Until now you have been asked to choose between a manual and an automatic. The oracle is the world’s first automatic manual espresso machine that brings true cafe 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 espesso.
Provides the taste benefits of a manual with the simplicity of an automatic.
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.
At the heart of the oracle are its dual stainless steel boilers and patent pending triple heat system, allowing you to extract espresso and texture milk simultaneously.
