There are undeniably classic pairings that stand the test of time (pass the milk and cookies, please!) and Delonghi has taken this one step further by combining a duo so perfect, it rivals the most classic of romances. Step aside Romeo and Juliet, coffee and chocolate are here to stay! The Delonghi Primadonna Exlusive not only creates delicious coffee and milk based drinks with the touch of a button, but it also has an exclusive carafe specially designed to heat and mix chocolatey drinks. Pair that with the large LCD screen and almost infinite programmability options, the possibilities become endless…and delicious!

Features & Functionality of the DeLonghi PrimaDonna Exclusive ESAM6900.M

  • Color LCD Screen - The Exclusive features a large, vibrant colored LCD screen where the programming happens and alerts warn you when something is awry. Door ajar!
  • True One-Touch - With the stainless steel milk carafe attached, this machine is a true one-touch. Easily select a pre-programmed drink from the chocolate, caffelatte, cappuccino, latte macchiato or long coffee button.
  • Cup Warmer - Nobody likes a cold cup of joe! Set your cups on the warming shelf prior to brewing.
  • Find Your Grind - Dial in your ideal grind with the grind adjustment knob located in the bean hopper, or use the bypass doser to enjoy your favorite pre-ground blend.
  • Hot Water Spout - Removable hot water spout doubles as a manual steam wand for controlled frothing.
  • Removable Water Tank - The 48 ounce water tank is conveniently removable for easy filling and cleaning.
  • Programmable Coffee Strength - Choose from six different coffee strength options: pre-ground, extra mild, mild, standard, strong and extra-strong.
  • Stainless Steel Milk Carafe - Attach the stainless steel thermal milk carafe and choose from three automatic frothing options. Once frothing is complete, don’t forget to choose the clean function for automatic purging of the milk spout.
  • Hot Chocolate - Keep the kiddos happy and hopped up on sugar with the hot chocolate function. Fill the separate hot chocolate container with milk and the chocolate of your choosing, insert the chocolate container into the machine and watch the magic happen! Milk is steamed, chocolate is melted and it all blends together in delicious harmony.
  • Customizable Profiles - The Primadonna Exclusive features six programmable profiles, each associated with a different color. Now if only we could add our Wii Mii characters…
  • Programmability - Easily program your ideal coffee temperature, water hardness, auto-start and auto-off time and volume of coffee to be brewed. Stay tuned for the upgraded version, that will attempt to read your mind.
  • Long Coffee Function - This unique function, only offered on the Primadonna Exclusive and the Gran Dama 6700, essentially brews a full cup of drip coffee directly from the coffee spout. As close to drip coffee as an espresso machine can get!
  • Chocolate Function - We can't say enough good things about this function! SCG suggestion: brew a double shot of espresso and froth some hot chocolate. Add hot chocolate to your espresso instead of regular frothed milk - your taste buds will thank us!
  • Easy Clean Milk Container - All parts of the milk container are dishwasher safe, except for the stainless steel casing. The casing can be easily rinsed off and wiped down for maximum cleanliness.
  • Extra Hot It's Not - Like many superautomatics that utilize milk carafes for automatic frothing, the milk doesn't get exceptionally hot. If you like the hottest of hot lattes or cappuccinos, this machine may leave a little to be desired.
Tips and Tricks When using the hot chocolate function (and we know you'll be using it a lot!), we suggest adding chocolate in powder form for the best overall consistency.

I'm deciding on buying the Delonghi PrimaDonna Exclusive but i'm having concerns about the machines milk and coffee temperature.has anybody actually taken a temperature reading? How does the PrimaDonna compare to other Superautomatics in its category?
Papester on Mar 23, 2014
I am looking to buy this machine but want to confirm the width of the machine including the drip tray. Is it truly 16.5 inches long? Or is it longer when you include the drip tray?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2014
Best Answer: We love the machine tho it takes a bit to set up. The length includes the drip tray.

how to warm the cups?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2016
Best Answer: You can put them on top of the coffee maker although we don't usually do that. We usually take our cups right out of the dishwasher in the morning for coffee. We have it programmed to turn on just before we get up. We love this coffee maker! We generally drink double cappuccino in the morning.

Performs as DescribedReview by Steve
This is a very nice machine and a big step up for me. Before the Delonghi I used a Rancilio Silvia PID. It worked fine for me but my wife never wanted to mess with it. With the ESAM6900 she can make her coffee and Cappuccino every morning. I like espresso, and shots delivered out of this machine are very nice once you get the grinder dialed in. I bought mine when Delonghi was running its 20% off sale. I also signed up for the mailing for additional savings. Watch all the reviews on the web. They will help you make a decision. the chocolate feature does work and if you have the correct mix you will get Italian Style hot Chocolate. No sample was included with my unit however. The manual does NOT include the dosages per setting. It does include the fluid amounts but is missing the coffee amounts. Foamed milk is cool to warm as others mention. For what I wanted it for it works very well. Setting profiles specific to each user is a nice feature and one that sets the 6900 apart from some of the others.

Great machine - Milk could be warmerReview by Marc
I have had this machine for about a week now. So far it has preformed flawlessly. Makes a great cup of espresso. Easy to operate and clean. The insulated milk container is a plus. The only con is like most automatics the steamed milk could be hotter. I read on some of the foreign boards (Australia and England) that Delonghi provided them with a grommet that reduced the flow of milk and thus increased the temperature. I found the grommet on a Delonghi site in England but not here in America. Also the part is not available for shipping to the US.
So other than the milk temperature isuse this is a fantastic machine. (Posted on 3/6/2014)
