Until now you have been asked to choose between a manual and an automatic.

The Oracle is the worlds first automatic manual espresso machine that brings true caf quality to your home without the barista. 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). Finally, the innovative One Touch Americano feature delivers a double espresso, then separately through a dedicated spout, fills the cup with hot water, the same way as any good caf.

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 +/- 2F (1C) of the selected temperature. The 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). This commercial feature limits the maximum pressure throughout the extraction, helping to prevent bitter flavors 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.

The Oracle provides the taste benefits of a manual with the simplicity of an automatic.

Stainless Steel Dual Boilers

Dedicated espresso and steam boilers provide a consistent flow of steam for milk texturing while simultaneously extracting Espresso. This model can be descaled at home

Low Pressure Pre-Infusion

Low pressure pre-infusion gently delivers water pressure at between 2 to 4 bar to allow the coffee grinds to expand prior to extraction at the optimal full pressure of 9 bar. This enhances the release of the delicate oils to produce a balanced espresso. This pressure and its duration is user programmable.

Vibratory Pump

Dual 15 bar Italian made pumps to allow simultaneous milk texturing and espresso extraction.
