Excellent coffee grinder, delivers great results
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

This is a quality product, the grinding is absolutely perfect. Just 2 niggles otherwise would have been 5 / 5.
1] well made but larger than it needed to be
2] difficult to extract the beans if, for example, you wanted to remove caffeinated to replace with decaf. A faff

Grinds fine enough for my de'longhi dedica

Grinds well to all specific degrees of coarseness and finess. Not too loud, doesn't take much room and looks great on my kitchen worktop paired with de'longhi dedica coffee maker. Very happy with the purchase

Pretty, brilliant control, and excellent results...
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I'm running this grinder alongside a decent bean-to-cup machine, and a filter coffee machine; the ground coffee from the grinder went into the filter machine, and also into a french press for comparison.

The grinder itself is quite lovely. It's got a brushed steel effect housing, and looks stylish on the counter. It's not something you'll be ashamed to have visible in the kitchen. The mixture of that steel finish with the LCD screens works very well aesthetically.

The hopper at the top is a bit plastic, but works well enough. It seems to hold about 300g worth of beans in one go, so you can go a while between top ups. It seals well, meaning that beans left in the hopper should stay fresh. It's worth noting that the grinder is a burr type, supposedly producing a better result than blade-type grinders. When the grinder runs, it's noisy, but the appliance itself is extremly stable. I'm *fairly* confident that even a persistent cat on a worktop couldn't knock it over, for example.

The LCD display is clearly legible, and provides a reasonable amount of information, including the fine-ness of grind selected, and the number of cups. The grinder will only grind the number of cups you set it to, which means you don't have to use all your beans at once, which is rather handy. In this context, 'cups' as a measure seems to be the equivalent of espresso cups. I was grinding 2-4 cups worth of beans to generate two standard sized mugs of coffee.

The number of options for grind are impressive, with eighteen gradations, inside broad categories like 'Espresso' and 'French Press'. I'm not sure this degree of fine control is strictly necessary, but it does mean you can get your beans ground pretty much exactly as you like them. Working out how you actually like your grind is a bit more of a trial and error process though!

Both the amount of beans to be ground (cup selector) and the grind fine-ness selector are analogue wheels, and feel sturdy; I'm always worried that a touch screen or other digital

A grind for every occasion

Dedica Coffee grinder.
A electric coffee grander which allows you to grind beans to suit the coffee you are making.
This has 18 grind sizes, ranging from very fine and powdery for the perfect espresso at number 1 to the much courser grinds for a french press at 18.
Ease of use
It couldn't really get much simpler, the machine switches on, you fill the bean holder on the top, turn the dial on the side to the amount of cups you are grinding for (1 to 14),turn the dial to the grind size ( which is conveniently marked up not only with the grind size, but also with what this size is best for), select the strength by pressing the little bean button on the control panel and press the arrow button to start the grinding.
The control p[panel keeps you informed of what is going on, if you run out of beans it stops and flashes the symbol that means the bean holder is light, if you remove the grind catcher it , once again flashes the relevant symbol and lets you know what the problem is.

Build quality
Build quality is excellent, this is a pretty expensive piece of coffee making kit and Delonghi have invested in the quality of their components to justify the price.
The machine is impressively shiny and attractive, it looks the part shall we say.
The pieces go together perfectly and are engineered to be tightly fitting to keep the grind and the beans as fresh as possible.
Buttons and dials are smooth in both appearance and use, the control panel is easy to read and responsive to commands, as a result you are aware of exactly what the machine is doing at a glance.
The removable parts were easy to clean in a little warm, soapy water, a little brush is provided to keep the grinding cogs clean too.
The shiny outside of the machine did show every fingerprint, but these soon polished off with a soft cloth.
