The holiday season came early for me this year! My darling wife snagged me a Quick Mill Vetrano from Chris's intro shipment.

This is a plumbed rotary pump HX machine that shares many features with the vibe pump Anita and Andreja models. Just hooked 'er up this morning.

Plumbing the Vetrano was literally a snap, thanks to the John Guest fitting. I already had a water line in place, so it only took a few moments. Haven't plumbed the drip tray yet (this may be a minor PITA) - but I plan to.

Here's the very first shot I pulled on the machine. Wow - it's drinkable!

Here's the second shot, with a minor tweak to the grind. Wow - it's great!

To those folks who keep complaining about how hard it is to use an HX machine, I can only pass on the inimitable words of TwoMartinis:

For my third shot, I had to go naked:

Vetrano, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship...

Beautiful pulls John! You're a lucky man. Boy, that intro deal from Chris was certainly tempting, though the Andreja Premium is already more than I deserve.

Is the rotary pump noticeably quieter than a vibratory?

I agree with you on the difficulty in using an HX/E61 machine - not tough at all. My only mistake, when I'm still somewhat asleep in the morning is forgetting to pull a cooling shot. Luckily, that's only happened once.

Enjoy!

Thanks Bob! The Vetrano is super quiet - noticeably quieter than the rotary on my Rancilio L7. Much quieter than a vibe pump. Otherwise the Andreja and the Vetrano appear to be very similar machines.

BTW, my friend is enjoying your Cunill Tranquilo. He chose it over the Bunn/Cunill Brasil Tauro Colombia? sitting next to the Vetrano. Both great grinders, definitely espresso-worthy.
