Hi all, my first post on this forum having read a ton of useful stuff in the last couple of weeks. My my old bean to cup delonghi died a fortnight ago and, looking for something better, I stumbled across the Oracle. It looked ideal as a way of getting better coffee without necessarily giving up all the convenience of the old machine. Unfortunately I've been really struggling with it! I just don't seem to be able to get any consistency out of it... Initially when pulling shots by the standard time settings I was getting really sour, unpleasant coffee. I was trying ancoats warehouse
Hi, Trying to set up the volumetric output on the SDB so that the wife can sort herself out a coffee without having to get the scales out etc. etc. However, something doesn't quite seem to be right. I've gone in to Advanced Menu (when machine off pressing 1 cup and then power button) then cycled to volumetric control and changed from SEc to FLo. I've then programmed the 1 cup button by accessing normal menu and selecting SHOT VOL on 1 cup and 'recording' a 30g extraction. However when I try and repeat this with same grind, bean, tamp it has a wild variability, been as low at
For sale: £3,500. In perfect working order. It was bought by me brand new 3 years ago and it has been used at home making, on average, 10 drinks per week. My home water is run through a softener.

I am putting my white Astoria Greta SAE up for sale as my next upgrade is almost on the way. Main features include: - Heat-exchanger machine - Vibrating pump with 4L tank - Commercial Astoria group including thermo-syphon unit with pre-infusion - Raised groups with flap rack - Backlit 4 coffee doses programmable - Boiler with automatic loading - Pressure switch for boiler temperature control - Boiler pressure gauge - Water tap - Steam tap - Work top lighting - Varnished steel/plastic body - Dimensions: 511H x 395 W x 546D - White side panels Furthermore, here is Bella Barista's introduction video: I bought it second-hand from an official UK Astoria distributor and I was told it was only lightly used for six months beforehand regardless the nameplate stating 2017 as year of manufacture. It has got some light scratches but otherwise it is in a nice condition. I changed the gasket and shower screen upon purchase. It has been used for 2-4 shots a day, I take the shower screen and screen holder off every day, clean them and backflush with water afterwards. I also backflush with pulycaff weekly and use Osmio Zero water only, so scale should not be a problem. As for future maintenance, I can give you the contact details of the distributor I bought it from but Bella Barista is also selling it (at RRP £1,995) so they must be able to service it or send you spare parts as well if ever needed. It functions perfectly, I have not had any problems with it whatsoever. It is equipped with the same commercial components as other Astoria machines with 2- or 3 groups. The volumetric buttons make it very convenient for small-scale catering use or for family members/ friends who just want a quick coffee without too much fuss. They are reliable enough for me not to use any scales after the initial dialling-in. Steaming power also seems very good to me although I only drink espresso and have never done any kind of latte art. The traditional Italian-bar-machine look along with the LED lighting really makes it a standout ornament in the kitchen! It comes with angled single- and double portafilters, however, the distributor offers bottomless as well. The OPV is fully adjustable. It is overall a brilliant machine and potentially a great option for anyone looking for an HX upgrade for home or even for small-scale catering use. As far as I know there is an adapter kit available to connect to water supply system if needed. Collection preferred in Bath but I am willing to meet in a reasonable distance if current COVID regulations allow for it. If you have any questions, please let me know, Adam
