Also, I have a Jura Automatic Machine. Before this one we had a DeLonghi for almost 5 years but it needed to be replaced. I wanted to buy something manual (not automatic machine) but we are really lazy and again we bought an automatic machine. However, I really hope that Jura S8 will be a good choice and the coffee will taste great. How should we set the grinder to grind the coffee?"
With your coffee being roasted fresh this morning, if you order by around 11am, I am able to package your coffee and lodge it with the courier today - they can deliver it to Baulkham Hills tomorrow.
I completely understand your choice of automatic machine, in fact, it can be a better choice than a standard machine. With the automatic machine, you, your wife or visitors can make a great coffee at ease, whereas with a manual machine, perhaps you will always be tasked with the responsibility and you wouldn't enjoy it as much.
For the coffee grind setting, it is individual to each machine, even of the same type. Aim for a grind that allows your coffee to extract in 30 seconds. If it is longer than that, you'd need to make your grind a little more coarse to allow the water to pass through more easily. If it is gushing out too fast, make your grind finer.
