Keurig Gourmet Single-Cup Home-Brewing System

I'm looking at the "The Keurig Mini Plus Personal Brewer". It looks promising, although it seems the system is harder to find in Europe than the US.

I'm mainly hoping for a system with a minimum of fuss and cleaning unlike my cappuccino machine, although it admittedly makes the best coffee.

Update: After reading some reviews, I've decided that it's probably not possible to find pre-ground coffee which tastes as good as freshly ground coffee. And it was indeed a clear step up in the quality of my cappuccino when I got a home-grinder, so...

Due to a similarity of names, Amazon also came up with the book you see here, I think it's Dutch. Love and swine... ? Really!?...? Too funny.

I must admit that I'm not keen on any of the pod-based systems. I prefer to use something that requires only coffee beans, leaving me the widest choice of where to source them. I won't ever be left with a machine for which pods are no longer available either.

I have an Aeropress, the ultimate manual system, requiring nothing but ground coffee and water to make a great cup of coffee.

Then there is the mypressi Twist, a handheld espresso maker powered by little CO2 cartridges. More expensive to buy and run that an Aeropress but if you must have an espresso with a full head of crema, probably a better choice.
