Combining Technology and Durability

With 25 inspection points at the Ascaso factory in Barcelona, you can rest assured that your Dream PID will pull espressos perfectly for years to come. In addition to its ability to endure kitchen conditions, this Spanish-built machine uses a PID (proportional integral derivative) system. This system is common in high-end machines, whereby it replaces the thermostat and keeps your water at a consistent temperature. Unlike other machines, which heat the water to the desired temperature, turn off, and then turn back on if the temperature falls too low, the Dream system maintains a consistent water temperature. The result is a better espresso every time.

A word on the manufacturer

In the 1950s, Jesús Ascaso left his small village in the mountainous region of Huesca, Spain. With just 3,000 pesetas in his pocket (about $280 today), the entrepreneur went to Barcelona to work in the espresso industry. In 1962, he launched his own brand, Ascaso. The company initially focused on manufacturing spare parts for espresso machines. Later on, his son took the next step by producing the complete machines that we know today, and grew the brand to markets in over 95 countries.
