Ascaso History

Over fifty years ago, Jesus Ascaso left his small hometown in the north of Spain to find his way in the world. Ascaso headed to Barcelona in the 1950's where he got caught up in the growing popularity of espresso coffee. At first he worked as a supplier of spare parts for espresso machines. Ascaso then took this knowledge in the 1960's and moved into production of espresso machine parts. Later he created his own espresso machine factory drawing on years of knowledge and experience in the world of coffee machines. He created a range of coffee machines and grinders suited for both homes and offices. Today machines are still proudly made in the Ascaso factory in Barcelona, Spain. Steeped in rich espresso history, Ascaso brand combines a love of retro style with serious coffee credentials to make a perfect cup.
