Gee come on guys ;D
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
Gee come on guys ;D
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......
Ive never used a 4 hole stem tip.........im keen to experiment with one.....should i buy one to have a play, what should i expect? anyone :-[

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...
My machine comes standard with a 4 hole steam tip
I have posted a how to use method for it here
There is also a video on the method & its results by CS member Oton form Spain (post # 30)
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.
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...Originally Posted by 1612342D2D2837202F410 link=1260164789/8#8 date=1260237230
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...
Thats interesting KK - my Galatea Domus only has a 2 hole tip.Originally Posted by 644049494A4A7064405C42402F0 link=1260164789/6#6 date=1260233353
Maybe the Bezzera factory changed the spec ??Originally Posted by 6A7F5A766A64776077050 link=1260164789/10#10 date=1260444993
Anyway I like my 4 hole steam tip now that I am its master
