The Innova Dream is the top line machine currently from Ascaso. Much of the machine's cost is around the housing and outer materials used. It contains the same inner parts that other Innova espresso machines have.
Joel Bristol (quality: 9.5)
Bottom Line: Best looking machine in its class, but it still has quality components that deliver good espresso.
Robert J. O'Brien (quality: 9.0)
Bottom Line: If you're seeking power, pressure, sleek design, solid build, a simple operation, and consistent coffee quality, this is the machine for you.
Phil Goodlaxson (quality: 8.5)
Bottom Line: Espresso with body and taste, a solid delivery from a solid machine.
Glen Crompton (quality: 8.4)
Bottom Line: Easy machine with loads of control over the result. Not too pretty but then not to ugly either!
Anders N (quality: 8.1)
Bottom Line: Don't buy it
Mark Chassy (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: A good machine for someone who is serious about their espresso, and is willing to invest without going on to the Prosumer level.
Jon Armour (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Totally sexy machine that makes fantastic coffee
Peter Piet (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Eyecatching beauty that can deliver the goods...
Måns Kämpe (quality: 6.7)
Bottom Line: A great-looking machine which also makes very good espresso and latte.
Franck Maillet (quality: 5.5)
Bottom Line: Beautiful, picky, easy to clean and maintain, mostly made of metal parts... and I forgot to mention delivers great coffee
Fengshui . (quality: 5.0)

J H (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Beautiful looking and delivers great espresso, not to be missed
Elizabeth Bennett (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: A sturdy, shiney machine that allows the beginner barrista to produce drinks like a pro!
Mister Spock (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: This Ascaso machine really is "a dream" to use, making excellent espresso for home with loads of rich marbled crema via a 58mm pro portafilter (but it could use a pressure release valve).
Aaron Marchand (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: It can be picky, but makes great espresso. If you really want everything done for you - buy a fully automated machine.
Thomas Hansen (quality: 2.5)
Bottom Line: Makes great coffee, once you find the right coffe for it.
Søren T (quality: 2.5)
Bottom Line: Beautiful, and that’s not half of it...
Bottom Line: -adequate as it comes; a winner with the brew head upgrade
Bottom Line: An excellent, simplistic, and beautiful machine capable of pulling consistent god shots that will make you glad to get out of bed in the morning.
Bottom Line: It's a love hate relationship with the Ascaso. I feel like I own a Volkswagon. Every Volkswagon I have met has needed odd, expensive repairs from qualified mechanics who live elsewhere - and yet we keep BUYING Volkswagons because they are so darned CUTE.
