Brilliant Machine!!

 

I bought this coffee machine as I have up until now been using Gaggia machines. I have spent a fortune on first the Classic and when that failed just after the guarantee had run out, I tried the Gaggia Baby. After a time the machine yet again began to...

Great looking machine, good espresso

 

This machine looks good, is very robust and makes a good espresso. What more could you want? Well, there is probably no such thing as the perfect domestic espresso machine so like all of them it has pluses and minuses.The most noticeable feature of the...

Looks great but unfortunately didn't deliver

 

We received this coffee machine as a wedding gift but unfortunately had to return it twice. Such a shame as it looks amazing. The first one didn't work at all i.e. there was no water flow. Contacted Ascaso customer services who were unable to discuss...

Lovely coffee

CoffeeGeek - Ascaso Dream Espresso - Cameron Brown's Review

 

This is my first "real" espresso machine, and I am not an expert by any means. I am graduating from a little Krups steam box that gave up the ghost. My goals were: Great espresso, fits in my limited counter space, looks cool (I'm fussy about appearance...

Looks great, construction feels solid, fast to heat up and use in the morning

A bit tricky to get used to and the user manual is *terrible*, placement of steam valve control is a bit awkward. Backflush gasket (shown in manual) was missing from my box
