Keurig has officially announced the new Keurig VUE Brewing System and V-Cups. The Vue system supports stronger bolder coffee, and the V-Cups are able to be recycled unlike the older K-Cup format. As of today there are over 33 V-Cups available for the VUE brewer which retails at $249. Also, the Keurig Vue can brew "frothy" drinks including Barista Prima Coffeehouse Café Mochas, Barista Prima Coffeehouse Sweetened Cappuccinos, and Barista Prima Coffeehouse Vanilla Lattes. It appears there will be both a milk V-Cup and a coffee V-Cup to make such milk based coffee drinks possible.
The Keurig Vue V700 Brewing System gives you total control to brew your way: stronger, bigger, hotter and with more choices than ever before. With an interactive Touchscreen and revolutionary new Custom Brew Technology Vue ensures every beverage is brewed to perfection, giving you perfect results - every cup, every time. And your choices are nearly limitless. In addition to coffee, tea, hot cocoa and iced beverages, Vue™ brews delicious café and specialty beverages as well. Includes a bonus variety of 10 Vue™ packs. This product is BPA free.
