The Ascaso Steel Duo PID has finds the balance between bringing a professionally dynamic designed espresso machine to a domestic setting. With the addition of the PID, control of the temperature of your coffee and hot water is at your fingertips! New design features like the blue LED’s along the toggle switches, the portafilter handle and steam knob crafted out of Pyrenean boxwood, and an active cup warmer sets this machine a part from many home models in it’s price range.
Ascaso includes the ability to choose between single and double shot dosing for coffee, and upgrade from previous versions of the Steel Duo.
Unlike the other Steel Duo models, the PID version has a 38W plate under the top panel actively warms cups, versus warming the cups with passive heat.
Ascaso has crafted the portafilter handle and steam knob out of Pyrenean boxwood–adding artful, chemical-free durability that you can feel!
Manufactured in stainless steel for maximum sturdiness, coated with a black or white enamel for a versatile fit for any kitchen.
The thermoblock is designed of aluminum for fast warm up times and thickness for good temperature stability. Aluminium also avoids ‘pitting’ in cases where purified water is used. The inside pipe for which water comes in contact for heating is made of stainless steel. Another bonus? The thermoblock in this case is less prone to limescale build up from magnesium and calcium – limescale is a major factor in causing problems on espresso machines.
Allows you the ability to remove the portafilter immediately after brewing, turning your grinds into a puck, rather than a watery mess!
Made of chrome plated brass, the grouphead on the Ascaso Steel Duo evenly distributes heat and reduces hotspots for more temperature consistent espresso. It has also been designed to evenly distribute water across the coffee grounds for a better extraction.
The ability to adjust the over pressure valve allows you to perfect your coffee to the flavor profile that is distinctly yours. The possibilities are endless!
A microprocessor pulsates the pump so water in the reservoir continuously fills the thermoblock for continuous steam – until the reservoir runs near empty.
Making coffee early in the morning, or who knows, late at night has never been easier! Ascaso has designed the Steel Duo with an illuminated work area so you can guarantee your coffee is making its way to your cup–no matter how dark it is.
Frothing milk has never been simpler! The panarello steam tip that Ascaso provides will have you making luxurious lattes and cappuccinos in no time. Ascaso also provides a new and improved steam tip for those who want a little more control with their microfoam.
No conversion kits needed here! As of April 2014, Ascaso has combined the ground / pod system into one. Simply switch out the filter basket to brew with freshly ground coffee or E.S.E pods. Ascaso provides FOUR different baskets.
