How to Recycle Keurig Vue Packs

vuepacktorecycle.jpg
Make sure and wait for the Vue pack to cool before peeling the lid off.

We've put together an overview of how to recycle the Keurig Vue Packs. Recycling for us here at Single Serve Coffee is really important, and knowing which single serve coffee products can be recycled will help put your environmental mind at ease. The Keurg Vue packs have a peel off lid that allows you to recycle the plastic cup or V-Cup, and you can also recycle the cardboard box the Vue packs come in.

Starbucks Coffee Company and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. have announced the expansion of their strategic relationship for the manufacturing, marketing, distribution and sale of Starbucks-branded Vue packs for use in GMCR's recently introduced Keurig Vue Brewer (you can read our review here of the new VUE V700 System).

Starbucks and GMCR expect GMCR to distribute Starbucks Vue packs initially in specialty, department store, and mass retailers in the U.S. as well as on GMCR's consumer direct websites by fall 2012.

Full release after the jump.

What Will You Call the Keurig Vue Packs? V-Packs? V-Cups? or Vue Packs?

keurg_vue_packs.jpg

What are you going to call the Vue packs from Keurig? We have been calling them V-Cups here at Single Serve Coffee, but others we've chatted with are calling them V-Packs? And, we're unsure if we'd ever call them just Vue packs in a casual single serve coffee conversation. What are you going to call them? Sound off in the comments and let us know your thoughts.

Keurig Office Vue V1200 Brewing System with Vue Pack RFID Reader

keurigv1200system.jpg

The Keurig Office Vue V1200 Brewing System is designed to meet the needs of the office coffee market. The brewer integrates RFID technology into the Keurig Vue Packs to make sure only office Vue packs are used in the V1200, and to communicate with the brewer what type of coffee or hot beverage is being prepared.

The Keurig Office Vue V1200 Brewing System with RFID Reader also uses Vue packs exclusively. The office Vue packs are also recyclable just like the consumer Vue packs. No word on what varieties of coffees, teas, and other beverages will be available with integrated RFID Vue packs when the brewer launches later this year.

Review: Keurig VUE V700 Single Cup Brewing System Makes Amazing Coffee, Tea, and Café Style Drinks

Review Single Serve Coffee12-V700-Vue-Brewer-alt5.jpg

The Keurig Vue V700 Single Cup Brewing System uses Keurig's Vue Packs, and is a single cup brewing system capable of making coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and even lattes and cappuccinos. The Keurig VUE brewer can only use Keurig Vue Packs, and not K-Cups, which are meant for older Keurig systems. Also unlike the older K-Cups, pulling off the top of the foil lid with the filter attached to a VUE Pack one can recycle the cup part of a VUE pack.

Keurig VUE V700 Single Cup Brewing System Arrives for Review

keurigvuereviewunits.jpg

We decided after hearing about the Keurig Vue V700 Single Cup Brewing System and Keurig Vue Packs were at retail to venture out this morning to find one to bring home for review. We found that our local Bed, Bath, and Beyond in Burlington, MA has the VUE Brewer and VUE Cups for sale so we picked a brewer, carousel, and VUE cups up. There's quite a few flavors of coffee, tea, and even a barista VUE Cup pack of the Vanilla Latte available which surprised us on the initial launch variety.

Will the Keurig Vue Single Cup Brewing System fit a Travel Mug?

keurig_vue_travel_mug.jpg

Why yes - in fact the Vue Brewer will fit a travel mug. The drip tray can be pulled forward to make room for a large sized travel mug in the Keurig Vue Brewer. You can also brew full strength in a travel mug with Vue packs specially formulated to brew a bigger cup with the strength you would want in a large travel mug.

How are Keurig VUE Packs AKA V-Cups Different than K-Cups?

keurg_vue_packs.jpg

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.

Keurig VUE Brewer V700 and V-Cups Announced

keurig_vue_brewer.jpg

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.

Keurig VUE Brewer V700 [Was B80V] and V-Cups Rumor Round-Up

keurig_vue_picture.jpg
Is this the Keurig Vue Brewer? We're not sure but you may like this web comic from Scott Kurtz called The Trenches.

We've been getting lots of reader send ins of information regarding the rumored Keurig Vue and new V-Cup format for the new VUE brewer. Over at New Keurig "Vue" brewer [B80V] in the Single Serve Coffee there's much discussion regarding the VUE brewer, and whether or not it's going to use an RFID reader for anything, and what this new keurig VUE brewer and V-Cup format could be.

Here's what we know so far, and all of this is just wild speculation until tomorrow February 15th when Keurig may or may not reveal the VUE brewer and V-Cup format at their event in New York.
