Pasquini Livia G4 Commercial Espresso Machine - Fully-Automatic PID
The redesigned Pasquini Livia G4 espresso machine is a replacement for the discontinued Pasquini Livia 90 series that was manufactured for 15+ years.... The G4 brings fresh, new style machine to the home espresso enthusiast.
There are well designed improvements over the Livia90. Most notably, the CPU is located on the bottom of the unit where there is the least amount of residual heat. Excessive heat could affect the units motherboard. Therefore this improvement alone will have a positive impact on machine maintenance.
Additionally, the grouphead features a dedicated heating element as opposed to the passive heating (through metal) of the grouphead on the Livia90. The newly designed steam wand is cool to the touch thereby preventing accidental touching of a hot wand.
a) Show only the programmed temperature all the time, or
b) show the actual temperature reading.
Most manufacturers choose 'b' so the customer knows the actual water temp during the extraction of espresso. This leads some customers to believe that the temperature should always be correct. In fact, it is the contrary. As cold water enters the brewing system when the pump is engaged, the temperature will drop faster than the heating element can recover the programmed temperature. This is normal event as much as with a heat exchanger machine with a boiler pressure gauge whereby the needle will drop a little while extracting espresso. The range will vary over time based on the temperature of incoming water, ambient temperature, and other variables.
This machine has a heated grouphead, thereby the water is reheated there before it extracts the coffee grounds.
