CRAFT YOURSELF A GOOD CUP OF COFFEE
Imagine having your own barista right there in your own kitchen, making your perfect cup of coffee at any time you like and as often as you like. Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?
Professional baristas demand perfection in each detail when making coffee. Dosage, grinding, brewing pressure and temperature are parameters that need to be exact to make that perfect cup of coffee. With the Craft coffee machine we have transformed the barista's expertise into techniques and algorithms, all designed to brew the perfect coffee for you. It is just like a dream come true.
ASKO’s Craft range is of the same blood as in all other Scandinavian inventions. True craftsmanship and a tradition of rational and practical problem-solving. When Scandinavian inventions are crossed with Scandinavian design, magic emerges, as in the case of ASKO’s brand new coffee machines in the Craft range.
WHY DO YOU NEED CRAFT COFFEE MACHINE?
GET THE PERFECT MILK FROTH
A perfect froth has a temperature of 60-65 degrees Celsius. The microbubble foam should be soft and shiny, and look more like ordinary milk than hard, dry froth. We do that!
SAVE YOUR FAVOURITE COFFEE RECIPE
A smart and convenient feature is the My coffee setting which allows up to six persons to individually design and save their special coffee recipe allowing them to enjoy the same great of coffee from time to time.
FULL-TOUCH AND FULL-COLOUR DISPLAY
The ASKO Craft coffee machines comes with a unique full-touch and full-colour display with a cleverly designed interface that supports exploration and fine-tuning of your coffee.
UNIQUE DESIGN FOR PERFECT FIT
Uneven edges and gaps between appliances and kitchen cabinets makes a kitchen look less attractive regardless of overall design. We have unique design, with solid one-piece metal frames with seamlessly folded edges - to bring out the best of your kitchen.
IT ALL STARTS WITH AN ESPRESSO
A well-made shot of espresso is the foundation for so much of the good stuff in life. It might be the focal point of your morning routine, or the thing that provides the flavour and character for your favourite coffee drinks. Or it might just give you a well-earned chance to take a break, enjoy the company of friends or family, and cherish the moment.
ASKO’s premium integrated coffee machines have been designed and built to deliver the perfect espresso, from the luxurious crema on top to the last rich drop of coffee – as well as so much more besides.
IT LOOKS GOOD TOO
Good taste is characterised not only by what it delivers but also by its exterior. The Craft coffee machine is perfectly co-designed with the other products in the Craft range and is nicely integrated with both the 45 and 60 cm ovens.
The Craft coffee machine is the smart way to explore new coffee types or simply enjoy the same perfect coffee day after day. And the best thing is that you don´t need to know anything about making coffee – only what you are craving for.
EXPLORE OUR RANGE
THE INSIDE OF OUR COFFEE MACHINE IS FILLED WITH TRADITION
In Italy, coffee drinking is almost like a science and there are codes for when and how to drink every type of coffee. In the rest of the world we have come to love the Italian coffee, even though we might not be as strict on the whens and the wheres. Nevertheless, there are some underlying theory that we at ASKO have taken to heart when developing our Craft coffee machine.
FRESH COFFEE BEANS
The Craft coffee machine bean container comes with an air-tight lid to help preserve the freshness of the beans. The container is large enough to avoid constant refilling, yet small enough to keep the beans fresh for as long as they last.
BEANS SHOULD BE GROUND, NOT CUT
The Craft coffee machine uses a high quality conical burr grinder, which crushes the beans into the same granulate size. This helps to release the aroma from each coffee grain to extract the full range of flavours from the beans.
HUMANS ARE DIFFERENT. SO TOO ARE COFFEE BEANS
The Craft coffee machine automatically adjusts the grinding size of the beans depending on the type of drink you have selected.
GOOD COFFEE REQUIRES CLEANLINESS
A true barista always takes great care to keep their equipment clean. The design of the Craft coffee machine minimises the residual coffee inside the machine and improves the taste of your freshly brewed coffee.
It is easy to pull out the coffee machine to access the bean and coffee powder compartments and the milk jug, as well as the cleverly designed cup shelf on the side of the machine. All parts that come in contact with coffee beans, coffee powder or milk are easy to dismantle and clean. There is also an automatic cleaning program to make your daily coffee taste even better.
As we wanted to create a minimalistic design for our new coffee machine, we put most of the parts behind the front cover. But, as a clean coffee machine is the key factor for delicious coffee, we also wanted to make the interior parts easily accessible.
WIDE DRIP TRAY
The drip tray is wide with room for several cups of coffee and prevents any spill from getting on your floor or mat. It is just as easy to remove as the other parts of the Elements coffee machine.
DISHWASHER-SAFE MILK CONTAINER
As always, keeping the gear clean is essential for making good -tasting coffee drinks. The milk container is easy to clean, and the inside part is dishwasher-safe.
EASY-CLEAN BREWING UNIT
The brewing unit is one of the most important parts to keep clean. You release it by pressing the two red grips with one hand. Take to the sink and rinse it, replace it in the machine – and you are done. Cleaning doesn’t get much easier than this.
