When you’ve recovered from the initial shock of hearing the price, read on to find why the Breville Oracle is worth the investment.
As a coffee machine on the luxury end of the price range, it’s good to know that a lot of effort has been put into the appearance of the Oracle. It comes with a high-class brushed stainless-steel finish, and the entire coffee machine oozes quality. There is a dual boiler in the Oracle that’s also made from stainless steel, again highlighting the durable materials Breville have used when manufacturing this model. Another fantastic feature on the Oracle is the automated touch screen in full color. From here, you can adjust coffee type, strength, temperature, milk texture and grind control. This gives you the full ability to transform a cup of coffee into your cup of coffee. You can also personalize a cup of coffee and save it on the Oracle, under the name of your choice with a coffee picture. You can save up to eight unique creations, so the coffee maker remembers it for next time. Pretty cool right?
The Breville Oracle weighs 37 pounds, so wherever you place it is probably where it’s going to stay! This coffee maker is sure to be a talking point of any kitchen, so it will take pride of place in any home. The silver finish is modern in design and will complement any style. The dimensions of this coffee machine are 15 x 16.8 x 18 inches so it will take up a lot of countertop space, especially compared to other coffee machines on the market. However, this impressive piece of kit is a showstopper and so as long as you have the room to accommodate it, it’s going to look swish.
With a stylish and contemporary appearance behind it, the Breville Oracle also has various features up its stainless-steel sleeve to impress you. It comes with five pre-programmed coffees that are firm favorites amongst coffee drinkers, such as cappuccino and flat white. All you have to do is select this as your drink of choice, and it brews it for you. With its dual boiler and great steam pressure, the Oracle creates perfectly extracted coffee with a rich and creamy milk texture in every cup full. With a micro-foam steam wand attached, this coffee maker gives you the opportunity to create barista-quality milky textures in your coffee, as well as dabbling in the skill of latte art if you so desire.
An integrated burr grinder and tamper mean the Oracle automatically grinds and tamps 22 grams of coffee, so you get that rich and bold coffee-shop coffee flavor every time. The heat technology on the Breville Oracle works to make sure the coffee stays at an optimum temperature by using digital temperature controls. This makes a difference in the taste quality of different types of coffee, so it’s great to see Breville implementing this technology on a luxury coffee machine.
Ease of Use
The great thing about an automatic coffee is that the cleaning is automatic too! The milk frothing wand cleans itself after use using steam, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of washing it after every use. The Oracle also comes with a cleaning kit included, giving you a helping hand when it comes to cleaning and general maintenance. It’s important to do regular checks on your coffee maker, especially one that is a higher-priced model like the Oracle, to improve its longevity. The drip tray on this coffee maker is removable so it can be cleaned separately, but the water tank is integrated into the overall design so is accessible from the top only. By keeping on top of the cleaning, checking out coffee machine reviews for hints and tips and using the auto-clean features, the Breville Oracle can easily become one of the best coffee machines to maintain quality.
As the Oracle coffee maker is an automatic machine, it is straightforward to operate and is not just limited to coffee connoisseurs. All you need to do is adjust the settings on the display screen, and the Oracle does the rest for you. The buttons and dials are comfortable to use, and the full-color touch screen makes it almost effortless to create your personalized coffee. The water tank is a spectacular 84 oz capacity, one of the biggest water tanks on any home coffee maker. You will be able to get numerous cups of coffee out of this coffee machine before you need to refill it with water, which is another bonus feature. The water tank lid opens from above so you can fill it when required, and the same goes for the coffee bean container, holding up to a maximum of 1/2 pound of beans.
Overall, The Breville Oracle coffee machine is, ultimately, a first-class coffee machine. Breville has included a 2-year repair warranty on it, so you know you’re covered if anything goes wrong with it. The price is a big factor when considering buying this coffee machine, but if you can afford it and want to invest in a top-quality coffee maker, the Oracle won’t let you down. With so many features from a touch screen display screen, memorizing your favorite coffees, milk froth option and different brew strengths, the Breville Oracle delivers on all fronts.
