Sage SES990BSS The Oracle Touch Fully Automatic Espresso Machine : Products Outstanding Coffee & Built To Last

I bought this to replace my old office coffee machine; we buy good beans but the coffee produced by the old machine was detiorating and the all the moving (but fairly low-quality) parts made it prone to failure and a pain to clean. After having it repaired twice, i decided to go for something high-end with less failure-prone moving parts, which i hoped would be more reliable and produce better results. Everywhere but on amazon, this sage touch oracle machine received fantastic reviews but the small number (eight at the time of writing) of reviews on here were really quite poor other than one 5-star review. This worried me, but after further research, i decided to go ahead anyway and i have not been disappointed. In short, this machine produces outstanding coffee; all the coffee drinkers in the office love it and i would say it is clearly superior (with good beans obviously) to starbucks, costa, et al. The milk frother is superb and allows you to produce near barista-quality results (texture and taste). Clearly, at approaching £2k inc. Vat this is not a low-cost machine and only really suitable for high-income individuals who love good coffee and drink lots of it, but don’t want the fuss. However, for an office it is absolutely superb as it is easy to use, produces great results and is very well made.

Absolutely brilliant machine. The quality of the coffee is excellent and it is so easy to use. You cannot compare it to the fully automatic machines who constantly clean themselves. It even grinds and tampers the coffee for you and automatically cleans the steam spout. It is solidly made to the highest spec. It might cost a lot, but believe me, it is well worth itat the end of the day, it is the quality of the drinks that matter.

I bought my machine from somewhere else, as it wasn’t in stock on amazon yet. I’ve had it for 6 months now, and due to the stupidly high cost i naturally researched the life out of it. I was frustrated at the lack of reviews so always promised myself i’d write one. Given the experiences of others i thought it a good idea to do that. I had a gaggia classic with mdf grinder that worked well, but was too messy and became a chore to use. Coffee isn’t a hobby for me, it’s a drink, and i want it to be easy and taste great. For a while i moved to nespresso for ease of use and had the lattissima pro. Good machine, but nespresso is too weak. Bonus came in from work, and this was the resultthere are reviews around the web that say you cannot get the grind fine enough and even instructions on how to adjust the internal burrs to grind finer. If that’s the case for you, your machine is faulty.

This oracle touch is worthy of flagship status. I have previously had a jura z6 and a siemens s6, both of which were good machines but this oracle blows them both out of the water for almost like for like money. I’m going to mention the things that are important to me. 1) build quality, as soon as you unpack this machine, you are taken back by it’s solid construction, no cheap plastic here and it weighs accordingly. Everything from the coated stainless steel facia to the milk wand, from the touch screen to the hopper, it’s all very well put together. 2) drink, if you have ever thought your coffee machine does not product a latte or espresso hot enough, this machine will put that right. The temperature of the milk and the brew can be separately tuned with its dual boiler design. The shots are consistently excellent with no drop in flavour if you make one beverage after the other 3) design, it’s not fully automatic, however it’s 90% there and what i would say is, that is no bad thing. It just allows you to find tune the drinks just how you want them.
