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.
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

Coffee group is manufactured lead free brass.

About Fixed filter holder
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.
Powerful steam

New software: Instant, constant and powerful.

  1. More steam power is gained by increasing the working surface of the steam circuit.
  2. Extra steam pressure can be generated just by delaying the opening of the tap after activating the system.
  3. Our new software algorithm has increased the power of steam in 25%!!
Steam without boiler
  • Improves energy consumption. We reduce it from 35% to 70%, according to EN60661 test.

  • We avoid heating element failures. Ascaso also offers a 5-year warranty on the steam unit that includes it.
    Vacuum valves, safety valves and immersion probes are also eliminated.

  • Waiting time for activation 2 minutes. Our steam unit is ready within 2 minutes after switching on. Once switched on, steam generation is instantaneous. A boiler takes between 15 and 25 minutes from start-up.

  • Instantaneous regeneration time. Constant steam. A boiler takes several minutes to recover if it has previously made steam, proportionally to its use. With our system the waiting time is zero. Throughout the process it does not lose steam, it is constant for 3 minutes (maximum established for system safety) and then recovers instantly.

  • We use clean water in every steam service (no water constantly overheated).
Tip - How to frothing milk with this system

To get a professional result as in a boiler system, we have to change only a little the way of frothing: Work from the beginning to the end on the surface.

In a boiler system, we are used to working on the surface to provide air and then in depth to create circulation and heat the milk.

With our system we achieve the same result by working only on the surface: first to bring in air and then lower it just a little to create circulation and heat. The process is a little slower than with a boiler.

Watch this video where we frothing milk in the DUO with the two standard nozzles:


Steam with control PID

The electromechanical pressure switch is eliminated. Common in the industry, but not very precise and with mechanical failures.

Selection of the temperature of the coffee group by means of the display. From 110ºC to 165ºC

More ergonomic steam

We incorporate a steam knob in place of the switch.

  1. You don't have to wait a second to get steam. Simply activating the steam function allows us to open or close the tap to get steam instantly.

  2. More professional approach to steam generation operation.
Professional filter holders
Following the Ascaso philosophy of transferring professional components from the espresso coffee world to the home, all our machines feature a filter holders and filters made of stainless steel (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.
Ø58mm Stainless steel filter and filter holders

We only use the Stainless Steel Portafilter (including the 1 and 2 coffee spouts). In the entire Home Pro (Dream One / Pid, ​​Steel) and Professional (Bar, Baby T, Barista T, Big Dream) range.

We stopped using brass and chrome on this key component. The advantages are multiple:

-Health. Stainless steel is the food material par excellence. Even with the use of low lead brass, there are metal migrations in the beverage. We also remove the chrome, which ends up in the cup. The traditional chrome-plated brass filter holder is black on the inside in a few weeks, while the stainless steel one is unalterable over time.

Quality of material. Stainless steel is a much harder material than brass. Its lifespan is much longer.

-Cleaning. Much easier to clean and more resistant.

-Esthetic. We have provided this filter holder with several details that give the product a better image:

  1. Internal laser marking
  2. Glossy finish
  3. Logo on the handle
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.

6 professional filters standard (2 traditional, 2 pressurized, 1 blind and 1 monodose E.S.E.)

Laser engraving, including a different serial number for each filter.


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.

Available in 4 sizes (18gr and 21gr are optional)


High quality shower
Without welding. 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.  Made in all cases of lead-free brass (OT 57) and stem of AISI316 stainless steel.

Externally adjustable pressure valve.

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