Review Rotor Coffee Machine DeLonghi EC 685 R DedicaI, like many, have gone from instant coffee to ground coffee. In the beginning there was a Turk, but either my hands are growing from the wrong place or it’s just not mine, it didn’t take root. Then a geyser appeared, which delighted our family much longer, but for some reason the coffee was different from the kind that we often bought in coffee houses. And at some point, the realization came that it was necessary to get hold of your own coffee maker at home.
Today I propose to talk about one of the most popular drinks in the world. The overwhelming majority have probably revived by now, but no, we are not talking about beer.
Let’s talk about coffee and one of the many devices that can properly prepare it.
Surely many of you prefer to start your morning with a cup of aromatic, freshly brewed coffee. At least for me, if the day begins without coffee, then this is already a ruined day.
In the world, millions of studies have already been conducted 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 already sounds good. 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 the abuse of coffee.
Naturally, we are talking about natural coffee, and not about its dubious analogue in sticks.
Currently, the selection of coffee makers is simply huge.
They are mainly divided into:
Rozhkovy coffee makers
In fact, these are some 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 coffee makers. You don’t even need to grind and ram coffee in them. We just buy capsules, insert, press the button and coffee in the 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 dab the coffee herself, and shake up the milk and clean herself.
After reviewing them in more detail, I concluded that they differ, although seriously, but coffee is prepared almost equally tasty. At the moment I have dismissed the capsule ones for myself, since I did not want to get attached to certain capsules. And despite the fact that coffee makers themselves are cheap, capsules for them are not very cheap. And having calculated in the perspective of the year, the amount turns out to be impressive. Choosing an automatic espresso machine didn’t fit my family budget. Only carob remained, of which I chose.
As the saying goes “We thought, and my wife decided”, our choice was on the rotor coffee machine 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, technical characteristics, country of production, and all sorts of little things in several languages are also indicated.

There are also many functions, such as: automatic shutdown, warming cups, Cappuccino system, steam supply adjustment, temperature programming and others.
The coffee maker is controlled by 3 buttons on the front panel, the coffee-to-steam switch and the power button on the bottom right side.
It is extremely easy to use. Pour water into a special compartment. Pour the ground coffee into the horn, trample it 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, easily whip the milk into a froth until 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 an expresso.
The water tank is also easily removable for easy cleaning. For myself, I noticed that you need to buy good water, without wild mineral composition, so that all small holes are not 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. One fine morning you will be informed about this by a blinking yellow lamp and the refusal of the coffee maker to make you coffee. The cleaning process lasts about 20-30 minutes (according to the sensations), so that the morning will be guaranteed to be spoiled. Fortunately, he rarely asks for cleaning, at least from 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 will be complete for the first cleaning.
It turned out to be an extremely irreplaceable thing for my family. 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 the small kitchen. We use it every day, but only in the morning. Whatever one may say, it takes time to make coffee, although not very much. Laziness does not allow making 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 very useful. So I was not mistaken with the choice of the coffee maker. And there you can choose what you like best. Fortunately, at the moment, the choice is colossal.
