Hello!
While browsing, I stumbled over https://www.aliexpress.com/i/32964154417.html this.
What do you think about that? Isn't the steam too hot? If not, I think it is a nice idea.

I tried one. The pressure of the steam caused the tube on the steam wand to just pop off. Never worked well for me.

We bought our espresso setup almost 5-years ago and purchased with it the Concept Art steam wand steam cleaning group bush.

This is the only accessary we have never used - just not needed in my opinion.

Hoping that one day I'll need it.

Still in its sealed box!

I find the Espazzola to be excellent.

I'll take your word for it but it looks like a 3-D printed dental appliance!

Yes, I guess it does! I wonder if we could come up with a toothbrush that works that way?

It really does a great job of cleaning the group head, much easier than a brush.

I picked up one of the Concept Art steam wands about 6 years ago. The tubing does need to be well seated over the steam wand tip to avoid popping off under pressure. Most of my use has been steam cleaning parts that have nothing to do with an espresso machine.
