Owning the Breville BES980XL Oracle

The Breville Oracle BES980XL breaks new ground as a bridge between manual and automatic espresso machines. This dual boiler espresso machine features a built-in grinder and tamping system, programmable shot volumes, automatic rinsing and descaling options, milk frothing controls, PID temperature control, adjustable grind settings, and more. With the Oracle you get nothing less than an all-in-one home espresso solution that combines innovative features with modern technology. One of the key advantages to the Oracle is the built-in grinder. The grinder can be adjusted between 40 different fineness settings with a locking mechanism that allows you to grind directly into your portafilter. Based on your preferences you can adjust the total dosage of coffee ground to customize your shots. The Oracle's grinder is also equipped with an adjustable automatic tamping system that will tamp and level off your coffee for you to keep extraction. The bean hopper on the Oracle holds up to 8 oz of whole bean coffee. The hopper can be completely removed and features a bean stopper, allowing you to take it off even when there are still beans inside.

The Oracle brews and steams using two separate boilers to ensure temperature stability and steam pressure. This also means that you'll be able to brew and steam simultaneously. As an automatic machine, the Oracle has dedicated brew buttons for both single and double shots as well as Americanos and hot water. The buttons for all three drinks can be programmed to dispense at a volume of your choosing allowing you to recreate custom drinks with just a push. Located on the front of the machine, the main LCD displays the temperature of the boiler as monitored by the Oracle's PID controller and is accurate within 2 degrees. Using the PID, temperature can be programmed between 190°-205°F. When you begin brewing the PID transitions into a shot timer that counts up from when the brew button is engaged. The steam wand on the Oracle is truly amazing. Fitted with a powerful 4-hole tip and a temperature probe, you can program the machine to automatically texture your milk on a gradient between a latte and a cappuccino allowing you to make the drinks you want with just a flip of a switch. Alternatively, the Oracle also allows for completely manual frothing so you can hone your barista skills in the comfort of your kitchen. Located beneath the drip tray the Oracle features a drop down swivel foot that can lowered to lift the machine off of your counter making it easy to slide and rotate. Depending on your setup, excess cord can be stored in the back of the machine to keep you counter free of clutter. The Breville Oracle comes packaged with the following accessories: -Mini Knock Box -58mm Stainless Steel Portafilter -10oz Stainless Steel Double Walled Travel Mug (lid included) -16oz Stainless Steel Frothing Pitcher -Replacement Steam Tip and Gasket -Cleaning Kit -Water Hardness Test Strip -Water Filter Holder and Water Filters.
