Iced Coffee is perfect–might make the VUE even more fun
The Nantucket Iced Blend works REALLY well in the Keurig Vue. The Vue is a new version of the Keurig single cup coffee machine, and it has a bunch of new features compared to the current K-cup machines (and by the way, you can get this iced blend in K-cups.) The Vue lets you choose an iced setting that is at an ideal temperature for brewing, and lets you adjust volume for your desired strength. You can also brew it stronger. The Vue does NOT use K-cups. It uses the Vue cup which is recyclable.
Fill a 16 oz NON-GLASS (important!) mug with ice
Set the Vue to Iced Beverage, put in the Vue cup
Choose 6 oz (optimum for over-ice, but you can opt for weaker)
Choose Strong (again, the ice dilutes it.)
Why no glass? The addition of hot liquids into a chilled, icy glass can cause your glass to break. I brewed in a ceramic mug, but a metal insulated travel mug is another option.
Stronger? Well, the ice dilutes the coffee a lot, so even if you like a light brew, you might find either a lower volume or a stronger brew would be ideal for your tastes. I preferred 6 oz and STRONG setting and got a cup brewed directly onto ice that tastes great. Either way, you can customize the settings on the Vue to make your iced coffee the way you like it.
This Vue cup is longer (holding more coffee) to allow for a stronger blend, but there is no reason you can’t brew another blend over ice using the ICED BEVERAGE setting. But the Nantucket blend tastes really just right, in my opinion. Excellent!
