Jura-Capresso Impressa C5 Automatic Coffee Center

Jura-Capresso Impressa C5 Automatic Coffee Center
Super Automatic Espresso & Coffee Center

Purchased this machine about three months ago and have been totally pleased with it. Owned a C 1000 and upgraded with the frothXpress PLUS as well…. Easy to program, easy to use and easy to clean. I have been through two cycles of cleaning with the tablets and the cleaning took about half the time the C 1000 took… It uses special Cearly Blue filters.. no discounts on these. They are a standard price and you replace them with every cleaning so there is a little expense with this.

The frothXpress is great and I use it only when I am making a few cappuccinos. It comes completely apart and cleans easily.

All in all, I could not be happier. The only thing that coul be better are the initial directions on how to use the machine. Having owned the other one, this one was easier to maneuver. The directions for the frothXpress PLUS are almost non-existent but I found some directions online which helped.

It is a hefty price for a machine but I value good coffee. You will not be disappointed.

The IMPRESSA C5 demonstrates how simple the enjoyment of a perfect cup of coffee can be. The latest addition to the IMPRESSA compact line sets new standards in coffee quality and looks as good as its performance. One of its most outstanding features is the smart operation: a whole range of coffee specialties can be made using a single control.

How to Make coffee Like a Barista in Your home

How do I make coffee at home like a barista?
I am a coffee lover and tried everything I can to make a decent cup at home. My coffee always turns out bad. What am I doing wrong? Any good coffee making tips?

You got to have good equipment and good coffee. There’s a lot of types of coffee, what exactly do you want to make? If it’s just regular coffee and you have a coffee maker just buy ground coffee beans at your favorite coffee shop or wherever you’ll find good coffee. If you’re not satisfied with the coffee maker coffee, i suggest you buy a French Press. It makes coffee that’s more flavorful and it’s very easy to use, doesn’t need coffee filter or electricity.
If you’re more interested in making flavored coffee like in Starbucks, you’re gonna need an espresso machine and learn how to steam milk properly.

How many teaspoons of coffee are in a 200 gram jar of coffee?

Question by engteach: How many teaspoons of coffee are in a 200 gram jar of coffee?
In other words, how many cups of coffee can you make from one jar of coffee?
What I need to know is how many cups of coffee – to drink (assuming 1 teaspoon of coffee and a cup of boinling water) can I make from a jar of 200 grams of coffee. I don’t need cups of ground coffee!

Best answer:

Answer by Betty
You can’t really convert weight to volume unless you have a conversion factor. You need to either need to know the average weight for a given volume of cofffee or you need the average density of gournd coffee to figure this problem out.

Edit: http://www.onlinconversion.com has program that does this sort of thing. According to them, 200 grams of ground coffee is about 106.78 tsp, 36 Tbsp or about 2.22 cups.

I don’t know how many tsp you get per cup, but this should be enough info for you to figure it out.

Edit: 1 tsp per cup, you’ll get 106.78 cups of coffee.

How to Use Less Coffee

What method of brewing coffee uses the least amount of coffee?
Coffee is expensive so I want to find a method to make it using the least amount necessary. I am happy to pay more for the machine needed as long as it uses less coffee!

I use one of those cloth filters you soak in the hot water – 1 table spoon -soak for 5 minutes – being Jewish it works.

What about Cold brewing?
