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
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)
Professional group

(Diameter 60mm)
The lower part of the coffee group is manufactured lead free brass.

Professional filter holders
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.

Thanks to its ergonomic design, it has a strong yet pleasant feel. Non-slip grip. It is tilted 10º for ease of use, while the horizontal placement of the filter holder in the delivery group ensures perfectly pressed coffee grounds.
Professional filters
As well as the traditional filters, Steel 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 system changes (over-/under-dispensing).

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.

Dual showerhead
Better removal and drying of the dose. AISI304.

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 filtering, eliminating the final drips and preventing over-pressurisation.  Teflon®-treated to prevent lime scale build-up.
Adjustable pressure valve (OPV.). 8 to 15 bars.
Only ground models.
Professional steam valve
New, exceptional quality. Highly durable. Simple and inexpensive to repair. 
Viton® gasket closure system.
Temperature control
The external thermometer, with its retro design, tells the temperature of the coffee group.
Twin ºC – ºF scale.
