Breville has launched its Oracle Touch automatic espresso machine, which brews cafe quality coffee similar to that delivered by manual commercial espresso machines, according to the company.
The new unit is also said to deliver four elements needed to brew cafe quality coffee at home. They include dose amount of 19 to 22 grams to yield full flavor, precise water temperature control throughout extraction, 9 Bar water pressure and sufficient steam pressure to produce micro-foam that creates velvety milk texture.
The Oracle Touch allows users to swipe and select from a full menu of classic café favorites— espresso, Americano, latte, flat white, or cappuccino— and the option to customize them based on taste preferences. Options include grind size, extraction time, milk temperature and milk texture. Up to eight personalized settings with a unique name and picture can be saved for future use.
“The Oracle Touch is redefining the way consumers prepare and enjoy premium coffee in the comfort of their homes,” said Phil McKnight, global beverage business manager, Breville. “This machine was designed with brewing true café quality coffee in mind while also simplifying the steps of traditional one-touch automatics.”
The Oracle Touch, with a MAP of $2,499, is available at Williams Sonoma, Sur La Table, Bed Bath & Beyond, Seattle Coffee Gear and other premium retailers.
