The vintage espresso machines always bring some bittersweet memories. Designed in Spain by Marc Aranyo, the Ascaso Dream vintage cappuccino coffee machines captivate you with their sleek, streamline looks and beautiful hand finishes in shiny aluminum. The Ascaso Dream is available in two almost identical variants – the regular coffee machine for use with espresso pods only, and Versatile line which can use both ground coffee and pods. The Dream pod vintage espresso machine comes with a special fixed pod holder that is mounted on the machine for an easy pod insertion and removal. Simply twist the holder clockwise and insert the pod, and then turn it counter-clockwise to lock the pod in place. Flip the coffee brew switch to brew your espresso or coffee, and then turn off the brew switch when you have obtained the desired amount. By far is one of the easiest pod-only machines on the market, vintage or not. The hand assembled 16 bar pump Versatile espresso machine comes with the brass boiler and two professional brass filter holders – one for ground coffee, the other for pods. Other features include safety thermofuse and steam pipe protector, electric heating with electronic circuit protection, accu-read gauge and the flip-switch controls for trouble free, user-friendly operation, dual system temperature control for coffee brewing, steam and frothing, removable 1.3 liter water tank with easy to read visual level, convenient cup warmer and easy to clean grid and polished drip tray. The Ascaso Dream vintage espresso coffee machines also employ not so vintage thermoblock heating technology for on demand brewing and frothing as well as Powerful Constant Steam Generation System which whips milk automatically resulting in high production of hot water and steam. Available in 15 different finishes, with prices at around £490, these excellent Vintage espresso machines by Ascaso will fit into any decor and design.
