Compare Jura Ena 8 Vs E8

First, we all want to know the design and convenience, and those things I’ll cover right away.

Jura Ena 8 vs Jura E8

Talking about the design, and the first look at Jura Ena 8 and E8, you’ll notice their sleek and stylish look. Coffee makers are quite similar, with just a few details that help us tell what model we are looking at.

To be more precise, designs are almost identical to a control panel, along with spouts. However, the difference appears soon as you look at the water reservoir. While the E8 has a water reservoir that slides into the body for a neat construction, Jura ENA 8 has it on the right side looking at the machine.

Speaking about the color, I can say that Jura E8 is a bit more conservative model. It is available in two neutral colors of black and stainless steel. Jura ENA 8 is available in either metallic or red. Choosing a color is a personal preference and there is nothing to comment really.

Jura ENA 8 dimensions

The Ena 8 measures 12.7 x 17.5 x 10.7 inches and weighs 20.7 lbs.

Jura E8 dimensions

The Jura E8 has a dimension of 13.8 x 17.3 x 11 inches with a weight of 21.6 lbs.

Like you see, till now both machines have roughly the same specifications. They have almost the same dimensions and weight. However, there are some differences between them, but none to give the one product advantage over the other one.

To be completely honest, while I was writing this review, I’ve chosen the Jura E8 as a better choice. Just love the design and piano color. But hey, that is just me talking… I have to finish this comparison between Jura ENA 8 vs Jura E8.

Jura ENA 8 and E8 Capacity

Speaking about the capacity, I can say that Jura E8 wins. Both, bean hopper and the water tank are bigger than those of ENA 8.

Jura E8 capacity: E8 is designed with a 10 oz bean hopper and with an 8-cup water tank.

Jura ENA 8 capacity: Jura Ena 8 has a 4.4 oz hopper and a 4.7-cup tank.

There is a significant capacity difference between Jura Ena 8 and E8. Furthermore, the Jura E8 coffee maker features dual spouts, and it is able to make two cups of coffee simultaneously. Jura Ena 8 can make only one cup at a time.

What features do they share?

I’m going to start with the features and accessories that Ena 8 and E8 share.

Just by looking at the inside coffee machine you can see all the complexity and get a better understanding of the price.

Jura brand has been recognized worldwide for so many years, by selling only the best coffee machines. These two models aren’t exceptions, and no matter what you decide – you’ll get a top-notch fully automated coffee machine.

Enough said, let me note features and accessories these Jura coffee makers share, and those they don’t share.

Once again, it is worth mentioning, both coffee makers are Jura brands. I’m writing a review of two fully automatic coffee makers, equipped with Jura’s exclusive technology known as Pulse Extraction Process. P.E.P. optimizes the extraction time to ensure perfectly made aroma-full espresso. Both coffee makers are equipped with a modern TFT display together with buttons to adjust coffee strength and volume at ease.

For me, it is absolutely understandable that both Jura models feature built-in frother and grinder. Yes, they make fresh coffee without the need for specially made capsules.

Jura ENA 8 and Jura E8 have some extra features, and self-cleaning is the one I like the most. Besides that, both coffee makers have calc-clean, anti-calc, and rinsing functions.

Other features they share are a hot water system, cup illumination, an auto shut-off system, and an energy-saving mode.

Let me note some features that are unique to each product. What they don’t share?

You can adjust the coffee strength on both models, but Jura ENA 8 has 10 settings while Jura E8 has eight. I can’t find anything else worth mentioning.

Detailed Jura E8 review could be found in my previously written post, which is why I’ve decided to go with Jura ENA 8 review now.
