  • Ascaso Espresso Machines

    Hi there,

    I've been offered a very good deal on a Ascaso Espresso Machine. I haven't got a precise model number yet, but I'm assured it's a double-boiler.

    It looks something like this (see attachment).

    The internet tells me it's a Spanish brand, but I haven't really heard anything about them. Good? Bad? Reliable?

    google "Ascaso Steel duo" ..
    Double boiler... yes, but the steam boiler is a brass thermoblock so steam is not uber powerful !
    A fairly solid machine with all the essentials for brewing well. Brass brew boiler and group head, 58mm chromed brass PF, a bit like the Silvia with an extra thermoblock for steam. Steam boiler has separate controls, so if you only drink black, you can leave it off.
    Spares available from De Bartoli.
    Expensive when new, but should be cheap when pre owned.
