Overview

Affordable espresso doesn't have to cost you in style with the Ascaso Dream. This Love Red Open Box model comes ready to brew for any situation with dedicated pressurized, unpressurized, and pod baskets. It's also equipped with an auto-frothing panarello steam wand, so even an espresso novice can brew up milk drinks. The Dream offers more than just affordability and style, it also sports a quick-heat thermoblock design and a side-loading reservoir for quick refills.

Features and Functionality of the Ascaso Dream Espresso Machine - Kid Blue - Store Demo Unit

  • Smooth Design - Cut like a classic car, the Ascaso Dream stands out on kitchen counters.
  • Easy Thermoblock - Easy to use and quick-to-heat, a thermoblock offer solid performance in a compact case.
  • Accessories - With multiple basket styles and niceties like an included tamper, the Dream is easy to set-up and brew even for a beginner.
  • Resourceful Reservoir - The water reservoir pulls out sideways and can be refilled without removing from the machine.
Pros
  • Gorgeous - The curvy design and clean face looks great in any kitchen.
  • Analog Operation - A manual steam wand, toggle switches and an analog temperature gauge make the Dream a joy to use.
  • Tremendous Tamper - The included polished tamper is solid and has fantastic fit and finish. And, since the portafilter is a tad smaller than the average, this is a good thing.
Cons
  • Water Tank Woes - A water sensor or internal float design would be a welcome addition to the water tank.
  • Simplistic - Minimalist—for better or worse—design means your grind, tamp and technique must be on-point for good nonpressurized shots.
SCG Staff Says... There's something to be said about simplicity, and the Dream's retrofuturistic 1950s design—complete with analog toggles and a temperature gauge—pairs well with its no-frills operation.
How Does it Compare?

The V3's main claim to fame lies with its newly designed portafilter, which can now accept ESE pods without the need for a special adapter! Also, the thermoblock is now lined in stainless steel and the steam wand assembly sports a better sealing connection to help eliminate leaks and scale.

Tips and Tricks

Make sure to brace the base of the Dream while tightening in the portafilter.
