Review of the DeLonghi EC 685 R Dedica carob coffee maker

I, like many oth­ers, went from instant cof­fee to ground cof­fee. At first there was a Turk, but either my hands grow from the wrong place, or it’s just not mine, it didn’t take root. Then a geyser appeared, which pleased our fam­i­ly for much longer, but for some rea­son the cof­fee was dif­fer­ent from the one we often bought in cof­fee shops. And at some point it came to the real­iza­tion that at home you need to have your own cof­fee mak­er.

Today I pro­pose to talk about one of the most pop­u­lar drinks in the world. The vast major­i­ty have prob­a­bly perked up now, but no, it’s not about beer.

Let’s talk about cof­fee and one of the many devices that can pre­pare it prop­er­ly.

Sure­ly many of you pre­fer to start your morn­ing with a cup of fra­grant, fresh­ly brewed cof­fee. At least for me, if the day starts with­out cof­fee, then this is already a ruined day.

Mil­lions of stud­ies have already been con­duct­ed in the world on the effect of cof­fee on the human body and on its mood in gen­er­al. Rumor has it that cof­fee con­tains antiox­i­dants that remove free rad­i­cals from you and me, which in turn slows down aging, which does not sound bad. Who does­n’t want to be young longer. Also, caf­feine, which is rich in this noble drink, has a stim­u­lat­ing effect on the entire body. But do not for­get that all these advan­tages are received only by healthy peo­ple with­out cof­fee abuse.

Nat­u­ral­ly, we are talk­ing about nat­ur­al cof­fee, and not about its dubi­ous coun­ter­part in sticks.


Cur­rent­ly, the choice of cof­fee mak­ers is sim­ply huge.

Basi­cal­ly they are divid­ed into:

  • Horn
  • Cap­sule
  • Auto­mat­ic
Carob coffee makers

In fact, this is one of the sim­plest cof­fee mak­ers. You your­self take the cof­fee that you like, grind it (or buy ground), tram­ple it into the horn, press the but­ton and lo and behold, the cof­fee is ready.


These cof­fee mak­ers are even sim­pler and cheap­er than carob ones. They do not even need to grind and ram cof­fee. We just buy cap­sules, insert, press the but­ton and cof­fee in a cup. Of the minus­es, the choice of cof­fee is lim­it­ed to cap­sules that are pro­duced for a par­tic­u­lar machine.


The eas­i­est to use, but also the most expen­sive. She will grind the cof­fee her­self, shake the milk and clean her­self.

After review­ing them in more detail, I con­clud­ed that although they dif­fer seri­ous­ly, cof­fee is pre­pared almost equal­ly tasty. At the moment, I dis­missed cap­sules for myself, because I did not want to become attached to cer­tain cap­sules. And despite the fact that cof­fee mak­ers them­selves are cheap, the cap­sules for them are not very cheap. And hav­ing cal­cu­lat­ed in the future of the year, the amount is impres­sive. The choice of an auto­mat­ic cof­fee machine could not stand my fam­i­ly bud­get. Only carobs remained, and I chose from them.

As the say­ing goes, “We thought, and the wife decid­ed”, our choice was carobcof­fee mak­er DeLonghi EC 685 R Ded­i­ca


The cof­fee mak­er is packed in a card­board box, in which it lay very tight­ly in a foam case. On the pack­ag­ing, in addi­tion to the image of the cof­fee mak­er itself, the tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions, the coun­try of pro­duc­tion, and all sorts of lit­tle things in sev­er­al lan­guages ​​are also indi­cat­ed.


  • Cof­fee mak­er
  • Instruc­tion
  • Horn with noz­zles for 1 and 2 brewed cups, as well as for a pod.
  • Tem­per
  • Khim­ka for clean­ing

Brief characteristics

  • Type: horn
  • Pow­er: 1350W
  • Hous­ing: met­al
  • Pres­sure: 15 bar
  • Water con­tain­er: 1 liter
  • Con­trol: semi-auto­mat­ic
  • Dimen­sions (HxWxD): 33x14.9x30.5 cm.
  • Weight: 4 kg

There are also many func­tions, such as: auto­mat­ic shut­down, cup warmer, cap­puc­ci­no sys­tem, steam con­trol, tem­per­a­ture pro­gram­ming and oth­ers.


To con­trol the cof­fee mak­er, there are 3 keys on the front pan­el, a lever for switch­ing from cof­fee to steam and a pow­er but­ton on the right side at the bot­tom.

It’s extreme­ly easy to use. Pour water into a spe­cial com­part­ment. Pour ground cof­fee into the horn, tram­ple down with tem­pera. We fix the horn, turn on the cof­fee mak­er, wait a cou­ple of sec­onds until it heats up, and press the but­ton with the cup. The aro­ma of fresh­ly brewed cof­fee is incom­pa­ra­ble.

By turn­ing the switch to the steam posi­tion, we eas­i­ly froth the milk to the con­sis­ten­cy we need, or you can sim­ply dilute it with hot water.

This mod­el has a remov­able tray so that you can place a larg­er cup than for espres­so.

The water tank can also be eas­i­ly removed for easy clean­ing. I noticed for myself that you need to buy good water, with­out a wild min­er­al com­po­si­tion, so that all the small holes do not get clogged and the cof­fee mak­er brings you joy for a long time and with­out inci­dent.


After a cer­tain time, it will need to be cleaned. This will be report­ed to you one fine morn­ing by a blink­ing yel­low lamp and the fail­ure of the cof­fee mak­er to make you cof­fee. The clean­ing process lasts about 20–30 min­utes (accord­ing to sen­sa­tions), so the morn­ing will be guar­an­teed to be ruined. For­tu­nate­ly, it rarely asks for clean­ing, at least for me. Most like­ly, it is nec­es­sary to clean after a cer­tain num­ber of cups.

How this is done is described in detail in the instruc­tions. Khim­ka for the first clean­ing will be includ­ed.

How to get?

You can buy such an assis­tant in the kitchen, as well as famil­iar­ize your­self with sim­i­lar ones at the links below.


For my fam­i­ly, this has been an essen­tial item. For the full 3 years of use, there were no prob­lems with it. Small in size and styl­ish cof­fee mak­er has tak­en its place in a small kitchen. We use it every day, but only in the morn­ing. Like it or not, it takes time to make cof­fee, although not much. Lazi­ness does not allow you to make cof­fee all the time. Using the exam­ple of my friends who have an auto­mat­ic cof­fee machine, I know that they drink cof­fee 6 or more times a day. Which, in my opin­ion, is not of much use. So I was not mis­tak­en with the choice of cof­fee mak­er. And then choose for your­self what you like best. Luck­i­ly, there is a huge selec­tion right now.
