Thermoblock aluminium + stainless steel
High-capacity. Oversized to guarantee professional thermal stability and provide quality in every cup. The water circulates through a stainless steel circuit, reducing lime scale build-up to a minimum.
Provides a limitless supply of steam.

Two thermostats control the temperature of the coffee and steam and a resettable thermostat protects the machine from accidental overheating.
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.
Mobile filter holder (versatile)
This system allows the use of both ground coffee and ESE coffee pods. The thermoblock also makes unlimited steam production possible.
Ground coffee
ESE coffee pods
Coffee capsule (OPTIONAL)
New solid hood
The lower part of the coffee group is manufactured in solid nickel-plated 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.

The circular perforations are totally uniform and always the same size (maximum tolerance of 0.02 mm difference between one hole and the next).
Its design (a geometric pyramid for the holes and a 94º angle) guarantees uniform dispensing and reduces possible sediment in the coffee and the blocking of the holes.

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. Teflon®-treated to prevent lime scale build-up.
Professional steam valve
New, exceptional quality. Highly durable. Simple and inexpensive to repair. 
Viton® gasket closure system.
Electronic technology

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