Keurig Vue V700 vs. Keurig B70 K-Cup Single Cup Coffee Brewer Comparison

Updated on February 21, 2013

Comparing the Keurig Vue V700 and the Keurig B70 Platinum Single Cup Coffee Makers

Not too long ago Keurig introduced their Vue pack system. At this time, there's one Vue based coffee brewer available, the Keurig Vue V700. On the other side, Keurig has made and continues to make K-Cup single cup coffee brewers. THe K-Cups is probably what Keurig is best known for. There's a lot of brewers available, some under the Keurig brand, others under different brands.

What better thing to do than to compare the new Keurig Vue V700 to one of the best selling K-Cup models, the Keurig B70 Platinum. This way it should be easier for you to find out which brewing system to buy depending on your preference for beverages. You will find out about the differences between the two brewing systems as well as the good and not so good things for each brewer.

Let's start it off with the Keurig B70 Platinum Brewer and then go to the Keurig Vue V700 single cup coffee machine.

Keurig B70 Platinum - K-Cup Based Single Cup Coffee Maker

Let's have a quick look at the Keurig B70 and list the good and not-so-good things that I found.


  • Outstanding reliability. This model lasts and rarely do you hear about a broken Keurig B70.

  • Nice blue light under the water reservoir. It lights out the whole tank which does not only look good but does make it easy to see when to refill water.

  • One-touch control panel

  • Programmable on/off feature

  • Digital clock with auto-shutoff

  • Glue backlit LCD display

  • Newer models feature the Quiet-Brew technology which indeed makes this brewer much more quiet

  • Five different brewing sized

  • Ability to use a My K-Cup or similar reusable coffee container

  • Allows to brew iced beverates


  • No speciality drinks like lattes or cappucinos as the K-Cup system doesn't support it

  • Water tank shape makes it hard to fill the tank from the waster dispenser in the fridge

  • Largest brew size is 12oz. Many travel mugs are way larger than that

  • Hard to use with smaller cups as the drip-tray won't move upwards

  • The K-Cup system doesn't allow to take the coffee grounds out and recycle the empty container

Keurig B70 Platinum Single Serve Coffee Maker

The Keurig B70 is a sturdy K-Cup coffee maker with a reasonable amount of bells and whistles. With this coffee maker you know what you get:

  • Reliability

  • Great selection of beverages

  • Yummy tasting coffee

Really, you can't go wrong with this brewer.

Keurig Vue V700 One Cup Coffee Brewer

The Keurig Vue V700 is the latest coffee maker in the lineup of Keurig Single Cup Coffee Makers. It includes a new brewing technology and format which allows to personalize your beverage brewing and to make specialty beverages which are milk-based. Having said that, this brewer is still pretty new and the selection of Vue packs is somewhat limited. You might not get a beverage you like. Another issue that bugs me somewhat is that there's so far no reusable Vue pack. This would allow to use the coffee grounds you like best while also reducing the environmental impact of the plastic containers.

If you like specialty beverages, need to adjust a lot of brew settings, or simply want a bigger or stronger brew then the Keurig Vue V700 is the right single cup coffee maker for you.

Same as with the B70 I also compiled a list of Good and Not-So-Good points.


  • Large water tank of 74oz

  • Touchscreen in color allows easy setting changes and programming

  • Adjustable drip-tray with stand to raise higher and use small coffee cups.

  • Milk-based specialty drinks are supported with the Vue packs.

  • Water temperature can be progammed

  • Vue packs are easy to take apart so the plastic container can be recycled

  • Water tank is better designed and can be filled easier

  • Brew strength settings to allow to brew a 'Strong' beverage.


  • More expensive than the K-Cup models.

  • Less selection for Vue packs even though that will change over the next few years.

  • Vue packs seem more expensive than K-Cups

  • Frothing on milk-based drinks is at time unsatifsfactory. There's no ability to program that.

  • Brewing with the 'Strong' setting results in longer brewing cycles.

The simple 'good' vs. 'not-so-good' lists above shows that many of the 'not-so-good' items on the list of the Keurig B70 Platinum single cup coffee maker are 'good' items on the Keurig Vue V700. So, I think Keurig made this one right and if you are interested at all in milk-based specialty drinks then you have to go with the Keurig Vue V700. However, if all you do is brew your standard cup of coffee every day then I would think you'd be quite happy with the Keurig B70.

I personally prefer the Keurig Vue V700 single serve coffee maker as I do get my milk-based drinks. On top of that I can also set the brewing temperature which allows me to extract the most aroma out of each different kind of Vue pack. One of the things I find annoying at times is the weak frothing with the Keurig Vue V700. It's not a problem for most people but I like to have a nice, thick layer of froth on my milk-drink. It would be great to see a programmable froth feature on the V700 or any other Vue pack based single cup coffee brewing system.

I also think the coffee coming out of the V700 tastes better. Having said that, it's just my personal experience and that certainly might vary for everybody and also for every beverage. Overall, I would suggest that if you have the extra money laying around for the Keurig V700 then go ahead and invest it. In the long run you will be happer as there's more Vue packs comng out.
