Which is Better: 2 Hole or 4 Hole Steam Tip?
This entry was posted on June 17, 2010.
We often get asked whether or not a 4 hole steam tip is worth the upgrade on a machine like the Rocket Giotto Evoluzione. You definitely need to have more power to back up a multiple hole tip -- as was seen on the first iteration of the Rancilio Silvia V3, the boiler size did not match well with the 3 hole tip and folks got very lackluster results. So it's important to match the right tip to the right machine.
