Jata CA288N

Name: CA288
Brand: Jata
Type: Drip
Operation: Automatic
Capacity: 1 litre

Jata is a well-known brand in the market, not only for coffee machines but also for the whole kitchenware sector. One of the models that best represent the values of this firm is the Jata CA288, a filter coffee machine of the cheapest kind, but with an interesting design and features for the cost, it has.

The Jata CA288N drip coffee machine has a capacity of 1 litre and around 600 watts of maximum power. It includes a glass jug the same size as the tank.

Both its design and the distribution of elements follow the classic patterns of this segment of machines. However, it is surprising to find some chrome and metal finishes (we say that it is surprising because of the low cost of the coffee maker).

Also striking is the shape of the tank, which is very flattened at the base and considerably wider at the top. This gives the Jata CA288N coffee machine a rather peculiar appearance, recognisable to the naked eye.

As you can see in the following picture, this Jata filter coffee machine has a classic anti-drip safety system. It is a small valve whose purpose is to block the dripping immediately in case the glass carafe is removed from its position.

Jata CA288N: The jata drip coffee machine

When we think about buying a cheap drip coffee maker, we usually don’t look for much information and settle for any model we find on the shelves of the shop or mall in question. Bad mistake, folks!

If you look through the catalogues of Spanish coffee companies, you’ll find some very interesting examples, such as the Jata CA288, whose popularity is due to its low price.

It’s a drip coffee machine for up to 8 cups (if you like long coffees, you’ll get some less) and with a much narrower base than other similar models. To access the tank, you just have to lift the classic plastic lid, which in this case is different from the one that gives access to the filter holder.

The filter holder – which we haven’t talked about yet – has a mesh filter of the permanent ones, although if we don’t like the way the coffee looks, we can always replace it with one of the classic paper filters of all time.

In any case, if you want to know in detail all the specifications of this Jata CA-288, you only have to read below:
