Overview

Add a splash of Spanish style to your kitchen with the Ascaso Dream Espresso Machine. Manufactured and lovingly polished by hand in Barcelona, each machine sports a unique finish unheard of on a machine of this stature. Its adorable proportions pack in a lot of functionality too, with a thermoblock-integrated group design, 5 different portafilter baskets and both regular and panarello steam tips. Who says you can't have cafe quality espresso at home?

Features and Functionality of the Ascaso Dream Up Espresso Machine - Polished Aluminum - Open Box

  • Sleek Design - A compact, solid aluminum case offers bold lines that call to mind vintage consumer goods.
  • Quick Thermoblock - An outsized thermoblock offers quality heat retention and quick steps up or down to steam temp.
  • Accessories Abound - Ascaso includes everything you need to brew including a fantastic tamper, an optional panarello steam tip and both pressurized and nonpressurized (and ESE Pod) baskets.
  • Important Improvements - New to the V3, ESE pods now fit in their own (included) portafilter basket! No adapters or special parts needed.
  • 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.
