Is Baratza preciso good for espresso?
The Preciso is a conical burr grinder, and from experience does a very fine job with all grinds as well, but is (IMO) slightly less consistent with espresso. It will perform well with your machine, but perhaps finding a refurb Vario (a flat ceramic burr) would complete your espresso “kit” for a good long while.
How do you clean a preciso coffee grinder?

Do burr grinders wear out?
The answer: Yes, burrs in coffee bean grinders do wear out. But if you own a good quality grinder, the burrs will probably last a long time. Your ceramic burr grinders wear out a bit faster, but can still grind enough coffee for approximately 42,500 shots of espresso or 16,000 mugs of pour-over coffee.
Why are blade coffee grinders bad?
Why it’s the worst. The reason a blade grinder is just about the worst option is because of how it works. The blade grinder has one or two blades that spin very fast — essentially chopping the beans. This “chopping” of the beans creates an uneven grind. Then during brewing your ground will not extract properly.
