Hi gregorys, welcome to CS.
As far as a grinder goes, for that budget, Id encourage you to push the $300 mark... something like an ASCASO I3 Mini, or Iberital Challenge should cover your bases. Check out the reviews on the Grinder info/review page.
The 800ES has what is known as pressurised baskets and has a wrap for perculating the coffee within the basket (see how there are hundreds of holes from the top of the basket and only one pinhole underneath. Its good for supermarket coffee and gives.... well fake crema in most cases. You want to get yourself some non-pressurised baskets... the Krups ones fit nice. I just got some of these double baskets for a friend who has the same machine and its turned his world upside down as far as how much better the coffee is once I brought my grinder over and we changed his baskets.
To step up your experience as well, basically take coffee off your shopping list next time you goto the supermarket - its all stale, nuff said. Find yourself a local roaster so youre getting some fresh stuff. Where abouts are you located, maybe theres one right near you.
The EM0480 is apparently a bit messy, being doserless as well.
Getting in contact with one of the site sponsors can set you up with a good price and excellent after-sales service... plus theyre good blokes/gals.
Keep us posted,
