Features & Functionality of the Pasquini Livia G4 Automatic Espresso Machine with PID

  • Volumetric Programming: With programmable buttons that take away the fear of over extracting your shot, you're free to focus on chatting with your guests or steaming up milk.
  • PID: Adjust the brew temperature and steam temperature independently, giving you the ultimate control over the outcome of your beverages.
  • Simultaneous Brewing and Steaming: Being a heat exchanger, the automatic Livia G4 can pull double duty by brewing and steaming at the same time.
  • Steaming and Hot Water: Lever operated steam and hot water adds an extra layer of control. Pressing up on the steam lever gives you constant steam, while pressing down on the lever gives you momentary steam. The hot water lever provides momentary hot water in either position. Ball joints on each provides easy movement.
  • Hefty Portafilter: The redesigned G4 portafilter maintains the sturdy feel of its predecessor. The basket size is a respectable 58mm.
  • Serious Water Tank Capacity: The 92-ounce, removable water tank lets you brew shot-after-shot without frequent refills. A weight sensor for sensing tank depletion has replaced the electrical sensors of the Livia 90.

A shopper asked: What are the drawbacks to the Stainless Steel Boiler, I noticed most machines around this price like the Rocket for example have a Brass/Copper Combo, I'm a little worried that the stainless will be inferior in terms of longevity as well as efficiency?

Is brass copper that much more superior then stainless?

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: There are actually a variety of machines that use stainless steel boilers rather than brass/copper, such as the roughly $7,000.00 double boiler La Marzocco GS/3! Aluminum boilers are inferior in terms of efficiency and longevity, but both stainless steel and brass/copper boilers are good options. The Livia G4 's stainless steel boiler will not retain quite as well as a brass and copper version would, but the difference is not great, and longevity will not be compromised with stainless. Hope this helps! Mar 7, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi, can you tell me what this machine comes with? Mar 3, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: This Pasquini Livia G4 machine includes the portafilter and baskets, along with a very lightweight plastic tamper that you would likely want to upgrade to something heavier in 58mm. You will still need additional items like a frothing pitcher, shot glasses, a knock box, tamping mat, and, of course, a grinder and beans! :) Mar 4, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The tallest cup that you can fit under the Pasquini Livia G4 is about 3 3/4 inches. Feb 24, 2014

A shopper asked: he video seems to demonstrate very fast double shots, around 13-15 seconds. Is this normal or perhaps the tamp was not sufficient, or the grind too coarse? Nov 23, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The shots on the G4 were not 30 seconds long timing wise, but did come out in about 20 seconds when we made that video. Timing should begin when you press the button, and liquid flows just a few seconds after that, however you can't quite see that in the video. Regardless, the shots tasted pretty great, and timing should fall in the 20-30 second range. You are correct that for a longer extraction, tamp could be a bit firmer, and/or grind a bit finer. Hope this helps! Nov 23, 2013

Cathy D asked: Is the G4 set up for pre-infusion? What sort of grouphead does it have? Nov 16, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: No, the Pasquini G4 does not have an automatic pre infusion, unfortunately. It has a 58mm portafilter in the brew head, but there is not a standard name for the type of brew head it offers. I believe you are asking this question because some other machines have what is referred to as an E-61 brew head. The G4 does not have this style of brew head, and E-61 brew heads are really the only standard style of brew head machines across some brands offer. Hope this clarifies, but let me know if you have any other questions! Nov 16, 2013

Great Machine brings back the art of latte

I used a Pasquini Livia from 1991 to 2004 when I purchased a Jura Capresso S7 super Automatic machine. That machine was totally automatic making espresso and americana's but allowed you to froth your milk manually letting you control the foam and temperature. It died after giving me great service for 10 years and nearly 11,000 shots. I tried the new Jura and was very dissatisfied with the temp of the milk that was now dispensed in auto mode with no manual option. Milk came our at only 130.F and I sent it back.

So I went back to a Pasquini since the one I bought in 1991 is still serving my daughter after 23 years. My new G4 Auto is more work but delivers great Lattes and brings back the art of espresso making. it does take some trial and error and experimenting, but once you get it you'll love it. The Auto feature works great giving you the volume of shot you set it for every time

Seattle Gear offered me the best price for it, after extensive searching all over the net, well below the list price and had it delivered in a very timely manner.
