    GPP steam tips

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Has anyone tried the 4 hole steam tip option? and also does the GP tips fit on the GPP or is the cool touch diameter an issue, here are the listings on Coffee Parts : http://www.coffeeparts.com/ecm/ecm-spare-parts-5.html.

    No issues with the current tip, just curious. Even if you havent used it and want to make a comment, feel free, what effects will this have on the milk, better/worse for large/small quantities etc pros/cons etc

    Cheers guys and gals

    I cant see how the 2-hole tip that comes with the GPP can be improved upon Warren. I get lovely textured milk, effortlessly, just about every time.
    I can only guess that the best a 4-hole would offer would be that it is as good as the 2-hole. What are you thinking/hoping you might achieve?

    just fiddling flynn, you know how it is ;D i get restless......I had a laugh i do get great results from the 2 hole, just wondering if the 4 hole would be a little kinder to smaller volumes of milk. twice the flow = less force and all that......

    Hi WSully,

    You will find that the quality of the swirl is degraded and you will run out of steam rapidly. This tip is designed for 1L+ jugs on machines with large boilers.

    My recommendation is to just enjoy your machine...

    I dont have a Giotto but have both a 4 hole and a 2 hole tips.
    The 4 hole is crazy and you can only get good results using the method KK mentioned above. The 2 hole is soo much easier.

    Re: GPP steam tips

    So generally speaking, the holes on a 4 hole tip are smaller to allow the same flow as a 2 hole? would this be correct?

    cheers for the replys so far guys
    ;)

    Erm nope...Its 4 x the same diameter on the 2 hole tip...

    The Bezzera holes are finer but the Giotto tip is better IMHO. A Giotto tip will go on a DG, so I presume that the reverse applies...
