We've already taken a look at our likes/dislikes as well as a rundown of comparison features between the old K-Cup brewers and the newer Vue-Pack brewers. As a result, we're continuing our review series today by taking a look at some of the new options which are now available when brewing coffees on the Keurig Vue V700 brewer.
Unlike the older K-Cup brewers, you can now adjust a variety of options prior to brewing. Anything from water temperature to brew strength is now user-adjustable. Let's take a look at some of the new features and how they work, shall we?

We recently started reviewing Keurig Vue-Cups and decided to take a step back and compare the new Keurig Vue V700 to one of our favorite K-Cup brewers which we've been using for years, the Keurig B70 Platinum. We thought it would be fun to do an informative comparison between the Keurig Brewers so that new users could get an idea of the major differences between both machines as well as some of our likes/dislikes between the two. We'll start things off with the Keurig B70 Platinum and follow-up with the Keurig Vue V700. Our apologies for the length of this article... you may want to grab a few cups of single serve coffee before reading this monster-sized "Mega Review" :-)

The Eight O'Clock Coffee Company (a member of the Tata Global Beverages family of brands), have announced a multiyear agreement to make Eight O'Clock coffee, Tetley tea, and Good Earth tea available in K-Cup and Vue packs for Keurig Single Cup Brewing systems. This new relationship will provide Keurig brewer owners with additional choices by having Eight O'Clock coffee, Tetley tea, and Good Earth tea readily available for their brewers and we think more choices is a good thing.
Eight O'Clock Coffee Company and GMCR plan to make a select offering of Eight O'Clock coffee K-Cup packs available throughout the U.S. and Canada beginning in fall 2012. In the U.S, Tetley teas, and in the U.S. and Canada, Good Earth teas intend to join the K-Cup pack collection in 2013. There's no word on the exact dates for Vue Packs to be available for the Keurig Vue system for any of these brands.

We often wonder how much coffee can be improved when you brew it with a new system or different method. Back in 2007 we had our first cup of The Original Donut Shop Coffee in K-Cup form from Coffee People and thought it was good - but not great. Oh how things have changed with this medium roast coffee using the new Vue system from Keurig and Vue pack.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
