The Breville Oracle breaks new ground as a bridge between manual and automatic espresso machines. This dual-boiler features a built-in grinder and tamping system, programmable shot volumes, automatic milk frothing, PID temperature control, and more. With the Oracle you get nothing less than an all-in-one home espresso solution that combines innovative features with modern technology. 

Features & Benefits

The Oracle’s integrated grinder features Baratza European Precision Burrs and can be adjusted to one of 45 different grind settings, making dialing in for specialty roasts a breeze. The automatic grinding system automatically grinds, doses, and tamps 22 grams of coffee for the perfect dose every time. Or, practice your barista skills and dose yourself, whichever you prefer. 

The Oracle is also a dual-boiler machine. The dual stainless steel boilers and group head temperatures are controlled via PID, so you know you’re getting accurate temperatures when extracting. The automatic pre-infusion gently wets the puck before brewing at full 9-bar pressure in order to extract maximum flavor potential from specialty coffees. 

Finally, the Auto MilQ system automatically produces silky smooth microfoam perfect for pouring latte art with no skill required—just set your desired milk temperature and texture and let the machine do the rest. Of course, you can turn this off and froth your own milk if you’re looking to boost your barista skills.

Why You Should Get It

If you want to transform your kitchen into the ultimate home cafe with a single purchase, here’s your chance. The Breville Oracle is a powerful dual-boiler machine that allows you to brew and steam simultaneously. Plus it’s got a built-in grinder capable of precision dosing and a ton of built-in supports to help aspiring home baristas learn the skills necessary to brew delicious beverages with ease. 

You won’t need any barista skills to make great drinks with the Oracle, but you’ll continue to appreciate this machine after you begin to develop them. It will hold your hand as much (or as little) as you like, making it a great first espresso machine for someone who doesn’t want to have to buy a second one anytime soon.
