Connected bean-to-cup machines

Among our range of bean-to-cup coffee machines, you'll find the Jura brand and its connected models. We particularly like the J.O.E.® ("Jura Operating Experience") application. Add a personalized title and image for your favorite settings and launch your cappuccino or americano from your mobile or connected watch. It's just royal.

The Jura E8 Dark Inox brews up to 16 cups from the same bean container. A special decaf compartment is available for simultaneous use of two types of coffee beans. Treat yourself to one of these little jewels and create a real coffee bar in your home.

Machines that keep an eye on things

Pun aside, the machines we offer are truly programmed to serve you faithfully, day after day. The bean tanks of the coffee machines distributed by Torrefactory are designed to store enough beans for a dozen to thirty coffees. The Jura E6 and E8 models can brew a dozen different types of coffee, and their Cockpit control system alerts you when maintenance is required. Cleaning the milk duct is done by itself, by activating the task via a dedicated button. But it's the bean grinding and pulsed extraction process that really win us over. Coffee takes shape right under your nose. You have to drink it to believe it.

What pressure for your bean-to-cup machine?

If you're looking for a good espresso, you need a 9 bar machine. In fact, this is the ideal pressure recognized for the espresso beverage commonly known as "petit noir". However, bean-to-cup coffee machines offer higher pressures, enabling flavors to be properly extracted in a wide variety of preparations. Any higher pressure, however, will reduce the flow of water. A pressure of 15 bar is ideal for extracting all the aromas without making the coffee bitter.

Some bean-to-cup coffee machines are equipped with a hot-water nozzle, enabling you to prepare tea or freeze-dried soups. The design of the machine ensures that the water is at the perfect temperature and flow rate when it reaches the cup.

Does Angel Moriondo ring a bell?

Born in Turin in 1851, the young entrepreneur invented the first instant coffee machine. Patented as early as 1884, the machine was registered as an international patent in Paris in 1885, and improved over the years. Moriondo's idea, taken up by the Italian Desiderio Pavoni of Milan, brought us the individual homemade espressos we know today... and our beloved bean-to-cup coffee machines capable of preparing a dozen different beverages.

Choosing an environmentally-friendly bean-to-cup machine 

The appeal of bean-to-cup coffee machines from Torrefactory lies in the exceptional quality of the coffee they produce, and their potential to significantly reduce environmental impact compared with single-use coffee systems. By choosing beans, you avoid all the waste generated by plastic or aluminum capsules and pods, which are often difficult to recycle. This simple purchasing decision underlines your personal commitment to sustainability and respect for our planet. 

The environmental impact of a bean-to-cup coffee machine 

The bean-to-cup coffee machines considerably reduce the amount of waste generated by coffee consumption. Coffee beans, once ground and used, can be composted, returning to the earth without causing any damage, but can also help keep your sink in perfect condition! Indeed, you may not be aware of it, but coffee grounds are effective for cleaning your drains! This is in stark contrast to coffee capsules, whose production, use and disposal consume resources and generate waste that can persist in the environment for centuries. Choosing a bean-to-cup coffee machine means making a conscious choice for a greener future. 

How to choose an eco-responsible bean-to-cup coffee machine? 

When selecting a bean-to-cup coffee machine, several eco-responsible factors need to be taken into account. These include the machine's energy consumption, with a preference for those certified by energy labels. It's also important to consider water efficiency and the ease with which machine components can be recycled. Manufacturers committed to reducing the carbon footprint of their production deserve particular attention. These criteria ensure that the purchase of a bean-to-cup coffee machine makes a positive contribution to the collective effort to preserve the environment. 

The importance of durability when choosing a bean-to-cup coffee machine 

A durable bean-to-cup coffee machine is a wise investment for both you and the environment. By choosing a machine renowned for its longevity and energy efficiency, you reduce the need for frequent replacement, which in turn reduces the demand on natural resources and the associated waste. What's more, a durable machine often offers the option of being repaired rather than replaced in the event of a breakdown, thus extending its lifespan and contributing to a circular economy. 

By considering these aspects when choosing a bean-to-cup coffee machine from Torrefactory, you can enjoy superior quality coffee and also contribute to more sustainable, environmentally-friendly consumption. This demonstrates how conscious choices in our daily lives can have a significant positive impact on our planet.
