The Oracle™ BES980UK Coffee Machine - true café quality, without the barista.
The Oracle™ makes third-wave café quality coffee, comparable to what you’d get at your favourite café. The Oracle™ automatically grinds, doses, tamps and milk texturizes, simplifying the two most difficult parts of manual espresso. The integrated conical burr grinder automatically grinds, doses and tamps the right dose of 19-22 grams of coffee. Concocting an aromatic, full-bodied experience.
When extracting espresso precise water temperature is key. Too cold and the espresso will taste sour, too hot and the brew will taste ashy. PID technology within the Oracle™ ™ maintains the water temperature within +/- 1 °C of the selected temperature, creating a perfectly balanced brew.
9 Bar pressure is applied during the extraction process from the 15 Bar Italian pump. Delivering charming, caramel-coloured coffee. The steam wand, powered by a dedicated steam boiler, texturizes the milk and creates micro-foam capable of composing latté art. The Dual Boiler triple heat system allows for simultaneous extraction and steam. Two third-wave coffees, readily available in your home in 90 seconds.
