    Excellent espresso maker, and so compact!, March 31, 2015
    By 

    This review is from: De’Longhi EC680 Dedica 15-Bar Pump Espresso Machine (Kitchen)

    If you want a genuinely excellent, attractive espresso maker at a reasonable price but don’t have a lot of room for one of the behemoth “standard” machines, the De’Longhi EC680 is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

    BASICS

    This machine requires about the same amount of counter space as a Keurig coffee machine. Technically, it’s only 2/3 the width of a typical Keurig, but you want to leave a little room on the right so that the steam wand remains easily accessible.

    The boiler on this is preconfigured to produce water that is exactly 190F, and the pump is hard-wired for 15 BAR… both of which are perfect for espresso. The machine also has pre-configured “ideal” brew/pull timings, but it still allows you to customize your pull times by simply holding down the buttons; so you can still pull Ristrettos or Longos if you are so inclined.

    PROS

    The De’Longhi EC680 produces excellent espresso! For testing and calibration purposes, I’ve used light and medium roast beans from Portola Coffee Lab and Kéan Coffee so that I can compare the exact espresso they serve with that produced by this machine. With just a little trial and error, I was able to not only produce espresso that matches theirs exactly, but tweak them to my own taste (generally by pulling the lower end of a Normale, thereby de-emphasizing the acid).

    This is the true test of a consumer espresso maker: how closely can it reliably replicate the quality of a high-end, commercial espresso machine. In this case, the answer is: shockingly close!

    The machine reaches brewing temperature in about 30 seconds. It’s impressively fast… and that’s a good thing when you consider that you still have to spend a little time doing the “warming ritual” (i.e. running hot water through everything to ensure you get a great, consistent pull).

    The machine feels very solid, well built, and well designed. In fact, it feels higher quality than many espresso makers that are much larger and/or more expensive. It’s easy to clean and maintain as well, which I very much appreciate.

    The steam wand produces excellent foam. I generally use whole goats milk, but have produced excellent foam with different varieties of cows milk and coconut milk as well. Don’t forget to throw a hand towel over the steam steam wand and prime it for a second or two before use to get the water out (basically all of the steam wand complaints on Amazon are from people who aren’t properly priming it per the instructions).

    Also, prior to buying this model, I read some reviews that complained about a lack of crema. All I can do is assume that these reviewers are using old or improperly prepared beans. As you can see in my photos, the crema I’m producing on this machine with fresh (and freshly ground) light and medium roast beans is thick, velvety, and sweet!

    CONS

    I do have a couple minor usability quibbles, but these are by no means deal-breakers.

    First, when you perform a manual pull with either the single or double-cup buttons, the machine automatically remembers that timing and applies it to every pull afterward. I wish there was a way to perform a manual pull without reprogramming the buttons!

    Second (although it isn’t really an issue for me at all), you should be aware that due to the machine’s small footprint, you can’t attach and remove the portafilter one-handed without causing the machine to tip/rock. It takes two hands… one to hold the machine steady, and one to secure the portafilter.

    Finally, I’ve found that the reservoir is very finicky with it’s seating. I move my machine in and out from a little nook on my counter, and each time I do so I make sure I push down on the reservoir to ensure it’s properly seated/sealed. It never LOOKS loose, but without that occasional push down, it will sometimes lift just enough that the machine will stop pumping water mid-pull or mid-steam.

    ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

    Although the machine has generally blown me away with it’s sturdiness, attractiveness, construction quality, and brew quality, you have to keep in mind that if you are new to espresso making, you are going to need a little extra gear to make this investment worth your time, money, and counter space. Expect to spend another $200 on additional equipment. I recommend the following items…

    1) An Excellent Burr Grinder
    Under no circumstances should you ever use blade-ground coffee in an espresso machine, and if you aren’t grinding your coffee fresh, you shouldn’t even bother with espresso. I HIGHLY recommend the Capresso Infinity 560 Conical Burr Grinder. For under a hundred bucks, this burr grinder will give you the same great…

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    Several years ago my sister-in-law got a De’Longhi Espresso Maker, a large fancy model with all kinds of bells and whistles. When visiting her for a few days she served double espressos every morning with breakfast and I thought it was the most wonderful coffee I had ever tasted. It had the crema on the top and tasted so rich that I couldn’t get enough of it. I thought it was the brand of coffee she was using, but when I went home and bought the same coffee it didn’t taste like what I had at her house, not even close. So I tried the same brand of coffee with my Barista Espresso Maker. But it didn’t produce the crema or the same taste at all. Then I decided that I would buy a De’Longhi coffee maker like hers. But the big one she had was way over my budget and I didn’t see a smaller model at the time.

    So I was very excited to see this new model espresso maker. I wondered if it would make espresso that was as good as the type she served. And guess what? It tasted exactly the same as I remember it tasting at her house. It has the full crema on the top which I’m convinced is what makes it taste so good. It’s very easy to use and comes with photo instructions as well as written. Besides espresso, it has a milk frother so we can make lattes or cappacino and instructions for those. I’ve used espresso machines in the past. In fact, we have an older Barista which has been living in the cupboard for years. The espresso it produces tastes nothing like this. And before this De’Longhi I have never really gotten the hang of frothing milk. Call me “frothing challenged” but it always turned out less than optimal and sometimes made a big mess. This machine is foolproof. It has worked every single time. I’m making lattes and cappacinos that look like they come out of some fancy coffee place or restaurant. (And the cost savings…well I won’t even go there. Even buying the most expensive coffee beans the savings would be significant.)

    For me, another big advantage is that It takes up very little space on my counter which already has several appliances which we use daily. The De’Longhi is only about 6 inches wide and fits nicely on the counter. I’ll post a photo on the main page so you can see how nicely it fits. It even has an area on the top where we can pre-heat the cups.

    We use fresh ground coffee but there are E.S.E. (Easy Serving Espresso) Pods which you can purchase if you want to avoid the mess of coffee grounds. Here are a couple types available on Amazon. illy Dark Roast Coffee Pods for E.S.E Espresso Machines and Lavazza Gran Crema Espresso, Single Dose Pods (Pack of 150) There are lots more available as well. I often make decaf espresso and I think it tastes amazing using this machine. De’Longhi definitely knows how to do it right.

    What a sleek, elegant, fabulous machine!, September 30, 2014

    This review is from: De’Longhi EC680 Dedica 15-Bar Pump Espresso Machine (Kitchen)
    My family purchased this for me for a gift from Amazon and I’m beyond pleased with this machine! First, the slim, space saving, stunning design is beautiful to behold and the machine is heavy enough that it just proclaims quality. The stainless exterior is gorgeous and easy to care for. Then to performance…I love that I can either use the pre-packaged pods or my own blend. I usually use my own blend, unless I have guests and then it’s easier for them to use the machine with the pods.

    The fifteen bars of pressure deliver the lovely crema that I expected and one can brew two cups at once, in addition to just plain hot water for tea, if you like. The frother delivers a beautiful, finely textured foam with which to top off my drinks. The frother is easy to use and only requires that you hold the container of milk steady…there is no manipulation of the frothing cup necessary to get the frother to work properly. Best of all, it’s easy to clean! I just froth plain water for a moment and then wipe the wand with a damp cloth. After each espresso I brew, I run the machine with no pod holder, so water runs freely, which serves to clean the actual brewing hub. A quick cleaning of the brewing filter holder and basket takes no time at all.

    The instruction booklet that accompanies the machine is clear, concise and easy to follow and there are recipes for almost any drink you might want to brew, with tips for success. This is truly a dream machine and gorgeous, in addition!
