    Brought my Basic to life!

    Posted by Ken on 20th Dec 2015

    I got this kit for my Ascaso Basic, which as the name suggests is the entry level machine. But put this kit in and the results can be like those of a machine twice the price.

    I found if you keep your grind fine using fresh beans, fill the basket level and wipe off excess, then a very firm tamp - gave me a 60 second shot (longer than normal I know), but was full of rich crema and freckling. Just fantastic! Not the results you'd get from a high end machine but if you've got one of this range's machines - even a non-solenoid like this, you won't be disappointed. Get it and see!

    Best home espresso I've ever made

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Jun 2014

    Wow! This conversion kit was so easy to install and my home espresso has never tasted better. I love the way it controls the water flow and creates a puck instead of the soupy grounds I was getting before. I have always loved my ascaso, and now I love it even more.

    better shots

    Upgrading to the ground coffee conversion kit makes a huge difference. it shows up how accurate your grind is but when you get that right you get a beautiful shot of espresso with s deep brown crema. Also the used grinds are dry so less mess.

    Must Buy for Ascaso Basic!

    Posted by Robert Michel on 1st Mar 2013

    I own an Ascaso Basic purchased a few years ago and needed to replace some seals. I saw this conversion kit for the Dream and thought it was worth a go at the same time as fixing the seals. All i can say is that it has made a world of have to get the non-pressurised basket at the same time but it is completely worthwhile. My coffee was never strong enough and inconsistent with the pressurised basket and pod/ground setup as manufactured. Now I have consistently great coffee. The best investment i could have made...

    what awonderful adaptor

    Posted by Arne Sjostedt on 28th Sep 2012

    Once i got the tamping and grind right, needing to adjust
    From when i just used the pressure basket and original group head -
    My coffee has been vastly improved.

    Don’t get me wrong – the dream made fantastic coffee with beautiful crema every time using its out of the box set up –
    Only things a vastly more refined after making this upgrade. Thanks.
