Upgrading our other sage machine

Great coffee machine. Quick to set up and easy to adjust.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good Cons: None
Male, 25 to 34, Couple from Lancashire

Excellent quality coffee

I have been very impressed with the quality of coffee I can produce with next to no effort or experience. Within 3 or 4 attempts I am producing cafe quality cappucino. I am dreadful at making patterns on the top of the latte, but they don't last long enough to admire before I have consumed them! Very pleased with my decision, highly recommended to anyone wishing to improve their coffee experience. I have previously had Bean to Cup machines from DeLonghi and this knocks them out of the park. Excellent next-day delivery from AO with timed, trackable delivery. Meant I was ready to set it up immediately and get my caffeine fix.

Pros: Auto-start, Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good
Male, 35 to 44, Small Family from St. Helens


What can I say. This machine is fantastic. Once you get over the cost it is an investment that makes you feel good. That fresh smell of coffee in the morning is just out of this world. I would highly recommend this

Pros: Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money Cons: Expensive

Male, Over 65, Couple from Gloucestershire

Good coffee but at a very high price

This machine does produce a very good cup of coffee. The grinder is quiet and adjustable, though it has a major flaw: it continues to operate even when there are no beans left in the hopper. The only ways to stop it are to add beans or presumably switch off the machine altogether. This seems a significant design fault. The quantity of coffee beans used is not adjustable, though pretty much everything else to do with the extraction and milk conditioning is. The output from this machine is very good and can be refined using the reasonably straightforward menus. The real question for prospective purchasers is how much do you want to spend on a large well designed, though not especially well finished (notably the drip tray cover which seems flimsy) product with which to make a cup of coffee. If you enjoy the challenge of fine tuning and place a high value on appearance then this may be for you. If you just want a good cup of coffee, I am sure there are ways to achieve that and still have several hundred pounds in your account.

Pros: Looks good, Quiet Cons: Complicated, Expensive

Coffee Bliss

The Oracle replaced my 20year old Gaggia Classic espresso machine. The difference in taste of the coffee from the two machines was instantly noticeable. The Oracle produced a far superior coffee with subtle flavours and no harshness. The cappuccino produced is as good as that obtained from a specialist coffee house. Although the machine is expensive, I am pleased with the end result.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality Cons: Expensive, Noisy

Really awesome!!!

The Oracle is the best machine I have had so far. I love the Oracle's grinding and tamping system; so easy and convenient to use, no more wasted coffee and improper tampering. The Oracle is very easy to keep clean. The Oracle has dual boilers, espresso and milk can be prepared at the same time. Too many nice features to talk The duel boilers are great and make multitasking easy. The foaming wand it quality and can produce great foam. The grinder and tamper are great and nice to have on the machine itself. The reservoir is big and can handle just over a weeks worth of espressos for 2. It looks great and you feel like you get the value for the money. It's easy to clean and maintain. . Overall, great machine. I love it!!!!

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money Cons: None
