This is a great unit for the home enthusiast. I can not figure out why these things cost so much compared to other pieces of kitchen equipment, tool
Positive Product Points
This is a great machine. It allows the user more control over the final brew. Plenty of pressure, steam, temperature.
Negative Product Points
I wish the steam wand had a commercial style "ball & socket" so that it could be swiveled into additional positions. The pump is a bit on the noisy side.
After purchasing a Gaggia Classic, which is really quite limiting in it‘s capabilities (an unfair comparison to the Livia 90), the dealer Whole Latte Love allowed me to return the unit in exchange for the Livia 90. I paid $1200 with factory mods and shipping included.
