How to descale De’Longhi Dedica espresso machine?

  1. To descale your De'Longhi Dedica espresso machine, start by preparing a descaler solution, diluting it with water to the MAX level in the tank.
  2. Press the ON/OFF button and ensure the filter holder is detached, placing a container beneath the hot water spout and boiler outlet.
  3. Wait until the one and two cups button lights are steady, signifying readiness. Hold down the steam button for 10 seconds until all buttons flash sequentially.
  4. Adjust the steam dial to the steam/water position, then press the steam icon-marked button to initiate descaling. The process will commence, with descaler liquid flowing from the water spout in a series of rinses and pauses until the tank is empty.
  5. Periodically close the steam dial during descaling to release small amounts of descaler from the boiler outlet.
  6. When the orange steam button light continues to flash, the machine is ready for rinsing with clean water. Empty and refill the water tank to the MAX level, replace it, and position an empty container under the hot water spout.
  7. Ensure the steam dial is in the steam/water position, then press the steam button for rinsing. The descaling process is complete when the water tank is empty, and the orange light extinguishes.
  8. Set the steam dial to the closed position (O symbol), and your appliance is now ready for use.

About De’Longhi Dedica espresso machines

The De’Longhi Dedica espresso machine will enable you to delve into the full barista experience: controlling the brewing process, enjoying the ritual of coffee-making, and producing drinks that are just as good as the ones served in a cafĂ©.

De’Longhi Dedica espresso maker models

De’Longhi, a renowned Italian manufacturer of home appliances, is highly esteemed for its innovative and high-quality products. Their Dedica series of coffee machines, which includes the EC685 and the Dedica Arte model, is a testament to their commitment to excellence.

De’Longhi Dedica EC685 coffee machine

The De’Longhi Dedica EC685 is a stylish and compact entry-level espresso machine that doesn’t compromise on performance. It features a slender design, making it an excellent choice for those with limited countertop space. However, its small footprint conceals the machine’s impressive capabilities, as it’s capable of producing high-quality coffee that rivals what you’d get from a skilled barista, all within the comfort of your home. Some of its key features include a space-saving width of just 15 centimeters, a modern slim design with a choice of four metallic finishes to suit your decor, a powerful 15-bar pressure pump for perfect espresso extraction, an adjustable Cappuccino System for creamy froth, compatibility with both ground coffee and ESE pods, and an automatic stand-by function for energy efficiency without compromising performance.

De’Longhi Dedica Arte coffee machine

Building upon the impressive features of the EC685, De’Longhi introduced the Dedica Arte, a coffee machine that combines functionality with creativity. It retains the key features of the EC685, but with an added twist – it enables you to create and enjoy latte art.

Notable additions to this model include the LatteCrema System with a dedicated milk frothing carafe, enabling the creation of silky, velvety milk foam ideal for crafting intricate latte art designs. Moreover, it features an automatic cleaning function to keep the carafe in prime condition. The machine is user-friendly with an illuminated button control panel and the option to customize your coffee experience through the My Menu setting. The unique Thermal Block System by De’Longhi ensures precise temperature control for espresso extraction, guaranteeing a consistently perfect brew every time.

Overall, both the De’Longhi Dedica EC685 and Dedica Arte espresso machines offer superior performance and versatility, providing a professional coffee experience right at your home. Whether you’re a coffee connoisseur or a casual coffee drinker, these machines are designed to cater to your unique coffee needs.

Additional Information When Choosing

When selecting a De’Longhi Dedica espresso maker, it’s essential to be aware of some key features that can greatly enhance your coffee-making experience.

De’Longhi Dedica steam wand differences

Regardless of which domestic De’Longhi espresso machine you end up choosing, each of them will come equipped with a steam wand to let you froth some velvety milk foam for your lattes or cappuccinos. The De’Longhi Dedica coffee machines are certainly no exception, but it’s worth noting that the steam wands in the Dedica EC685 and Dedica Arte models differ. The Dedica EC685 coffee machines come with a classic steam wand, while the De’Longhi Dedica Arte coffee machine boasts a professional steam wand similar to the ones used by baristas in cafĂ©s.

Coffee pods for De’Longhi Dedica

Therefore, when choosing from all the espresso machines, identify which features are important to you and based on that, seek the model that best suits your needs.
