More DeLonghi Reviews From The Coffee Maven

DeLonghi Dedica Grinder

DeLonghi Dedica Grinder
Overall Rating: 87
With conical burrs, an easy-to-use digital LCD display, a sizable 12 oz bean hopper, and 18 grind sizes to choose from, the DeLonghi Dedica is great for daily drip coffee use, but you may want something better for espresso.

DeLonghi Magnifica XS ECAM22110

DeLonghi Magnifica XS ECAM22110
Overall Rating: 91
The smaller version of the DeLonghi Magnifica, this Magnific XS is more compact and a little more basic, sacrificing the dual-boiler system for a single boiler. Still, few super-automatics are better values than the XS.

DeLonghi Dinamica ECAM35020

DeLonghi Dinamica ECAM35020
Overall Rating: 89
A very popular, mid-range model, the DeLonghi Dinamica is a sleek, compact super-automatic with 20% more hopper volume than competitors. Its simple design belies its strong build quality, making the Dinamica a great value.
About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
