Barcelona Born, Ascaso Espresso Machines

Jose Luis Ascaso, founder of Ascaso, was an entrepreneur who wasn't afraid of hard work and combined those character traits early in life to begin what is now an extremely reputable, world-wide known espresso machine manufacturing company.  Born in a small town in northern Spain, he quickly realized he needed to be somewhere that afforded more opportunities and ventured to Barcelona with just dreams and about $30 to his name.  He worked for Gaggia for a time during the fifties, when espresso was just finding its popularity in Spain.  Production and distribution of spare parts for espresso machines had become an exclusive and very expensive market, and Jesus, ever the entrepreneur, decided to supply parts of all brands to the market and at lower prices.  This was in 1962, and the very start of his own company, one that manufactured spare parts alone.  Now, Ascaso sells to over 50 countries and offers everything from spare parts to extremely high quality coffee and espresso machines and even coffee grinders.  Ascaso truly represents the best of the best.  And Jose?  He spends half his time in the factory and the other six months of the year he lives in his original hometown and tends his tomato plants and honey crops.

Some of the best features that are common to all include:

  • Steam pipe:  Standard with every Ascaso espresso machine, the steam pipe makes creating cappuccinos and lattes so easy Ascaso refers to it as "magical"
  • Brass Boilers:  High quality ensures that the right temperature is achieved rapidly and then re-set quickly and accurately 
  • 16 BAR Pump: Ideal pressure for extraction with the highest level of aroma and flavor
  • OPV Valves:  The OPV valve is designed to precisely control pressure
  • 3-way System: Enables a dry extraction which does away with dripping and over pressurizing
  • Cup Warming: Just like you would find in a professional coffee bar, the top of each espresso machine has a warming area.  This ensures that the no temperature is lost when the espresso is poured into the cup
  • 3 Options:  Every model is available in: Only Pod, Only Ground and Versatile, which combines ground, ESE pod and pad in one machine
  • Water tanks: All Ascaso water tanks are at least 1.3 liters, even more for the business class line.  They are all removable and can also be filled even while the espresso machine is in use
  • Portafilters and filter baskets:  Extremely high-quality and created to bring professional taste to your home.   All models feature chrome brass portafilters and stainless steel filter baskets.  Special models also include the "supercream" version for an even creamier extraction, no matter what type of grinding degree used.

Ascaso Coffee Grinders


Ascaso offers three types of coffee grinders, each of which has varying models.  They use only the best professionalAscaso-Coffee-Grinder blades, and depending on which you prefer, you can choose from a brass group with a flat grinding wheel system or a plastic group with a cone shaped grinding wheel that features cone steel blades.  Each coffee grinder is equipped with the Micrometric Regulations system (MRS), also known as the "stepless adjustment" that is capable of even the most minute, precise adjustments, ideal for espresso grinding.  Easily grinds anything from espresso and long black to French press and Turkish.  Ascaso hoppers are guaranteed to be unbreakable and are made of clear, shatter-resistant plastic.  The i1-i2 and i-mini are made with aluminum and are each individually hand polished to provide a piece that is unique and special to you and you alone.  The i-steel is, of course, 100% stainless steel.


For extra individual appeal, the Ascaso coffee grinders come in a variety of colors!
