The DeLonghi Dedica looks like a thinner version of the traditional bar pump machine. It aims to include all the positives known about the traditional coffeemaker but now has extra features to make it a machine worthy to be part of the modern era. It comes in a smaller, more countertop-friendly architecture, and it almost half the width for many pump-driven machines. However, it still manages to have a shoehorn in a fairly good-sized cup warmer found on its top, as well as an above-average water tank found at its back.
The DeLonghi Dedica is a Better Version of the Traditional Bar Pump Machine
Because it has a more compact footprint, the DeLonghi Dedica has to shy away from the traditional styling from a conventional pump machine. It has therefore taken its own identity while still taking pointers from its many predecessors. A noticeable difference is that the main features are usually found at the front are now found to be swivelled to the side.
There are option buttons found on the Dedica. These are for selecting steam, single, or double espressos. These are typically found on a front panel. These buttons are elevated to the chrome strip found around the top. As for the power button, it is hidden along the bottom trim and is found at the side. What this type of placement for the controls is promoting are for the sleek lines and overall minimalistic appearance of the coffeemaker, while still being able to exude a sense of professionalism.
Aside from its good looks, its main offering is that it can produce the kind of drink that would appeal to many coffee fanatics. You can use the option buttons to set the water hardness found in your area. You can also use said controls to set how hot you want your coffee to be and how long do you want the unit to stay on after use.
There’s also a boiler safeguard which is used to stop your coffee beverage from becoming scorching hot (which would otherwise prevent you from immediately enjoy your drink). There is also a removable drip tray to make way for larger cups beneath the spout. Doing so will allow you to make longer drinks with the use of the steam wand.
While it does not offer a full list of automatic functions, the DeLonghi Dedica still presents users with great-tasting coffee with the little time and effort that has been placed into the beverage’s creation. Those who are beginners to the craft may have to practice a bit to make use of this device’s full potential, but do note that the rewards are extraordinary.
