While we can sing the praises of the E6 all day, the fact is that there is a bit of a learning curve with it. The instruction manual can be a little confusing to some people, and setting up your cleaning system can take a while. Also, plan on spending more time with maintenance than you would with other coffee makers. In the end, it ensures that your machine is always ready to go, but it can be a bit of a time investment.
Most modern coffee machines will feature a foam frother and this is also a vital part of a coffee machine like the Jura C65.

To clean it, all you do is insert a tablet in the coffee powder drawer and it does its thing.

Bottom line, if you just pay attention and clean the machine on a regular basis when it tells you to, this is a no-brainer machine.
