Video Crew Review: Ascaso Dream UP
This entry was posted on July 19, 2010.
Recently re-engineered to include a three-way solenoid/brew pressure release valve, Ascaso's Dream UP is just as aesthetically fetching as its ancestors and functions pretty much the same. It comes with a nice aluminum tamper (unlike the plastic style included with many other machines) and two different steam wand tips that you can choose from -- a panarello (which incorporates air and steam for you) or a three-hole traditional steam tip (which requires a little more skill and allows you to stretch the milk).
Gail talks to us about the features, demonstrates the different wand tips and makes us a latte -- with absolutely no latte art to speak of. :)
