    Sunbeam Cafe Series - decent grinder for home espresso?

    Hi All,

    I have a Breville Ikon BES400 machine which I recently purchased. I was running pre-ground coffee in double walled baskets previously but was told single wall is the way to go. So I've bought such baskets (genuine Breville) and given them a go. It seems my pre-ground coffee is too coarse so I need to invest in a grinder. Can anyone identify the item below (sorry only have one pic) as I can buy it for $50.

    It looks pretty industrial but also well used. I only paid $15 for the machine itself with all the gear so a bit reluctant to spend mega-bucks on a grinder so what other good makes/models are there I should look for online used or new?

    Thanks.

    It LOOKS like an EM480 - which will be a vast improvement over what you currently use. If it is a lesser SB model, find an old 480...

    Yes it's a Sunbeam EM0480 grinder. At $50 it's a good grinder and a far superior option to using preground coffee. Make sure you give it a good clean inside and out.
