A new gadget that promises hot and cold brew specialty coffees at the touch of a button has been dubbed the ‘best coffee machine in the world’ by thousands of shoppers and caffeine lovers.
The groundbreaking JURA Z10 may be the world’s first bean to cup coffee maker that also includes a cold extraction process, but such bespoke service don’t come without a cost.

Firstly, it’s the engineering.
The Swiss-designed product can make up to 32 specialty coffees, from a flat white and intense espresso to cold-brew coffees, cappuccinos and mochas.
Thanks to its Product Recognising Grinder – which has been built to automatically adjust in a fraction of a second – the best consistency of a grind for your drink is always ensured.
The engineers have also installed a brewing system that cleverly allows water to flow evenly over the ground coffee on multiple levels for a more impressive espresso.
On top of this, the machine is touch screen and wi-fi enabled, should you want to order a coffee from the comfort of your armchair with a smartphone.
The quality of the resulting brew is almost identical to what you would be served in a café – and certainly the best coffee you can make for yourself at home.

The second thing that sets the Jura Z10 apart from some other coffee machines on the market is its stylish finish.
While the machine might be slightly on the large side for a small kitchen, its design complete with a curved front, metallic drip tray and LED lights mean it looks professional and smart in any setting.
It also uses artificial intelligence, which means the machine is very intuitive to use.

Those who have tried the JURA Z10 have left glowing reviews online, describing it as ‘wonderful’ and a ‘saviour’ in their lives.
‘A wonderfully designed and made coffee machine,’ one shopper wrote.
‘Fabulous coffees of all kinds from a super automatic. Quite a brilliant achievement. The wi-fi app is less than friendly to set up.’
Another added: ‘An amazingly beautiful machine, featuring a new cold brew function, which seriously makes the perfect coffee every time. Make sure you get the cup warmer as well’.
While a third simply wrote: ‘Coffee bliss’.
The JURA Z10 is available now for an RRP $4,150 online as well as selected electrical retailers, department stores, independent and specialty outlets.

My experience with the JURA Z10
If you’re looking for a coffee machine to rival your daily $4 coffee habit, this might be the one for you.
I had the privilege of road-testing the JURA Z10 during the recent NSW COVID-19 lockdown, and I was not disappointed. Within days, I found myself replacing a daily jaunt down to the local barista for a flat white with a home-brewed coffee made in the Z10.
The machine can also be used to make cocktails, like Baileys-infused espresso martinis (pictured)
Despite the staggering price, the quality of this product is undeniable and the coffee that comes from it is delicious, intense and barista-level in terms of quality. When I got to understand the machine a little better, I was able to make everything I might want – from cold-brew coffees on 30 degree days to espresso martinis for yet another Zoom trivia night.
My major drawbacks with this machine include that it is quite fiddly to clean and requires cleaning often.
Its giant size also means that it can dwarf other appliances in an apartment kitchen, so that’s something to be aware of if you don’t have much benchtop space.
Finally, at $4,150 it’s obviously eye-wateringly expensive, and not everyone will be pleased to know that you have to buy a separate milk chiller if you want to take full advantage of that coffee function.
You might also – as I did – find yourself missing buying a coffee from your local café. Money saving or no, there is something nice about the daily ritual of seeing your coffee be prepared and taking 10 minutes out from your day to enjoy a change of scenery.
That being said, the JURA Z10 is without a doubt the best coffee machine I have ever tried – and a seriously accomplished bit of kit.
