Jura Ena Micro 1 ReviewOur Jura Ena Micro 1 Review (Model 13626) will cover everything there is to know about this compact automatic espresso machine.

Do not be deceived by this unit’s small footprint. It packs quite a wallop! We guarantee that you wouldn’t be able to differentiate the drinks this unit produces from those at your local coffee shop.

This unit is capable of making many of your favorite drinks including: coffee, espresso, and ristretto.

Jura has included a 2 year warranty with purchase of this unit for peace of mind.
