“When we left the northwest for a new life in southern California several years ago, my husband and I never knew that the thing we would miss the most was our daily espresso connection. We were desperate to duplicate the morning eye-openers and for me, a personal escape in the afternoon. Using our professional experiences, (I was a barista and he owned an Italian restaurant), we started searching for an affordable machine and quality ingredients that we could use in our home.
After some trial and errors, we settled on the Pasquini Livia 90 espresso machine. It’s semi-automatic and was similar to the one used in the restaurant. We needed an uncomplicated machine that was fast and easy to maintain for my husband and I was looking for consistency in the shots as well as a powerful steam wand. This machine provides all of the above. We get a perfect thick “crema” each time, which proves quality to me and we can use the steam wand while brewing. No one wants to keep a husband waiting for his espresso in the morning, ” says Judy Mills of Palm Springs, California.
“Surprisingly, with the Pasquini, there is no need for special plumbing for commercial outlets. We have our own grinder also to assure a very fine consistency” says Mills.
