EQUIPMENT-Steam Tip

Dear Reader,

Something new under the sun…the “Foam Knife One” from Espresso Parts NW is a steam tip with a slit on the end, about 6mm in length, and a 1.2 mm hole in the center of the slit. It fits on LaMarzocco and Synesso machines. I recieved it in a sample pack of three innovative tips and it is the best tip I have ever steamed milk on.

In my micro-pitcher (1/3 L) I was able to foam very small quantities of milk with the best texture I have ever gotten off that wand. It is my training station at our Brix location,  I steam there every day and this tip produced the the finest foam texture I have ever seen come off that wand.

Thanks to Terry Z. and Espresso Parts NW.
