Whilst the Gaggia Classic Pro steam wand is a pleasure to use, and really is a great upgrade over previous standard and aftermarket steam wands for the Classic - the standard steam tip on the wand is a two hole one. They work well, but we wanted to know if they could be better...
Along with many others, we looked high and low for a single hole steam tip that's compatible with the Classic Pro - but to no avail.
So, we designed and tested a range of different tips with an aim of finding the best design to both maximise steam power but also maximise the steam duration on both a standard (thermostatically controlled) Classic Pro and also a PID controlled Classic Pro. We also wanted a design that looked OEM, and not just a drilled out stainless steel screw stuck on the end!
We are now pleased to announce "The One" - a single hole steam tip for Classic Pro steam wands, exclusively available from Shades of Coffee.
Installation is as simple as unscrewing your original tip, storing it in the small padded box included with The One, and screwing The One steam tip on in place of it. The red sealing silicone O ring is included with the tip, as shown in the boxed images - and no tools are usually required (though sometimes the tips can be a tight fit, especially if never removed before, and firm finger pressure is required).
NOTE that this item is ONLY the replacement steam tip; it is ONLY compatible with the standard Gaggia Classic Pro steam wand - and no other.
Hence if you want to use The One on any other Gaggia Classic (other than a Classic Pro / Classic 2019+) that doesn't already have the Classic Pro steam wand, then you would need to also install the Classic Pro steam wand linked to above. This can be fitted to any earlier Classic, and is a "bolt off / bolt on" upgrade for earlier Classics (other than the RI9403 / Classic V2 2015).
This item contains:
- a single hole steam tip with silicone O ring, to suit the Classic Pro standard steam wand
- boxed in a branded, padded storage box
