Navigating through the menu is user-friendly and easy to understand. Users can choose a pre-programmed beverage, or make beverages that taste differently.

Additional hardware

Let’s write a few words about grinders and milk containers.

While Breville Oracle Touch has both – an authentic portafilter and milk tank, Jura on the other hand doesn’t have any of those two. Some people consider this as a flaw, some don’t. In our opinion, Jura E8 is a fully automatic coffee machine exactly because it doesn’t have a portafilter, and moreover — milk tank can be bought separately.

Product settings and their positions on the screen can be adapted in line with personal preferences and product names can be displayed or hidden. Not so many coffee machines in the world have these options and features.

Breville Oracle Touch gives you your own barista. It has a fully-integrated hardened precision conical burr grinder that automatically grinds, doses, and tamps 22 grams of coffee straight into the 58mm professional-style portafilter.

For the best coffee aroma, Breville uses a low-pressure pre-infusion followed by 9 bar extraction process delivered via strong 15-bar Italian-made pump.

Price comparison

While talking about the price, we must say that Jura E8 is more expensive than Breville Oracle Touch. In our own opinion, the higher price comes with the additional features it delivers. Jura E8 delivers more programmable options, and it gives a fully automated coffee-making machine. Furthermore, Jura E8 has 9 levels of coffee strength, 3 levels of hot water temperature, and 2 levels of coffee brewing temperature.

On the other hand, if you’re on a budget, Breville Oracle Touch is a great coffee-making machine. It is less expensive, and still, it makes great coffee whenever you want it.
