Quite possibly THE BEST espresso machine experience EVER!

  • Summary: I've had my Ascaso Dream since 2007. Last espresso machine I had quit at 3 years and couldn't be fixed. I found this one on sale at a local coffee shop and couldn't pass it up for the price. I have to say I look forward to getting up every morning because of this machine. I even named her. My temp gauge quit and had to replace a t-stat just this month, after nearly 5 years of excellent service every day.

Great machine -maybe not for beginers.

  • Summary: Great machine. Looks great & makes great shots. It takes some time to get things right. Grind, & tamp make a big difference in the taste. Give it some time & try different things & eventually you'll get it right. I have had the machine for 6 months or so & use it once every morning. No issues so far.

great espresso machine.

  • Summary: I have two people in my home that use this machine, we both love it. The pressure that the machine produces is more than the Frances Frances I had before. But they are built almost the same. I know because I have torn into the guts of them for minor repairs. Quality built for sure... I like the frother, it works very well. I like the versatility of single and double shot ability. The cast aluminum body is easy to keep clean.

Ascaso Dream Espresso Machine

splintofewnious, Ebay

  • Summary: Anaviscal hit it right on with the light/meter system, and I would echo Crviolins60ed about it just not making coffee hot enough! I have owned this machine for over two years, and it is a solid buy. Aside from what the other two did mention, just like most other entry level espresso machines, it is a single boiler unit.

Ascaso Espresso machine

crviolins60ed, Ebay
2 July 2008
  • Summary: I have owned and operated an espresso machine for 34 years, first living in Italy and then the States. The Ascaso makes a fine espresso though suffers from the same fate as most other machines. The machine does NOT make the espresso hot enough, even when the machine is left on for a long period of time. Besides this,I am happy with the results.
