De’Longhi EC680 : it has been good to us

Great matchine for coffee lovers that don’t want the pods.

I know it’s low level and i shouldn’t have many complains. Milk frothing is actually good, but coffee is just far too weak. I was tempted by many reviews how good it is for this price, but i ended up making two double shots to have small coffee mug. It’s a better idea to add another £100 and buy higher model that wo last years.

Bought this machine to replace my previous de longhi machine that gave up after many years of good service. Programmable to deliver the right amount of coffee at the right temperature to suit. Makes a really good coffee and takes seconds to be ready from start.

Arrived quickly, looks lovely. Found it a bit tricky to use first off but youtube came to the rescue.

Superb coffee machine, stylish looking and makes perfect coffee, decent price too.

First coffee machine, instructions fairly easy to follow, makes nice frothy milk if microwaved first.

Have it now for nearly 5 months, it was a bit tricky to master double espresso, and temperature settings so we reverted back to original set up. Once we had to clean it of lime scale with special solution. It was at the end of january and we thought that it will be asking to be cleaned every month but now the machine is ok for longer. We are generally happy with it. It is used on a daily basis as we have a coffee lover in the household.

Smart design, a really nice addition to the kitchen. I use ground lavazza coffee (suitable for all machines), and the espresso comes out hot and with a thick layer of foam.

Delonghi Premium Pump Coffee machine EC680.R

The Dedica (EC680) from De’Longhi is a must for any budding barista taking their first step into domestic pump espresso machines. You can make an array of hot beverages, and using the manual milk frother you can make the perfect lungo, latte, cappuccino, or other milky drink. It produces 15-bar restaurant and coffee house standard coffee in the comfort of your own home.

All aspects of a typical professional pump espresso machine (like the ones you see in your high street coffee bar), such as grinders, filter holders, and steam pipes, are found working inside the De’Longhi Dedica EC680. The traditional milk frother allows you to impress your guests by manually frothing the milk whilst making them the ideal cappuccino or latte.

I can even go that far to say that it has even changed my life/ my mornings are so much better with dedica in my life.

This machine makes a superb cup of coffee, quickly, easily and with no mess. Great value for moneyuse lavazza coffe for best results (though this is only our favourite choice).

Easy to clean, easy to set up the different modes, makes coffee quick, makes up to 5 coffees until you need to let it cool down, water tank holds water for ~6 coffees or so, milk froth works great.

A bit difficult to insert or remove the coffe holder.

I have got the red version (deep red cherry colour and nicer than the dull red you see in the picture here) and it is eye catching in the kitchen as it looks really good and fancy. But, it does splash a little bit around the cup then you have to clean the cup tray here, the drip tray, the boiler outlet up there and on… so exhausting that i have come back to using my kitty bialetti moka cafetière for an easy life.

A lovely coffee machine, easy to clean, compact, can fit it in a small kitchen, pleased.

Great with already grounded coffee. Better if filled with bottled water rather than tap water.

Making my perfect cappuccino.

De’Longhi EC680.R Dedica Coffee Machine with 15 Bar Espresso Pump – Red

I am very pleased with this machine. Better to use a milk frothing jug larger than what is suggested though.

A good entry level coffee machine for beginners. Only comes with pressurised portafilters which means that you can get away with a poor grinder and bad tamping. I had to replace it after 18 months due to low pump pressure which was disappointing.

This machine does produce a crema because it has a “crema device”. But this is my first espresso machine so it’s fine for me for now.

I am a total coffee addict, and this machine is brilliant. I bought it because i hated all those little capsules i was getting through, first with dolce gusto, then nespresso. And i also worked out that, if i buy coffee from aldi (their java is great) each cup only uses about 10p worth of coffee. So the saving per cup fairly quickly adds up to the cost of even an expensive machine. Well, it does if you drink as much as i doa few days ago i got a flashing light on my machine, and thanks to all the people who responded to my question. Turns out it was asking to be descaled. I followed the advice from another reviewer and poured a bottle of white vinegar into it and ran the descaling programme (there’s a good youtube video if you look – although they use the proper, expensive descaler), followed by flushing it through with fresh water. I think the next time it happens i will see if diluting the vinegar also works, but for now it’s back on top form. Highly recommended – and definitely better than littering the world with little plastic capsules.

This is great little coffee machine. The steamer for milk could do with being longer though.

Really pleased, easy to use and keep clean. Minimum fuss, makes a lovely coffee.

. Amazing coffee machinethank you.

Seems much better than the earlier model i bought which dripped constantly.

I got this machine few days ago and never used to prepare coffee myself before. Ever since i got this machine, i’m able to comfortably prepare my morning and evening coffee. And it also made me think of different flavours to keep my coffee delicacy alive. It’s really worth the money.

Excellent machine, got this as a present for my parents as an alternative to their cafetiere. Easy to use, produces good coffee and doesn’t take up took much room on the side. Froths milk well and gets up to temp quickly.

Excellent very quick and easy to operate and at a excellent price.

Traded in my gaggia classic and down sized to this delightful piece of kit. It does all it should without eating up a whole worktop. The pump frother is producing perfect cappacinos and when i forget to turn it off it shuts itself down. No regrets other than not having got one sooner.

Good service machine works perfectly and the coffee tastes great.

I have this machine for 6 weeks and i make 4 espressos a day and no problems. I will update my review later on to give a review on its stability.

First machine had a problem with the main switch. Contacted de longhi who diagnosed fault immediately. I organised a replacement through amazon and it arrived the following day. Easy to use, takes up very little counter space, and produces great crema.

Easy to use, takes little space, makes delicious coffee, not much to complain about.

Well worth the money, takes a bit of getting used to however once you find your preferred coffee and measurement all is fine.

Superb does everything i need.
