Can We Help You Find The Right Keurig For You?
I need help finding the best model for my use.
No, thanks. I prefer to browse all models and decide for myself.
Keurig Vue is a one of Keurig’s versatile brewers that has been eventually discontinued and replaced by the Keurig 2.0 brewing system. As Vue uses its own pods called Vue Packs, it limits the type of coffee you can enjoy using the machine. Vue Packs should be available from most brands, but as the machine has been discontinued, you might find less and less Vue packs available. The Vue packs are also more expensive, so using K-Cup pod instead will save you money.
Does that mean it is time to upgrade your machine? Not necessarily. Read on…
We’ve covered the difference between Keurig Vue and Keurig 2.0 in a previous post. What made a Vue brewer special is the touch screen display and its ability to brew cup sizes up to 18 oz. Both of these things are available in the newer Keurig 2.0 brewers and more. Keurig 2.0 can even brew a full carafe, which is something Vue brewers didn’t do.
If it’s within your budget to upgrade to a new Keurig 2.0, then that would be a great option as it would serve you for a long time to come. But if you’re not in the market for a new machine. There’s a solution.
In order to use any K-Cup pod in a Keurig Vue brewer, you will need a special adapter that you can get for mostly less than $20. Using this adapter, which looks like a refillable K-Cup pod but it’s shaped like a Vue pack. You place the K-cup pod inside the adapter and it will fit into your Vue brewer.
Pros of using a K-Cup to Vue Adapter:
