The new ENA 8 has all the coffee luxury you expect from JURA in a compact design. This one-cup automatic coffee machine is outfitted with JURA technology that allows it to prepare 10 specialty coffees including espresso doppio and ever-favorite flat white with only one touch. The built-in Aroma G3 grinder’s Pulse Extraction Process optimizes the freshly-ground — not capsuled — bean’s aroma for better coffee. The ENA 8’s fine foam technology creates airy, feather-light milk foam automatically — no fuss. It also has a beautifully designed water tank that reminds us of a crystal carafe and is available in Metropolitan Black, Nordic White and Sunset Red, so you won’t mind the ENA 8 taking up a little counter space.
