I have no use for the black plastic thinggy that's meant to be fitted to the steam wand, as I don't want cappuccino. Frothed milk is not something I want in my coffee. However, HOT milk is.
Having taken the aforementioned plastic frother off the steam wand, I'm left with something so damned short that it's extremely difficult to get the milk heated.
My old Spidem had a much longer steam wand.
Can anyone suggest a way in which I can work around this physical problem, please?
