This thing is seriously good.

Until I got this machine I'd never been able to re-create for myself the sort of coffee one gets in a coffee shop; didn't matter what type I tried (filter, cafetiere, steam expresso) nor which beans I bought, it never quite got there.

But this machine delivers. A wonderful range of choice of strength or type and what comes out is fresh and tasty. Really tasty.

And it's easy to use too. A wide range of setup choices and good a range of "defaults" each of which is also programmable (how much espresso, how much milk, how much froth). Work out which you like best and set the quantities which just fill your favourite cup and from then on it's just a case of put the cup in place and press a button. And if you want a change just change the settings and have a bit more milk, a slightly finer grind, a slightly stronger flavour - whatever.

I got one for my office (it sits beside my desk on top of a two-drawer filing cabinet - soooo convenient; fill the water tank in the morning, fill the milk holder, check the beans and then a fresh coffee whenever I hit the button) and within a week my wife insisted we get one for home too.

Visitors will love it - no more just "black or white?" choice - you can offer them anything they'd be able to order in a coffeeshop.

Drawbacks? Well none really; it's a tad noisy while it grinds and creates your cupful but not too annoying. It's not small but I find it doesn't intrude, either in the office or in the kitchen.

Unexpected bonuses? The frothy milk really is frothy and stays frothed (the machines where you have to use a steam nozzle to froth your milk somehow never seem to maintain frothiness).

I have wanted this ever since i got a demo in a department store, but put it off ... as it is 'quite expensive'. I did have a Tassimo Nespresso Machine, that i thought was great, but it is quite wasteful, (and anything but the coffee was awful most notably the 'Late' discs). However it did the job of a reasonable coffee quick, easy and Much better than instant rubbish.

So wanting more i upgraded to a cheap and cheerful (under £30) espresso machine. it was great, good coffee - but.... It was a bit of a faff to do, and clean. Then it broke after about a week.... but it did enough to prove i really wanted nice coffee........

Then i saw the Prima Donna... what a beauty, relatively small and it does everything.... full programmable to your cups and strength, it cleans itself, it even turns itself on in the morning to heat up the tank and your cups. I'm sure you can probably program it to do your ironing and pick up your shopping if only i could find the function.

This thing is amazing and worth the money for what it does..... it comes down to how you justify it.... I figure you spend more on a sofa and a TV... and neither of those help get me up in the morning...

You can spend half the money on a REALLY nice manual one... but you'll never use it as you have to faf about with grinding and cleaning...

but then i am lazy.....

Quite simply this machine has no equal on the domestic market. It is the answer to the problem of making quality expresso coffee every time. We have tried a series of machines from the quixotic "chrome peacock" to the workaday "pod" machine, but this is far, far superior.

With this machine, you simply pour the coffee beans in one end, press a button and a perfect cup of fresh expresso coffee emerges within seconds with a perfect (and delicious) "crema" every time. It is highly adjustable, so for example, you can select "long" or "short" expresso, and you can easily vary the strength(6 options) just by pressing a single button.

If you take milk in your coffee, the jug system is ingenious and simple to use, again using a single button. It effortlessly produces that wonderful, creamy, thick foam that you normally only see in commercial outlets. Moreover, it does this within seconds for cup after cup, eliminating that tiresome fuss experienced with lesser machines. The result tastes like a professionally-made cappuccino or latte.

More prosaically, it tells you (on the small electronic screen) when to empty the coffee grounds or fill the tank (both very simple procedures). It also rinses itself when you switch it off. It looks good too: it is a quality item, well made with very high specification chrome and plastics. It is not too big: it has plainly been designed to sit comfortably on a domestic kitchen work surface and it does so very happily, without looking disporoportionate.

In short, while this machine is obviously expensive, it produces commercial quality coffee with a fantasic crema and/or foam at the touch of a button, consistently, and without fuss. If you love expresso coffee, it is well worth the money.

I can only agree with the other (good) reviews, no problems so far (Bought Dec 2008)
Just one niggle, the nozzle that you slide the milk jug onto, needs lubricating LIGHTLY with SILICONE GREASE (Available from a SCUBA Diving Store), this makes the jug "glide on" instead of pushing the whole machine around the worktop as you attempt to push the jug into place.
