Endo Said:

The total kitchen space occupied by the whole setup is around 14 square inches. (14x14x14) and I'm ready to pull shots in only 8 minutes from cold.

Posted August 14, 2011 link

1)  14x14=196 square inches
2)  14x14x14=2744 cubic inches
3)  I'd still allow more than 8 minutes from cold on that machine, even if the pressure is there after 8 minutes

It has been just over 4 years with the GS/3 and Kony.  Yesterday, I retired the faithful Kony to a new home, and today, welcomed the Vulcano into the family.  Initial thoughts after fiddling around for about an hour:

- Fast.  4.95 seconds for my standard double shot.  Same motor, same burrs as old, so I am guessing its the new burrs.  Mind you, I don't remember the Kony ever being this fast even when new.  Never timed it, but maybe 12 seconds with the dosered Kony.  I just remember thinking "it's a bit slow", even for home use towards the end, but neither did I feel the need for Robur speed.
- Convenient.  I am not bothering to brush out after each shot.  I'll just purge a few seconds to clean out the old grinds.
- Taste.  Not a fair comparison being the burrs are so new, but the shots were at least comparable to the Kony.
- Mess: If I am even 0.05 seconds off, the grinds spill over into the nooks and crannies of the machine.  I rarely made a mess with the dosered Kony.  With variations in bean freshness, humidity, blend, etc., I figure I'll set the timer to underdose a bit, and use the manual override button to top up since I'm not pulling shots all day long.
- Sound: This is my first experience with an E/doserless grinder.  I love the gentle whirr of the automatic fan that comes on after grinding a dose.

Hometown 1950's pressure gauge. Upgraded Ulka pump after I killed the last one. I reduced my OPV a quarter turn to provide 135ish psi at the pump with very good results.
