Do Not Buy this Machine

Richard Hoppe, Amazon
4 November 2012
  • Summary: This is an extremely complicated machine to use. Not only that, there is a tendency for the pressure to build up in the grouphead after the espresso extraction, causing the grounds to explode all over the place when removing the portafilter. It's an inexpensive machine, but it's a waste of money. By the way, I bought this from 1st-line Equipment online and was very unsatisfied with their customer service. I will never use them again.

  • Summary: This is a great machine at a reasonable price point. Solid internal parts that are very accessible, available online and easy to replace. With some practice it produces excellent espresso and milk based drinks.

It was returned under guarantee and the repair report stated that the pump had not been riveted in place correctly, six months later two of the pretty blue Led's stopped lighting up!

Make great coffee

  • Summary: After suffering a leaky Gaggia we bought this Ascaso to tide us over when it was being repaired for the second time. It is basic but simple to use and makes great coffee.

Mycket bra

uncle buck, Prisjakt
23 February 2014
  • Summary: Bra maskin, pålitlig och inte så dyr. Minuspost är att vattenmagasinet är lite svängt och det skulle kunna vara smidigare att fylla på vatten. Extra packning hade varit skönt att få med också.

Guter Kaffee aber doch einige Mängel

gp2121, Amazon
16 April 2010
  • Summary: Eines vorweg. Ich habe die Kaffeemaschine zum Werbepreis von 249 Euro gekauft. Das ist sie wert. Mehr würde ich jedoch nicht zahlen. Vorteile: Der Kaffee ist eins a, da gibt es nichts zu meckern. Nachteile: Ich habe die Maschine jetzt knapp 8 Monate und es gibt doch einige Mängel. Erstens: Der Einsatz für eine Person ist zu vergessen. Ich arbeite nur mit dem für zwei Personen, und da kann man dann gerade genug Kaffee für eine Person einfüllen.
