Jura is launching its GIGA 6, a coffee center described by the company as a “luxury model” that is equipped with Bluetooth technology that allows the unit to connect to the company’s app.
Equipped with two electronically adjustable ceramic disc grinders, two pumps and two thermoblocks, the GIGA 6 is designed to prepare two specialty coffees simultaneously at the touch of a button. The Automatic Grinder Adjustment (A.G.A.) is said to self-regulate and allow for precision grinding of coffee beans. This also allows consumers to use two types of beans individually or mixed together in increments of 25%.
The unit also offers 28 different one-touch specialties that include popular beverages such as caffè latte, flat white or cortado, a new one-touch selection. Coffee and hot milk/milk foam can be dispensed at once to create one or two trend specialties. Milk and milk foam can be tailored to individual tastes and programmed to 10 temperature levels.
The GIGA 6 is also equipped with Jura’s Smart Connect device with Bluetooth communication, allowing it to be used with J.O.E. (Jura Operating Experience), an exclusive free app. With J.O.E., the user can easily operate the machine from a smartphone or tablet— to personalize favorite beverages, initiate brewing, view maintenance instructions and videos and order filters.
Other features include a 4.3-inch color touchscreen display with Blue Crystal Rotary Switch. The GIGA 6 uses artificial intelligence via a self-learning algorithm that identifies personal preferences and adapts the start screen accordingly, showing preferred specialties, company officials said.
The dishwasher-safe drip tray has been redesigned to allow it to be emptied and reinserted with just one hand.
Available in May, the GIGA 6 carries an actual retail price of $5,999.
