Pros and cons

According to our semi-automatic espresso machine expert
  • Pros:
    Brew 2 cups of coffee at the same time with the included 2-cup filter.
  • Pros:
    Preheat your cups on the heating plate so that an espresso cools off less quickly.
  • Pros:
    With the hot water function, you can easily make a cup of tea or preheat your cup.
  • Con:
    Note: it takes time and patience to learn how to make flavorful coffee, and it's a lot harder than with a fully automatic espresso machine.
  • Con:
    You'll have to buy a bean grinder before you can use it, since it's not included.
  • Con:
    The small 1-liter water tank has to be refilled regularly.

Product description

The De'Longhi EC685.R Dedica Red takes up little space on your countertop with its narrow size. Brew 2 espressos at the same time with the double filter holder, or use the single filter holder to make 1 espresso. With the steam pipe, you can foam up milk for a cappuccino or latte macchiato. The double drip tray is specifically designed for placing small and large mugs. Do you want to make room for a large mug? Easily remove the top layer of the drip tray. If you have little time in the morning, you can also use ESE servings in this espresso machine. This allows you to quickly and easily make a cup of coffee with a coffee pod.

Tip: don't forget to buy a separate coffee grinder for making coffee with freshly-ground beans.

  • Pros:
    Looks great
  • Pros:
    Great coffee
  • Pros:
    Easy to use
  • Con:
    Cup plate scratches easily

Love this machine. Looks great and makes tasty coffee. The only con I have is that after the first use I already had a scratch on the cup plate. Now, of course, this is normal use. But it was like that first scratch on your new car ;)

  • Pros:
    Easy to use
  • Pros:
    Can be used with pads and grounded coffee
  • Pros:
    Small
  • Con:
    A lot of plastic, which makes it look cheap
  • Con:
    It's a bit unstable due to its light weight
  • Con:
    Frothing is a challenge

It's an excellent product for its price. I managed to brew tasty coffee in no time. The most challenging part for me is to froth milk, but since I have no experience, perhaps it's not the machine's problem. It's elegant at first sight, but it has some plastic parts, and it's light, which makes it feel cheap.

  • Pros:
    Adjustable height.
  • Pros:
    Easy to use.
  • Pros:
    Slim form factor.
  • Con:
    The plastic tamper is awful.
  • Con:
    Noisy.

All I wanted was a reasonably priced, easy to use, small coffee machine that would fit tall glasses. This one checks all the marks.

Additionally, you can set different water temperatures and different quantities but the out-of-the-box settings work just fine.

You can use ESE pads, but you'll find out that they are expensive and the brand variety is very limited.

The water tank is on the small side, but I find it enough for a couple.

  • Pros:
    Great espresso
  • Pros:
    Great streaming pressure
  • Con:
    Streaming wand could higher end
  • Con:
    Filter in basket comes out too easily

For the price there isn’t a better machine out there. It has always made an impressive cup of coffee. I’m often dissatisfied compared to coffee I order in restaurants compared to this machine.
