The Ascaso ARC v2 espresso machine fits in any kitchen design and is small enough to fit in space challenged situations. It is compact, yet it has excellent brewing results and steaming ability. The ARC is a medium priced espresso machine that excels at making your favorite espresso drinks.
Some of the features on the ARC espresso machine include: beautiful, compact, steel housing, simple to use controls, ground coffee baskets, special milk frothing tip, a removable water tank, a cup tray, ESE pod baskets, a powerful pump, an efficient heating element for steaming milk and making hot water, cup warming surface and a removable drip tray.
Version 2 of the ARC espresso machine has a new and improved thermoblock design – it is built with aluminum for faster heating times and with uniform thickness for temperature stability. The inside tubing for water heating is made of stainless steel. This reduces limescale buildup of magnesium and calcium, which is a main cause of espresso machine problems.
Another improvement in the ARC V2 espresso machine, is a microprocessor that pulsates the water pump so that the thermoblock is continually filled, providing steam consistency.
A third improvement on V2 machine an addition of a ground coffee kit and includes the adapter and screen which can be added to the grouphead so only ground coffee can be used.
With the simple push of a button, you can start the flow of espresso until you have the desired amount of coffee. The control panel features durable buttons that are logically arranged and simple to use. Several indicator lights tell you when the machine is powered up and when it’s at the proper temperature for brewing or steaming milk.
The grouphead is made of chrome plated brass and is designed to evenly distribute heat and reduces “hotspots” for more temperature consistent espresso.
The ARC uses commercial grade, heavy-duty chrome plated brass coffee holders, which feature a rugged plastic handle. There is one coffee holder for ground coffee and espresso pods. Pressurized single shot and double shot 57 mm diameter stainless steel filter baskets are also included just in case pre-ground coffee is used. The larger size baskets allow you to use more ground coffee per serving for stronger espresso or cups of coffee. The third basket can be placed into the filter holder for E.S.E. compatible espresso pods.
The removable water reservoir, equipped with a water level indicator, can be filled while operating or taken out and filled at the faucet.
A good water pump that has the power to force water through the coffee grounds is critical for extracting the full flavor from the coffee. With a 16 bar pump, there is nothing to worry about.
The ARC has an easy to remove/clean polished stainless steel cup tray and a drip pan. Keeps your cups warm with a cup-warming surface on the top of the machine.
The aluminum thermoblock with internal stainless steel lining of the water passage ways work remarkably well.
The ARC is constructed of steel that has been finished throughout with enamel paint. All of the components that make up the construction are designed for long life and low maintenance.
