Sage The Oracle Espresso Coffee Machine - Black
For coffee shop-quality coffee without the queuing, consult The Oracle.
- Automatic grinding and tamping
- Programmable low pressure pre-infusion for a balanced extraction
- Automatic milk texturing. Triple Heat System
- Also features an over pressure valve - this commercial feature limits the maximum pressure throughout the extraction, helping to prevent bitter flavours in the shot
In a world first, it automates several of the processes that are usually done manually to make it easy for you to achieve coffee perfection every time. It grinds, doses and tamps your beans automatically before getting to work on making your brew.
At its heart is the dual stainless steel boiler triple heat system. It has a dedicated espresso boiler which uses PID technology for accurate temperature control to within 1°C, and a steam boiler to deliver instant and continuous steam. Espresso is extracted and milk is textured simultaneously so that both are ready at the same time and the delicate aromatics are captured and preserved for optimum results
Usually only found on commercial machines, The Oracle also features an Over Pressure Valve, a function that limits pressure during extraction to ensure there are no bitter flavours. It also has true low pressure pre-infusion to ensure the grinds expand gently for a smoother taste.
And if it's all sounding a bit technical and scary, the main thing to remember is that it makes superlative coffee. Automatically.
If you're thinking that this sounds like the coffee machine for you, but you're not sure if it's a little too technical, Sage offers a White Glove Service to ensure that you're not left scratching your head. This means that they'll send one of their coffee experts to your home to show you exactly how to get the best from your new Oracle right from the start.
The 4 Key Elements of True Café Quality Coffee
1. Dose - 19-22 g dose for full flavour
Have you ever wondered why your home-made coffee never seems to taste as great as a café bought one? That’s because most other automatic machines only dose 11-13 g of ground coffee, below what’s needed to create that rich, full-bodied taste you get out of bed for
2. Temperature - Precise PID temperature control
The difference between an ashy or balanced tasting espresso can be as little as 1°C. The Oracle uses digital temperature control (PID) technology which detects and minimises any fluctuation during extraction, ensuring the temperature is kept at its optimum range, every time.
3. Pressure - Low pressure pre-infusion and 9 bar extraction pressure
Creating a golden honey crema in your coffee relies on the right pressure at the right time. The Oracle uses low pressure, pre-infusion to evenly soak and expand the ground coffee, delivering a sweet and creamy extraction.
4. Steam - Automatically steaming milk to a silky micro-foam texture
To get that velvety texture in your milk you need the right steam pressure to draw in the air and create thousands of tiny bubbles. That’s why we created the automatic steam wand for the Oracle, that turns your milk into a silky smooth micro-foam, essential for latte art.
