning tablets) as the manual suggests. It is fairly simple and we have had no issues over the past couple of years...
We haven't found that it is an issue for the longevity of the machine. Although you cannot remove the brew unit on any Juras, Jura has a cleaning tablet that will need to be used with the machine whenever it asks for it. This cleaning tablet helps to clean the oils and buildup from the brew unit.
As watching the video, I got to wonder what you mean by "Ena 1 is for coffee, not espresso." Is it because the espresso making time is too short for this machine/and grams of beans it takes so that it does not make it right? If I am an espresso lover, should I just stick to semi-automatics?
Best Answer:The Jura Ena 1 is more of a coffee center than an espresso machine because it lacks steaming functionality so you can't make lattes and cappuccinos. The dosage is lower in the Jura Micro line than Jura's other machines, as the Micro offers just a 10 gram brewing chamber while their other machines offer 16 gram chambers. You can still brew espresso shots with it, just not make milk based drinks. Semi automatic machines are more work than super automatics, but you can tweak more things with a semi auto, so you do have the potential for better shots with time and practice. Hope this clarifies!
Will this machine make 20 - 30 cups of coffee per day?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2016
Best Answer:Not a wise choice for 20-30 cups per day. You would refill water reservoir about 7 times and the the bean supply about 4 times. You would have to empty the pucks and drip tray 5 times each day. The micro does ok with ~10 cups a day.
Best Answer:Thank you all for your feedback!! I do mean a facility to count the number of cups made, as we can find on other Jura models. I am looking for a slim/compact machine that we can supply to Hotel rooms, where they will charge the guest by the coffee cup made.
Jura Micro1 sounds perfect. It is well desidged and slim. Is there any accessory that we would be able to attach to it and have a way to count each cup made? Any suggestion of an alternative machine?
Cup Counter? You mean some facility to count the number of cups made? Or do you mean "a counter/shelf area" to store cups? In either case the answer is "no." The Jura ENA Micro 1 is a great compact system. I use mine nearly every day and have been very pleased. I'm not sure you would find such a feature on systems costing 4x as much, perhaps on a large commercial system.
I purchased this machine about 8 weeks ago. As far as I know it does NOT have a cup counter feature. I have been VERY SATISFIED with the machine. It makes consistently good coffee and is very clean and easy to use!
Best Answer:As this machine is dosing for a single shot for each brew cycle, it will dose out approximately 7 grams for the mild strength, and 11 grams for the strong strength. That will vary slightly depending on your bean and the right grind setting for it.
Best Answer:Unfortunately, it would be fairly wasteful. When you have emptied the bean hopper (which, unfortunately, you cannot remove), there will still be some beans and grounds within the burrs of the hopper and through the chute to the brew unit inside. In order to make sure those have been fully cleared through, it's best to brew about 3 cycles (so that it can grind beans into the grinder, pushing out the old grounds/beans. 3-4 cycles is best, so that it can clear out the mixture of the old and new beans, to make sure that you're 100% on the new beans.
As an alternative, I've heard of many couples in your situation having one person that is fine with using pre-ground coffee, so that the whole beans can stay in the grinder, and when the other person wants to brew (decaf for instance), they can put in one scoop of pre-ground espresso down the bypass doser to enjoy their drink. This is the less wasteful option, but it won't be freshly ground, so it won't be quite as nice. It depends on if this is a good trade-off for convenience! :-)
Will this coffee maker perform for a 50 person office?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2015
Best Answer:Unfortunatley, this machine, while hearty, is not designed for that large of an office. It could probably handle up to 10 people in an office, but with more people and higher demand on the machine, you will likely see a very short lifespan. Since it is part of Jura's Micro series, it also has a small footprint, but due to that, has a smaller dump box, bean hopper, and water tank, so you would be filling and emptying (respectively) very frequently, which can be quite frustrating and time consuming.
For a machine that might be able to handle that use, you can look into (at a minimum) the Jura Giga 5 or the XJ9. These will have larger capacities so that you don't have to refill as frequently, bit it would be much more worthwhile to go with a commercial machine that can be plumbed in, and could also provide a drain like the Nuova Simonelli Microbar.
Hi: What do you recommend if I want something like this but also like hot milk in my coffee? Thanks!
A shopper on May 12, 2014
Best Answer:The Jura Micro 1 would still be a good option, you would just need a stand alone frother like the Jura or Capresso options on the site. Search "Frother" for some of the available options we offer. I have included a few popular choices below as well.
I am debating between Jura ENA Micro 1, Saeco Synthia Focus, and Delonghi Magnifica ESAM 3300, which one to get? I love espresso and latte. I don't mind Jura 1 without a frothing wand and am not too worry about programmability. I do want a machine that produces consistent good quality espresso and easy to maintain.
A shopper on Jan 30, 2014
Best Answer:Between those three, the Saeco and DeLonghi machines have removal brew units that can be rinsed off to clean them, while the Jura requires using their cleaning tablets to maintain things. The DeLonghi 3300 will have the strongest shots, but the loudest grinder, since it's an older machine. Saeco and DeLonghi machines offer service centers for potential repairs across the US, and but Jura doesn't authorize others to repair their machines, so their units would need to go to the US center in New Jersey. For another strong option, I might suggest the Jura C5, as the Jura Micro line offers only 10 grams of coffee for each shot, while the C5 will allow for 16 grams. Hope this helps!
Best Answer:1. It's in the manual (page 32) 2. If you download the PDF version, you can do a search 3. Here is the procedure for setting the amount for any of the 3 settings. - Precondition: Your ENA Micro 1 is ready to use - Place a cup under the spout - Touch the symbol (Ristretto, Expresso or Long Coffee) you wish to set for about 3 seconds until the small (Ristretto) and large (long coffee) symbols appear again. - Release the symbol (Ristretto, Expresso or Long Coffee) you selected. - You choice will be prepared, the symbol and the coffee strength will be flashing. - Once the amount of liquid you desire for the selected symbol is achieved, touch the symbol. The flow will stop and this amount will be recorded and assigned to that symbol you selected. - The symbol and the coffee strength will flash until the machine has made itself ready again.
Check your manual… There is a setting to change the volume size of the cup, that is activated by holding down the cup buttons on the machine. If someone who has never used your Jura before holds down a button when trying to make a cup ("This is smaller then my Starbucks. Maybe I should just hold down the button."), it will reset the volume for that cup size. (Often to a much larger cup size.) You can reset the cup volume setting using the instructions in the manual. Good Luck!
Wow! Mine is a year old in June and this just started happening to me a few weeks ago. If you find an answer, I'd love to know! I am dreading sending it back for repair and being without it while it's gone.

User Manuals for your Jura ENA Micro 1 Automatic Coffee Center
Great coffee but high maintenance. Review by Mike734
Pros: Fast first cup
Great flavor and crema
Yes the preprogrammed size is customizable.
Cons: Small water reservoir, made smaller by rinsing starting and shutting down.
Small bean hopper. Also, the edge of the aroma seal top must be kept clean in order to replace the top correctly.
Touch button display is hard to read in the morning sun.
Cleaning every 180 shots seems excessive and takes propritary pellets and 15 minutes. (Posted on 8/29/2015)
Machine makes a VG cup of coffeeReview by Traveller
I like a strong coffee with nice crema on top. I also like to try different beans to taste their different flavor and aroma. This Jura machine fits my needs, and is simple to operate. Nothing fancy, none of that dairy stuff but it performs all the functions I need. Even though it is somewhat costly I am very happy with this purchase from SCG. (Posted on 12/10/2014)
Excellent addition to our kitchen counterReview by Coffee time in Austin
We purchased a refurbished Jura Micro 1 from Seattle Coffee Gear about a month ago, and couldn't be happier. I am not a hardcore coffee purist but do have certain expectations when it comes to my morning cup. The Micro 1 couldn't be easier to use and in less than a minute after turning the unit on, you are drinking a great cup of hot coffee. The options for setting bean grind fineness, amount of grind, and amount of water should allow for a range of different coffee strengths to suit most coffee drinkers. Some have complained of limited water tank and puck tray size, but it takes so little time to refill and empty that it is not an issue for me. I'd go on here, but I think I'll make another cup of espresso... (Posted on 10/4/2014)
A Really Great Single Brew MachineReview by Tom
I bought the Jura from Seattle Coffee Gear July 1st and it really is a great machine. The quality seems first rate, it is simple to use and best of all, it makes a really good cup of coffee!
With the Jura ENA Micro 1 coffee maker, you pay the money upfront. With the other single serve machines you end up paying as much in the long run via each time you buy one of their proprietary pods. The single cup pod machines just don't seem to make a great cup of coffee.
With the Jura ENA 1 you can use and experience your favorite beans. (Posted on 7/12/2014)
Replace every other device you have Review by Ras
This is a great machine. As advertised and consistent with the other reviews. Do wish it would get coffee a tad hotter but it is still very hot - just personal preference - lord knows I'm prob drinking it at the wrong temp. M
Only drawback is that the water container is relatively small. Especially if you increase the cup dispensing amount to fill a standard coffee cup. I leave a small litre of water nearby for quick refills. (Posted on 4/28/2014)
Fantastic MachineReview by Nicholas
I did extensive research before buying this machine and have zero regrets. The quality of the coffee is excellent with a nice layer of crema. It warms up quickly, it is easy to use, it prompts you to replace the filter or perform a cleaning cycle, and takes up very little space. Cleaning the drip tray and used grounds receptacle is a snap. There is absolutely no comparison between this machine and one that uses pods. The Keurig I use at work takes forever to brew a cup of coffee compared to the Jura. As other folks mentioned, this machine is best for a home with 2-3 coffee drinkers. (Posted on 2/24/2014)
So far, so goodReview by Gina
Since I have an excellent milk frother (Froth AuLait), I chose this machine because I didn't need that feature. After I get my milk started, I just press one button and it's done. No more going to Starbucks to stockpile expresso in the refrigerator for the coming week. I am very happy. (Posted on 1/16/2014)
Very Good machineReview by Yos
I was looking into getting a machine that could easily and quickly make a morning latte without too much work. I was close to going for Nespresso, but after doing the math I was turned off of the cost of paying for the pods long term. Going for a semiautomatic machine, I eventually chose the Micro Ena 1 when SCG was having a promotion where you get the milk frother as well.
I've been using the machine for 2 weeks so far and have been very impressed. The quality of the shots, using Lavazza super crema coffee beans, have been great. I truly think the taste of the latte/iced lattes I have made have been better than what you get at Starbucks. Family for whom I have made drinks have agreed.
It is definitely a lot of money to put down up front, but it pays off if you are buying espresso based drinks at local coffee shops. Keep in mind that besides the cost of coffee beans, you will have to also pay for the water filters (~$20/2 months) and cleaning/descaling tablets. That being said, it will still be significantly cheaper than going to Starbucks or paying per pod with Nespresso. Even if I can only get 2 years out of this machine I will be very happy.
Lastly, thank you to SCG for putting out amazing videos on the machines! I am a huge fan of your company (Posted on 10/13/2013)
Small but niceReview by G
I wasn't interested in any milk-based drinks so I opted for this machine. I've had it for several months now and really enjoy it. This really is a "personal" coffee machine. If I'm in the mood for a 3rd longo for the day I'd better be in the mood to refill the water reservoir. Nothing about this machine says "great for the office"....it's just a nice machine for at-home use...maybe for 2. It's quick, simple, and makes great coffee drinks. (Posted on 8/20/2013)
Very niceReview by Simon
As an upgrade to our office Keurig machine, the Jura provides the same level of simplicity and speed, while dramatically improving our coffee.
Overall a very worthwhile addition to the office. (Posted on 2/7/2013)
