Subject: Ascaso Dream machine - opinions?
 

I've toyed with the idea of buying one of these, simply because i like the style but i've not had any experience with them. I run a coffee shop and use Bezerra machines, but i'm thinking of using this for use in the home really.

Are they reliable? Any opinions?

Any input welcome :)






Moderator moved: I'm going to agree with Ron and, for the chance for more help for our OP move this thread to the Espresso Machine Forum.

So, just the looks of the machine drew your attention?  Have you looked into the specs?  Seeing as how you run a cafe, one (here) would expect you to know at least a little bit about espresso machines.

Any reason you don't want a Bezzera semi-commercial? (Other than the cost)


Please read the second post in this thread...

"home machine"


Then please re-post with your answers.


You also should probably ask a moderator to move your thread to Espresso Machines.

Sorry, i'm fairly new here still!

I'm full aware of the specifications, just never had any hands on experience with them. I want to know about reliability, if people have had issues with them, things like that really.

Bezzera range is far more expensive and i just prefer the Ascaso styling, it's more inkeeping with my kitchen. I like the pseudo-classic appearance.

I wasn't aware this was posted in the wrong section, my apologies!

I don't have and haven't ever had that machine, so I can't reply to your specific questions. It's hard to recommend something though without knowing your needs (how many drinks, how often and the other things we typically ask before giving advice).

wasn't so much the wrong section as there's a better place that will likely give you more hits.  Hopefully, you'll get you questions answered soon.
