Ascaso Steel Uno PID Espresso Machine + Ascaso I-mini Coffee Grinder
Ascaso Steel Uno PID Espresso Machine
The STEEL range goes one step further and transcends the Home use. It is a professional coffee machine for home, offices, and even the Hospitality channel.
I t was designed by the Ascaso Factory engineering team in its UNO and DUO versions and it is offered in a robust industrial b odywork that meets the requirements of the expert user. It is manufactured with the highest quality materials (aluminum, stainl ess steel, brass), and a minimum use of plastic. The standard version is equipped with a Ø 58mm filter holder and electronic temper ature control.
The PID version provides a completely professional performance: externally adjustable OPV and a external PID display for temperature setting, adjustable pre-infusion, stand-by option and much more. A professional machine at Home!
Thermal stability. Quality in cup.
Less limescale build-up. Stainless steel circuit reduces limescale build-up.
Unlimited steam. Constant pressure. No damage to the heating element caused by low water levels.
Healthy 100%. AISI 316 stainless steel water circuit. No metal migration in water. Complies with European standard EN 16889.
Clean water. Here it is constantly renewed and clean for every coffee. The taste and smell of the coffee are unaffected. As the water does not stand in the boiler, being constantly re-heated, quality is not affected.
Made in Barcelona with its own technology.
Manufactured in stainless steel for maximum sturdiness. The range is completed with 1, 2 or 3 groups. A wide range of possibilities that make this a truly professional machine in a domestic environment.
The mobile filter holder model (ground coffee/versatile) includes a Tam-tamper: Professional aluminium coffee tamper (58 mm) designed by Marc Aranyó.
Stainless steel. Multidirectional to 360º. The wand is cold to the touch, reducing the risk of contact burns.
Milk build-up is reduced to a minimum, making for easy cleaning.
The new aluminium + stainless steel group guarantees continuous, unlimited steam. The life of the piece is now much longer thanks to the fact that lime scale does not build up on the stainless steel circuit.
Can be removed for easy maintenance, cleaning and visual access, allowing the user to quickly check the amount of water in the chamber. The reservoir can be filled with the coffee machine in operation. BPA – free.
Emulating professional coffee bar machines, the upper part features a surface that keeps cups warm, ensuring that coffee remains at its optimum temperature.
Large area – 270 mm x 315 mm. 100% usable (Side reservoir)
Beauty and simplicity. A geometrical design that recalls the classic lines of bygone espresso machines. Easy to clean, with an extractable tray containing coffee spill.
The high quality of the machine makes it a pleasure to use. Emphasises the industrial look. Leds.
Along with the PID temperature control, this enables complete control of the machine.
Look at the light!
We are so confident of the quality of our coffee machines. Our quest for excellence has allowed us to extend the international warranty to 5 years on all of our boilers & groups purchased from 2019.
1. The use of the correct filtration system and regular maintenance are both essential for the product warranty to remain in force and to ensure the perfect operation of your coffee machine.
2. The connection of the machine to the earthing () should comply with the electrical regulations currently in force in the place where the machine is installed.
3. Do not use acids or corrosive products for cleaning.
This system allows the use of both ground coffee and ESE coffee pods. The thermoblock also makes unlimited steam production possible.
Coffee group is manufactured lead free brass.
New software: Instant, constant and powerful.
To get a professional result as in a boiler system, we have to change only a little the way of frothing: Work from the beginning to the end on the surface.
In a boiler system, we are used to working on the surface to provide air and then in depth to create circulation and heat the milk.
With our system we achieve the same result by working only on the surface: first to bring in air and then lower it just a little to create circulation and heat. The process is a little slower than with a boiler.
Watch this video where we frothing milk in the DUO with the two standard nozzles:
The electromechanical pressure switch is eliminated. Common in the industry, but not very precise and with mechanical failures.
Selection of the temperature of the coffee group by means of the display. From 110ºC to 165ºC
We incorporate a steam knob in place of the switch.
Following the Ascaso philosophy of transferring professional components from the espresso coffee world to the home, all our machines feature a filter holders and filters made of stainless steel (for 1 or 2 coffees) and a special filter for ESE coffee pods.
Thanks to its ergonomic design, it has a strong yet pleasant feel. Non-slip grip. It is tilted 10º for ease of use, while the horizontal placement of the filter holder in the delivery group ensures perfectly pressed coffee grounds.
We only use the Stainless Steel Portafilter (including the 1 and 2 coffee spouts). In the entire Home Pro (Dream One / Pid, Steel) and Professional (Bar, Baby T, Barista T, Big Dream) range.
We stopped using brass and chrome on this key component. The advantages are multiple:
Quality of material. Stainless steel is a much harder material than brass. Its lifespan is much longer.
As well as the traditional filters, Steel features the latest coffee-making technology, with the new 'super-froth' filter for an extra-frothy espresso. These special pressurised filters for 1 or 2 cups ensure the frothiest coffee regardless of the coffee blend or grinding method used.
6 professional filters standard (2 traditional, 2 pressurized, 1 blind and 1 monodose E.S.E.)
The coffee filters on all our machines are of the very highest quality. Quality materials (AISI 304) and manufacturing.
Our cutting-edge production process guarantees optimum results time after time. Filter by filter. Hole by hole. If not, there will be significant differences in the cup and system changes (over-/under-dispensing).
Laser engraving, including a different serial number for each filter.
The circular perforations are totally uniform and always the same size (maximum tolerance of 0.02 mm difference between one hole and the next).
Its design (a geometric pyramid for the holes and a 94º angle) guarantees uniform dispensing and reduces possible sediment in the coffee and the blocking of the holes.
Without welding. AISI304
The professional water pump passes water through the coffee at the correct pressure to extract maximum aroma, flavour and organoleptic characteristics.
This type of valve allows the machine to offer dry filtering, eliminating the final drips and preventing over-pressurisation. Made in all cases of lead-free brass (OT 57) and stem of AISI316 stainless steel.
Externally adjustable pressure valve.
New, exceptional quality. Highly durable. Simple and inexpensive to repair.
TFM (high performance) gasket closure system.
Cutting-edge electronic components. 'Tropicalized' chipset. Intelligent steam management in the thermoblock.
Fully independent electronic temperature control for each group, (up to 8 possible options ranging from 90°C to 106°C). We guarantee a maximum deviation of +/-1.5°C. In continuous or intermittent use. From the first coffee to the very last.
The traditional boiler and bimetal thermostats offered a deviation value of up to +/-5°C.
Much more stable and professional steam management
With electronic management, the amount of water entering the group is based on the machine’s temperature (not on the amount of water inside, as in the case of the boiler), by changing the pump activation frequency, thereby always producing dry steam.
The steam pressure in the first 10 seconds is superior with the boiler system but, as no water is added, that pressure runs out over time. With Thermoblock, the pressure is continuous and unlimited.
The boiler system is much less reliable in terms of element durability. Lack of water causes the system to ‘struggle’ when using steam services. Additionally, in the boiler system, use of a steam service requires the user to fill the boiler manually afterwards.
Coffee and steam temperature control, stand-by, chronometer, counter, preinfusion, 5 warnings.
Thermoblock Thermal cover.
Active cupwarmer (10W)
Work area light.
Two options: Small or large coffee
Significantly reduces energy consumption and increases thermal stability in the group
Cutting-edge electric cup warmer (consumption 10W)
Ergonomic. Warm natural feel.
Ascaso I-mini Coffee Grinder
High-quality materials and components
The i·mini coffee grinder is manufactured in aluminium. After preliminary polishing, the machine is treated with a high-quality varnish (the same coating as used in Formula 1 and on boats), with a range of 3 colours and a choice of finishes – polished gloss or textured matte (see colours).
As well as these colours, we also offer our mirror-polish finish, featuring an artisan-mechanical process that gives its own character to each piece (enlarge).
All i·mini models use the I-1 or I-2 grinding group
In both models, the milling equipment is made from special tempered steel. This is the same steel as used in professional high-performance coffee grinders. Service life: 600 kilos.
The grinding group is made from plastic while the grinding cones are steel.
Both the I-1 and I-2 model milling groups guarantee professional grinding for espressos.
The I-1 model offers a faster grinding speed (250-W motor) and quieter running then the I-2 (175-W motor)
