What Buyers Say About This Machine
Just below you can read what buyers have to say about this particular Jura model. Overall the reviews are very good. As you can see 7 out of every 10 buyers deem this machine worth a full 5 star rating, and the number of bad reviews is relatively low.
We shall of course still want to know why buyers leave a bad review so we have covered that off below in a pros and cons table. We find that a handy method to summarise the good and bad points about this coffee machine.
- Buyers said this made great tasting coffee with a really nice crema
- Buyers also said this machine needed very little maintenance so a big time saver
- Buyers also said the machine looked great and was very well made
- The majority of buyers said the machine was extremely easy to use
- We only found a couple of minor complaints, and those were about the strength of the coffee
- The other complaint was that the milk didn't come out hot enough
To summarise what buyers said, those who left a bad review (around 4%) did so because they were unhappy with the strength of the coffee. That of course could be down to the type of coffee they were using.
The bad reviews that we did find, and there were under a handful at the time of writing this we found to be harsh. They were also too short to actually make sense of them.
Still they complained about coffee strength and tepid milk. There were no real machine problems that we could find. We do however agree with the milk issue as it gets to around 50 degrees Celsius, and that could be a lot better.
The contented and satisfied buyers liked the machine a lot, and said that it made excellent coffee. They also said it was easy to maintain and clean. The drip tray and grounds box are easy to get at, and as such then easy to clean.
The majority of buyers said that using this machine was quite intuitive, and setting it up was very easy. Overall buyers were very satisfied with their purchase

Our Verdict on the JURA 15079 E6 Coffee Machine
Some buyers simply just like this Swiss Jura brand, and generally speaking their machines are high quality and make good coffee with very little fuss.
These are high end machines and they certainly cost a pretty penny. Those who can afford this one though are well pleased with it.
It certainly makes a great tasting espresso, thanks to the grinder, the infusion method and the 15 bar pressure through the coffee grains.

It does however let itself down with the frother and the milk. Many coffee drinkers simply prefer to use a microwave and a battery operated milk frother to get their foam.
That is because the built-in milk frothers on these types of machine are just never that good. A few buyers said that the milk was tepid at around 50 degrees Celsius.
In summary, this is a good brand and this model is well rated by buyers. There are a lot of great features that make owning this coffee machine great fun to use, and making sure you get consistently good coffee.
If you are someone who likes to have frothed milk (foam) with their coffee type of drink, then probably better to do that another way, rather than reply on the foamer on this machine.
It is a bit fiddly to use, and the milk may not get warm enough, for the way that you like your coffee.

A. No that is not required. This is a free standing machine with a water tank that will need to be filled.
Q. Does this machine alert you when the drip tray is full?
