Great machine. Rubbish instructions and Sage support


Once this machine is up and running the coffee is great. But be warned, to get it to do anything, it has to reach its operating temperature of 93C - and to do this the steam lever has to be horizontal. The manual doesn't say this until much too late,...

Coffee Taste


This produces the most consistently superior coffee every time. The preset settings will set the benchmark, but it also allows you to custom everything to our personal preferences. Thank Sage and Mr Blumenthal.

Great looking machine and great coffee. Has lots of options for adjusting amount of water, coffee, froth, etc but find that we mainly stick to the "normal" version.

Excellent Espresso


The closest a domestic espresso maker has got to a commercial machine. The easy of use makes it virtually impossible to make a bad cup of coffee. The manual option allows for flexibility whilst the auto programme can do everything to produce an...

Fabulous Coffee


The Oracle makes the best coffee which you can fine tune to exactly suit your own taste. The machine is well made and the instruction manual is very good. Very much recommend that anyone buying this machine organises the "white glove" visit as they...

Fantastic machine for coffee lovers!


Can't recommend this machine more highly. It is expensive but the build quality is great and it is easy to use once you get the hang of it. The quality of the coffee is exceptional. Definitely as good as a barista machine and easy to use. Having used...

Best Coffee Ever


The title sums up, with quality beans, you'll soon realise just how much of a poor coffee some famous high street chains serve. The milk frother is excellent, it really makes a perfect frothy cappuccino or a nice creamy latte. The downside. You'll use...

Sage Oracle


Despite owning other bean to cup coffee machines, I was never completely satisfied with the taste of my coffee. At last I have found the machine to give what I consider to be the perfect coffee, The Sage Oracle. The after sales service was superb and...

Great all round machine


A great all in one bean to cup machine. Everything is variable so you can adjust to suit your taste, whether it's the milk texturing or the coarseness of bean grinding. A couple of niggles - the water container is in the back of the machine - which is...
