Until now you have been asked to choose between a manual and an automatic. The Breville Oracle is the world's first automated manual espresso machine that brings true café quality to your home.
The Oracle has automatic grinding, dosing, tamping and milk texturing, automating the two most difficult parts of manual espresso. The hands free automatic grind, dose and tamp works with the integrated conical burr grinder to deliver the required amount of coffee, mess free, into the filter basket. The automatic milk texturing then textures milk to the selected temperature and style, from silky smooth latte (less texture) to creamy cappuccino (more texture). With the innovative One Touch Americano this machine delivers a double espresso, then separately through a dedicated spout, fills the cup with hot water, the same way as any good café. At the heart of the Oracle are its dual stainless steel boilers and patent pending triple heat system. The Oracle has a dedicated espresso boiler with PID technology to extract the espresso shot to within +/- 2°F (1°C) of the selected temperature.
The Breville Oracle also has a dedicated steam boiler to deliver instant and continuous steam on demand. You can extract espresso and texture milk simultaneously, allowing you to capture the delicate aromatics of the espresso in your coffee by having the espresso and milk ready at the same time.The Oracle also features an Over Pressure Valve (OPV) as well as a true low pressure pre-infusion, which gradually increases the pressure to gently expand the grinds for an even extraction.
There's a reason that this Oracle is the closest thing we carry to a super-automatic espresso machine, and that's because unlike other automatics it does everything the exact same way a semi-automatic machine would. Our team has been incredibly impressed with the Oracle and the newer Breville Oracle Touch.
