AP... the magic to beautiful crema is freshly roasted, freshly ground beans.

And, even a $40 Krups burr grinder from Costco can help unlock the "crema magic".... and while it's hard to dial in your shots with them, it'll still give you better results then pre-ground coffee will.

Dont buy a $40 grinder.  Mayyyyyybe you couljd make do, but it would such a frustrating experience, and definitely not indicative of what your machine is capable of.

As was suggested, hit the grinder forums for more direct answers on which grinder to get.  Budget at least $250-300 for an electric grinder(and really, for the machine you have, you should be looking at $500 or so)
