Stiftung warentest: fully automatic coffee machines for great espresso (12/2019)
The best espresso in town at your home? At least the best full auto you can have and at an acceptable price, as the test results show:
- The test winner at stiftung warentest comes from expresso expert jura: its jura ENA 8 is the top product in the 12/2019 test at stiftung warentest with a grade of 1.9. It is on a par with the jura ENA 8 platinum from the same price segment (test 12/2016) and the significantly more expensive jura J6 (test 12/2017).
- You get a delicious espresso with the jura ENA 8 – especially fast and with creamy foam. At the touch of a button it can also prepare cappucchino, latte macchiato and flat white. By the way, the expensive jura J6 from the 2017 test was no better in terms of taste, as the test results show. The water tank of the ENA 8 is chic, the display is also quite good, and the milk hose is easy to replace.
- The brew group of the jura ENA 8 is permanently installed and cannot be removed for cleaning. In return, however, the cleaning program works reliably, according to stiftung warentest. This also applies to the E8 platinum model.
- However, the first cup of espresso in the 2018 models is apparently not hot enough. The temperature is acceptable for the 2019 models. When buying, customers should therefore go for the new model. but don’t worry: if you have a 2018 version, you can get a free replacement at your local jura dealer.
- The jura ENA 8 machines are available in various colors from approx. 900 euro available (white, black, red).

Around 900 euros for a fully automatic coffee maker? This can also be done more cheaply:
- the melitta caffeo varianza CSP also scored 1.9 (test 12/2016), but costs only approx. 520 euro. It does take a lot longer to heat up than the jura ENA 8, but then it also brews a very tasty espresso with a good crema.
- The melitta caffeo varianza CSP is easy to use and makes a very good milk foam. special feature: the fully automatic machine has two separate compartments for beans, so that different types of beans can be used. However, the water reservoir is difficult to insert, complains stiftung warentest, and the coffee compartment holds only 140 grams of beans.
