Looking for the ultimate bean to cup coffee machine? We have just what you’re looking for! Let’s take a look at two of the greats, both from the mighty Sage: the Oracle and the Oracle Touch.


The Oracle

This bean to cup coffee machine delivers café quality coffee without needing a barista. 


The Oracle stays true to a traditional manual espresso machine, using a portafilter instead of the usual piston system found in other bean-to-cup coffee machines. Combine this with automatic grinding, dosing, tamping and milk texturing, and you have the perfect espresso. 


Thanks to Sage automating the two most difficult parts of manual espresso, you can extract espresso and texture milk simultaneously. This means you can go from beans to a delicious latte in under a minute! The Oracle is easy to use and with the added bonus of it being much easier to maintain than a standard bean to cup machine, you really can’t go wrong. As Cracking Coffee founder Charlie said, ‘it’s the only bean to cup coffee machine I’ve seen that can genuinely make the same quality coffee as a manual machine.’ Impressive!



The Oracle Touch

And then we come to the Oracle Touch, what a machine!


As Sage say, this really is ‘the next generation fully automatic espresso machine.’ With the Oracle Touch, there’s automation at every stage of the coffee making process and it’s an absolute dream to use. The touch screen options simplify how to make your favourite barista standard coffee in three easy steps: grind, brew and milk. If you like a bit of customisation, you can simply adjust the coffee strength, milk texture or temperature to suit your taste and save it with your own unique name. You can create and save up to 8 personalised coffees, perfect for remembering how your family and friends take their coffee!


For a truly outstanding bean to cup coffee machine, the Oracle Touch is unbeatable in our opinion. Although it sits at a higher price point than the Oracle, once you use it you’ll quickly see it’s worth every penny.
