IMHO there's one important thing missing in this study: Are these small differences in extraction yield really noticeable as far as taste is concerned? To make this significant, there should have been a blind cupping.

This article seemed to be addressing coffeeshop situations mostly, the speed they can pump out consistently good shots being a big focus. While the better baristas can multitask and still usually get the shots right, the average barista is stuck focusing on the pour while with a volumetric they can continue with other duties. The results of the study did surprise me a bit, but in the end the real focus seemed to be throughput in a coffee shop.
