How Things Work

  • Dual Frother
    This device is easy use and performs very well. There are two parts of the frother. There is a Frothing Sleeve for cappuccinos and when the Frothing Sleeve is removed, it reveals the Steam Tube for lattes.
    • Frothing: Frothing Sleeve is in place over the steam tube. Hot steam and air are injected into the milk. The air will swirl inside the milk creating silky dense froth on top of the milk, ideal for a cappuccino.
    • Steaming only; Frothing Sleeve is removed to reveal the Steam Tube. Only hot steam will be injected into the milk. This is ideal for a latte.
  • Note* Important:To work properly, the Frothing Sleeve and Steam Tube need to be free of any milk deposits from earlier use.

What Is Espresso?

The majority of coffee experts considers brewing coffee fast and under high pressure the ideal process to extract maximum flavor and aroma from your coffee. The high pressure and the short brewing time prevent the extraction of bitter oils and release less caffeine than other brewing methods.

When you use this technique and brew one to two ounces of coffee it is considered an espresso. When the grinding, the tamping and the pressure brewing all come together in the right combination your espresso will always feature a foamy layer on top, called "crema". The crema traps the fine aromatics and the light gaseous flavors that register on the palate. It keeps the flavors, which would other wise escape, locked in. The crema is the hallmark of a well prepared espresso.

Pump Pressure

Pressure is the result of the packed (tamped) coffee giving the water resistance to pass through. The pump forces the water through that resistance and the power it needs to do so is commonly measured in bar (= kg per square centimeter). Good pumps should be able create more pressure (power) than they need to produce perfect espresso so that they don’t break when the right combination (fineness and consistency of grind, tamping, amount of ground coffee) are not prevalent. A good pump has a capacity of creating 15 or more bars.

To produce a lasting crema on top of your espresso the water should pass through the coffee at approximately 7 to 9 bar of pressure. If the pressure is lower, the crema will disappear before you can enjoy your coffee and the coffee will taste thin and watery. This is mostly the case when there is too little coffee in the filter holder or brewing chamber or if the coffee is too coarsely ground. If the pressure is higher than 9 bars, the coffee will taste bitter and the espresso will have no crema on top. This is mostly the case when the small metal sieves are dirty or clogged or when the coffee is ground too fine. As a result coffee extraction is too long, resulting in a bitter taste.

      It took a few times for me to get the coffee pressed right, but once I did, the espresso is the best I have had at home.

      Comments about Jura-Capresso 115 Capresso Cafe Espresso & Cappuccino Machine:

      Pods don't work, make sure to use ground coffee that is for espresso machines and don't tamp it too much. Steam/frothing wand is inconsistent has steam for <5 seconds than just shoots out hot water. It's also too short to fit in the steamer container I bought. Don't put the port a filter in the dishwasher. We did and all the chrome finish washed off. I called Jura customer service and they were very helpful and sent a replacement at no charge I just wish the instruction booklet would have warned against that beforehand. Were learning all the ins and outs of the perfect brew but it'll be good for us in the morning.

        Comments about Jura-Capresso 115 Capresso Cafe Espresso & Cappuccino Machine:

        After returning a cheaper machine to the local "Mart", the last thing I wanted was a bunch of "head-aches" associated with making a cappucino. After reading the instructions, I was on my way to my first cup.I use whole milk and it frothed up nicely with this machine. The frothing tube is easy to clean.Making the espresso coffee was easy. After grinding my beans and using the tapper to lightly-pack the grounds I was up and running. I ended up buying a set of espresso cups from a local store or else I had to take the over-flow tray out of the bottom to get a regular sized coffee cup under the dispenser. I recommend getting espresso cups so you measure out the right amount every time as you have to stop the machine on your own, or it will turn your espresso into regular coffee.As I sit and drink another fine cup made from this machine, I don't know when I'll use up the rest of that gift card from Starbucks that I got for Christmas. The capuccino's I've made easily compete. At almost $4 a cup for a capuccino, this machine pays for itself in about 40 capuccinos:-)

          Makes very good espresso. I pre-heat my cup with hot tap water before placing the cup on the provided cup warmer. That doesn't seem to get really hot enough to warm the cup. Everything else works beautifully as described in the many reviews I read. The milk steamer is easy to reach and clean. I think the price is very reasonable to get excellent espresso, cappuccino, latte, or coffee in minutes.

            Comments about Jura-Capresso 115 Capresso Cafe Espresso & Cappuccino Machine:

            This is the first latte/cappuccino/espresso machine I have ever purchased. I read many reviews prior to purchasing and people had only good things to say about this machine. I agree completely.

            The footprint of the machine is small, the taste is great, the cleanup is easy. I would recommend this to anyone.

            The only thing is that in our impatient world, I would like to be able to steam the milk for lattes in less than 45 seconds. I know...it's a lot to ask for, but that's just me rushing around in the morning. Unless Capresso can figure out a way to change the lays of physics and have the milk heat instantaneously, then I'm very very satisfied and would recommend this to anyone.
