Venir de + infinitive

Venir de + infinitive

So if venir de + infinitive means to have just done something, why has ‘juste’ been introduced in the sentence “Je viens juste d’emménager”. It sounds a bit like “i’ve just just moved”.

As I understand, it's optional. Using it simply provides an emphasis, but not needed to convey this concept of immediacy.
