If the Jura Capresso J9 and the Jura Capresso Z7 had a baby, this is what it would grow up and look like.  It is without a doubt perfection incarnate. The Jura Capresso GIGA 5 is now the standard in which all else is weighed, measured and found wanting.  Like all titans, things that destroy their competition… it does not come cheap.  Why would it though?  This is a complex machine, and not for the light of heart.  This is a machine that screams affluence, taste… It is for the coffee prosumers, people that spend time to find the perfect coffee bean, make sure it is roasted fresh, or roast their own.

Let’s go over some of the features shall we?  To begin with it has two incredibly quiet ceramic disc grinders underneath two separate bean hoppers.  Finally you can have a hopper for a robust early morning blitz of caffeinated wonderment, and in the other bean hopper a decaf, or something a little less buzzy in the evening.
