Setting Up the Machine

When setting up your JURA, please note the following:

  • Place the machine on a horizontal surface that is not sensitive to water.
  • Choose a spot for your JURA which protects the machine against overheating.
  • Ensure that the ventilation slots are not covered.

Filling the Bean Container

  • Coffee beans which have been treated with additives (e.g. sugar), ground coffee or freeze-dried coffee will damage the grinder.
  • Only use untreated roasted coffee beans to refill the bean container.
  • Remove the aroma preservation cover of the bean container.
  • Remove any dirt or foreign objects from inside the bean container.
  • Fill the bean container with coffee beans.
  • Close the bean container.

First-Time Use

When using the machine for the first time, you can choose whether you want to operate JURA with or without the CLEARYL Blue filter cartridge. If the water hardness is 10 °dH or more, we recommend using the filter cartridge. If you do not know the hardness of your water, you can find this out first (see Chapter 1 ‘Preparing and using for the first time – Determining the water hardness’ in the PDF manual).
