Ascaso has a reputation within the coffee community for designing machines with long lasting components using the finest materials. Professional performance and durability are the Ascaso rule. When you combine the company’s reputation for excellence with their passion for fine design, you get a beautiful espresso machine or coffee grinder that will last you for years and years.
The Ascaso factory was founded in a Barcelona, Spain in 1962 by Jesus Ascaso. It began as a supplier for other espresso machine companies, offering high quality parts at a lower price to popular Spanish espresso machine manufacturers like Gaggia. However, as the years passed and Mr. Ascaso’s supplier business thrived, the young Spanish entrepreneur decided to begin manufacturing espresso machines himself using the same high quality parts he had been supplying to other companies.
To this day the Ascaso Company supports two professional divisions: one that supplies parts and components for coffee machines, coffee grinders, and other small machinery and another that designs espresso machines and coffee grinders with extended high quality and range.
Ascaso espresso machines may be best known by their dream model which is available in a modern design and finish. Consumers can pick from colors like bright orange, deep red, and construction yellow. Not only do these fine machines prepare excellent espresso time after time, they add a modern look to any kitchen.
Another popular benefit of the Ascaso family machines is their environmentally friendly design. Each brass component that comes into contact with water or steam receives special treatment that dramatically reduces the lead and other metals transferred to beverages during brewing or down the drain during cleaning.
