Overview

Breville may have traveled to an ancient land for the answers, but arrived at only one conclusion – the Oracle! Gather around and present your deepest coffee concerns, because we have a feeling you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Grinder, scale and tamper not needed! The Oracle automatically doses, grinds and tamps freshly ground beans from the ½ pound removable bean hopper into a 58mm stainless steel portafilter. While the shots brew, take advantage of the dual boilers and allow the Oracle to simultaneously froth your milk with the automatic or manual latte (less texture) and cappuccino (maximum texture) settings. No one machine has all the answers, but we think this one comes pretty close!

    • Pros
      • Gunk Be Gone!: The Oracle automatically purges the steam wand after each use. One less thing to remember when making the perfect latte!
      • Automated Features: This machine offers automated features not normally found on semi-automatic machines.
      • Dual Boilers: Allows you to simultaneously brew espresso and froth milk, saving you time!
    • Cons
      • Grind Dosage: Coffee geeks will be unable to change the exact amount of ground espresso dispensed.
  • How Does it Compare?
    This machine offers automated features not normally found on semi-automatics, but may take just as long to "dial in" the perfect shot.
  • Tips and Tricks
    Frothing milk on the Oracle is no joke and easily climbs to high temperatures. Be sure to wipe the wand immediately after each use, as hot milk sticks to steam wands.
