Sage oracle touch

    Have been looking at this machine for a while and its reduced at the moment. I have a tassimo but am trying to get away from the pods. Have also had a nespresso lattissma pro but the temp of the drinks was always on cool side. Mainly looking for a machine that will do lattes and that is really ease to use. Anybody have any experience of this machine, if it’s worth it or am I just paying for the name?

    Thanks

    Sage are also doing a free barista accessory pack on a few of their higher end models incl the oracle touch: https://sage-promotions.com/en/customer-apply-for-promotion/?country_promotion=1

    If you are just looking for an upgrade from pods, there are cheaper starting points imo, maybe the sage barista express? There is a separate thread on it with a lot of feedback and advice.

    Thanks for the advice caviardreams. If it was just myself I’d prob go with the barista express. However there is different levels of patience in the house so that’s why I was looking at a machine that is fully automatic and really easy to use. A friend got the delonghi dinamica at Xmas and I wasn’t that impressed. Now it may have been the beans or the setting may not have been correct as it was only out of the box a few hours. That’s why i was thinking about the oracle I’d prefer to spend a bit more and have everyone be able to use it.

    This is a good brand, too, way better than De Longhi. https://www.lidl.ie/p/home-living/zanussi-espresso-maker/p14300

    Not sure if it's still available nor if it'd be any good to you.

    I think I know the answer, but what is the best time or place to buy an oracle touch? I think last Black Friday there were some decent discounts?

    another option may be to keep an eye on the used, like new or very good categories across amazon.co.uk / .de / .it / .fr sites

    you could come across some very good pricing there, although the sage products may not appear too often
