Before we even bother going into any details on the concrete facts that we now know about the new Keurig Vue V700 Home Brewer, we will give you our best answer to the number one question on everyone's mind, directly from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters' (GMCR) news release:
"GMCR's new Vue brewer and Vue packs will compliment the current Keurig K-Cup brewer and its K-Cup packs."
So that is exactly how much we know when it relates to the questions "Will my K-Cups work with the new Keurig Vue Brewer?" and "Will Keurig still make K-Cups that work with my current brewer?"
Here is what we do know:
According to the extremely long subject line in this morning's email from GMCR announcing the release of the Keurig Vue Brewing System: Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Unveils New Keurig Brewing Platform; Keurig Vue offers greater customization to brew what you like stronger, bigger and hotter dl (yes, that is really the subject line, and we're not too sure what dl is).
GMCR lists the Vue Platform Benefits as 1.) Brew Stronger: With Custom Brew Technology, the Vue brewer adjusts the water pressure, timing and airflow so consumers can brew to better suit their taste preference. 2.) Brew Bigger: Consumers can brew a larger travel mug with the new Vue packs specially formulated to brew a bigger cup up to 18 ounces. 3.) Brew Hotter: Vue offers a brewing temperature range between 187 and 197 degrees Fahrenheit so consumers have more ways to customize the perfect cup.
