Overview

Every good home barista knows the size of the machine shouldn't be the deciding factor, the features are what counts! Coming in at just under 7 inches wide and 13 inches tall, the DeLonghi Dedica is dedicated to bringing you fast and tasty espresso when it counts. This fiercely fast machine heats up to its ideal brewing temperature in approximately 40 seconds and heats up to its ideal steaming temperate in about 12 seconds. The Dedica also offers an array of brewing options with its removable brew baskets. Brew with the single shot basket for those lighter espresso days and move up to the double shot basket for those, "I gotta have espresso, and I gotta have lots of it!" kind of days. Want delicious espresso without all of the mess of free-flowing grounds? Brew with the Dedica's E.S.E pod basket and simply toss the used pod for an easy clean-up!

Features and Functionality

  • Programmability - Small doesn't always mean option-less! The Dedica allows you to program the water temperature (low, medium or high) for hotter espresso, adjust the amount of time until the Dedica goes into stand-by mode (9 minutes, 30 minutes or 3 hours) and set your water hardness (soft, medium or hard) for a better tasting brew.
  • Stainless Steel Panarello - Easily froth and heat milk for a delicious milk based drink, or access hot water for tea, hot cocoa or an Americano.
  • 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.
  • Cup Warmer - Store a few espresso cups on top of the Dedica for a toasty drinking vessel when its time 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.
Pros
  • Fool Proof Brewing - Each brew basket features a handy symbol on the bottom to remind you if it's a single, double or E.S.E basket.
  • 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 - Ok, so the Dedica is not weightless, but it does lack the substantial weight that most espresso machines posses to keep it grounded when 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.
