Breville Oracle Touch: User Manual

In this manual, you should find everything you need to operate and maintain your dual-boiler Breville espresso machine.

Please read carefully before operating your dual boiler espresso machine. For a list of specifications, included accessories, and other details on the Breville Oracle Touch, check out our website. For setup information, please see the setup guide. Check out the manufacturer's manual for setup and operation.

Getting Started: 

After reading through the Breville Oracle Touch Setup Guide, test your water. Espresso machines have specific requirements when it comes to water. There are two primary considerations: filtration and hardness. Please carefully read about the importance of water in espresso to understand how water affects your espresso machine. For further learning, check out Coffee School's Water 101

Note: It's essential to test your water, filter, and soften to obtain 35-85 ppm to avoid scale and damage to your machine. RO (reverse osmosis) or distilled water does not contain enough mineral content and could cause issues to your machine. The SCA Water for Brewing Standards explains what's needed to obtain water that's suitable for your machine and coffee.
