    I intend to use my machine for one person most of the time, drinking mostly black coffee, occasionally milk drinks. Which of the two machines would you choose? Apart from being able to steam the milk and brew the coffee at the same time, I see no other advantages of Breville over Ascaso. I...

    Hi, I hope this is allowed (I am not the seller) - I do not have the required posts to put this under eBay. A guy in Blackburn has listed some brand new Ascaso Dream MCs on eBay for between £200 and £225 depending upon colour (some of the boxes are apparently tatty). He has a good feedback and...

    Hello everyone, I was hoping someone could offer me some advice on my Ascaso Dream Versatile. I recently purchased a ground coffee only conversion kit with the wider dispersion screen and since installing this I've noticed this has considerably lowered the group head, (probably up to 8mm) this...

    I have just bought an Ascaso Dream but have been getting very wet pucks and, on less fine grinds, craters. I now understand that this is because I have a 'versatile' model which means shower screen/dispersion plate does not have enough holes to brew ground coffee properly. Furthermore my model...

    Anyone got any tips on how to pull multiple milky coffees on a single boiler machine (Ascaso Dream)? Mine has only been doing a latte at a time so far, steaming milk first then temperature surfing to refill the boiler and lower the temp before pulling the shot. Yesterday I used the same method...

    The Ascaso Dream looks a nice bit of kit. But can't seem to find any reviews....Any help would be appreciated. Its a mine field of expresso machines and grinders out there...Also thinking of the Gaggia Baby.

    Hi all, After my Ascaso Dream packed up yet again, and after much deliberation I have just bought a Silvia from Has Bean. After emailing Steve to check stock etc I ordered it about 11.00am yesterday and 10.00am this morning it arrived! Unbelivably good service! Got it all set up and can't...

    This post is in response to a request from Glenn about my thoughts on the Ascaso Dream & i mini grinder. I have had the Dream for about 16 months and find it a very good machine, it looks good, heats up quickly and is easy to use and maintain, the only parts I have replaced are the brew head...

    Hi everyone. I'm looking at getting my wife a coffee machine for Christmas, but alas I have no idea about coffee. I occasionally drink a cup at work with milk and 2 sugars (judging from the name of this website I'm pretty sure that's as close to blasphemy as I can get - sorry!) and always have...
