Event Recap: Breville Holiday Showcase
Upgrading to a new espresso machine or drip brewer during the holidays can be a stressful process. With a whole list of responsibilities on your plate to take care from entertaining guests to preparing a meal, it’s easy for great coffee to slip through the cracks. That’s why we asked Breville to show off new machines from their coffee product line at our Bellevue location before the holidays get here in full force! Joined by coffee experts from Breville and Counter Culture Coffee, guests were able to explore the diverse functions of the Breville Oracle Touch™, Breville Precision Brewer™, and soon to be released on seattlecoffeegear.com Breville Barista Touch™.
A Closer Look at Breville's New Products
Upon the release of the Breville Precision Brewer™, this versatile coffee maker is everything but boring. The perfect gift for a family of coffee snobs and novices alike, the Precision Brewer boasts a handful of programmable brew methods from a standard gold cup to cold brew.
If you’re a person who likes to roll out bed in the morning and head out the door without having to bat an eye at a complicated brew method, this machine is a perfect fit! However, the customizable bloom time, temperature, and flow rate will appeal to those who like a little more play in their brewing. Travis from Counter Culture demonstrated one of the most unique functions of the brewer – V60 pour over adaptability.
While the Breville Barista Touch™ is still shrouded in a bit of mystery as it has yet to see a release date through Seattle Coffee Gear, folks in attendance of the holiday showcase were able to get a hands-on first look at the machine leading up to it going online. Almost completely different that it’s close relative and namesake, the Barista Express, the new Touch features:
- Simple touch screen drink programmability
- Automatic steam wand producing café quality microfoam
- A built in conical burr grinder
- Sleek and compact footprint compared to the Oracle Touch
The Breville Oracle Touch™ has been one of our very favorite machines since it made its debut earlier this year. Boasting an impressive number of drink options, the updated iteration of the Breville Oracle gives users the freedom to program their perfect beverage to the machine without having worrying about deleting other user’s data.
Featuring an automatic dose and tamp function along with perfect hands-free steaming, the Oracle Touch allows users to pour and enjoy drinks without having to stress about the complicated nuances of pulling espresso. Did we mention that it has a massive 84 oz. water tank so guests need not worry about constantly refilling the machine at a social gathering!Want to win these new products from Breville?
