Jura have taken one of their most popular models, the Giga X8, and found ways to make it even better. It’s not just the exterior that got a fresh look – the inner workings have received an upgrade as well with new technologies that make the Giga X8 more durable, reliable and capable of brewing an even better tasting cup of coffee. Here’s what’s new.
Automatic Grinder Adjustment
The new Jura Giga X8 G2 introduces the latest innovation in coffee grinding that Jura has developed to date: Automatic Grinder Adjustment (A.G.A.©), an electronically controlled automatic readjustment system which, together with the next new feature, take grind consistency to a new level.
Ceramic Disc Grinders
The Jura Giga X8 G2 bean-to-cup coffee machine is equipped with two high-performance ceramic disc grinders meant to assure a precise grind with each drink that stays consistent in time. This consistency minimises the chances of getting an ‘off drink’ due to hiccups in the grinding system.
High Resolution Display
Another addition to the 2nd generation model is the 4.3” high resolution touch display which enhances the sleek, professional appearance of the machine and makes it easier to choose and customise drinks, as well as check the machine’s status.
Improved Drink Speed
The Jura Giga X8 G2 coffee machine is quicker and more efficient at producing drinks than its predecessor, thanks to the hot water bypass system that reduces the time it takes to brew a drink. Additionally, the Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.®) optimises the extraction time for short drinks, producing an espresso in record time.
