DeLonghi EC685 Dedica review


Stylish and compact ; Utilizes both ground espresso and ESE pods ; Convenient way to have a variety of espresso drinks at home ; Feels like a professional piece of equipment

Instructions can be difficult to understand ; Espresso flavor tends to be on the lighter side

De'Longhi EC685M Review

Can’t make espresso straight after steaming milk ; Tricky to fit two cups under spout ; Some dripping after espresso is poured

Terrible machine


This machine simply squirts out water when it's trying to warm the milk up in which it is making the milk diluted in my hot chocolate giving it a terrible after taste.

Proper coffee


"Having persevered with instant for many years, was tempted for a pod machine. However with some research I decided to go down the traditional pump way. No regrets. This machine is well thought out and is of robust construction. Some reviewers have...

Excellent machine


"Very happy with this. Makes a lovely espresso. I was a bit apprehensive about the fact it has single and double espresso buttons (rather than on/off button) but was pleased to find you can customise the time water is pumped through for both options...
