Pasquini Livia G4 Commercial Espresso Machine - semi-automatic


  • Pasquini Livia G4 Commercial Espresso Machine - semi-automatic


    The Pasquini Livia G4 espresso machine replaces the discontinued Pasquini Livia 90 semi-automatic that was produced for over 15 years. The G4 brings a refreshing, new stylistic fortitude to the United States' home enthusiast.

    There are improved features over the Livia90. Most importantly, the brain unit is located on the floor of the unit where there is the least amount of detrimental heat that could affect the motherboard. This feature alone will save a lot of replacements of motherboard.

    Second, the grouphead is actively heated by a separate heating element as opposed to the passive heating (through metal) of the grouphead on the Livia90. The steam wand is cool touch. Finally, the G4 has a dual gauge: one for boiler pressure and one for pump pressure.

    Additional Notes:

    1. Water choice: Please use softened water. This means no magnesium and no calcium in the water. This is different than filter water which typically only removes sediment, bad taste and bad odor. Some filters do have limescale inhibitors which is better than a filter without. Distilled water or reverse osmosis water can cause overfilling/leakage or not allow the machine to heat/operate normally.
    2. Initial startup: It may take 90 seconds for the machine to fill in the internal boiler. While filling, please check to see that water level in reservoir is dropping. If it takes longer than 120 seconds, please stop the machine and call the service center as the pump may have an air pocket which needs to be cleared when the machine is cold.
    3. Pressure gauge: Many customers tend to read the pump pressure gauge when the machine is sitting idle. The only time the pump pressure gauge has relevance is when extracting. If it is under 8 bar, the coffee grind may be too coarse or there is not enough coffee in the basket. If the pump pressure gauge goes over 9 bar, then the coffee grind may be too fine.
    4. Grouphead: This machine does have a heater in the grouphead so the water is reheated there before it extracts the ground coffee.
