Pasquini Livia 90 Semi-Automatic [PAS-L90-SEMI]
Home and Light Commercial Espresso/Cappuccino Machine - one of the most popular espresso machines for its capacity to be used equally well in the home, office, coffee bar, and restaurant and catered events.
Borrowing from Pasquini’s famous line of professional espresso machines, it is one of a select few machines of its type that can simultaneously brew coffee and steam milk, saving time and increasing the rate of drink production. These features, in addition to it NSF Sanitation Certification, (required for machines used in the foodservice industry), make it an espresso machine for all venues.
Simple Semi-automatic Controls and Indicator Lights - Simple to use and easy to read controls make brewing with the Livia 90 a joy. Heavy-duty rocker switches and two attractive indicator lights are conveniently located on the front of the machine. One flip of a switch gives you the green light and the power is on.
The orange light lets you know the boiler is heating. In addition to these simple controls, a pressure gauge, just below the control panel signals when optimum pressure for brewing has been reached. A gauge on the front of the machine monitors the pressure in the boiler and indicates when the machine is at the optimum pressure for brewing espresso or frothing milk. It also aids in making adjustments to the boiler pressure if needed.
Frothing Milk & Dispensing Hot Water - The Livia 90 provides great steamed milk, without waiting for the brewing cycle to finish. A chrome plated brass steam pipe on the left side of the machine brings the steam down to the frothing tip. You have two tips to choose from, a more traditional commercial tip of stainless steel and a second tip made of Teflon. This second tip is a froth enhancer for making no nonsense foam. Small holes on the side of the tip draw in air and direct it into the milk. Instantly you’ll have foamed milk for any number of lattes or cappuccinos. A turn of the knob located conveniently on the right, and hot water is yours, instantly. It’s great for tea, hot chocolate, and cup warming, or adding a splash of hot water to an espresso for a Café Americano.
Rugged Portafilter - The Livia 90, heavy-duty, hard working portafilter is made of chrome plated, cast brass. The comfortable grip is rugged molded plastic for easy handling and insulation.
3.5 Liter Water Tank - The large capacity, fully removable water tank makes volume coffee production easy. Perfect for coffee bars or restaurants, this tank doesn’t require constant refilling. The tank can be filled while it is operating or pulled out and taken to a faucet. For added protection for pump and boiler, it features a built-in particulate filter to stop damaging bits from going through the system.
Brawny Pump System - The better and strong the pump, the better and stronger the espresso. This powerful pump provides steady, continuous pressure to produce full flavor extraction and a thick espresso crema.
Resilient Electrical System - Tailored for heavy use, the Livia 90 can be left on all day, due to its power supply and stable electrical system. The machine is always ready to brew espresso or steam milk. The system heats up the boiler in less than 8 minutes from morning’s first power-up and then it’s good to go all day long.
Removable Cup Tray, Drip Pan and Cup Warming - Both the polished steel cup tray and the sturdy plastic drip tray are easy to remove and clean. Proper heat is essential to a good cup of espresso and the Livia 90 has included a stainless steel warming plate, located on the top of the espresso machine, to make sure the espresso doesn’t lose temperature when poured into a cold cup.
1.5 Liter 1200 Watt Copper & Brass Boiler - Who wants to wait for an espresso? No one! With one of the biggest boilers for a machine this size, the Livia 90 has no problem making espresso and steaming milk at the speed or in the quantities you desire. It features rapid heating and recovery as well. To insure long life and protection against over heating and burnout, the boiler is equipped with a safety feature called Auto-Refill. This system keeps an eye on the water level in the boiler and when the level falls below a certain point, the computer controlled water level system automatically adds more water. If the machine should run out of water and the Auto Fill system was unable to refill the boiler, the computer will automatically turn the machine off to prevent overheating and damage to the heating element. What’s more the Livia boiler features an over pressure relief valve, which serves as a backup to the boiler pressure regulating system.
Durable, Quality Housing & Frame - Constructed to last for years of regular service, the Livia 90 is built with heavy gauge metal, anti-rust and corrosion protected frame with an exterior housing of polished, stainless steel.
No Special Plumbing or Electrical Requirements - Just plug it in and it’s ready to operate. The Livia cannot be plumbed to a water source.
With purchase, the Livia 90 comes with two filter baskets, one for single shot and the other for double shot, a blind filter basket for back-flushing, a brewing group cleaning brush, coffee tamper, measuring spoon, Polycaf espresso machine cleaner and a full color instruction manual.
