3. WELCOME TO THE IMPRESSA E Series
This fully automatic coffee center is completely programmable
and extremely user friendly. Your Impressa E can prepare one or
two cups of crema coffee at a time. The two-step pressure
brewing system – well known in commercial applications – was
adapted and refined by Jura coffee specialists and is the trademark of each Jura-Capresso coffee center. This Pre-Brew
Aroma-System ensures optimal coffee extraction and will finish
every cup with a rich layer of "crema" – proof for perfectly pres-
3a. "CREMA COFFEE" AND PRESSURE BREWING
According to the majority of coffee experts, grinding, tamping
and brewing under high pressure is the ideal extracting process
for maximum flavor and aroma. Your Jura-Capresso automatic
coffee center will always produce espresso and coffee with a
thick, foamy layer called "crema." The crema traps the fine aromatics and the light gaseous flavors that register on the palate.
The high pressure and the short brewing time prevent the
9.
extraction of bitter oils and release less caffeine than any other
brewing method. You will always make the absolute freshest
and most aromatic cup of coffee. This is the reason why many
European restaurants and hotels serve fresh pressured brewed
coffee only. Experiment with your new machine and prepare
yourself the best and most enjoyable cup of coffee!
prepared. Typical US espresso roasts result in darker beans with
an oily outside. European espresso roasts are medium brown
with no or very little oils showing on the outside.
Please note: Dark, oily beans: see chapter 7.
4. PLEASE, DON’T... (or you void your warranty protection):
• Never pull out the drawer during the brewing process.
• Never fill instant coffee into the bean container or ground coffee
funnel; it can damage the brewing chamber.
• Never fill flavored or sugar coated beans into the bean
container.
• Never fill frozen beans into the bean container. If you store
beans in the freezer, let them thaw for 3 to 4 hours before
filling them into the bean container.
• Never fill anything other than coffee beans into the bean
container (no chocolate, rice, nuts, spices, etc.)
• Never fill anything but fresh, cold clean water into the water
container, except when decalcifying (chapter 20c).
• Never use mineral or carbonated water. You can use tap
water, spring water, distilled water and reverse osmosis water.
• Never repair or open the machine yourself. All repairs should
be performed only by an authorized service center.
3b. DIFFERENT COFFEE DRINKS
Here are some guidelines for the most popular coffee drinks:
• Ristretto: 1/2 to 1 oz. of coffee. Sweeten to taste
• Espresso: 1 to 2 oz. coffee. Sweeten to taste
• Double Shot: 3 to 4 oz. of coffee. Sweeten to taste
• Crema Coffee: 5 to 8 oz. of coffee
• Cappuccino: Espresso plus 3 to 4 oz. of hot frothed milk.
• Latte: Espresso plus 3-5 oz. steamed milk with little or no froth.
• Café Mocha: Make Espresso then add chocolate syrup to the
milk before frothing/steaming.
Experiment with the size of your milk based drinks. For stronger
coffee taste add more coffee, for more milk taste use more
frothed milk.
3c. COFFEE FACTS
• Caffeine is tasteless. A "strong" coffee or espresso is mostly
the result of the amount of coffee in relation to the amount of
water. The longer a bean is roasted, the less caffeine it has.
• Arabica and Robusta are two genetically different kinds of
beans. "Arabica" beans have more flavor and a little less caffeine
than "Robusta" beans which are mostly used in lower priced
coffees and instant coffees.
• Espresso is not a bean, it's the way the coffee is roasted and
PLEASE, DO...
• Fill water tank with fresh, cold water only.
• Remove any foreign particles (small stones) from coffee beans.
• Let frozen beans thaw for 3 to 4 hours before pouring them
into the bean container.

display will show FILL BEANS. Push the 1-Cup button again.
Discard this first cup of coffee. Your next cup will be perfect.
Please note: If coffee only comes out of one spout, move the
spout up and down a few times to clear the internal flow.
You are now ready to make coffee.
5. FACTORY SETTINGS
Each machine leaves the factory with the following settings:
Filter ..................... – (not installed)
Hardness Level .... 2
Aroma ................... ROBUST
Auto Off ................ 2 hours after last use
Language ............. English
Cup Size ………….. OZ.
Rinse ……………… ✔
The Dial is set to 4 OZ. for coffee and for hot water and
for 60 SEC for steam.
6. PREPARING THE MACHINE FOR THE FIRST TIME
• Make sure all accessories, literature and any other items are
removed from the machine and the water tank.
• Make sure the machine sits on an even, flat surface and the
drawer, tray and used coffee container are inserted (Fig 2).
• Plug-in machine.
• Do NOT fill water tank now.
Important: Do not install the Clearyl Water Filter cartridge
now. It can block the machine.
• Turn the machine on by pressing the ON/OFF button (Fig. 3a).
The display shows FILL WATER.
• Remove water tank, fill with fresh, cold water and replace.
The display shows OPEN TAP
The following procedure is only necessary when setting up the
machine for the first time and after the procedure "Emptying
System Before Transport" (chapter 19f).
7. ADDING COFFEE BEANS
• Open the bean container lid (Fig. 1, 9), fill with beans (Fig. 5).
The container holds approx. 220 grams (8 oz.). Close the lid.
Frozen Beans: Thaw for 3 to 4 hours before adding to bean
container. This prevents moisture from seeping into the grinder.
11.
Flavored / Sugar Coated Beans: DO NOT fill these type beans
into the bean container. The sugars will stick to the burrs and
clog the flow of ground coffee. Have your local coffee store
grind these type beans and use as described in chapter 11.
Using Oily Beans: Beans with an oily surface tend to stick
together. This may prevent a continuous flow of beans from the
bean container into the burrs. As a result the grinder does not
grind enough coffee and you might get weak or no coffee at all.
Stir the beans in the bean container just before grinding.
Alternatively, you can also pour the beans in an open bowl and
let them sit for about 5 hours. The oils will evaporate (this will
not change the taste of your coffee). Then fill the beans into the
bean grinder. Now beans will feed into the burrs more easily.
• Push and hold On/Off button until the display turns on. If your
machine is cold the display shows HEATING. After approx. 2
minutes the display shows RINSE.
• Press the Rinse Button (Fig. 3,f). Hot water will warm up all
internal parts and pump through the coffee spouts. The water
will be caught in the drawer underneath. The rinse cycle stops
by itself and the display reads: READY You are now ready to
make coffee.
10. GRINDING AND BREWING
The Impressa E uses a 2-step brewing process (Pre-Brew Aroma
System). First it moistens the ground coffee (pre-brew phase),
pauses for a few seconds and then starts the brewing process.
• Adjust the height of the coffee spout to your cup size (Fig. 12)
and place one or two cups underneath the coffee spouts.
HOTTER COFFEE? Pre-warm cup with hot water through frother.
See chapter 12 "Using Hot Water". Empty cup and brew coffee.
8. ADJUSTING THE GRINDER
You can adjust the grinder to the roast of your coffee.
We recommend the following:
Light roast: use a finer adjustment.
Dark roast: use a coarser adjustment.
• Open the lid of the bean container.
• While the grinder is running turn the grind selector switch to
the desired position (Fig. 6).
– The smaller the dots, the finer the grind.
– The bigger the dots, the coarser the grind.
Important: The grinding grade can only be adjusted while
the grinder is actually grinding.
10a. SELECTING CUP SIZE AND STRENGTH
Cup Size 1 OZ. to 8 OZ; max: 16 oz.
• Push the Dial. It will illuminate and the display will show the
cup size in oz, e.g. 4 OZ.
• Turn the dial to select any cup size between 1 OZ. and 8 OZ.
Your machine will always remember the last setting. After 5
seconds the display will change back to READY.
• When using the 2-Cup button the machine will automatically

funnel with one or two scoops of ground coffee.
Important: Do NOT fill this funnel with instant coffee and do
not use more than two level scoops of coffee.
• Push the 1-Cup or 2-Cup button. The machine will tamp and
brew coffee.
Please note: If you push the scoop button accidentally push
the 1-Cup button. Display shows ADD MORE POWDER. The
machine will start brewing, stop and return to READY.
Please note: After use of sugar coated or flavored coffee
through the pre-ground coffee funnel you may experience some
flavor transfer when going back to your regular coffee.
• Push and hold the Rinse Button (Fig. 3f) until the display
shows RINSE.
• The Dial illuminates. Push the Dial (Fig. 3e). The machine will
perform one rinse cycle and the display will return to READY.
AROMA-setting "STANDARD" has the shorter grinding times.
AROMA-setting "ROBUST" has the longer grinding times.
When using the 2-Cup button the grinder will always grind
between 9 and 10 seconds.

strength setting. When the pre-brew cycle starts, it will show the
actual cup size. At this time you can still change the cup size by
turning the Dial.
When using the 2-Cup button, the display will first show
2 CUPS. When the pre-brew cycle starts, the display shows the
cup size for one cup. At this time you can still change the cupsize by turning the Dial.
Please note: After the pre-brew cycle you can always stop the
brewing process by pushing the 1-Cup or 2-Cup button. This will
not affect your cup size setting for the next brew cycle.
Important: Never try to pull out the tray as long as the machine
is grinding, brewing or discarding the used coffee. Always wait
until the display shows READY.
12. USING HOT WATER
READY – 1 OZ. to 16 OZ. – SHUT TAP - READY
This feature allows you to pre-warm your cup, make a cup of tea
or soup or add hot water to your coffee making it weaker.
• Place a cup underneath the frother (Fig. 13).
• Turn the Steam/Water Selector to the water symbol (Fig. 4b).
Hot water will push through the frother. The display shows the
amount of hot water. You can change it from 1 to 16 oz. by
turning the Dial (Fig. 3e) now. The machine remembers the last
setting. When the water flow stops, display shows SHUT TAP.
• Turn the Steam/Water Selector back to the cup symbol. READY.
Please note: You can always stop the flow of hot water by
turning the dial to the cup symbol.
11. USING PRE-GROUND COFFEE
You can also use pre-ground coffee, bypassing the grinder. This
comes in handy if someone requests decaf, sugar coated or
flavored coffee.
• Push the Pre-Ground Coffee Button (Fig. 3h). The display
shows: FILL POWDER
13.
13. FROTHING and STEAMING
The steam function can be used to heat up any liquid and to
steam and froth milk.
Steaming Position:
The Frother's metal cylinder is in the UP position (Fig. 16). In the
steaming position hot steam is injected into the milk (or any
other liquid) without creating a frothy layer on top.
Typically a Latte has steamed milk with no froth.
Frothing Position:
The Frother's metal cylinder is in the DOWN position (Fig. 16). In
the frothing position hot steam and air is injected into the milk
creating warm milk and a firm layer of tiny froth bubbles.
Please note: When you start steaming, some hot water will
push out of the nozzle before the steam begins. When frothing
a lot of milk this will not change the taste of your frothed milk.
You can also release this small amount of hot water into the
tray or into a separate container:
• Turn the Steam/Water Selector to the Water Symbol for one
second and then back to the Cup symbol. Now start
frothing/steaming.
Please note: When you stop the steam output the display will
show STEAM READY for the next 20 seconds. Within this
time you can continue to use the steam function.
If you want to steam at a later time you must first press the
Steam button (Fig. 3g).
14. HEATING AND FROTHING MILK
READY – HEATING - STEAM READY - 60 SEC - CLOSE TAP
• Push the Steam button (Fig. 3g). Display shows HEATING.
• Add cold milk to a pitcher or a cup.
• After 15 to 30 seconds the display shows STEAM READY.
• Immerse the tip of the frother into the milk (Fig 17&18) and
turn the Steam/Water Selector to the Water/Steam Symbol.
Hot steam will be injected into the milk. The display shows
how long steam will be forced through the frother, 60 SEC.
• At this time you can change the steam output from 3 and 120
seconds. The machine will remember your last setting. When
the selected steam time is up, the display shows SHUT TAP.
• Turn the Steam/Water Selector to the cup symbol. If you need
more steam turn the Selector back to the water/steam symbol.
Please note: You can always stop the steam output by turning
the Steam/Water Selector to the cup symbol.
Tips for frothing (Cappuccino):
The tip of the frother should not touch the bottom of your pitcher.
Start in the steaming position – cylinder "up" (Fig. 16) – for a few
seconds. Then push the cylinder "down". Milk froth will build up.
This way the froth on top of your milk is also warm.
Hotter milk? If the frothed milk is not warm enough, continue in
the steaming position.
Steaming and frothing directly in your cappuccino cup:
With practice, you can steam and froth directly in your cappuccino
cup. First steam and froth the milk, then add your espresso shot.
Please note: The less fat content the milk has the more froth will
be created. Skim milk will produce the most froth and will let
you taste more of the coffee. 1% and 2% milk will give you less
froth. Regular whole milk (3% fat) will produce the least amount
of froth. You can also use soy milk.
14.
15. CLEANING THE DUAL FROTHER PLUS
Always keep the Dual Frother Plus clean and free of milk
deposits. Hardened milk particles will make it impossible to
create milk froth.
Fast cleaning:
Display shows READY. Place a cup underneath the frother (Fig.
13) and turn the Steam/Water Selector to the water symbol. Let
hot water run through the frother for about 3 seconds and then
stop. This will flush out any small milk droplets.
steam nozzle (the connector should sit flush with the chrome
sleeve (Fig. 15b) so that the steam nozzle is no longer visible).
Please note: If the parts are not put together tightly it will not be
possible to create the frothy foam on top of the milk.
16. CLEARYL WATER FILTER CARTRIDGE
The machine comes with one Water Filter Cartridge. This
cartridge is specially made for use with the Impressa E series.
The cartridge:
• Reduces the water hardness up to 75%.
• Removes (if present) up to 85% chlorine, up to 90% lead, up
to 95% copper and up to 67% aluminum.
• Cleans the water through an upward current principle (Fig. 8)
just before the brewing cycle starts, ensuring freshly filtered
water every time you make coffee.
• Eliminates decalcifying. When using the water filter cartridge,
you never need to decalcify your machine.
• To reorder cartridges see chapter 22 "Supplies".
Thorough cleaning of the Dual Frother parts:
• Remove the Dual Frother (Fig. 14) from the Steam Nozzle (Fig. 15c)
by pulling down the soft collar of the clip-on connector.
• Unscrew the black tip (Fig.14a) from the Clip-On Connector
(Fig. 14c). You can use a coin to loosen the black tip.
• Soak all three parts in hot soapy water.
• Make sure that the two side holes and the channel of the black
tip (Fig. 14a) are free of any milk deposits.
Cleaning the Steam Nozzle (Fig. 15c)
• Place a cup underneath the Steam Nozzle (the Dual Frother is
off) and let a bit of hot water run through the Steam Nozzle.
Tip: If the steam nozzle is blocked by hardened milk, use a
needle and loosen up the milk deposit. Then let some hot
water pass through the Steam Nozzle.
16a. INSTALLING & ACTIVATING THE CLEARYL WATER
CARTRIDGE
Important: Never install the cartridge before or during
"Preparing Machine For The First Time."
• Make sure the water tank is empty.
• Remove cartridge from its bag and rinse cartridge under water

16b. REPLACING THE CLEARYL WATER CARTRIDGE
The filter is monitored automatically. After approx. 75 liters of
water (~2,500 oz.), the filter loses its effect. The display changes
from READY to CHANGE FILTER / MACHINE READY. You can
still make coffee, but we recommend replacing the filter within
one week!
Attention: The filter should be changed every 3 months if you
use less than 75 liters of water. In this case, no message will
appear in the display.
Important: Once the filter has lost its calcium suppressing
abilities, calcium will build up inside the machine. Since the
Water Hardness Selector is off, the machine will not remind you
when to decalcify. This could clog and ruin your machine.
• Remove the old filter. The cartridge is environmentally friendly.
Dispose it with your regular household trash.
• Make sure the water tank is empty.
• Remove the new cartridge from its bag.
• Open water container lid and pull up the holder for the
cartridge (Fig. 9).
• Insert the cartridge with its tapered end down into the water
container. Make sure it fits securely inside the fins. Push down
gently (Fig.10).
• Close the holder for the cartridge so that it engages in the
water tank (Fig.11).
• Fill the water tank with fresh cold water and replace.
1. Push and hold the Rinse Button. The display shows RINSE

HEATING. READY.
Please note: As long as the filter is activated, the water
hardness setting is automatically turned off.
IMPORTANT: Do not let the filter dry out.
If you do not use your IMPRESSA for more than three days in a
row and you still have an active filter, we recommend the following easy procedure: Empty the water tank, remove the filter and
immerse it at least to a third of its length into a cup with cold
water. Store the cup in the refrigerator. This way the filter does
not dry out. When you use your machine again, install the filter.
Use the hot water cycle and let approx. 16 oz. of water run
through the system. Initially the water may be slightly discolored.

HEATING. READY.
17. ADJUSTING THE WATER HARDNESS
Water is heated inside the machine. With use, this leads to
calcium deposits forming inside the machine. The display will
remind you when it is time to perform a decalcifying cycle. The
machine is set to level 2 (medium hard water). If you have
harder water you need to set it to a higher level. If you have
softer water you can set it to level 1. If you are not sure about
the hardness of your water, ask your local water company for
the "Water Hardness in Grains."
HARDNESS LEVEL 1: grains 2-9
HARDNESS LEVEL 2: grains 10-19
HARDNESS LEVEL 3: grains 20-29
HARDNESS LEVEL 4: grains 30+
You can also use the enclosed water hardness indicator strip to
determine the water hardness:
• Insert the stick for one second into the water you want to
use. Shake off any access water and wait for one minute.
• If all five fields of the test stick turn reddish, set the hardness
level to 4. If four fields turn reddish, set the hardness level to 3.
If three or less fields turn reddish, leave the level in position 2.
• If you use Spring Water you can set the hardness level to 1.
You can change the hardness settings as follows:

replaces the Dual Frother Plus and allows you to fill cup after
cup with the desired amount of hot milk and milk froth automatically. See video for details. Sold separately.
24. TROUBLESHOOTING
A. NO COFFEE COMES OUT OF THE COFFEE SPOUT
Reason: Beans in bean container are not feeding properly into
the grinder because they are stuck together.
Solution: Stir beans before grinding and while grinding turn the
grinding selector to the coarsest setting. See chapter 7.
Reason : You used ground coffee in the ground coffee funnel.
The ground coffee was too fine.
Solution: Use ground coffee which is ground somewhat coarser.
Reason : No water is transported through the system.
Solution: Remove water container and make sure that the connecting valve is free of any particles (like a coffee bean etc).
Reason: The ground coffee funnel or the internal brewing chamber
is clogged.
Solution: Place a large cup underneath the coffee spout. Push
the Rinse button (Fig. 3f) until the display shows RINSE. Push the
Dial (Fig. 3e) RINSING. READY. Repeat the process if necessary
until the blocked coffee is pushed into the used coffee container.
B. THE DISPLAY READS "FILL WATER" BUT THERE IS
ENOUGH WATER IN THE WATER TANK.
Reason: The low water floatation device (Fig. 7.4) is missing.
Solution: Within the water tank is a small compartment (like a
mouse trap). Inside is a small black floatation device. On top is a
small clear see-through plastic cover. This small plastic cover is
missing and the floatation device is outside of the small compartment. Check if you can locate both pieces and put it back
together. If you cannot find them, call 1-800-220-5701. We will
send the pieces to you FREE OF CHARGE.
C. INSUFFICIENT FROTHED MILK PRODUCTION
Reason: Milk is initially not cold enough or your milk is not
suited for thick frothing.
Solution: Make sure milk is cold. Use a different type of milk.
Skim milk will produce the thickest and longest lasting froth. Full
fat milk will produce less thick froth. See chapter 14.
Reason: The components of the frother are not assembled
properly, or the components are clogged with hardened milk, or
one or more of the components is missing, or the steam nozzle
is clogged.
Solution: (See chapter 15)
a. Remove frother. Check that steam comes out of the steam
nozzle. If not, use a needle and clear blockage from inside
steam nozzle.
b. Clean all other frother parts and assemble properly.
c. If any parts are missing call Customer Service:
1-800-220-5701 or use the enclosed mail order form to order
the missing part.
D. GRINDER MAKES AN EXTREMELY LOUD NOISE;
NO BEANS ARE GROUND
Reason: A stone is blocking the burr grinder.
Solution: Call customer service: 1-800-220-5701.
23.
E. THE DRAWER (Fig. 19) DOESN’T PULL OUT OR DISPLAY
SHOWS MALFUNCTION 8
Solution: Turn off and unplug machine. Wait a minute. Turn
machine on and wait until it stops making any noise. Now try to
pull out the drawer. If this does not work, try the above procedure
again. If this does not work, call customer service:
