Be your own barista with this innovative espresso machine that combines the convenience of one-touch operation with the control and fine adjustment of a manual brewer. Designed to tackle the most difficult tasks in espresso brewing—dosing, grinding, and tamping the coffee and steaming the milk for just the right amount of texture—the Oracle turns even amateur coffee enthusiasts into seasoned professionals.

With groundbreaking automatic dosing, grinding and tamping, hands-free milk texturing, and a one-touch Americano button that adds heated water to brewing espresso without moving the cup, the Oracle makes it easier than ever to create flawless espresso drinks at home.

Every aspect of the Oracle—from the dual boilers and revolutionary triple-heat system to the dedicated Americano spout—has been engineered to deliver the ultimate in home espresso: rich, bean-to-cup perfection in under a minute.

So pleased with this machine
Let me start by saying that this is hardly a manual machine. I upgraded from a true manual machine and liked the feeling that I made the perfect drink. This machine really does do all the work. Moving the filter from one spot to another will not make you a barista. But it is so easy to use that making a latt� is never a time-consuming chore, no matter how sleepy I am. I love being able to steam and brew at the same time. No more watching the thermometer in the milk and no more separate grinder! Clean-up is a simple wipe down and rinse of the tools (the milk 'gunk' wipes right off the removable steam head). It even has retractable wheels if you need to move it around on the counter! Plus it actually looks like an espresso machine...not a box with a digital readout and spout

Best Esperesso Machine Ever.
I have been unsent the Oracle for about 3 months now, and this machine is the best one that I have very used. I've used several from fully manual, to the Jura automatic, and Nespresso Machines. The Oracle is the perfect balance between manual and automatic. Once you get the grind and the timing setup, It's very simple to use and the espresso shots come out perfect every time.
