    Variable aperture steam tip

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Anyone seen these? Just found it on the Lyn Weber website when reading up on the EG-1 Grinder.

    Would be interesting to see how they operate in the real world, not sure about the fan tail tip?

    Surely the tip would be a pain to clean, what with all those rotating bits?

    Thoughts?!

    Not sure if im allowed to post a link, so just look up the Lynweber website and look for the variable steam tip.

    Hooley dooley. Call it $160 landed? I'd want it to shout me a beer too....

    I think they were the lot flogging those airtight coffee jars in a fancy wooden container or something for a ridiculous price.

    For $160 you could buy like 10 blank tips and drill out whatever holes you wanted in them.

    Yeah same one Noidle, and the Single Dose test tubes for bean storage. All great concepts, but not sure of real world application... I do like there designs though the EG1 + HG1 look like pieces of art.

    Doesn't only partially opening the steam valve (on the many machines that have them) effectively accomplish the same thing?

    Certainly does, seems like an expensive solution to a non existent problem.
