Sunbeam Cafe Series - decent grinder for home espresso?
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?
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...

Thanks guys I will grab it on the weekend if still available, if I just google how to clean a coffee grinder it should give me enough info or is there anything specific you can advise me.
