Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System Review 2020

The Keurig Rivo is an impressive machine that performs consistently throughout brewing operation and makes it the best choice for the best performing capsule espresso maker overall. But unfortunately, it’s discontinued and is not a part of the coffee machine market anymore. The Keurig Rivo is chiefly a cappuccino and latte system. Remember, this machine is our top pick for the best capsule espresso maker overall and that’s a great recommendation.

Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System Review

 

Almost all of the units by Keurig feature a relatively same design. Same way, Kuerig Rivo also inherits the same look of the Keurig default look but it’s a little bolder with the large interface, decent reservoir and a decent black ascent along with frontal transparent milk reservoir.

Some of the units by Keurig just are not so compact and demand relatively more room on the surface. The same is the case with Kuerig Rivo which’s a spacious unit with its 11.4 x 10.8 x 11.4 inches design that weighs a good 17 pounds. Additionally, this piece utilizes technology to identify the inserted pod and optimizes brewing and also features fifteen bars of pressure for easy brewing.

Moreover, the design of this machine allows you to brew your coffee on one side of the machine while frothing your milk on the other side at the same time. The design of this unit offers two sizes of espresso and three milk frothing modes. Also, it uses Keurig 2.0 My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filters for an amazing sip of brewed magic.

Keurig Rivo Cappuccino Latte System review 2020

 

Features

Keurig Rivo has the following features:

Fifteen bars of pressure for fast brewing: This is ideal if you are doing a round of coffees so you won’t find that the first person served has finished their drink before the last person even has theirs.

Simultaneous brewing and milk preparation: The design of this machine allows you to brew your coffee on one side of the machine while frothing your milk on the other side at the same time, meaning your coffee and milk will be ready together, which again makes the process a whole lot faster.

Three milk frothing modes: You can choose from latte milk, cappuccino milk or there’s even a cold froth option. Each setting gives the perfect milk for its drink meaning that your coffees will be perfect without you having to guess how the milk should be frothed.

Two espresso sizes: Small is 1.4oz and lungo is 2.8oz. This feature allows you to choose the second option if you like your cappuccinos or lattes a little bit stronger.

As we discussed above, the Keurig Rivo is primarily a latte and cappuccino maker. However, a few simple tricks can mean it can do so much more for you. Here are some tips to get the most out of your machine.

To make an Americano, brew your espresso as normal, then run it through again without changing the capsule. This means you are topping up the espresso with hot water, making for a longer drink. Repeat as required.

For espressos, a simple way to decide on the size is to order an extra shot in your favorite coffee shot, choose the lungo option. If you don’t, choose the small option.

To make a Café Crema, brew your espresso as normal. Set the milk frother to cold froth and froth a small amount of milk. Add it to the top of the espresso for extra, creamier crema.

 

Our Verdict:

Overall, the Keurig Rivo is a great choice of capsule coffee machines. Its simplicity of use, good price, and sleek design make it a fantastic all-rounder, and the fast brewing time makes it an excellent choice if more than one person would like to drink their coffees together.

It’s a perfect choice for brewed coffee, cappuccino, Americano, espresso, and Café Crema. The design of this machine allows you to brew your coffee on one side of the machine while frothing your milk on the other side at the same time, meaning your coffee and milk will be ready together, which again makes the process a whole lot faster.

Cons
  • The downside of the capsule machine
