Quick Overview

It may be following in the footsteps of the Livia 90, but the Pasquini Livia G4 isn't taking any handouts! With a very serious set of upgrades, such as an actively heated group head and a thermostatically controlled heating element (pssst - this means better brew temperature stability, leading to more consistent shots), the G4 is set to make a name for itself.

It may be following in the footsteps of the Livia 90, but the Pasquini Livia G4 isn't taking any handouts! With a very serious set of upgrades, such as an actively heated group head and a thermostatically controlled heating element (pssst - this means better brew temperature stability, leading to more consistent shots), the G4 is set to make a name for itself.

Choose the basic semi-automatic or give yourself even more control by choosing the PID configuration, which allows you to adjust the brew temperature and steam temperature independently.

Features & Functionality of the Pasquini Livia G4 Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine

  • Simultaneous Brewing and Steaming: No need to wait for your shot to finish brewing before you steam up your milk. The G4 is a heat exchanger, so you can brew and steam at the same time.
  • Steaming and Hot Water: The addition of levers for steam and hot water gives you more control, compared to the Livia 90. For steam, pressing up on the lever gives you constant steam, while pressing down on the lever gives you momentary steam. The hot water lever provides momentary hot water, whether in the up or down position. Both are on ball joints, allowing for easy movement.
  • Dual Needle Gauge: The all-in-one gauge allows you to view boiler pressure and brewing pressure at the same location. Note: The PID version has a single needle gauge.
  • Hefty Portafilter: The Livia G4 portafilter has been redesigned, but maintains the sturdy feel of its predecessor. Curious about the basket size? It's a respectable 58mm.
  • Serious Water Tank Capacity: The 92-ounce, removable water tank the G4 is sporting allows for shot-after-shot brewing without constantly refilling. It also features a weight sensor, instead of electrical sensors, for sensing tank depletion.
  • Cup Warmer: Pre-heating your cup is an important part of excellent espresso production, which is why the G4 features 22% more passive cup warming space.
  • Boiler Autofill: You can't go wrong with a feature that protects your espresso machine's precious boiler!
Pros
  • Heat Exchanger - The ability to steam and brew at the same time is a big plus, decreasing the time it takes to make your lattes.

After much research, I bought the Livia G4 semi-automatic w/PID control. Not only did Seattle Coffee Gear offer it at a much lower price then anywhere else, I happened to purchase it when they were offereing a 20% sale off Pasquini products (talk about a savings).
I also watched all of the videos provided by the company (love you Gail) which helped me in determining which grinder (Rocky Rancilio -doserless) and I bought an Espro calibrated tamper.
The service was outstanding, and I received the order in less time then anticipated. Right out of the gate I have been able to produce beautiful expresso shots, and the steamer produces the the perfect microfilm. Thank you SCG for wonderful customer service and all the helpful videos you provide.

Downsizing our Espresso Machine

In downsizing from a home with room for a LaMarzocco Linea for sixteen years and moving to a home with a significantly smaller kitchen, we had to relinquish our fabulous machine for a smaller footprint device, one which we think falls into the "gap" catagory. Not quite commercial in capability, but close enough to provide necessary features for great espresso, cappuccino and even hot water dispensing. We were familiar with the Pasquini line for many years and had knowledge of their sound reputation.
Broadly shopping we found online presentations very useful, especially that of Seattle Coffee Gear. We purchased a semi-automatic G-4 from them since we prefer semi-automatic espresso extractions. To date, we have been extremely pleased with the features and operation of this machine, especially the automatic water refill into the boiler from the rear reservoir. With proper heat-up time, the espresso has been very good, the steaming capability excellent and with ease, and we appreciate the occasional hot water dispensing.
The value for the price is excellent. We also appreciate the customer service at Seattle Coffee Gear. Highly recommended!! And don't forget to purchase a cost-effective knock-box from them, too.
