Nick, no to the Turkish grinder. I own a Sovan, they are great for doing that style, but I'm not sure they would be consistent enough for espresso. What would be best is an older vintage wood espresso grinder, or maybe the newer version of one. Just make sure it's meant for espresso. Otherwise, I'd look for a refurb Baratza Preciso on the Baratza website, or perhaps a used Lelit. Both would be under $275. As a lever-head myself, a very good grinder is a MUST. The Infinity will do drip, etc just fine. Keep it for that. I'm surprised your vendor didn't package a proper grinder for you. or did you purchase your MCAL 2nd hand?
