Once I hear what you guys/gals think I'll share my candid opinion with you if you want it :) I suspect the vast majority of people on this forum will not have them but may have been by a dealer or at an expo and had the opportunity to taste the end product. If you are in the Chicago area the 2013 Housewares show is going on and I'm pretty sure the Jura folks will be there. I will likely attend there should be a lot of Coffee related stuff going on there... I heard about a coffee printer that syncs with the iPhone to print a 20x20 "pixel" image of foam on the top of your cup. For those of us that are artistically challenged and a sucker for all that is nerd... it's interesting :)
The height of the cappuccino spout for latte macchiato and cappuccino and the coffee spout is continuously adjustable, the creation of perfect specialty drinks both in a small espresso cup and in a latte macchiato glass up to 6 inches tall. The integrated fine foam technology from JURA ensures unique milk foam quality with a fine, feather-light consistency.

I started with the Jura F9 and after 15,000 coffees I sent it in to Jura to have it refurbished. I ended up selling it on eBay and them purchased a Z5. The Z5 was much superior to the F9. I did have some problems in leaking issues. That seems to be a common complaint. I have had it now for 4 years and decided to upgrade again. I looked at the Z7 which is a current model. I also looked at the Z9 with the TFT screen. So after much thought I got the Z9. I am waiting on it as it is coming from back East. I got the 34 oz. cooler and a cup warmer. I may sell both, as I typically just do coffee and espresso and the occasional milk based drink. I realize the Z7 and Z9 are basically the same, just a different look. The units with double coffee grinders look good but might not fit under our counter. Also I just use 100% Kona and have no need for an additional coffee. Jura is really good about fixing units out of warranty. You just send it back (The cover postage both ways) and they will turn it around in about a week. For the Z5 it is $350 and they will repair anything that is not working. I do love the look of their machines.

Well after much consideration, and after reading countless reviews, I purchased a J9 One Touch TFT. I've been using it now for going on 3 months, and so far it has performed perfectly. It makes the best tasting coffee, espresso, Latte's, and Cappuccino's I've had at home. And better than a lot of coffee places I've been to. So far I am super happy with my J9! The one thing that I've learned is to stay consistent with the maintenance, and to keep the frother unit clean. I use the Clearyl Blue water filter, and the company says that I don't need to descale since I'm using it, but I went ahead and did one recently anyway. I just want to keep it performing optimally.
