The Oracle™

The Oracle™ is the world’s first automatic manual espresso machine that brings true café quality to your home without the barista. The Oracle™ has automatic grinding, dosing, tamping and milk texturing, automating the most difficult parts of manual espresso.

At the heart of the Oracle™ is it's 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 temperture. 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™ provides the taste benefits of a manual with the simplicity of an automatic.

Triple Heat System

Triple Heat System

Separate espresso and steam boilers deliver precise water temperature for optimum extraction and simultaneous espresso and steam. 2 cappuccinos in 90 seconds.

Precise Auto Espresso Extraction

digital temperature control

Dual stainless steel boilers and heated group head, controlled by Breville's digital temperature control (PID), automatically delivers the water at precisely the right temperature to extract maximum flavour potential.

In-built Grinder

In-built Grinder

Limiting the time between the grinding of fresh beans and extraction captures those oils that lead to an incredible crema. The in-built grinder allows beans to espresso in under a minute.

Adjustable Grind Size

Adjustable Grind Size

45 grind settings for optimal espresso extraction.

Auto Micro-foam Texturing

Auto Micro-foam Texturing

Auto steam wand, powered by a dedicated boiler, textures milk to your taste and then it clears itself for you. Barista quality microfoam enhances coffee flavour and is essential for creating latte art.

Auto Purge

Auto Purge

Automatically purges steam through the steam wand to minimise cleaning.



Extraction is driven from a 15 bar Italian made pump.

Over Pressure Valve

Over Pressure Valve

Limits maximum pressure during extraction similar to a commercial machine.



The programmable pour, or semi-automatic function, simply controls the volume of the espresso pour, at the press of a button. That's 30ml for a single shot and 60ml for a double. Which, of course, is adjustable.



Until now you have been asked to choose, automatic or manual? Now that you can choose both, Club Oracle is dedicated to helping you, the coffee lover, get the very best from your machine.
