Gorgeous is the word for the new Jura Giga 6. Inside, it features everything a coffee lover could want, but let’s start with the outside, where it looks like it should be in a museum. It’s like buying a Hermés Birkin or Chanel bag (or a Porsche for guys). And Jura knows it as they priced the Giga 6 at $6,000. Let’s see: $6 a cup at the local barista, 3 times a day. Yeah, you’ll be able to rationalize the investment soon enough, especially when you realize it employs artificial intelligence to learn how to customize its drink recipes and brewing settings just for you. It also features haute brewing with Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.), Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System (I.P.B.A.S.), a 15-bar pump and the Thermoblock heating system. This machine is so fine you’ll be bringing your local barista home to train with it; US.Jura.com.
