Great machine

Sherri F, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: Love this machine. Makes beautiful microform! Works great with pods too! You do have to buy an extra adaptor for the pods and I wish in the description of the product they would have clarified that!

The Livietta T2 DIdn't Work Out

Nicholas N, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I was so excited to get a new espresso machine but the Livietta T2 isn't the machine. It's a very nice looking machine but really doesn't have the power to froth mike to a smooth paint thickness, nor did it have enough heat to properly make a shot of espresso. At first I thought I didn’t warm the systems enough, so after thirty minutes I tried again with the same poor results.

Pasquini Livietti T2 Espresso Machine

Ann Catherine Gagnier, Amazon
18 February 2013
  • Summary: This is our Third Pasquini livietta T2 Espresso Machine, We have been happy in the past but this machnie arrived broken. It leaked everywhere the first time we used it. So we returned it to Pasquini as that was the terms of the Guarantee and we expected to get a new one in return but no it was rebuilt and it has been nearly three weeks now and we are still waiting for the Coffee Machine. I ordered and paid for a new machine not a repaired one.

Great coffee machine for the right user

Jan Klier, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: This is a nice compact machine for people willing to spend the effort and time to make a great coffee. It requires having a decent grinder so you get just the right texture, don't expect it to work great with store ground coffee. It has separate blocks for brewing and steam, a requirement for any good machine, and it heats up nice and quick. Good for making your morning coffee every day. One thing I liked in particular compared to other machines I used, is the steamer.

Great customer support

Mad, Amazon
12 September 2012
  • Summary: I have had this machine for four years and it was magic. It never gave me any trouble and consistantly provided a delicious cup of espresso or capuchino. In May I hit the switch and click nothing happened. Heart sank. Called their customer service. Mike was so incredibly helpful. He provided local service reps but they didn't respond so out it went to la for r and r. It came back brand new. Mike called and emailed status and cost and delivery .

DO NOT BUY,

W. PERKINS, Amazon
19 September 2011
  • Summary: I own this machine, and paid $850.00 thru an illy coffee program. It was great for the first 2 years, then the steamer quit! A one year warranty?! Pasquini was NOT sympathetic, they don't care if you send it in, in fact they don't encourage it, though by golly, they'll sell you some over priced parts. They want YOU to do all the trouble shooting. Once you open this machine, you'll soon realize it takes some specialized tools, to boot.

Excellent Espresso Machining and Design

hartlink, Ebay
5 February 2011
  • Summary: This is the swiss watch of espresso machines- A rebranded Olympia Maximatic. Every part is beautifully machined and almost all parts are still available for these units at orphanespresso. A good used Olympia will out perform and outlast a similarly priced new machine. We love ours and bought this third one for my sister in law.

And I thought I was a coffee snob before! :)

T. Dalton "doccrock", Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: My Saeco Vienna Superautomatica just bit the big one a few weeks ago, so I got to upgrade to this bad boy, and Oh, my, goodness! Best espresso of my life!!! Takes a bit of practice, but here's the way to get the best out of your machine: 1. Preheat your machine for 2-5 minutes. Place a couple of demitasse cups on top of the machine to heat them up and make sure you have either filtered or bottled (calcium free) water in your water tank. 2.

Solid, very compact, tidy

b2020, Amazon
5 May 2010
  • Summary: I have had my Livietta T2 for two years and am very happy with my purchase. It's an extremely high quality machine with solid, heavy components and yet a remarkably small footprint (preserving relative marital harmony. It has easy-to-access inside components, so anyone with the desire to do so can easily and intuitively take apart the insides for routine cleaning and maintenance. The machine is made in Italy, near Milan.

Pasquini Livietta

Consumer Democracy
27 August 2008
  • Summary: This was a great machine. It was the smallest Pasquini, and now has been replaced by one twice its size. Machines have gotten higher tech, but I keep coming back to this one, because it's all brass and outlasts all the aluminum-based machines, like Gaggia. Pasquini USA is local here in LA, and they have been very helpful in providing minor parts and keeping it going, though their service is pricey.
  • Pros: It's built like a tank
  • Cons: Steam is a little wet
