QUESTION: What to do when my Simonelli Appia II is "over steaming"?
ANSWER: Assuming your espresso machine is properly set up and maintained you may want to try a different type of steam tip. For example, more or fewer holes, different size holes, etc. can make a difference. We recommend around 1.2 bar for small pitchers, and more for larger pitchers. To produce less foam we suggest you try a steam tip with the smaller diameter holes (1.2mm). This can help to take control of steaming. Take a look at Simonelli Steam Tip Nozzle 75006038.1.
