|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.
