Europiccola tweaks

Recommended Posts

Felt like starting a collection of what makes life easier with an (old) Europiccola.
Please chime in with your tweaks that iron out design flaws or improve performance...

Added a snipped off pinhead to locate the corresponding lead-in of boiler screw thread. Went in smoothly between knob and cover

 

Before, I've always needed two or three attempts to screw the cap back on after refilling boiler....

Office solution: bent paper clip to close one of the three holes in steam tip. Makes for a great swirl!
My old Lady doesn't have a 3D steam arm, so my range of motion next to overflow pipe and hot group is very limited. The original 3-hole tip just meant whirlpooling and bubbling. Very James Bond but not suitable for latte art.

Couldn't you just screw anti clockwise first so you can feel when it finds it's seat?

Funny enough, at least with my Pavoni, you miraculously cannot feel anything by twisting counterclockwise... it was pure guesswork going forth and back until it would finally bite. Small pinhead, big improvement!
