How it works


Experience the authentic café-quality coffee made using the Breville "the Oracle Touch" Espresso Machine. A breeze to use, this machine comes with a dual boiler heating system and a touchscreen display that enables you to simply swipe and select the coffee you would like to drink. It also lets you create your own coffee by adjusting the coffee strength, milk texture, and temperature according to your taste.

Key Features

  • Thanks to its touch screen operation, you'll be able to quickly make a café quality coffee in the comfort of your own home.
  • It offers total automation, enabling you to simply swipe and select to have your espresso, long black, latté, flat white, or cappuccino.
  • The Oracle Touch utilises a conical burr grinder that automatically doses, grinds, and tamps up to 22 grams of coffee.
  • Incorporates digital temperature control (PID) technology which effectively keeps the temperature at its best range.
  • Combines dual stainless-steel boilers and heated group head for precise temperature.
  • The Over Pressure Valve (OPV) helps restrict the maximum pressure during the extraction so that you won't get bitter flavours in the coffee shot.
  • For a consistent extraction, it employs a true low-pressure pre-infusion that gently boosts the pressure and expands the grinds.
  • Includes a steam wand to effectively texture the milk, providing rich, silky micro-foam that improves your coffee's flavour. This steam wand also cleans itself, making it easy to maintain.
  • Delivering convenient operations, it enables you to create, name, and save up to eight personalised coffees.
  • Equips handy settings such as Adjustable Grind Control, Programmable Milk Temperature and Texture, One or Two Shot options, and Hot Water only.
  • Conveniently use the versatile Hot Water button for pre-heating cups, rinsing the milk jug, preparing tea, or adding more water to your coffee.
  • To help easily make a delectable hot beverage, it offers Dual Boiler Heating System and automatic Milk Temperature readings from 45-degrees to 75-degrees.

Breville "the Oracle Touch" Espresso Machine - Stainless Steel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 582.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes great espresso until it breaks I bought this machine in October 2019 after having many years of similarly priced super-automatics that would invariably get fussy and break after about 3 years of service. So, trying to up my coffee game I went with this machine which is easy to use and made really good espresso for the first 10 months we had it. Then it started not making such nice cups, of espresso, and then it started leaking water out of the bottom of the case. Luckily it is still under warranty which I am dealing with currently, but for the premium price of this product, I would have expected premium build, premium performance and premium service, which I did not get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coffee and great customer support I have had my Breville Oracle Touch for about 2 years. These are complicated machines and will on occasion break down. Mine quit delivering hot water for Americano coffees after about a year (still under warranty). Unlike other reviews, I simply called Breville America and explained the problem. They tried a couple of things over the phone but none worked. Breville immediately shipped a return box with all the protection needed for the machine. The return box arrived in less than 3 days. I packed the machine as instructed and returned it with postage paid by Breville. My machine came back in less than 2 weeks and has worked flawlessly since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than your local Cafe Had this expensive machine for a week. Slight learning curve to master the controls and proper settings, but the quality of the coffee is amazing. I've owned other machines this is the best. Pros- looks amazing, auto on/off function for different times and days of week, large water tank, love the semi auto grind, tap then transfer for extraction -you feel like a barista, dual boilers means you can extract and froth milk at the same time, milk froth best I've ever seen, pretty much cafe quality microbubbles, led downlights look cool. Colour lcd display looks neat, all settings can be pretty much changed from here. Best coffee you will have, if it isn't then you are using old or cheap beans, or can't read an instruction manual. Cons-price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing and deliciousness-ness-ness!! Worth every penny! It makes the perfect espresso shot every single time and froths the milk perfectly to make beautiful latte art which I finally learned how to do. I have used the barista express before but this one is more hands-free and makes the perfect latte faster and I'm not wasting any beans from the times when I didn't make the perfect shot with my barista express. I just love how this machine grinds and tamps the espresso shop for you making the perfect shot every single time. If you are a daily latte drinker then it will eventually pay for itself. It is so delicious and fun to make for friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and perfect machine bought this a couple of months ago and i have never enjoyed using a machine so much in my life. have owned a couple of full automatic machines and get nothing but luke warm coffee and a capuccino that isn't really a capuccino this machine excels in making coffee the way it should be made perfect every time. The milk frother is amazing again perfect every time. Once you have set the machine to where you want it you have barista style coffee every day with out the cost. Whilst expensive to purchase it is well worth the money and so easy to use. My brother even went out and bought one as he saw ours and fell in love. Definitely a winner for me after a couple of failures in buying a jura and a delonghi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oracle Touch Review We purchased this coffee machine just before Mothers Day. it its an excellent machine and although expensive has many good traits. We had some issues getting the machine registered due to issues with the receipt and copying it. The machine is very consistent and quality is high. Still working through the coffee beans which were part of the sale. Will purchase them locally from a recommended retailer when sale offer is completed. Machine is very easy to use and cleaning is a breeze. Would thoroughly recommend this unit to prospective buyers. Note that we haven't had a coffee machine before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Machine I have had the Oracle Touch for nearly 2 years. Between my wife's Americano's and my Latte's, it is used a minimum of 3 times per day during the week, up to 5 times a day on the weekends. Every week since we've owned it. Not one single issue. Yes, the water filters are expensive and hard to find but when you spend this kind of money on an espresso machine, you shouldn't be too surprised at the upkeep cost. I clean the brew head after every use (quick 2-second run of the water), backflush the head every few days (takes 20 seconds) and thoroughly clean every weekend. Again, not a single issue yet. If you like great espresso-based drinks and don't mind the initial cost, you can not go wrong with the Oracle Touch. If mine ever breaks, I won't even do the research for a different model, I'll buy this again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding machine This is an outstanding machine. It is fully automated but it still enables you to participate in the magic of coffee making. The automatic grinding and tapping works brilliantly, The milk brother is par excellence. Cleaning is minimal (which is NOT true of Jura machines). The only variable is the coffee bean you use - because each different type must be ground to a different coarseness to provide the optimal flow of water through it to achieve the best espresso. So one must expect to experiment with the precise coarseness/fineness of powder that you require to produce the espresso in the recommend time. It's an art - i.e. trial and error. But THAT is the true joy of the machine. It takes but one cup to realise that this is the best machine on the market.
