LOL, anybody heard of the Rossa Portaspresso? Fairly strong whiff of plagiarism imho.

I'll stick with my Flair, thanks, although one day perhaps a Cafelat Robot

Ooh I didn't know about the Flair.  Is it any good, and how does one get one in the UK?

The Flair is very well made, simple in operation, is capable of good, genuine espresso and has the bonus of being pretty user-friendly.....as usual, a good grinder brings out the best in your beans.  My Flair is part of my travel kit for work ( 2 weeks away in the middle of nowhere at a time). 

Doesn't have to be a huge outlay for a good grinder, I find the MBK range are excellent value - the Aergrind is a very good little travel grinder and the Feld2 is very easy to use and fit for purpose. I do recommend avoiding the manual ceramic burr grinders unless you love spending an awful lot of time grinding, lol!

....there are so many choices tho that it can be daunting, comes down to budget and personal preferences really.

If you want espresso on the go I would thoroughly recommend the Flair, I also pair it with a Feld and the combo often produces better espresso than my VBM HX.

Two weeks away in the middle of nowhere... What bliss that must be...Shame that the W word had to creep into the previous sentence
