Jura redefines coffee with $5K machine

How much do you love coffee? Would you spend more than five thousand dollars on a machine? That’s roughly what a new model from Jura will cost, providing commercial features in a consumer machine.

Launched this week in Australia, the Jura Giga 5 looks like something else from the top. We think of a reel-to-reel or an old movie projector, but those discs hold two separate ceramic grinders, heating systems, and pumps beneath them, capable of making two specialty cups at once.

Jura says although the Giga 5 will arrive at a price for between $5,500 and $6,000, it will also have a smaller brother arriving for under $1,500.
