Like this one: if you are one of the many who consider a stop at Starbucks or the equivalent part of your daily routine for a fancy coffee-based drink with steamed or frothed milk, skipping that ritual will let you pay off the Jura in just two years. And then, like a car, you still own it. And while I have fallen in love with Jura’s flagship model, you can get into an entry level version with the same Swiss-made precision for as little as $1000 - or less than year of forgoing Starbucks. Six months for a couple. 

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.
