New and Improved Design
The recently upgraded Ascaso Dream UP V3 Espresso Machine features some changes and improvements from the V2 model. This new and improved design combines the ground/pod system into one, eliminating the need for conversion kits. The thermal block group is constructed with Stainless Steel in addition to the original aluminum, and the new group head is made from 100% brass. The steam nozzle has again been upgraded for better durability and stability. This Ascaso Dream UP model is not coated in enamel. Instead, its aluminum body has been polished to a high gloss finish. Made in Barcelona, Spain. 2 year warranty.
- Easy to Use Controls: Simply flip the center power switch begin the heating process. The other two switches control the steam function and the coffee brew. When the machine is ready to go, simple indicator lights will let you know.
- Temperature Gauge: The front mounted gauge will monitor the boiler's temperature during the brew and steam cycles.
- Frothing Tip: The stainless steel frothing wand makes frothing milk fun and easy. Mounted on a simple swivel joint, it easily moves out of the way when you're done.
- Quality Brew Group: Designed after Ascaso's commercial espresso machines, the Dream UP group head is designed to evenly distribute heat and reduce hotspots for a consistent espresso every time and is made from 100% solid brass.
- Three-Way Solenoid Valve: This ingenious valve allows for near-constant boiler pressure without needing to wait to utilize the steam wand after brewing.
- Top-Quality Portafilter and Basket: Biding by their tradition of only using commercial-quality parts in their machines, the Dream UP V3 uses high quality and heavy-duty chrome plated brass on its portafilter, which also comes paired with a rugged plastic handle. This same portafilter is used for ground coffee and ESE pods alike. Included with this machine are single and double shot 57-mm diameter stainless steel filter baskets.

This specialized thermoblock design features a stainless steel lining to preserve heat even further and resist internal corrosion.
