Steam-tastic - Four hole steam tips for office dual leva

Recommended Posts

I could get a good microfoam with the single hole tip but it takes quite a while to do. I tried the expobar two hole replacement tip and although it was much faster but could never get good results.

 

N.B. I had previously adjusted the steam pressure on my machine to slightly over 1.2bar from the stock 1bar

 

I noticed BB had a steam tip set for the Alex Duetto and asked if they would fit my machine and Claudette replied quickly that she had tried it for me and they did indeed fit (great service as usual).

 

I ordered the set and have been trying out the two four hole tips over the last week (I’ve still to try the three hole tip).

What a difference :D, really nice silky microfoam easily produced in a very short time! I wish I had done this ages ago.

I've just bought a 3 hole steam tip from BB works much better than the supplied 1 hole tip, especially for me as getting the right amount of foam was hit and miss mainly miss!!

Slightly late to the game: are you using the official Expobar 3-hole ("Expobar 3 Hole Steam Tip + O'ring - 30370195"), or some other 3 hole?

The Expobar ones are rather expensive for some reason, that said all the no-burn compatible tips with small holes seem expensive (plenty of cheaper ones but with bigger holes, which my machine probably can't cope with)?
