John Child tested this product
Considering I've used many different espresso machines over the years the Ascaso Uno was easy to set up and start making drinks right away. Once I was able to get my grind optimized, pulling shots of espresso and steaming milk was pretty easy. I do prefer my shots to run manually and the Uno is really meant to... Read more
Ideal for
  • Quick heat up time with the thermoblock
  • Milk frothing is great for beginners with a good vortex yet not too powerful to allow time to incorporate air
  • built in shot clock is great fro dialing in shots
Not ideal for
  • Transitioning from brew to steam takes about 1 minute
  • Wooden handle on the portafilter feels too light
  • Water reservoir is pretty small and needs to be refilled often if used for more than two people

Case was so helpful!
5 /5
Case was great -- helped me balance my priorities around espresso (being a newbie) while also pick something for my partner who is more adventurous and hands on. Was so helpful and let me go back and forth a few times and didn't make me feel bad about my indecision particularly with this big purchase!

5 /5
David helped walk me through the best machines based on what I was looking for. He made this process incredibly easy. Before meeting David from the Curated team, I'd already ordered a machine from Amazon and had instant regret. I was lost when it came to all of the overwhelming amounts of reviews out there and I was unable to sort through the marketing hype noise. David cut through everything and in less than 30 minutes, I had my machine ordered. Thank you, David!

I’m a long time breville user and have had the breville barista express for a long time. I always told myself I’d look into something that I can play with more and make better coffee with once my machine dies on me, and that day came last week. ’d been shopping around, but having Eric curate some options for me that fit my needs was perfect. I was impressed by this service, especially since he was so responsive and personal to what I wanted. Thanks to his recommendations, I’ll have amazing coffee again soon

When my much-used and truly enjoyed Breville Barista Pro stopped working, I loathed the prospect of replacing it. I really didn’t want another Breville (I was angry). I read and read MANY reviews of MANY machines. Depressing and overwhelming. Then, I met Matthew. He listened, responded, asked clarifying questions, and got me a set-up that fits my budget. If you work with him, you’ll very likely come away quite relieved and satisfied!

Can't recommend Andrea enough! All the options out there for getting started with a home coffee bar make the whole process overwhelming. She took my feedback and gave me exactly the type of recommendations I needed and made the curation completely customized to what I was looking for. She seemed genuinely interested in helping me get started with quality equipment while also not breaking the bank. Taking out the guesswork and making everything so personalized made the Curated experience well worth it. Thanks a ton Andrea!

I’ve been thinking about pulling the pin on an espresso machine for over a year now. I’ve done loads of research and was a bit stuck on the implications of the different parameters that come with the different machines. Eric ran through all of my questions and even made a video outlining the pros and cons of what I was ended up purchasing. So awesome, much appreciated

Matthew was super helpful, knowledgeable and efficient to find me what I needed within my budget. I could tell he's so passionate about coffee in general. He was able to use just a few additional questions to understand my preference and need and I was able to make a decision on the espresso machine I liked in such a short time. On top of that, there was a sale on the machine that fit my need, within my budget that i really liked, so the entire experience was time and money saver! Matthew was also very easy to talk to. I will definitely seek for Mathew's advice in my future coffee related purchases!
