The Oracle is a true miracle of coffee engineering. Billed as the world's first 'Automatic Manual' espresso machine, it combines the ease of use of a bean to cup machine, with the coffee quality of a fully manual professional set-up - no more dry, frothy lattes!

Making a coffee on this couldn't be simpler. The machine grinds, doses, and tamps automatically, so all you need to do is put the portafilter in place and push a button. It then steams the milk automatically to a beautiful shiny microfoam texture. All you have to do is pour the milk into the espresso and enjoy! The milk texture from the automatic steam wand even allows for great latte art with minimal effort - a far cry from the bubbly milk that comes from traditional bean to cup machines.
The machine is no slouch on the espresso front either. It features similar internals to the excellent Dual Boiler, including twin PID boilers and actively heated grouphead for optimal brew temperature stability, true low-pressure preinfusion and an overpressure valve to precisely control pressure throughout the shot. These features, only found on commercial or the very best prosumer machines, mean that this machine, despite being fully automatic, is capable of making top quality espresso drinks.
