Thanks Tony,

Your reply helps somewhat.  However, the K30 is also a flat burr grinder (although at 65mm, rather than the 58mm of the M4).  This is another reason I was wondering about how much of an improvement I would notice.

No, I'm not a true single doser, although I do grind to order.  I typically fill my hopper with approximately 5 days supply and "single dose" from there.  The biggest reason for this is that I'm not the only "barista" in the house, and the other one doesn't pay attention to the details the way I do.  Not to dwell on it, but rather to give you an idea what I'm talkling about, I taught him how to use the Silvia and we both attended the one day class with Heather Perry at Klatch several years ago.  However, I'm the only one who's done the reading and research and experimentation at home.  he doesn't even know how to backflush.  At least he purges the steam wand and cleans of the milk.  He also never adjusts grind setting (probably a good thing).  The main reason I've given my decaf the lesser grinder in the past (obviously not now though), is/was that I don't drink it that often.  If it's before 5pm on a weekday, I drink regular.  On weekends, unless it's a late night after dinner espresso, I drink regular.  The decaf is primarily for those in the house with less discerning palates.

I might be more interested in getting an M7 like you did.  I think I'm going to read about them a little.
