Ascasco Big Dream

Read entire post: Ascasco Big Dream

We’ve created an energy-efficient, long-lasting and hygienic coffee machine equipped with all the features to produce outstanding espresso coffee.

We invite you to come and discover the reality of our big dream. The beautiful Big Dream is the result of years of development and the enthusiasm of a team of engineers with the ambition to change one hundred years of history

The first espresso coffee machine was manufactured more than 100 years ago. Since then, the materials used to manufacture coffee machines have barely changed.

Yes, 100 years…

100 years in which there has been a huge evolution in terms of the design, exterior materials and electronic devices that facilitate and improve coffee extraction… Yet inside, at the heart of the machine, nothing has happened for over a century. Brass and copper are still the main components of coffee machines. The technical characteristics of these materials tell us that thermal stability, energy efficiency, mechanical resistance and lime scale adherence to the components cannot possibly be optimal.

So… why not seek out the best?

Our technical team of dedicated engineers has devoted more than four years to this quest. We wanted to evolve. To change 100 years of history. There were other options out there, and they were better.

At our factory in Barcelona, we have engineered change: more than a century later, we have manufactured the first coffee machine that eschews the conventional materials of the previous century, replacing them completely with stainless steel.

The first coffee machine in the world in which 100% of the components are made from stainless steel.
 
We love stainless steel!
It is possibly one of the finest materials ever created by humans.

It is used in surgical instruments, containers for the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the aeronautical sector, drinking water pipes and… from now on, to manufacture espresso coffee machines.

With this new structural language (and a great deal of enthusiasm) we have managed to create a unique and optimal product. The definitive response to all the challenges we posed to our engineers. 
 
 
 

Main features
 
  • Manufactured 100% from stainless steel. All components are stainless steel, replacing the copper and brass of traditional machines. 
  • A robust body in 2.5 mm thick stainless steel.
  • Multi-boiler technology (on/off by group)/saturated groups.
  • Independent steam boiler.
  • Thermal lagging on boilers (coffee and steam) and groups.
  • PID control (+ 0.1º) for each group and steam boiler.
  • Thermal stability (+/- 0.2º)
  • Dynamic preheating (coffee groups).
  • Energy efficient (-40%)
  • Two pre-infusion options (soft and standard).
  • Hot water. Dual selection (volume).
  • Precise control of water temperature for infusions.
  • Powerful steamer (12 mm anti-lime scale tube with double stainless steel wall)
  • High-precision filters in AISI 304 stainless steel. Thickness: 1 mm. All standard measurements: 7/14/18/21 g.
  • Adjustable cup warmer. From 30º to 60ºC.
  • TFT touchscreen. Functional, intuitive software. Multiple functions. Total control.
  • Designed for baristas: Low height (49 cm), mirror effect, joystick steam controls: two positions, LED in work area, RGB LEDs on button pad, 5 selections.
  • Different colours and customization options.

With the new PID you can adjust the temperature of the boiler to suit your blend coffee and adjust the dose of coffee dose. Display shows up to 5 alarms - Water/coffee ratio, coffee or steam gauge, coffee group or steam.The PID is very handy, if you need to make the shot at the exact temperature ie 92ºC - you can change boiler temperature from 85ºC - 110ºC via PID screen.
2017 PID Models features:
