Peer group pressure is an insidious social phenomenon that causes the afflicted to often act in rash and unpredictable ways......

Ah nice, cheers will keep in mind :). It's funny the idea of trying to keep water away from coffee/coffee grinds at all costs but then it's gonna have water specifically blasting through it in the end XD

Ah okay fair enough, yeah for steaming but also for any splashback that may occur when purging water, cleaning grouphead etc, but that's great to know. Maybe I'm just messy XD. Am moving houses soon and this situation may arise :o ;)

The cloth over the steam wand method as noted above is great
However I have recommended to others in the past to use an empty 1 Lt milk bottle if space and height permits

Edit
As for group head cleaning and catching over spill I use a stainless steel camping mug
I don’t let any last lever machine flow to spill into the catch stray I catch it in the cup and the odd drop is caught by the blue cloth

That’s why my machine still looks like new

I always worry about having the grinder near the machine, moisture etc, do you guys find this to be an issue at all with your setups? (Water jumping over onto the grinder?) Hence my setup being grinder on one end of the corner bench and the machine on the other haha.. It's probably easy enough to avoid and not really an issue having them side by side.. I see many and have worked in many cafes which have that setup

Never had an issue
But I do take care and reduce any risk when releasing steam / water
The system I use is to wrap a microfibre cloth over the steam wand and all steam is trapped inside it
And for milk steaming - we’ll im very good at it - so no milk spots

No.

I’ve never even considered it really. An espresso machine produces some steam but steam rises and dissipates quickly.

The steam wand is on the opposite side from the grinder in my setup but I doubt if it would matter.
