Question about Ascaso Dream Espresso Machine
I have an Ascaso Dream in aluminum finish, about 1 yr old. Steams milk great, but lately shots have had almost no crema and are black in appearance, with bitter taste. I'm using fresh Starbucks coffee ground for espresso, and I've kept up with decalcifying. When I flip on brew espresso switch, sometimes (more than 50% of the time) it makes a different noise than usual, and water leaks out of the brass nut above the water reservoir, underneath the dome top of the machine, and drips back into the reservoir. Just today I tried to tighten that nut but it actually broke off! I didn't crank it or anything. Now what?
Sounds like you have a leak in the system. If your handy, you can remove the top. Remove everything. Water tank included. Unplug the machine. Now turn the machine upside down on a towel. There are 2 screws behind the brew head. Remove them, then lift the machine off the top and set it right side up. Now you can see the inside of the machine where the boiler is. Do not touch anything inside the machine. Replace everything and plug the machine in. Now turn the machine on and try to make a shot the same way. This should show you where your trouble is. Once you see where the trouble is, unplug the machine. Contact seattlecoffeegear.com, or 1st-line.com. They can help.

Ascaso Dream water leak & bad shots
The coffee you are using has a very fine grind, therefore the water cannot penetrate the coffee puck, that is why it dumps the pressurised water back into the water tank.Try using less coffee or change the coffee type.
