How are Keurig VUE Packs AKA V-Cups Different than K-Cups?
The Keurig Vue Brewer works only with the patented Vue packs or V-Cups. Each portion pack contains exactly the right amount of coffee, tea or other beverage. Also the Vue packs can only be used with Vue Brewers. They are not interchangeable with K-Cup Brewers and K-Cup packs.
We expected this to be the case when Keurig announced the new VUE Brewer, and to solve all the problems of different beverages, recycled K-Cups, and brew strength a new brew system was invented. One of the big innovations we're most excited to try is the latte or cappuccino drinks that come with a coffee and a milk portion vue pack.
Some people may wonder why K-Cup packs and Vue packs are not interchangeable. The goal of every Vue pack was to offer the consumer the ultimate brewing experience. To do so, an entirely new system had to be created.
Really the system allows for strength of brew, airflow, and a VUE portion pack that can be recycled.
Consumers told Keurig they wanted to brew stronger, bigger, hotter than ever before.
To create such a system, the Keurig engineers invented a patented system to provide every consumer the ultimate in customization at the touch of a button.
Custom Brew Vue Technology adjusts water pressure, timing and airflow so every brew is perfect - from coffees to teas to hot cocoa.
The Keurig Vue Brewer even helps you create frothy café beverages with air-infusion.
VUE Portion Packs or V-Cups are able to be recycled. Just brew, cool, peel and recycle wherever #5 plastics are accepted.
(#5 plastics may not be recyclable today in your community, so please check locally.)
The recyclability is enormous. We're really excited to see the majority of the Vue portion pack can be recycled, and our town here in Massachusetts accepts #5 plastics. Another exciting addition is the integration visually of the iconic brew size on the portion pack, and the coordination of this with the LCD display.
We're unsure of exact pricing for all of the new beverage options but we have seen mention of about $1.50 for one of the two pack based lattes or cappucinnos, so all of this new brewing technology is not going to be cheap. We've also gotten word that it looks like current retailers of K-Cups won't be selling VUE portion packs or V-Cups. We're not sure if that's true or some will and some won't. As we get more details on these items we'll let you know.
