I have had a K-cup brewer for three years and love it. I finally decided to cash in some of my rewards points from all of the K-cups I have purchased from Keurig and purchase the Vue. I have to say I love it! I really like that you can select the "stronger" setting and the cup size in 2 oz. increments. I was using two K-cups per cup to get the right strength in a larger mug of coffee. With the Vue, I can use an extra-bold, such as Newman's Own, select stronger, then select 12 oz. and I can get a great cup of coffee. In the end, the Vue packs are actually cheaper for my use than the K-cups because I only have to use one per cup, instead of two. I always purchase my coffee through Keurig because I have found they have the best selection, and with their sales, they have the best prices. I just hope that it will last as long as my other Keurig. But, it if does break, I have to say I will get another.
