Immerse yourself in a coffee experience like no other with the Sage By Heston Blumenthal BES980UK The Oracle™ espresso machine. Until now you have had to choose between manual or automatic espresso, but not anymore. This machine is built to provide you with years of reliable service and top quality coffee for you to enjoy. Automatic manual This machine cleverly brings true Italian coffee shop quality to your home without the barista. The Oracle™ has automatic grinding, dosing, tamping and milk texturing, automating the two most difficult parts of manual espresso. Dual stainless steel boiler triple heat system The Oracle™ has a dedicated espresso boiler with PID technology to extract the espresso shot to within +/- 1°C of the selected temperature. It also has a dedicated steam boiler to deliver instant and continuous steam on demand. You can extract espresso and texture milk simultaneously allowing you to capture the delicate aromatics of the espresso in your coffee by having the espresso and milk ready at the same time. Over Pressure Valve This commercial feature limits the maximum pressure throughout extraction, helping to prevent bitter flavours in the shot. It also has true low pressure pre-infusion, which gradually increases the pressure to gently expand the grinds for an even extraction. The Oracle™ provides the taste benefits of a manual with the simplicity of an automatic.
