- Convenient design allows you to brew espresso on one side and froth milk on the other
- The Lavazza pods are extremely good
- Reasonably priced and works just as well compared to higher end espresso machines
An affordable, Keurig coffee maker that brews espresso pods and froths milk, allowing you to create delicious lattes, cappuccinos, and americanos.
This Keurig is compatible only with a limited number of pods. Although the dimensions of this Keurig are 11.4 x 10.8 x 11.4, you need a full 16" height to open the machine to put in a pod. This may be important to anyone who has even slightly low hanging cabinets.
Who's it for? This Keurig coffee maker is for those who love milky, frothy beverages such as lattes and cappuccinos.
Features: For a basic, affordable espresso machine, the Rivo has a lot to offer. The convenient, cubed-shaped, design allows you to brew espresso on one side and froth milk on the other side (all in under a minute).
The milk frother has three settings to choose from: cappuccino, latte, and cold froth. You can also choose between two different espresso shot sizes. The short espresso pours 1.4 ounces and the lungo shot pours 2.8 ounces. If temperature is important to you, you'll be happy knowing the milk and espresso temperatures are relatively good. However, we suggest preheating your cup for those that want it really hot.
Also important to mention, this Keurig uses Lavazzo espresso pods only. The good news is, people love the taste. And, they come in Classico, Intenso, Delicato, and decaf.
Color: Unfortunately, the Rivo doesn't have any color options to choose from. Instead, it has a black and chrome design, which we think is pretty classic.
Price: This Keurig coffee maker comes with a $159 price. Although this may seem like a lot, it's actually super affordable for an espresso machine. Most higher-end espresso machines average roughly $500 and some even cost over $2,000.
Also, when you think about the cost of lattes at your local coffee shop, you'll be saving a ton.
