Jesus Ascaso founded the Ascaso Factory in Barcelona, Spain in 1962. That enterprise grew until it became a major brand in the world of home and professional espresso machines. Today, Ascaso sells its products in over 80 countries.  

The Ascaso Dream was designed by Marc Aranyo and is known for its retro looks and quality. The machine is built with the highest quality aluminum, stainless steel and brass with minumal plastic.  It features a 3 way solenoid valve, an adjustable over pressure valve and comes with an aluminum tamper.   And, since it comes in 12 colors ( and polished aluminum), you should have no problem matching your kitchen decor.
