Ascaso Dream PID vs Ascaso Dream One

Ascaso's range of home coffee machines is best described by their iconic model called Dream. This model was designed over 15 years ago by Marc Aranyó and is still one of the most popular coffee machines on the market.

The main difference is that the Ascaso Dream PID is equipped with a digital PID temperature controller and thermometer. This controller allows the user to accurately adjust the water temperature for coffee extraction, which is key to achieving the perfect taste.

The ????PID control is one of the most widely used algorithms for precise control of the controlled variable. It is an abbreviation of the controller components P - Proportional, I - Integral and D - Derivative.????

Ascaso Steel Uno vs Ascaso Steel Duo

Other popular Ascaso coffee machines include the Steel Uno and Steel Duo models. The main difference between them is that the Steel Duo has a double boiler, while the Steel Uno has only one boiler.

TheAscaso Steel UNO has a single circuit, which consists of a thermoblock and primarily heats up to the temperature for brewing coffee. In order to use steam, you must switch to steam, i.e. activate the temperature rise of the system.

Wait until the system has heated up and sufficient steam has been generated. Steam can then be used to whisk milk, once the milk has been whisked the system must be cooled again to espresso mode.

TheAscaso Steel DUO has two independent circuits making it what is known as a two boiler system. It offers not only maximum comfort of use, but also perfect control over the system and perfect thermal stability.

There are two separate circuits in the coffee machineand each has its own heating element. It is therefore possible to independently adjust the temperature of the espresso water and the temperature of the water in the service thermoblock.

????To get the perfect foam, let the water run a little hotter so that the nozzle cools down faster. ????
