Features we love

Be your own barista

Café-quality drinks are never far away thanks to Sage’s Auto Grind and Tamp feature. The fully-integrated conical burr grinder automatically grinds your beans, disperses exactly the right amount of coffee (about 22 grams) into the portafilter and then expertly tamps it to ensure you get the best possible flavour extraction. This gives you all of the benefits of a manual espresso without the hard work.

Get the best out of your beans

The trick to a beautifully crafted coffee doesn’t end with the bean. Utilising dual stainless steel boilers and digital temperature controls (also known as PID), your water is brought to precisely the right temperature and pressure. This helps to ensure that all the flavours are drawn out evenly, making for a wonderfully balanced cup of coffee.

Add that perfect finishing touch

If you’re a fan of white coffees, Sage’s Micro-Foam Milk Texturing can help you create a café-quality crema at home. The unique self-cleaning wand uses a dedicated boiler and features adjustable temperature controls to help you get that perfect consistency every time. You can even get creative in the kitchen and try your hand at some beautiful latte art to really impress your guests.

As strong as you like it

Whether it’s a punchy espresso to kick-start your morning or a delicate cappuccino in the evening with friends, you can decide exactly how strong you want your blend. It’s super-simple to adjust the potency of your coffee using the button controls. Choose between one shot, two shots or manually control it yourself for the perfect dose every time.

Your coffee made your way

The convenient LCD screen displays all the information you need to craft your perfect cup of coffee, including whether you’ve selected a single or a double shot and how fine or coarse your grinds. This not only makes it easy to remember the settings for next time, but gives you the freedom to tweak them and find your ideal combination.

Love It. Bit pricey but IMHO worth it.

I have been tempted by this coffee machine for a while and wondered if I could justify the cost. I took the plunge and have to say that it is a very capable machine with really good styling. It is very well made and seems real good quality. Although some features are preset and automatic, there are many of them that can be tailored to your requirements should you wish (such things as shot volume, temperature, tamp pressure etc.). Only downside I can think of is it is quite expensive but if you can justify the cost then I think it's a great coffee maker.

Sage Oracle - Coffee Perfection

Wow, amazing coffee machine. So easy to set up, use and makes a perfect cuppa every time. Would I recommend it, absolutely, would I recommend you buy it from AO, absolutely. A winning combination for any customer.

Sage oracle

Great delivery time Great product Really enjoying the coffee!!

Best coffee I have ever had

Amazing machine. Very sturdy and easy to use. Good manual with loads of tips and tricks to get just the coffee you like. This is the most expensive coffee machine I have had and it’s worth every penny so far. Well designed and stunning to look at, love it.

Sage The Oracle

Great coffee machine providing semi automatic functions. Easily programmable to suit your own taste with a myriad of features. This is a physically large and sturdy machine, with a good volume of water storage, which is easy to fill from the front of the machine. The only downside for me is the coffee grinder is noisy.

Brilliant coffee machine

This coffee machine takes out a lot of the stress from making a lovely coffee, but still gives you a free range to get it just right for you.
