Nearly as compact as the entry-level Jura A1 with an identically-sized 36.8 oz water reservoir and 4.4 oz bean hopper, the Jura ENA 8 is a great mid-level machine — especially if you're looking for a model whose design aesthetics add a little "wow" factor.
I mean, just look at that water tank.
But the ENA 8 isn't just about form. It's also about function as this small-yet-powerful, super-automatic espresso machine packs plenty of functionality into its tiny frame:
However, there are a couple of limitations that ENA 8 users need to be OK living with (or, rather, without):
The Jura ENA 8 is a great mid-level model designed by an industry-leading brand and built with high-quality internal components for a reliable (and delicious) espresso-based beverage day after day.
That said, its price tag may leave you scratching your head (or running for the hills).
Despite the ENA 8's small water reservoir, bean hopper, and selection of programmed drinks, it has nearly the same price tag as the much more feature-rich E8 and S8.
What gives, Jura?!
Ultimately, ENA 8 owners are making the conscious decision to pay a premium for its aesthetically-pleasing design and high-quality-construction in a space-saving design, even if that means leaving a few extra nice-to-have features on the table.
