Keurig Vue System vs. Keurig K-Cups: What Is the Difference and Which is The Best?
Few days ago, we’ve included the Keurig Vue V700 as one of the best new single-serve brewers available on market. We’ve also established that the Vue system is a totally different thing from Keurig’s K-Cups. So, what is the difference? and which is a better choice for you?
Difference Between Keurig Vue and Keurig K-Cups:
In a nutshell:
Is a Vue pod different from a regular Keurig Pod (K-Cup)?
Yes, it’s different and they’re not used with the same machines.
Can I Use a Different Coffee Pod in a Vue?
You can only use Vue coffee pods, which are available from different coffee brands, just like K-Cups. But only VUE capsules can be used with a VUE machine.
The Vue system is the next generation brewer from Keurig. The difference between it and the K-Cups is how programmable and customizable it is. With Vue, you can control the temperature, the strength of the coffee, you have a choice of eight different cup sizes, and it’s all controllable via an easy to use color touch screen. Just like K-Cups, Vue can brew coffee, tea, cappuccino, latte, hot chocolate and many more drink. However, the capsules (or pods) are not the same. Vue uses coffee pods made specially for it, and they do NOT brew K-Cups – but you’ll find most of the same drinks available for Vue.
So simply put, with Vue, your drinks are %100 customized to your liking: from size (starting at 4 oz and up to 18oz) to temperature. The control is as easy as possible with the colored touch screen. The one thing missing from the Keurig Vue system – yet – is a MyK-cup style pod that you can use to fill with your own coffee ground. But I’m sure this will be available soon enough.
