A perfect version of the traditional bar pump machine, the Dedica aims to incorporate all that is amazing about this kind of coffee maker, but with few extra specs and in a little, more worktop-friendly plan.

It is almost half the width of most pump-driven machines yet still manages to shoehorn in a best-sized cup warmer on top and a sweet water tank at the back.
Features that would generally be at the front, such as the steam wand’s control, have been swivelled around to the side.
The option keys for picking single or twin espresso and steam – which are typically found on the front panel, have been elevated to the chrome strip around the top, while the power key is discreetly hidden along with the base trim at the side.
This promotes the sleek lines and lowest look of the machine while still maintaining an expert style configuration.

The process begins with you picking either the one or twin filter or the ESE filter – each is helpfully embossed on the underside to stop mix-ups – and then inserting it into the holder, which is packed with ground coffee and tamped down until it is level using the separate presser, unless you have an ESE capsule, definitely.
Pick ground coffee, and it is difficult not to spill it, while if you favour less mess, capsules are the way to go.
Getting the filters in and out of the holder is tricky, as the fitting is strong, and it is wise to make sure fingers are well out of the way.
The filter holder is then inserted and twisted into the machine – again, the fitting is snug and needs a pretty effort to secure it.
