In 1962, Jesus Ascaso founded the Ascaso Factory in Barcelona, Spain. The Ascaso enterprise kept on growing until it became a major brand in the world of home and professional espresso machines. It creates espresso machines and coffee grinders with long lasting components where durability and professional performance are the rule.
The term 'Professional' used by Ascaso signifies that the grouphead and portafilter accommodate 58mm diameter sized filter baskets like that found on commercial machines

It is manufactured with the highest quality materials (aluminum, stainless steel, brass), and a minimum use of plastic.
