The most emblematic coffee machine in our range for Home. It was designed by Marc Aranyó more than 15 years ago, but our Dream still remains a dream.

Without touching a line of its daring retro aesthetic silhouette and its world of colours, Dream has upgraded its technology to get the perfect cup at home. A machine built with the highest quality materials (aluminium, stainless steel, brass), and minimum use of plastic.

The PID version offers a totally professional performance: Ø 60mm filter holder externally adjustable OPV and an external PID display for temperature setting, adjustable pre-infusion, stand-by option and much more. A dream machine!

Ascaso Dream PID Design

High-quality materials and components

> The Dream coffee machine is manufactured in aluminium. After preliminary polishing, the machine is treated with a high-quality varnish (the same coating as used in Formula 1 and on boats), with a range of 15 colours and three finishes: Gloss, matte and hand-crafted (see colours).

As well as the wide range of colours, we also offer our mirror-polish finish, featuring an artisan-mechanical process that gives its own character to each piece.

Tam-tamper

> The Dream model (ground coffee/versatile) includes a Tam-tamper: Professional aluminium coffee tamper (57 mm) designed by Marc Aranyó.

Aluminium – Hand-polished

> This finish is achieved by polishing each part by hand, one by one. Any irregularities on the polished surface are the result of this laborious hand-crafted process that makes each piece unique.

Heat-resistant steam nozzle

> Stainless steel. Multidirectional 360°. Heat-resistant. Easy to clean.

Powerful steam/hot water

> The new aluminium + stainless steel group guarantees continuous, unlimited steam. The life of the piece is now much longer thanks to the fact that lime scale does not build up on the stainless steel circuit.

1.3-litre water reservoir

> Can be removed for easy maintenance, cleaning and visual access, allowing the user to quickly check the amount of water in the chamber. The reservoir can be filled with the coffee machine in operation.

Cup warmer

> Emulating professional coffee bar machines, the upper part features a surface that keeps cups warm, ensuring that coffee remains at its optimum temperature.

Wire tray

> As well as the decorative aspect, the wire tray keeps the base of the cup free of coffee residue. Easy to clean.

Stainless steel tray

> Easily removed for cleaning.

Metal switches

> The high quality of the machine makes it a pleasure to use. Emphasises the retro look.

 

Benefits of the Ascaso Coffee Machine

Ascaso made a big redesign of Ascaso Dream where it would still look adorable. With the swoopy, curvy cut of the machine makes it fantastic on countertop. It enables you to program two shot lengths while keeping the temperature more stable.

Most noteworthy, remove portafilter when purging the system back down from steam temp.Also, running the last few seconds of your purge through the group would help in cooling it down.

Technology

Thermoblock aluminium + stainless steel

  • Clean water. Here it is constantly renewed and clean for every coffee. The taste and smell of the coffee are unaffected. As the water does not stand in the boiler, being constantly re-heated, quality is not affected.
  • Thermal stability. Quality in cup. Thanks to its high capacity and internal pipe measuring over a metre long. Optimised with electronic temperature control.
  • 100% food-safe. AISI 316 stainless steel water circuit. No metal migration in water.
  • Less limescale build-up. Easy-to-clean stainless steel circuit reduces limescale build-up.
  • Steam. Unlimited steam supply. Constant pressure. No damage to the heating element caused by low water levels. Reliability and quality.

As well as the wide range of colours, we also offer our mirror-polish finish, featuring an artisan-mechanical process that gives its own character to each piece.

Fixed filter holder

(coffee pods only)
Our fixed filter-holder system features an exclusive patented design which allows ease of use and superb ESE coffee pod removal. The thermoblock also makes unlimited steam production possible.

ESE COFFEE PODS

(versatile)
This system allows the use of both ground coffee and ESE coffee pods. The thermoblock also makes unlimited steam production possible.

  • Coffee capsule (optional)
  • ESE coffee pods
  • Ground coffee

New solid hood

Coffee group is manufactured lead free brass.

 

Filter holders and professional filters

Following the Ascaso philosophy of transferring professional components from the espresso coffee world to the home, all our machines feature a nickel-plated brass filter holder with stainless steel filter (for 1 or 2 coffees) and a special filter for ESE coffee pods.

As well as the traditional filters, Dream features the latest coffee-making technology, with the new ‘super-froth’ filter for an extra-frothy espresso. These special pressurised filters for 1 or 2 cups ensure the frothiest coffee regardless of the coffee blend or grinding method used.

5 professional filters standard (2 traditional, 2 pressurized, 1 monodose E.S.E.)

Just filters?

The coffee filters on all our machines are of the very highest quality. Quality materials (AISI 304) and manufacturing.
Our cutting-edge production process guarantees optimum results time after time. Filter by filter. Hole by hole. If not, there will be significant differences in the cup and dispensing alterations.

Pump 20 bar

The professional water pump passes water through the coffee at the correct pressure to extract maximum aroma, flavour and organoleptic characteristics.

3-way solenoid valve

This type of valve allows the machine to offer dry dispensing, eliminating the final drips and preventing over-pressurisation. Made in all cases of lead-free brass (OT 57) and stem of AISI316 stainless steel.

Professional steam valve

New, exceptional quality. Highly durable. Simple and inexpensive to repair.
TFM (high performance) gasket closure system.

Electronic technology

Cutting-edge electronic components. ‘Tropicalized’ chipset. Intelligent steam management in the thermoblock.

Option

Electronic thermostat (adjustable).
Thermal stability ±1,5ºC

Fully independent electronic temperature control for each group, (up to 8 possible options ranging from 90°C to 106°C). We guarantee a maximum deviation of +/-1.5°C. In continuous or intermittent use. From the first coffee to the very last.

The traditional boiler and bimetal thermostats offered a deviation value of up to +/-5°C.

Much more stable and professional steam management
With electronic management, the amount of water entering the group is based on the machine’s temperature (not on the amount of water inside, as in the case of the boiler), by changing the pump activation frequency, thereby always producing dry steam.

The steam pressure in the first 10 seconds is superior with the boiler system but, as no water is added, that pressure runs out over time. With Thermoblock, the pressure is continuous and unlimited.

The boiler system is much less reliable in terms of element durability. Lack of water causes the system to ‘struggle’ when using steam services. Additionally, in the boiler system, use of a steam service requires the user to fill the boiler manually afterwards.

Temperature control

The external thermometer, with its retro design, tells the temperature of the coffee group.
Twin ºC – ºF scale.
