I can buy a nice isomac super giada with a petra M20 grinder at a nice price. But the question is now how good or bad is the grinder? I know it's not the most expensive one. But can you get some decent espresso out of it...

Despite what the manufacturer claims, the Petra M20 is a nice low budget grinder for French press or drip coffee, but it doesn't grind fine enough for espresso. I happen to own one and it doesn't work with my espresso machine.
