Jura Z10 Espresso Machine Review: Key Features
The New Product Recognizing Grinder (P.R.G.)
JURA engineers have engineered this Z10 model with a “Product Recognizing Grinder” (PRG). It ensures the best possible grist for each different drink specialty. Controlled electronically, the precision grinder adopts itself individually to the pre-programmed degree of bean grinding within fractions of a second. More frequently and much faster than doing it manually.
Its spectrum varies from very fine, for short classic drinks to very coarse for long specialty drinks. But coffee connoisseurs don’t even have to fret about that as the adjustment happens fully automatically with each separate preparation. Additionally, if desired, can be picked individually too before each brewing thanks to its aroma selection. The grinder is also pulse extraction process (P.E.P.) enabled.
Jura Z10 Hot And Cold Coffee Specialties
So, when it comes to producing energizing cold brew coffees the Z10 shows its capabilities thanks to its cold extraction system. This extraction of Z10 makes real refreshing cold brew coffee specialties possible anytime! While many standard cold espressos or cold drinks from espresso machines mostly consist of hotly brewed, cooled coffee; the cold brew program of the Z10 is performed with cold water.
This cold extraction process technology with its efficient coffee brewing units slowly pulses cold water, under high pressure, and freshly ground coffee. The outcome in the cup is an energizing, natural soft drink with the fruity aromas of the coffee without being overwhelmed by any bitter undertones. Worthy of turning the heads of any modern coffee lovers.
Jura has come up with some innovative recipe ideas for cold brew coffee. Like – As Cold Brew Tonic, Cold Brew Red Cool along with Cold Brew Espresso, and Cold Brew Caffè latte.
Intelligent Water System (I.W.S.)– CLARIS Smart Filter Cartridge
Part 1 – The Intelligent Water Filter
Since coffee is 98 percent water, its prime quality is dependent on the water quality too. With the CLARIS Smart, JURA is revolutionizing the water filtration factor. For the 1st time, a fully automatic machine with the ability to communicate with its water filter with the help of modern RFID technology. It identifies whether a filter is installed and automatically gets activated with the corresponding mode. It constantly gathers information on filter usage. Then reports when the capacity is exhausted. Thus changing the filter is easier than ever.
Part 2 – Suitable For All Tap Water
CLARIS Smart works to maintain professional up-flow principles. It always filters the exact required amount of water that is needed. The filter cartridges are suited for any tap water worldwide. The adapted granulate filters perform to an always optimal amount, even with low water hardness. Reduces all possible pollutants more effectively than ever before. Fluorides and minerals that act as important flavor carriers remain fully preserved. Thanks to the efficient filtering of harmful substances and optimal lime stabilization, the aftermath is always optimal quality water for a perfect coffee aroma.
Part 3 – Automatic Filter Detection
JURA uses modern RFID technology to perform dialogue between the filter and the automatic machine itself. The IWS automatically identifies when a filter is installed. Then it automatically switches to filter operation and begins the flush. If the filter performance comes to an end, the machine indicates that the filter is needed to be changed. Otherwise, the device self-activates the descaling mode. After the appropriate usage, the request for decalcification appears. Because one must remove the filter 1st to perform decalcification. No room for misunderstandings or incorrect manipulations.
Brewing Unit Generation 8
The brewing unit is the heart and soul of all fully automatic machines. JURA has designed its eighth-generation brewing units for this Z10 model which makes this crucial part of controlling the brewing temperature levels an easy task for any novice coffee drinker.
The brewing unit works as a 3D brewing technology. The Jura espresso machine’s gen-8 brewing guarantees the flow of water that goes through the ground coffee evenly over several layers to produce rich espresso shots. The hot water function and hot water temperature levels are controlled with precision. Brings out the maximum exhaustion of the aroma from this coffee processing; both for hot specialties and cold brews.
The design and the build choices of the right elements actively contribute to the sustainability of this product. JURA longs for a design that would awaken the owners’ pride as well as would look modern and fresh after many years. Uncompromising mechanical build, durable materials, high quality, and the highest level of accuracy in processing guarantee both aesthetic and culinary enjoyment over the entire lifespan of this machine.
The sophisticated aluminum convex-concave front bears testify to the art of craftsmanship. The elegant wave design of the water tank and the harmoniously designed filter casing are just 2 examples of the attention to detail behind this machine. And if you touch Z10, you will literally feel what JURA means by value.
Jura Z10: Key Accessories
Since Jura Z10 is a high-end, highly technical, and impressively super-automatic espresso machine it requires some crucial day-to-day accessories for keeping it in its prime form. So we’ve included them in this Jura Z10 review.
Milk Hose With Stainless Steel Casing
The milk hose is coated by a high-quality spiral spring (made of stainless steel). It connects the milk container and the milk spout. This completes the all-around elegant design of this fully automatic machine. The opaque fine material coating guarantees optimum protection against the effects of light and UV rays.
The precise fitting of the plug connections ensures airtight flow. Always ready for use, the milk hose serves as the perfect solution for optimal milk hygiene. The milk hose can be cut to any size, but the pre-assembled length of 23 cm is highly recommended. You can easily remove the milk hose with stainless steel coating to the fully automatic coffee machine also.
Accessory Set For Milk Systems
Jura Z10 prepares specialty coffees with milk and is equipped with a set of milk systems accessories. With normal usage, every 3 months this should be changed. Each set comes with connection parts, milk hoses, and exchangeable milk outlets. Depending on the milk system from HP1 to Hp3, a different accessory set must be applied. You can check out whether this accessory set suits your machine with the Compatibility tab.
Cup Warmer S
The barista advises to always preheat porcelain cups. Because, if the freshly made coffee is poured into a cold cup, it immediately decreases about 10 degrees of heat from the coffee drink. The aroma can only fully mature inside the cup at the right temperature. With the pragmatic, small cup warmer, JURA offers the prime addition to this fully automatic machine. The cup warmer S keeps the interior of the cups at a stable temperature of 55 ° C. A lid halts the heat loss and saves energy.
Interchangeable Milk Spout
Jura Z10 This set has 10 interchangeable milk spouts. For hygienic reasons, we advise changing these replaceable milk spouts regularly every 2-3 months. These interchangeable spouts ensure quality milk foam on every cup. The Z10 makes creamy and feather-light milk froth with perfect consistency.
The most crucial requirement for the frothing is the milk foam temperature of 4–8 °C. Avoid touching the spouts during operation. Ensure that the dual spouts are correctly installed and always clean.

Comparison: Jura Z10 VS. Z8
Verdict on Jura Z8
To be honest, we think there’s very little point trying to compare the super-automatic Jura Z8 espresso machine to any other coffee maker of the same price or near similar caliber. This is a highly-priced Rolls Royce of a machine that sits in a class of its own. It will really surprise you in the best possible way.
The Jura simply has an insane number of settings. The swankiness and user-friendliness of this machine are off the chart. The taste of its coffee is also better compared to other fully automatic espresso machines of a similar price range.
The Jura Z8 is undoubtedly best for commercial use. It’s also recommended for those who can’t prepare their coffee by themselves. The wireless connectivity makes the monitoring and cleaning of the machine a lot more convenient.
If you’re always struggling to get the prime barista-quality tasting coffee, Z8 is for you indeed. It brings the most saturated aroma and flavor to your coffee. It’s a good choice for office use, provided if you can afford it. A semi-automatic machine would do better in this case.
Jura Z8 is aimed at a different target group – The quality lovers who don’t care about the price.
Verdict on Jura Z10
Jura Z10’s cold brew function is somehow underlined as one of its crowning features and is heavily advertised. It’s just a manifestation of Jura’s marketing crush on their super-automatic machines.
Compared to other machines in the Z series, the Z10 is definitely a gear-up.
But, if you already have a Jura Z6 or even the E8 coffee machine, then you can say pass to Z10.
Currently, Jura focuses a lot on excellent extraction. So, Z10 manages excellent aromatic Cortado or Lungo. On top of that, the Z10 allows you to play with many new coffee specialties.
The overall technology, and its adjustment range, are all top-notch. The Jura Z10 is a luxury sled that can get everything out of the coffee beans.
No matter if you choose, the Diamond Black or the Aluminum White, each indeed comes with full indulgence. And with the technologies like PEP, IWS, and IPBAS Jura makes sure that it’s completely worth it to spend more than two bucks on this kitchen appliance. Also, you should have fully understood the concepts for maximum pleasure while using them daily.
From the Z series, our Jura Z10 reviews show it definitely made a leap forward. Let’s just wait and see how well it works on the market and in the hands of the customers.
Currently, no other brand focuses as much on excellent coffee extraction as Jura. No other machine manages aromatic Lungo or Cortado extraction in a Z series model from Jura. Also, the Jura Z10 comes with a full battery of new coffee specialties that you can experiment with and enjoy. For such reasons alone, it passes with superior marks from each of the quality index measurements.
