My son bought this for me when I started babysitting daily for his twin boys because he said I needed a decent cup of coffee. Both of my children own a Jura. I NEVER would have initially paid the price for a "coffee maker" however this is so much more than just a coffee maker. My husband and I can barely drink coffee out anymore because we are so enthralled with the taste of freshly ground and brewed coffee with the Jura. I have had this for just over two years and am seriously thinking of trading this model in and purchasing a more expensive Jura that will brew two cups at a time.
The only drawback to this model is that the water receptacle holds only about 4 cups of water. Not a big deal with just two people but if you are a huge coffee drinker or have a larger family, then you might want to consider the larger model. Believe me, if you make the switch to a Jura you will never want another type of coffee. Goodbye Starbucks! We NEVER go out for coffee anymore!
