If you read the forums, coffee lovers who have already purchased the top-of-the range Breville Oracle which is the world's first automatic manual espresso machine, are raving about their new investment.

Breville Oracle Espresso Machine Seriously Impressive

One guy in the USA claimed it was "fantastic" because it stopped his wife having to constantly dive out to Starbucks for a coffee fix.


The Oracle is the world's first automatic manual espresso machine that allows owners to make coffee as good as the barista at your favourite coffee shop. Breville developed the Oracle, selling for $2,499, so it has automatic grinding, dosing, tamping and milk texturing, automating the most difficult parts of manual espresso.


Fat Duck restaurant owner and chef, Heston Blumenthal, reckons Australia has the best barista's outside of Italy, so it is not surprising that an Australian company has produced a top end coffee machine.


At the heart of the Oracle is its dual stainless steel boiler triple heat system.  The Oracle has a dedicated espresso boiler with PID technology to extract the espresso shot to within +/- 1?C of the selected temperature.


The dedicated steam boiler delivers 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.


There is also an Over Pressure Valve and this commercial feature limits the maximum pressure throughout the extraction, helping to prevent bitter flavours in the shot. It also has true low pressure pre-infusion, which gradually increases the pressure to gently expand the grinds for an even extraction.


This machine has also won a SmartHouse 2015 Best of the Best Award for Best Coffee Machine.
