DeLonghi EC 680.R Dedica espresso machine (household goods)

Customer Review

I am for a long time owner of DeLonghi EC 680 satisfied except for a few points.

- Compact
- Filter holder and filter inserts seemingly made of stainless steel
- Screens are clamped in the filter holder and not fall out
- Quickly ready for operation
- Programmable cup capacity

- Only Crema screens
- Resolved No halfway decent Tamper
- Paranello for frothing milk

Now to my more detailed description of the machine.
So far everything is going so far as well. I grind my beans fresh with a Graef CM 702 in the filter holder and drink but mainly Cafe Crema (or referred to as Schümli). For espresso, I use a Hario Mini Mill hand Mill.

The coffee is hot, the pressure is good. The milk can be good lather.

The machine is operated with the ghastly Crema Seven. This is about double wall screens, which make up the back pressure and so produce a certain Crema. Often referred to as "Fake crema". Quasi, that "Everyone" with little exercise, it gets back.
Let's be honest: A Siebträgermaschine means now even exercise! But for that you get from these machines far better coffee than from all fully automatic in the world, let alone capsule machines.
On a forum has been described that the single-wall screens should fit the company Graef ([...]) However, only the 1 Series sieve. The 2-cup does not quite fit into it because the plastic frame in the portafilter. I tested all yet, but I'm going to definitely establish these screens and then possibly write about my experiences.

It must also be getampert. For the supplied plastic spoon Although sufficient halfway, but really he is not fit. Here was in the forum topic where I have to do with the Seven ago recommended this 51 mm Tamper (redirect = true & ref_ = oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00) which fits perfectly into the screen and what I ordered directly.

The last criticism is the Paranello. That's a Milchaufschäumhilfe that works, but only conditionally generates good milk froth. This is best done with a simple steam nozzle, such as at the Rancilio Silvia. But Ok, now that would be bleating at a high level but because I would like to try myself at latte art, the Paranello is somewhat counterproductive. Unfortunately, the only machine in this price range that has a steam nozzle, the Krups XP3440, which I got sent back because the machine is simply awful through the "Krups Tampering System"

Very nice is the way that the screens are professionally clamped with holding clips in the filter holder and not fall out even when tapping ... now if you do not want to necessarily beat full force.

So after I now a long time use I would like to add a few things, the machine here.
I have the Crema screens can grind around the corner at the shoemaker, which is roughly 10 minutes and me 3 - cost. Nunkann I even see through the holes and the screens now work properly and allow me a much better use of the machine. Of course one must not forget that this requires some practice to figure out a decent espresso, and especially the screens are designed as Crema screens. A completely perfect espresso is it therefore do not get it, because the single-walled Siebträgersiebe are designed a little differently.

Since I can later insert any more photos here in this review, for whatever reason, I link here the images on ImageShack.

Once an image of the abraded screens: [...]
And once a picture of an espresso with these seven: [...]

When beans I have a 75 ': 25 Arrabica Robusta used mixture, which I myself have roasted (Sumatra Gayo and Indian Cherry). The amount by weight agrees currently not quite because I still try around with freeness un lot, I still waiting for my fine balance to the beans for a shot be weighed.
