    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?

          And how expensive is the cool touch wand (just out of interest)

          AND... a new water container?

              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.

                The cool touch is about $40.

                New water container?

                  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.

                  C - 4 hole coffeeparts tip, angled.

                  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.
