Rated 5 out of 5 by love gigi Worth every penny
I bought this as a gift to myself before christmas, hoping to save a few $$ and break away from Starbucks. I was kind of leary and almost went for a more expensive brand/maker. SO happy I bought the Rivo! It's quick, easy and I can get the pods at Amazon lickety split. I had a blast making different flavored lattes and cappachinos. for everyone christmas eve! Now the only time I stop in to Starbucks is when I want to buy one of their syrups for my lattes at home. They may not offer their pumpkin spice latte now, but I can still make my own at home with their syrup i bought!
Rated 5 out of 5 by SpanishDiva Best gift I've received!
Got this as a X-mas gift from my son last X-mas. It is absolutely great! Sits on the kitchen counter without being too big. I only wish there were other flavors made for this system. I usually find only the intenso, classico or decaf pods and they come in a box of 18, which can get really expensive. Are there any other flavors for this system and does QVC carry them?

I love this machine. It is so much fun serving guests Lattes and Cappucinos! I feel spoiled just having it sit next to regular Keurig! (at least my friends think I am!)

I love this coffee brewer! I am extremely satisfied! In fact I bought a second for our RV. I do not want to be without it while traveling! The taste of the lattes are just perfect The frothed milk is delicious.
Rated 5 out of 5 by foamjunkie so glad i got this!
I actually look forward to getting up in the morning. I have a latte every morning....this machine is perfect for me. I am no expert on these makers, but I'd bet anything this is just as good as any other overly priced high end machine.
one thing, is there a filter for this?

Rated 2 out of 5 by happi Multiple Problems
I REALLY want this to work as I have yearned for an espresso maker for decades. Years ago bought the cheap home brewer type that never did the job.
Saw this in March and jumped on it. Problem with frother; Keurig sent me a second one. Good customer service.
Bigger problem is that the pods are not puncturing properly; been on the phone with Keurig three times and I've just started using the machine for about a week. They tell me to try this. try that. The pods only puncture on one side, so I have to pull out the bin, put the wet pod back in again and HOPE the second try works.
I'm starting to consider returning the machine to QVC. Too expensive to require so much trouble. I would recommend this product IF it worked properly.

After about 4 months I had to return this item. The frother stopped working and would not even heat the milk. I wish I had spent the extra dollars and gotten a better brand to start with.

Who needs to stop by and pay $5 for a latte now-not me. This tastes better than those high dollar coffees. I'm so happy with my Christmas gift. I have this every morning and I'm saving so much money!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emf This machine is incredible !
This is not a "use any kind of pod" coffee maker. It is what the title says it is: a coffee machine to make espresso-Cappucino or Latte.I lived in Italy for more than 10 years. I have purchased soooo many coffee makers, Italian high end espresso machines, other pod type American coffee makers etc in a never ending search for my morning Latte/Cappucino/espresso that tasted like the ones I enjoy in Italy, without any luck. I read the reviews about the Rivo and decided to try it.
In addition to our super high standards as to the quality of the finished product we hoped for, my daughter is a seasoned Barista at that place you spend $every morning, so any machine that comes into this house is going to get a workout AND be looked at from a professional standpoint as well.
We eagerly opened the box, inside a box, inside a box- well packaged FYI- and set up the Rivo. Having read all the instructions for priming and prepping the machine, we took it for a spin. The Barista decided to use whole milk on one coffee and 2% on another to evaluate the foam production. Lavazza pods were used in all preparations. This is hometown coffee in Italy, super quality, never bitter.
As per the instructions, and the Barista ha ha, always froth the milk FIST before you pull the espresso shot otherwise you are consuming a "dead" shot which tastes different (icky).
Now to the foam test:
2% milk produced decent froth for a latte or an espresso macchiato. The whole milk had "stuck to your inverted spoon" GLORIOUS foam. The kind that makes even the last drop in the cup seem like you are in a cafe in Italy. Yes, that good.
The cold frothing for iced lattes works like a charm, just follow the instructions for pulling the shot (into a cup NOT a glass with ice ) and you will be enjoying your cold drinks too.
If you are a "dbl pump of hazelnut with white chocolate peppermint and chocolate sprinkles" latte drinker take heart, syrups can be ordered from the manufacturer so you can have that $9 dollar treat at home for a fraction of the price.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Zemog2012 Misleading Description
This is a suggestion for QVC to retitle the description of this item. It is NOT a coffee maker as noted in the title. You can brew espresso and make cappuccino and latte drinks, but if you want a regular cup of coffee, you are out of luck. I bought this unit, thinking that it was the whole package, making the espresso drinks and regular coffee since "coffeemaker" is in the title. Please do your customers a favor and retitle the description.
