Always improving and keeping well ahead of the curve, Jura has created a machine that simultaneously mimics and improves on it’s predecessor. Meet the Jura Impressa C60! The clear successor to the Impressa C5, this machine offers the same necessary functionality to one-touch your way to the drink of your dreams, all while offering a more convenient process.
Features & Functionality of the Jura Impressa C60 Automatic Coffee Center
Automatic Milk Frothing: One-touch lovers rejoice! Many machines at this affordable price only offer a panarello or manual steam wand, but Jura thoughtfully equipped the C60 with their fine foam frother. With a touch of the steam icon and a twist of the steam knob, the C60 produces light and airy frothed milk.
Options: Customize your drink by programming the volume, brew temperature and coffee strength.
Adjustable Coffee Spout: Comfortably fit a small espresso glass or an everyday coffee mug beneath this accommodating spout.
Preserve the Beans!: The bean container features an aroma preservation cover that helps keep beans fresh.
Auto Off: Conserve energy by programing the C60 to automatically shut down after a specified amount of inactivity.
Hot Water: Never be without hot water, as the milk frother pulls double duty also working as a hot water spout.
Bypass Doser: No need to switch from your favorite pre-ground blend just to take full advantage of this nifty machine. Add those pre-ground beans to the bypass doser and revel in the freshly brewed cup it produces.
Easy Peasy - With only two icons and two knobs to coordinate, operating this machine is a breeze.
Wallet Friendly - Experience the convenience of a high-end superautomatic espresso machine for a fraction of the price!
Adjustments on the Fly - Feel like having a stronger than usual espresso, but your normal shot is programmed for mild? Not to worry! The C60 lets you make important last minute changes prior to brewing.
Small Drip Tray - You may feel like you're doing a balancing act when trying to fit a larger cappuccino cup under the milk frothing spout.
How Does it Compare?
Don't be fooled by the uncanny resemblance! While the C60 looks and acts a lot like its C5 predecessor, there are some key differences:
Some like it hot...or not! With the C60 you can choose from "high" or "normal" brew temperature.
No need to spend time mastering milk frothing! Let the C60 and Jura's Fine Foam Frother automatically handle milk duty with a touch of a button and twist of a knob.
The C5's maintenance indicators have been replaced with an easy to read plain text display.
Tips and Tricks
When switching from brewing to steaming, be sure to firmly press the steam icon for a few seconds. You may find a quick push will not do the trick.
Best Answer:Jodi, I will assume you know that you can adjust the size of a cup of coffee on the C60. My wife likes 5.5 to 6 ounces for hers and she does ad milk usually cold. I always do the expresso which is a much smaller portion 1-2 ounces per shot. Hope that helps.
We like our coffee strong so we have the volume programmed for 4 ounces and strength programmed for strong and we use dark roast coffee (but no oily beans). Those settings are easily changed to accommodate individual preferences.
Best Answer:I've had mine since 12-2014. Still going strong and love the coffee! I have a friend who has a similar model and has had it close to 10 years. You do need cleaning tablets and water filter about every 3 months (depending on how much coffee you make each day - my husband and I go through about 50oz a day.)
I currently have a Saeco Xsmall. The quality of coffee it produces is ok, but the quality of steamed milk is another story entirely...and not a good one.
How does the steamed milk produced by the C60 compare to steamed milk produced by a "real" wand? Is it more similar to "real" steamed milk or the super foamy, meringue-type milk produced by the Saeco panarello?
Best Answer:Whenever you have a machine that automatically steams and froths into your cup for you, you will get a thicker froth that is very similar to a wet cappuccino, very much like a panarello. However, you don't have any control over the milk temperature, so what the machine produces is the hottest that can be made. For many people, this is on the cool side around 120 degrees. There will always be some air incorporated, so you won't be able to get just steamed milk without any froth.
Best Answer:You can and should use Jura's milk frother cleaner to soak and rinse the components, from the portion where the milk is steamed and frothed, to the plastic tubing and attachment to your milk container. For more stubborn buildup, we generally recommend using a pipe cleaner as well to thread through and clean out the components.
How does this model compare with Jura Impressa C60 and if the pro's were choosing between the two, which would they pick? Additionally, is there a super automatic under $1500.00 that is a must buy? Thanks
Best Answer:Both will make very similar coffee and have similar features. Probably a slight advantage to the Deluxe as it is a newer design, removable brew group and a choice between manual and automatic milk steaming.
Best Answer:Sorry, the only way that we've found to froth with this machine is to use the cappuccinatore that comes with this machine, inserting the tube into your milk, then dispensing it into your cup. An older panarello from some of their previous, discontinued models will have a different fit that what will work on this machine.
As an alternative, you could certainly use a stand-alone frother, but it will produce a different kind of foam as steam is not being incorporated to stretch the milk. Frothers like that will essentially just heat and whip the milk.
It's really all a personal preference, so experiment to find your best results!
How many ounces of beans does the C60 use per 2oz shot of espresso (including waste)? And how many for a double shot (assuming it is not 2x the single shot)? I am wondering so that I can budget how many cups I can get out of a bag of beans (and compare it to the cost of pods from my current Nespresso machine). Thanks!
Best Answer:That's hard to say because it will depend on what you've got your strength set to. For a single drink, it will use approx. 7-10 grams of coffee, and when you're using the double option for your drink, it will grind up to 14 grams of coffee. This is also dependent on your coffee and finding which grind setting is right for the machine and bean combination, as the machine will grind for a length of time, so a coarser setting will of course dose out just a little more than a finer setting. Hopefully that helps with your estimation!
Also, just as a guideline, when you're measuring out shots, typically a single shot is 1oz. If you choose to pull more water through the grounds (which is entirely up to your personal preference) 2oz. through the grounds for a single shot would be considered a lungo, as it will water down the strength of the shot slightly. Experimentation is the name of the game though, to find exactly what suits you best!
Jura Impressa C5 Super Automatic Coffee Center - Certified Refurbished
Best Answer:The C5 has been discontinued by Jura, but it had a panarello so that you could steam and froth your milk on your own. It also has a slightly different display on the left side, where it indicates a 1 cup and 2 cup option to select. The C60 by comparison, will automatically steam and froth into your cup automatically when steam is selected, using a hose connection to any container you like with milk in it. The display is also slightly different display, with a readout on the top to select the programmable drink options of "Espresso" and "Coffee."
How much clearance does the C60 need? If I need to fit it under a cabinet about 17 inches above the counter, will I have sufficient access to the water tank and beans? Thanks!
A shopper on Jan 25, 2015
Best Answer:The overall height of the Jura C60 is 13.375", and with the bean hopper lid or the water tank lid open, you'd be looking at a total height of 15.75". This should fit under your cabinet, just keep in mind you won't have much room for pouring in your beans, and removing the water tank may be fairly difficult.
Best Answer:I'm sorry, but we don't carry any Jura parts. My best suggestion would be to contact Jura directly, as I know sometimes those hoses can get really dirty, or could get lost. Jura's phone number is 800-767-3554.
Best Answer:No, in order to froth, the machine will siphon milk up and through the tube from any container of your choosing, then mix that milk with steam and air to dispense it into your cup for you. The temperature that it is able to produce is also a bit on the cool side for some people, around 115 to 120 degrees. You are unable to manually froth the milk.
with a reverse osmosis filter system does one need the jura filter?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2014
Best Answer:No, you would not need to use a filter, but keep in mind that if you don't use a filter, then the machine will prompt you to descale instead. We don't recommend using 100% RO water anyway, as water just wants to have minerals in it, and as the water sits in the boiler, it will slowly draw minerals from the boiler, degrading the boiler over time (years down the road), so we recommend using at least some water with minerals mixed in so that it's soft but has a little bit of minerals. With Jura, you will need to choose if you want to use the filters or descale, but you don't have to do both.
I think its brushed over in the video review but I'm not sure I understand. Does this unit, Jura C60, have the capability of making a cup of coffee? Just a plain cup of coffee, I can worry about the coffee drinks and espresso later.
Best Answer:The Jura C60 and other super automatic machines make an americano, which is basically a shot of espresso with more water pulled through the grounds. The Jura Impressa units will draw as much as 16 ounces of liquid through your grounds. Though an americano is not quite the same as a cup of drip coffee, it works great for most "coffee" drinkers. Hope this helps!

love my C60Review by Sam
I have had this machine for about 10 months now and i couldn't be happier. It works exactly the same every time. I have put more than 20 pounds of coffee thru it. Always hot enough. very low maintenance. I never use the steamer, so i really cannot comment on it. My only gripe is that when you press the button twice, you get twice the volume of water, not two complete cycles. I am usually a 2 shot kinda guy, so this would be handy.
I am a long time superautomatica owner and fan. This machine is by far my favorite. (Posted on 11/9/2015)
Too many issuesReview by Tom
This machine requires too many handstands to work properly. Customer service is hit and miss on trouble shooting. The system is not intuitive. (Posted on 5/28/2015)

Smooth, easy to use, adjusts on the flyReview by Christy C.
Love this machine! Great for both espresso and coffee drinks alike. No bitterness at all, strength & volume adjustments on the fly. We use Lavazza Super Crema beans primarily. Super easy to clean after reading the instructions one time. Just follow the on screen prompts. Suggestion: have maintenance supplies readily available at all times (cleaning tabs, filters or descaling tabs). Cleaning notifications come up quicker than we expected (we do pull 8 shots/coffees per day). Wish taller cups fit under the nozzles, the frother pulled out from the machine, and the platform on that side was deeper. Only narrow shorter cups fit, and our cups are all larger (16+ ounces). Minor inconveniences compared to the quality and ease of use of this machine. GREAT espresso & coffee!!! You won't be disappointed.
Oh, and the Paladino coffee Seattle Coffee Company sent with the machine is FANTASTIC in this machine. That is the best combo, but Paladino is more expensive and only comes in smaller bags. We refill the bean hopper about every other day and those small bags last for just over 2 refills. We use it occasionally as a treat or for a special occasion. So tasty!! (Posted on 3/14/2015)
really like itReview by bll
I like this machine a lot. It's very easy to use and, at least so far, easy to maintain. It would be nice to be able to preset a few more drink options, but the machines that allow that are dramatically more expensive, so I can get by with the two options here.
The one downside is that it does not get the milk very hot which my wife finds a bit frustrating. (Posted on 2/21/2015)
