SOURCE: Weak Coffee

Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

SOURCE: I have a Jura S9A that is about 2 years old,

It's all plugged with 'lime scale'. That's the white stuff that builds up from hard water. Regular vinegar run through at least two cycles will clear it, then a couple with fresh water to rinse it. That will bring it back to normal flow!

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

SOURCE: My Jura x90 is making

There are two other most important reasons except grinding adjustment that influence the quality of espresso and it can be seen from the thickens and colour of cream.

The first is the water pressure which either the pressure pump can not create the 9 bars pressure or which is more possible scale deposits block the created pressure arriving over the coffee.

In this case you can perform rescale 2-3 times with internals a couple of days in this way you will be able to remove as much as possible scale deposits in the piping system of machine. You have 85% chance to sacked either you need to disassemble the complete piping system and descale it manually. So you can try the above first.

The second reason is the coffee group filter is dirty. You can remove it by unscrew the screw in the centre and by using warm water and metal brash you can clean it.

After these to procedures you can unjust the grinding so the espresso to run in the cup is about 20 to 22 seconds of aprox. 25-30 cc of espresso.

Have you tried completely powering it down, as far as unplugging it from the wall? Sorry if that's stating the obvious, but I'm a computer guy and 9 times out of 10, a 'reboot' fixes the problem.

How to reset the grinder burrs?

I took the grinder apart and found to have to replace the two metal grinding tools (inside cone and outside ring.
The parts for it were quite cheap. Just get yourself a proper instruction how to do it and follow it religiously. There are marks left by Jura engineers to calibrate the grinder assembly. Changing the actual grinder bits inside does not alter these if put together in the same position. The calibration is essential for a decent taste. After 7 years I would recommend a full service anyway. This will not be cheap, but all seals get replaced or just the brewing unit and the machine will be physically cleaned inside. Only a clean machine will give a decent taste. And the usual cleaning and de-scaling you can do is not enough to maintain a squeaky clean machine over the period of a few 1000 cups of coffee.

Disassemble ena 4

As far as I know the Jura machines have a special oval shape screw head on their panels...and Jura charge something outrageous like 150euro if you want to buy the tool for opening these! Mite be worth trying to open it some other way like by gluing a tool or something into the head and let it dry, then open it.... then maybe replace the oval head screw with a different screw type when reassembling. Not an easy method of getting past the problem but id sooner do it than pay for the tool!!
Hope this helps
