JURA: Longevity is the Key to Sustainability

Discover Did You Know

“JURA products simply last longer.”

For decades, customers have been proclaiming this statement time and time again, and it truly reflects the very nature of sustainability. Making smart use of precious resources is a mindset and an important aspect of ours, and our partner brand values.

JURA machines are installed with a range of sustainable benefits including:

  • Ecological – no unnecessary packaging waste and made from highest quality materials.
  • Durable – JURA machines are designed to give you many years of coffee pleasure provided they are maintained properly.
  • Energy saving modes – save power and money for the individual without forcing them to give up genuine coffee specialties in their own home. JURA machines offer an energy saving potential of up to 40% and is still ready instantly, at the touch of a button.
  • Efficient switch off – JURA Machines are equipped with an energy switch, which completely disconnects your machine from its power supply whilst the machine is on standby.

To make sure the JURA products retain their value for a long time, serviceability is a key requirement in the design of the JURA coffee machines. They proactively design new and improved components to be backwards-compatible. This means we can always supply spare parts and even older models can benefit from product improvements. A part is only approved for production once it has proved itself in stringent laboratory and endurance tests that simulate a wide range of usage conditions.

Aesthetic design also plays an important role in longevity. The JURA collection of products have strong, clean lines so that they still look fresh and new even after years of service.

A study published in February 2021 led by Consumentenbond, the largest consumer organization in the Netherlands, shows that the JURA approach is the right one. It revealed that coffee machines have an average service life of six years. But at nine years, JURA machines last 50% longer.

Example for serviceability today: Used grinder for an automatic specialty coffee machine

The grinder is the perfect example of the workmanship that goes into modern JURA coffee machines. Every time coffee is prepared, the high-performance grinder freshly grinds the beans to just the right fineness. Over time, the grinding parts will inevitably start to show signs of wear. To service the component, the entire grinder is removed. It makes its way to the reconditioning department, where it undergoes a thorough visual inspection and electromechanical testing. If it passes both of these checks, the part can be reused.

First, all the different elements are thoroughly cleaned. Before reassembly, any parts with signs of wear are replaced – usually the grinding mechanism. Each individual grinder is then precisely and expertly adjusted. Once the grinder has passed the final function and quality check and is as good as new, the reconditioned component re-enters the service cycle. This process involves a lot of work, but it is more than balanced out by the minimal requirements for new materials and the maximum reuse of materials and components.
