Ascaso Baby T Plus was born from our Barista T model for the commercial channel. It uses the same technology and has the same features, but in a reduced size (35 cm). This allows to have a high quality of extraction, in any place: the horeca channel, coffee shops, food trucks, offices, boutiques and, of course, at home.

A 100% Professional Espresso Coffee Machine: multi-group, total Pid control (coffee and steam), exceptional thermal stability and energy efficient.

A new concept, a new technology, adapted to a new reality to make professional espressos and cappuccinos anywhere and, especially, at home.

From E-61 technology to T

A reappraisal of tradition. Sustainable engineering.

First, society changes. Neither manufacturers nor engineers nor industrial engineers invent new needs. It is society that demands products that are more sustainable with improved energy efficiency, easier to use and longerlasting.


In these new times, it is the professional barista who demands innovative products without compromising the espresso’s.

At Ascaso, our team of engineers has spent years working to differentiate and perfect our espresso coffee machines. And this has led us to reappraise our approach to tradition. To ground our projects on sustainable engineering.

In the ‘60s, the development of the E-61 group brought innovation to the espresso world. It was an instant success and became one of the most widely used systems in the history of espresso coffee Even today, many manufacturers still use it or work with its principles.

But, almost 60 years later, we needed to look for a new technology that addressed the shortcomings of the old.

Main Features

Technology T (T-Plus)

Thermal Stability System

The filtered and clean water enters the machine through the rotary pump at a certain pressure.

Enter the water/steam boiler through a U-shaped preheater tube (thick and 100% Aisi 316 L stainless steel), at network or ambient temperature. And it comes out hot without touching or altering the water in the water boiler. A very efficient system (no need to use any additional energy to preheat the water entering the groups).

Hot water (80º) will enter each thermodynamic coffee group.

The coffee group (see technology group T) and the algorithm established in the electronic exchange, guarantee a great thermal stability of the water at the exit of the group (+ – 0.5ºC). Both in situations of continuous or timely consumption.

And all this without constantly reheating the water or having saturated groups of water. Clean water in each coffee at a constant temperature. With a much more efficient and sustainable technology.

Multi-group (separate) technology with PID control.
Minimal metal migration to the beverage through the use of stainless steel.
Freshly Delivered Water.
Energy efficiency.
Stainless Steel & Multi-Groups System

Stainless Steel

A Remarkable Material
Mechanical resistance
The mechanical resistance of copper is almost nil. Stainless steel has a high mechanical resistance.
Anti-lime scale
Stainless steel is the ideal material to avoid the build-up of lime scale deposits.
Its offers optimal corrosion resistance. It is an excellent choice from a hygiene point of view.

Multi-Group System

The multi-group technology is based on coffee groups and a steam boiler that work completely independently. Each group and boiler have their own autonomous heating system, safety device and precise electronic temperature control.

This system is much more evolved than the conventional system of a single boiler or the dual boiler machines.

  • Aids energy saving.
  • You can turn a group on or off independently.
  • Standby function by group or for all the groups. Being independent, the power is only used for the parts of the machine you are using at that particular time.
  • Excellent thermal stability.
  • Excellent extraction quality for either small or large operating volumes. The quantity of steam does not influence the thermal stability of the coffee groups.
  • High, consistent steam production (exclusive boiler)
  • The machine can be adjusted to different types of coffees and roasts.
  • Extra safety level. If there is a problem with one group, the others will continue working.

Professional Coffee Group

New Thermodynamic Coffee Groups. With a large thermal mass (lead free brass), heated with a separate professional-grade thermoblock (modern thermodynamic technology) in each group, with a temperature sensor that can be easily adjusted by the barista.

With thermal insulation on all surfaces. Unit thermally insulated from the rest of the machine. Focused on conserving energy by heating the extraction water only. The coffee group is completely ‘enveloped’ by thermal cladding. Unique in the market.

Thermal stability. Energy efficiency. Coffee groupindependent of the steam production and water boiler.

Group Restrictors made of Ruby

They are in stainless steel at the moment. Their manufacturing in ruby offers many advantages for the group flow of water.

  • Wear resistance. A constant water flow through a small hole produces high level of friction which affects to its size. Ruby material ensures a much longer durability than stainless steel or brass. And less erosion.
  • Reduced possibility of scaling in the restrictor. Ruby is the best material to prevent clogging.

Restrictor is a key element in the coffee brewing. Its clogging or fluctuation may produce a variation of the rate or quantity of water flow.

Independent steam boiler in AISI-316 Stainless Steel

Manufactured in 100% AISI 316 stainless steel.
Plasma-welded both inside and out.
Extremely sturdy: Boiler thickness: 2.5 mm / Lid thickness: 10 mm
Large capacity: 2,5 liters.
Weight: 1,9 kg

In addition, with more than 1,9 kg of thermal mass in very thick AISI 316 stainless steel it provides exceptional thermal stability. This means that the steam pressure is kept constant and it uses less energy while at the same time maximising steam production.

Lime scale hardly ever adheres to stainless steel. This makes cleaning much simpler and means repairs are a thing of the past.

Our boilers (coffee and steam) include a thermal sleeve which reduces the machine’s consumption by up to 35%.

PID Control

(PID) (Proportional Integral Derivative)
Easy and optimal temperature regulation lets you select the appropriate extraction process for each coffee, producing excellent results.

Our system offers a precision of 0.5ºC which considerably reduces any heat fluctuations within the coffee group.

The barista simply has to select the desired temperature and Barista T will do the rest.


To do so, Barista T has triple temperature control:

1. Dynamic pre-heating/temperature control of the water entering the coffee group.

2. Control of the temperature of the coffee group (PID).

3.Control of the steam boiler/water temperature (PID)

Energy Efficiency
50% More Energy Efficient
  • We guarantee a saving 50% compared to a single boiler traditional coffee machine.
  • Use of electronically controlled thermoblocks focused on conserving energy by heating the extraction water only.
  • Electronic temperature management. The heating element only operates when necessary and only for as long as required. It allows ‘smart’ control, with a much lower energy consumption than other systems on the market.
  • PID Control in all the coffee boilers and the steam boiler. Featuring electronic thermostats that are much more precise and act much faster than the traditional mechanical pressure gauge system.
  • The Multi-Group System means that power is only used by the part of the machine in use at any time. Each group can be turned off or on independently.
  • Thermal lagging made from high-tech material for coffee and steam boilers. Notably increases the quality of the coffee machine and the energy-efficient.
Water & Steam System

Steam is an essential element of the coffee machine. It is crucial for making drinks that contain milk (lattes, cappuccinos, emulsions).

In response to baristas’ needs, we have developed a system with a large capacity as well as the flexibility to allow maximum control during use.
  • Excellent steam power thanks to a specific, large capacity boiler.
  • PID Temperature Control
  • Exclusive in-house technology steam nozzle in stainless steel with two positions.
  • Very long, multi-directional steam wand with thermal protection.
  • Ergonomic lever design.
  • Steam tips with a special angle and design.

Keeping Baristas Happy

In the espresso world, when we talk about ergonomics we mean the optimization of the design of the coffee machine so the professional barista can work in the utmost comfort. Basically, what we are looking for is that the barista can perform his ‘choreography’ smoothly, comfortably and happily.

Based on structured data collection, we have designed our machine in line with the different ergonomic parameters demanded by baristas to ensure that their relationship with the Barista T is a joyous one. The essential elements have been devised and designed so that the creation of an espresso coffee and its specific choreography take place in the most comfortable possible circumstances for the professional barista.

  • The Groups, The Display and The Accessories are completely visible.
  • Ergonomic Filter Holder

The filter holder is one of the most heavily used parts of the machine. It is important that the design facilitates the barista’s work.

We focused on various aspects of the handle:

  1. Designed to adapt to the palm of the hand, conveying a pleasant sense of strength and safety in use.
  2. The 10º tilt facilitates its use, allowing the hand to adopt a natural position.
  3. Horizontal resting position of the filter holder for perfect tamping of the ground coffee.
  4. The body of the filter holder has a flat base to facilitate optimum tamping.
  • Soft Filter Holder Closing Action

The precision-design of the group head and the design of the seal ring provide a smooth, streamlined and uniform feeling when coupling the filter holder to the group.

  • Steam Lever/Knobs

The lever system is the most suitable for human use in ergonomic terms. A smooth, intuitive ‘natural’ movement makes it easy to use and control. When the barista activates the cam, he can adjust the amount of steam in proportion to the level of force exerted. It can also be left completely open.

  • Steam Wands and Water Tubes in AISI-316 Stainless Steel

  1. Temperature. ’Cool touch’ (with thermal insulation). Rules out the risk of burns and offers greater user comfort.
  2. Cleaning. The cool stainless steel facilitates cleaning as the milk does not adhere to it.
  3. Mobility. 360º rotation. Multi-directional and very long. Designed to be used with any type and size of jug. We use a non-slip rubber seal ring on the wand to facilitate its movement and reduce the heat factor even further.
  • High-Precision, Easy-to-Read Pressure Valves
  • Pump Pressure Adjustable

From outside. The barista can act directly to adapt the pressure to his/her requirements.

  • Spacious Cup Warmer. Totally Accessible. (On/Off)
  • Thin Wire Rack

Designed to keep the bottoms of the cups clean.

  • Back-lit Button Pad
  • Chronometer Function
  • Work area light. (On/Off)
Keeping Technicians Happy

The machine has been designed primarily from the point of view of the barista, but we also took the technician’s perspective very much into account.

This is a nice product to repair! It is easy to dismantle with standard tools.  It has very few screws and the components are easily accessible. There is plenty of space to carry out repairs with complete assurance.

This is a key factor to consider in a high quality product.

Good design presupposes that the product can be dismantled and repaired with ease. The idea is that it will last for years and years.

It is a matter of quality, productivity and also sustainability.

We have worked on this component by component.

  • Easy access. By just taking out a few screws you have access to all the components: Solenoid valves, heating elements… everything inside the machine.
  • Steam wands. Very easy to dismantle. Easy to clean.
  • External pump regulation. Easy access
  • Electrical and electronic components protected and insulated from heat sources (boilers). Independent, unified electronic section. Easy access for repairs. The use of insulating material for boilers guarantees a ‘cool’ interior temperature and lengthens the lifespan of all the components, avoiding the need for repairs.
