Despite the new cup format issue, I will say, this is a beautifully-designed unit--very high end in appearance. The touch screen is incredibly easy to use and allows you to customize your brew more than on the standard K cup models. The temperature IS hotter, perfect for drinking. The brew is a bit better--I was able to make a "donut shop" brew at 6 oz and strong, which tastes terrific. The unit apparently pre-wets the grounds (which is why it grunts like a guy lifting 100 pound Olympic plates) and why it takes longer to brew.
1. First and FOREMOST: The VUE does not take standard K-CUPS. Oh yes, that's right. You need a totally different sized single pack to use this machine. So if you buy your own supplies for home AND office, it would be best if you have the same models at both locales. You can buy a self-fill cup, but you need to be aware, it takes a coarse grind to work correctly.
I ran test brews using Barista Cappuccino variety, a 2-part cup system that makes cappuccino with milky froth, not a clone of International Coffees instant in a single-pack as in the current K-cups. I also ran a test of "Donut Shop", "Gloria Jean's Hazelnut", Celestial Seasoning's Southern Iced Tea, and Green Mountain Nantucket Blend Iced (brewing both over ice as directed.)
2. You have to be able to buy VUE cups where you buy coffee. Our grocery store has no VUE cups. The selection, from what I can tell surfing around, is not as diverse as for K-cups.
3. The unit is billed as being capable of filling insulated tall travel mugs. BUT...I have several travel mugs, mostly tall steel insulated models. NOT ONE of them fits under the unit EVEN WITH THE BASE REMOVED (you pull the entire black and silver plastic base forward, It comes off easily) . The tallest mug I could get under the unit was a fatter mug that holds 18 oz. If you have a collection of those stainless steel mugs that are often business gifts or sold at coffee stores, yours might not fit under the Vue. So to fill your fave travel mug, you need to measure it under the Vue without the platform to see if it will fit. NOT ALL MUGS WILL FIT. MANY DO. MANY DO NOT. But you will be able to find a travel mug that does fit, so the Vue is excellent for brew-and-dash mornings.
4. The Vue claims to "brew hotter." You can set temperature to cooler or warmer. I actually find this is useful; for brewing into a cup with milk, I brew hotter. For black coffee to drink right away, I brew at a cooler temperature.
5. VUE cups may be hard to find at the moment at your stores, and they are not as inexpensive as the K-cups have become. This is a matter of sales volume. When the Vue becomes more popular, the cups will follow. Right now, I'm able to find them at Walmart and Kohls, and online. There are often sales. Some of the varieties are very popular (the Italian Roast and the Starbucks French Roast) and tend to be sold out.
6. The drain platform is great in that it pulls out to accommodate the travel mug, but you have to make sure you push your mug all the way back as far as you can, or it drips behind the mug. The mug rest, a black plastic insert that fits inside the mug platform, has a slight lip around it and if you are not paying attention, you can miss pushing the mug far enough back. To use a travel mug, assuming it will fit, the entire bottom comes off. (Just pull it off.) Most of my steel insulated mugs still didn't fit, however. 18 oz seems to be tops. If the mug is tall to make a slimmer part to fit your automobile drink holder, it may not fit, 18 or 20 oz. You have to test it out. Buying the VUE? Take your fave mug along to test out at the store.
7. It takes about twice as long to brew and it's noisier than my OfficePro model (which is similar to a B60 model.) Maybe that results in better coffee (more time to hit the grounds) but you won't be grabbing a cup and running. Takes me about 2 minutes.
8. There is some good news: one of the criticisms of the wildly popular Keurig is that it makes more landfill waste. This is true. K-cups are the least ecological of all the single-serve coffee methods, yet K-cups took over the market by storm. This is because the coffee was better (Green Mountain) and because the sealed cup is delightful to use (not messy on the hands) and seals in the fresh taste. No wonder it took the number one spot. But the K-cups apparently can not easily be made recyclable, so I am assuming that Keurig developed the VUE to make a more "green" disposable.
But to recycle the VUE cup, you need to pull out the papery insert filled with wet coffee and throw it and the foil away separately from the recyclable plastic cup. So, back to messy tasks and this is not as easy as a toss into the trash. You need two trash containers (garbage and recycle) and you have to do some peeling away --which I find a fiddly task indeed. How many people are actually going to bother to do this recycling?
9. The touch screen is beautiful, it is my favorite thing on the unit, though I find the icons very small. Still, it's easy to use and I love its looks and it says "ENJOY!" at the end of the brew cycle. Very slick. I LOVE the Touch Screen. It's easy to customize my coffee (I like extra-strong, lower volume--six oz cup.) You can set to brew over ice and to brew two-part cups with dry milk to make lattes.
10. The operation is trouble-free, though I think it is a heck of a lot noisier and slower than my OfficePro.
ISSUES and CONSIDERATIONS
1. What will happen to K-Cups? Do we have a dual "razor blade" world with two types of cups for sale on the shelves?
2. What were the designers drinking when they made too little clearance under the brewing spout to hold standard travel mugs?
3. If the new K-cups are designed to be recyclable, then must they have to have an insert for the coffee, and why then extra step is involved to recycle used cups? I presume, this is the best the designers could do....or....is it that K-cups are going off patent this year. Is the consumer going to embrace this? And will there be a self-filling VUE cup? Because many of use like those for home use.
4. This unit is billed as being deluxe, high-end, a "better" Keurig. But...is it really THAT much better, aside from recyclable cups, which I admit is good thing, despite the fiddliness of the procedure. But because this is not an inexpensive unit, and it uses new cups less widely available and with a smaller selection of coffees, is this really high-end or is it just high-price?
5. Predictable, after the Keurig took first place in the single-shot coffee world, landfills reported a deluge of the little white cups. It's well that Keurig made a "greener" cup but the way you recycle it is not simple and I fear that many people will just toss these in the trash rather than pull apart a used coffee pod, so will it really result in fewer cups in the landfill?
5. One more small issue: you may have trouble seeing tiny icons and numbers--even with reading glasses. The touch screen display displays very small print and is a tad annoying (but I am tall and wear bifocals, so you see the issue. I'm looking down from my 6 foot height onto the counter. You may not have any trouble seeing the display.)

*UPDATE: After a full weekend of putting this beast through its paces, I have to say, it's FAN-TASTIC. I love it. I did all kinds of brewing, comparing it to my office Keurig and it is undeniably slick, fun to use and flexible. I love the lighted reservoir that lets you know that the tank needs filling (this happens at 1/4 full) and I love the touch screen and the ability to customize volume, strength and temperature for brewing. Only the cost of the cups has me concerned, and the lack of a self-fill cup.
*UPDATE 2: When you purchase Vue Cups, BE CAREFUL. Some of the cocoa, teas, coffee-milk drinks have both sugar AND artificial sweeteners. If you avoid sucralose or other artificial sweeteners, then you have to read the entire ingredients of the Vue Cup very carefully. Some have stevia, which I don't mind as much, but I do not like a mix of sugar and non-sugar. I think it's deceptive. You may think "sugar" ok, no artificial sweetener, but it CAN be in there as well, to add more sweetness with lower volume of powder in the cup. OR to reduce the overall calorie count of a single serving to look less fattening. Be careful!
*UPDATE 3: I've now had this for over a year and I just love it. I prefer using it to my office K-cup model and this is how I drink my morning coffee. I also have found some excellent decafs and it's great for that one cup you want after dinner. I love the flexibility of the settings, ease of use and the look of the unit. Totally happy with it.
*UDATE 4 July, 2014. It looks like the great experiment in bucking the tide of K cups everywhere, Vue cups, not so much has run its course. The issue is, of course, the fact that the patent ran out on the K cups, and any and everyone can sell the "razor blade"--the disposable that makes the real money (like ink for your inkjet printer.) The Vue IS an improvement but neither this machine nor the Vue cup caught on; it's higher in price, but doesn't have that much more functionality, Vue cups in limited flavors and limited in distribution. The Keurig 2.0 is due out later this year, reputed to be able to brew a single cup or a carafe, and it may have RFID technology to prevent non-licensed K-cups being used. That may also be a recipe for disaster. You could have a single brew machine ( Black & Decker Single Serve Coffee Maker, Black ) and a Mr. Coffee and get all that functionality for a fifth of cost, and use anybody's K cups and anyone's carafe packs or your own coffee and filter. What do YOU think?
The problems as I see them:
1) Only a couple of coffee brands are making Travel Mug Portion Packs and those are only .47 oz. - not enough to make a good travel mug size cup of coffee;
2) The brewing cycle of these machines, even on Strong, leaves something (not sure what) out - there must be some tweak that could result in a better cup of coffee when using a larger Portion Pack;
3) Expensive coffee!!! So, even if you only do maybe an 8 oz. cup of coffee and use a regular size Portion Pack - in my test I used Starbucks French Roast - you'll spend a lot more money than buying a pound of coffee directly from Starbucks (more expensive than in the grocery store, but you get a pound, not 12 oz. - another issue for another review at some other time) and brewing in your "old fashioned" drip coffee maker or French press.
So, with the above said, the one thing you get from Keurig machines is convenience and no mess. I'll admit, it's why I bought one - to reduce my prep time in the morning when I'm pressed for time. But again, I'm going to pay quite a premium for the convenience:
-A good 16 oz travel mug cup of coffee takes three (3) Portion Packs of Starbucks French Roast or two (2) Barista Prima Italian Roast (.47 oz) Portion Packs.
A 12 oz. bag of Starbucks Espresso Roast whole bean cost me anywhere from $6.99 to $8.99 at the grocery store. A bag lasts me about two weeks, give or take, and I use quite a bit of coffee in each brew cycle. Compare that to 3 Portion Packs per day and a box (16 Portion Packs) of them at $13.99 barely gets me through 5 days. It's slightly better with the Barista Prima Italian Roast (12 per box) as 1 box gets me through 6 days at a cost of $9.99.
The bottom line is this: If, like me, you like a nice bold and tasteful cup of coffee in a travel mug size (12, 14 or 16 oz.), even once per day (I only drink coffee in the morning), be prepared to spend a lot more money on coffee. The only benefit this machine has to offer is convenience, but at a premium. I'm going to keep mine to brew during weekdays and use traditional method on the weekends when I have more time.
A quick note on some positives:
- Nice looking machine
- Touch screen is nice
- Brew temp adjustment is nice
- Auto-on/off and power save functions are nice
- Light in the water tank is kind of cool
The one thing I did not like about it was that it was pretty noisy when it was brewing. I still have this machine by the way. Sorry for talking in past tense. It seems like this machine is pretty much discontinued and the pods are incredibly hard to find unless you buy them online. I remedy that situation by buying a pod adapter and just using coffee grounds or normal pods. I love the LCD color screen that lets me choose how cold or hot or big or small I want my drinks to be.
I can see why this machine was discontinued after such a short amount of time on the market. It never really took off, did it? It's not bad at all. It's an attractive machine and it does it's job well. I am not looking to replace it anytime soon. If only it wasn't so darn noisy when it brewed.
Overall I'm quite happy with my choice and the few little things wrong with that do not make it a bad purchase in my eyes because they were easily remedied. I do like the brand-new machine this company has put out on the market. The 2.0. I like having the option of one cup at a time or a carafe.
Until I figure out what I want to do this is more than perfect for me. I doubt there will be many new reviews of those items since it is no longer available for sale anywhere & the pods are pretty much impossible to find
