The Ascaso Factory has been making espresso machine and components since it was founded in 1962 – over 50 years of expertise! The continual refinement of their manufacturing process during this time has led to very reliable, high quality products. While the brand isn’t as commonly purchased as competing brands, it doesn’t mean their products aren’t up to quality standards. Quite the contrary! They tend to be much better than a lot of the cheap espresso machines that are commonly sold in American stores. Some of these machines can’t even be considered competition due to their low quality and ability to produce great drinks.
Many of the features found on Ascaso products are commercial grade – providing more durability and greater performance.
When the company was first founded, they specialized in making high quality components for espresso machine manufacturers. After establishing a reputation in this market, the Ascaso Factory decided to take their component expertise to the next level and make their own complete machines.
The company has a beautiful facility in Barcelona with over 100,000 square feet of space dedicated to making great espresso machines!
