Looks and Feel
The Jura Capresso Impressa S9 comes in quite a large frame, measuring 14 x 13.7 x 15.8 inches in overall dimensions and feels a bit boxy shape-wise. The bronze-platinum color of the body of the machine, though made in plastic, blends well with the chrome-silver finish of the center that gives it a subtle fusion of modern and classic style that definitely scores A+ in our books.

A single press and you’re good to go, coffee will be ground, the milk will be heated and frothed and will be combined with coffee in a single cup – all without lifting another finger.

The overall quality of the shots is excellent, including the frothed milk. Albeit a minor issue, the plastic material used on the body could use some changes, at this price point, most would be expecting something more refined. All in all a great buy, as the Impressa S9 is definitely an “Impressa”.
