If you love cappuccino, espresso, and latte, check out the popular Keurig Rivo. This review will show why this machine is so popular.
Keurig is the undisputed leader in single serve coffee makers, so you know this is a great product if it bears that name.
First, this particular model received a popular 4+star rating from those that left a review. So let’s focus on the features that the reviewers liked and also didn’t like.
The Keurig people teamed with Lavazza, the king of Italian coffee roasters, to come up with the perfect beverage maker for your kitchen. You will no longer have to shell out $3 or $4 to your favorite hot beverage location, you know the one, to get your daily cup of espresso.
Before I go any further, watch this video from Keurig showing the many features of this appliance.
Now let’s look at what people like and don’t like about the Rivo. First with the 4+star rating, many more like it than not, but I want to share both sides to be fair. I will even start with some of the negatives. A few people said they would have liked it more if their beverage was hotter. But then another said they owned another machine and had to heat it in microwave to get it hot enough and this one had the perfect temperature, just different tastes for different people.
Of course there were some who wanted a stronger taste. As you know, people like their coffee beverages at different strengths. Some like it weak and others very strong. So there is no way to please everyone when using a pod.
Some complained about the container that is used when frothing the milk. They said it was turning cloudy after repeated use, but hand washing this helps keep it clear. Several said they didn’t like the syrups that came with the machine, but there are many alternatives.
Now for the features that people loved. Probably the biggest was how easy it was to use. This was especially true for those that had owned a different one before, saying the Keurig Rivo was so much easier to use and clean up. Let me add that this is presently in very short supply and may show out of stock when you read this, on the information page on Amazon, you can click this link and it will take you to other offers for this machine.
Moat people loved the many different drinks that the Rivo produced. It might take a few tries to get the perfect mix with just the right amount of milk and flavoring to suit your taste. People loved actually using real milk instead of the powders that some others used. For your convenience, I have included a chart comparing the Rivo with several other models, so you can see a side by side comparison of the features and prices. You might find that one of the other models will fit your needs better.
