    Consistent coffee, easier to use. Not really worth the price, 17 Dec. 2016

    I had read only good things about the Breville Oracle (it’s called Sage in the UK) and as I was getting good results with my Stand-alone Sage Grinder and De Longhi Espresso machine,I really expected this to be incredible. It cost x 4 times the cost of that grinder and espresso machine, so is the coffee x4 better? No, it isn’t, so don’t expect too much and you will be fine.
    I’ve used this for 3 months now and there is much I like about it:
    1. It looks really nice, is well constructed and I don’t find the plate flimsy like many others here have mentioned
    2. The Auto tamp is great, however,I was getting really consistent tamps with a calibrated tamper from Espro, so its no big deal.
    3. The Auto grind and dosing is very convenient, but uses too much coffee
    4. The Water level indicator and the LCD information display that tells you when the tank is empty is just fantastic
    5. The hidden wheels and supply box : design is A+
    6. Dual Boiler with PID for consistent temperature and simultaneous espresso and steam for lattes
    7. Integrated grinder saves space, and the coffee storage is enough for one 250g pack. This will last 4-5 days at the most, with two uses per day,as this just eats beans, so you don’t have to worry about heat and losing bean freshness

    But, tell me, how is the &&**%^ coffee?!
    Well, that depends on the beans, with fresh roast beans, the espresso is excellent. Much better than Starbucks and Costas, and good espresso translates to great cappuccinos and lattes. It’s a lot like a computer: Garbage in Garbage out
    The crema is only 1-2mm, I tried really fresh beans too, but the crema thickness isn’t as good as you get in nespresso machines, however the taste of the coffee is really good, if you use fresh beans
    You only have to make adjustments on the grind size, as the tamp and the temperature are all adjusted just right
    The dual boilers are great to have, but I never minded waiting a bit with single boilers

    Now, to the downsides:
    1. The coffee dosing is too much: 22 g of coffee each time means you finish a 250g bag in 11-12 extractions, thats 3-4 days for us! Maybe 5-6 days ,without guests.
    2. You always have to use 22g, even if you select a single cup, it still grinds 22 g, so if you don’t use it as two shots, you are wasting even more coffee
    3. The auto steam wand and auto purge are really convenient, but you can’t make decent latte art with it. I tried. Manual doesn’t work also
    My cheap 120 quid Delonghi, with its under powered thermoblock (not even a single boiler here) gave me better “art”, so if you want to make latte art, steer clear. I guess its because of the high tech design, thick stubby want with an in built thermometer and all, but it is great for plain cappuccinos, not for art.
    granted, I know the knob can switch from latte to cappuccino, but it doesn’t create the right velvet microfoam I need for art
    4. It costs way too much:
    Now in the coffee world,cost is a very relative term. You can spend a 1000$ on a grinder very easily. So when you look at what you are getting, great design, dual boilers, PID, Auto tamp, Auto purge, built in grinder, it isn’t all that overpriced.
    What I mean is , you can get similar results for a lot less, if you are willing to learn a little.Here you are paying for the integration, the technology , the convenience and the quality of the finish.

    Bottom-line:

    If you want to make latte art and save money on the machine and also on beans: go for a Barista express or another grinder -machine combo instead.

    If you want convenience and great coffee, if money is no object, and you don’t mind using 22 g of beans per session (one button press), then by all means, this is great!

    I’m extremely happy with the machine. Looks great and works great – I’m sure Jonathan Ive has one.

    My coffee is now just as good (if not better) as the one I used to get from my local caffe (supposed to be ‘best in London’). Just make sure you do what they ask for and you will be fine with default settings. Just get your coffee fresh (< 2 weeks after roasting) and use cold milk in a cold jug. It’s not hard at all. I’m sure as I get better at tinkering with various settings my coffee will be even better!

    So far has been absolutely spot on. Perfect coffee every time. But you absolutely have to use freshly roasted beans! Maintenance has been minimal so far, and coffee consistency has been good, but the real test is how well these machines work a few years down the line of course…
