Welcome to the gang :)
Nemox or equivalent machine grinder combo is a good one or the Sunbeam 6910/480 grinder (still not a good long term option IMO) are about the best under the $1k. If you can stretch then the new Gee looks worth a look or there is the tried and tested Silvia/Rocky combo but you are $1.3k+ for these.
If you are on a serious budget the the Nemox is the toughest option for the $$ but it does have a few drawbacks if you want to pump out more than 2 or 3 coffees in a row with the delay between shots to steam and back again.
One more thing do you currently have a grinder of any sort?
