    Other wands are available. You will be able to replace the tip with a standard 2 hole 10 mm tip or you can replace the entire wand with a Minore II cool touch wand which has a fantastic 2 hole tip (at a price ;))

    Ive changed the steam arm on my Expobar Leva to the Minore cool touch one and like it (mostly for the cool touch).

    adharvey why are you considering changing tips?

    I have an Expobar Office as well. I have two different steam tips that I have bought, plus the original. I bought a 2-hole conical steam tip from Coffeeparts and it is great for microfoam. Is suited to smaller jugs, especially the 300mL and can still do the 600mL okay. I also bought a 4-hole tip from Coffeeparts for when I am doing a larger number of consecutive coffees. The 4-hole tip is extremely fast and as a home barista wouldnt want to use it in anything under 600mL, which is what I use it for.

    Coffeeparts stock the 10mm female-threaded tips, which is what you are looking for.

    Ive got 3 steam tips at the moment on a normal steam wand (not cool touch)

    A - standard minore (mk1) 2 hole, larger diameter than B. Slight angle on the holes.

    B - small diameter two hole coffeeparts. Straight.

    [/img]

    C - 4 hole coffeeparts tip, angled.

    [/img]

    C gives me huge bubbles, and I find the pressure drops off in the steam boiler too quickly. I havent used it more than a dozen times, so the big bubbles are due to me.

    B is far too slow for my liking.

    I like to use the standard steam tip (A). I can steam up a storm of microfoam with a 350ml jug (~140ml of milk).

    Ive got both the two hole and four hole from coffeeparts and deffinatley get better microfoam from the 2 hole we really only use the four hole for functions and stuff where time is at a premium. the cool touch is fantastic though deffinatley recomended.

    Hi

    A quick question, why do you want that?
    A 4 hole tip will create a better more consistent whirlpool in my exp.
