The Innova Dream is the top line machine currently from Ascaso. Much of the machine's cost is around the housing and outer materials used. It contains the same inner parts that other Innova espresso machines have.

Mister Spock (quality: 4.5) 02.17.2008 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: This Ascaso machine really is "a dream" to use, making excellent espresso for home with loads of rich marbled crema via a 58mm pro portafilter (but it could use a pressure release valve).
Elizabeth Bennett (quality: 5.0) 12.30.2007 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: A sturdy, shiney machine that allows the beginner barrista to produce drinks like a pro!
Shawn Thomas 03.11.2013 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: One week in: Great color choices and style, similar price to the Rancilio Silvia, would certainly buy again.
Peter Piet (quality: 6.8) 05.29.2007 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Eyecatching beauty that can deliver the goods...
Mark Chassy (quality: 7.8) 10.19.2006 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: A good machine for someone who is serious about their espresso, and is willing to invest without going on to the Prosumer level.
Joel Bristol (quality: 9.5) 11.03.2007 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Best looking machine in its class, but it still has quality components that deliver good espresso.
Franck Maillet (quality: 5.5) 04.19.2004 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Beautiful, picky, easy to clean and maintain, mostly made of metal parts... and I forgot to mention delivers great coffee
Aaron Marchand (quality: 4.5) 07.28.2006 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: It can be picky, but makes great espresso. If you really want everything done for you -  buy a fully automated machine.
Thomas Hansen (quality: 2.5) 06.21.2006 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Makes great coffee, once you find the right coffe for it.
Mari R 05.30.2010 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: It's a love hate relationship with the Ascaso. I feel like I own a Volkswagon. Every Volkswagon I have met has needed odd, expensive repairs from qualified mechanics who live elsewhere - and yet we keep BUYING Volkswagons because they are so darned CUTE.
Cameron Brown 09.14.2013 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Looks great, works great, easy to use and clean, and makes great espresso. Recommended.
Glen Crompton (quality: 8.4) 07.29.2006 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Easy machine with loads of control over the result. Not too pretty but then not to ugly either!
Des P. 11.20.2009 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: -adequate as it comes; a winner with the brew head upgrade
