The Keurig Vue, which looks to push the envelope on java and joe innovation, is a finalist in the consumer packaged goods beverage preparation category, one of 12 categories honored by the Edison Awards, said Green Mountain, which sometimes refers to itself as GMCR.

In a statement, Michelle Stacy, president of Green Mountain’s Keurig business unit, said, “The Keurig Vue brewing system represents the most advanced system in Keurig’s single-serve beverage delivery and is a great example of GMCR’s commitment to delivering sustained innovation. By adding features that allow consumers to brew what they love the way they love it – stronger, bigger and hotter – we’ve further enhanced consumer choice and we believe broadened the appeal of the Keurig Single Cup Brewing System.”

Keurig makes single-serve brewing machines that use single-serve pods of coffee called K-Cup packs. It also offers the Vue System, a single-serve brewing machine that allows for more customization.

Keurig has been so successful in popularizing single-serve coffee machines that rivals now look to poach on its turf.
