Who Is it Designed For?
The Delonghi Dinamic Plus Ecam370.95.T matches perfectly with lazy people that want your coffee to taste the same at the touch of the button.
It can be a valid option also for small offices where there’s no time or particular needs other than a caffeine kick to continue their day.
Overall, you can have fun with this machine as there’s a lot to play with it. Also, you can get out some good fresh coffee thanks to the conical burrs featured.
I would not say that you can make excellent speciality coffee with it but for sure it does the job.
You can make good coffee if you want though by making your recipe and then save it so you can replicate what tasted good to you.
Here are a few simple steps to achieve a good result:
- Dose your coffee beans and weight out how much liquid you get into the cup: only by writing down some recipes you can then compare them and make something that tastes good;
- Use filtered water (never tap water): I wouldn’t suggest you use their filtering system. Some good water is more than enough;
- Steam your milk directly: I wouldn’t blame at the frother of this machine but if you want to lift the game a bit, use a french press to froth your milk or use a little milk frother. The result will be much much better;
- Adjust the brew temperature: start brewing at 93° C (with light roast coffee profile) for an optimal brew temperature. Check with a thermometer if it’s really what you’re getting out as brewing with the right temperature is key.
The Delonghi Dinamic Plus Ecam370.95.T comes in black and is for sale from £850.
