Overview

Coming in hot at just under 7 inches wide and 13 inches tall, the DeLonghi Dedica is dedicated to bringing you delicious espresso using minimal counter space and a budgetary price-tag. This fiercely fast machine rises to brewing temperature in under 40 seconds, and needs only 12 seconds more to reach the optimal steam temp for milk frothing. Delonghi's Dedica machine offers an array of brewing options with its included selection of removable brew-baskets. Use the single-shot basket for those laid back days when just a sip'll do ya, or swap in a double-shot basket when you need a little extra boost. The DeLonghi Dedica EC 680.M also includes a pod-friendly basket in case those free-flowing grounds just aren't for you. If you're on the hunt for delicious espresso at a low price point, the Dedica Delonghi EC 680.M will feel like bringing home a gold medal.

Features and Functionality

  • Cup Warmer - Preheat your espresso cups on the Dedica's over-head hot plate to seamlessly transfer your hot espresso to a heated cup.
  • Versatile Brewing - Brew with your single or double shot basket to savor your favorite pre-ground or ground up whole bean blend, or brew with the handy E.S.E pod basket for a less messier way to brew.
  • Descaling Mode - The Delonghi Dedica will let you know when it's time to descale and has a full descaling mode, so you don't have to manually flush water and descaling solution through the machine.
  • Programmability - Compact yet limitless! Okay maybe not limitless.. but the water temperature can easily be adjusted with settings for low, medium or high. Additionally you can adjust the Dedica's stand-by mode (9 minutes, 30 minutes or 3 hours), and create settings for your home water hardness (soft, medium or hard) to create an all around better tasting cup.
  • Stainless Steel Panarello - If your favorite coffee drink involves any combination of milk and espresso you can easily fine tune the Dedica's programming to create the best version of it yet–cup after cup. Easily froth and heat milk for a delicious milk based drink, or access hot water for tea, hot cocoa or an Americano.
Pros
  • Communication is key! - Each brew basket features a handy symbol on the bottom that tells you if the basket will hold a single or double shot's worth of grounds; or an E.S.E pod.
  • Superbly Slim - A fully functioning espresso machine, that also offers milk frothing capabilities, in a super slim and compact size? Yes, please!
  • Included Accessories - The Dedica arrives at your doorstep ready to brew with it's pressurized portafilter, three filter baskets (single, double and E.S.E pod compatible) and the all in one scoop/tamper. All you need is your favorite ground coffee or E.S.E pod to begin the brewing magic.
Cons
  • Pressurized Baskets Only - The Dedica only includes pressurized baskets, and non-pressurized baskets are not currently available.
  • Weightless Machine - This compact and travel friendly machine is light on the shoulders, but lacks the weight that some machines carry with purpose for staying grounded while twisting the portafilter on and off.
How Does it Compare?

The DeLonghi Dedica is a great entry level machine and should also appeal to those that want to brew espresso at home, but aren't concerned with learning all of the technicalities more advanced machines have to offer.

Tips and Tricks

Surfs up, dude! If you like to steam your milk before brewing, don't forget that temperature surfing is an option to quickly lower the boiler's temperature and get the Dedica back down to its ideal brewing range. To begin this nifty trick, place an empty cup under the panarello and turn the steam dial to the steaming position. The Dedica's panarello will begin dispensing a mixture of steam and hot water and will automatically stop once it has reached its ideal brewing range.
