Keurig Rivo Cappuccino & Latte System w/ 84 Rivo Packs & 6 Syrups
I received this machine for Christmas and have been using it everyday for the past month. Froths milk and soy milk beautifully. Easy to use and clean. I absolutely love this machine. Thank you Keurig for bringing this item to QVC.
Needs some tweaking by Keurig
The Rivo has some nice features and other not so great ones.
First, the coffee size is so small. I know Cappuccino and Latte's are not supposed to be large, but what came out of this machine was tiny. I drink de-caf and the limited availability of coffees was discouraging since I don't like the only one that is currently available. The Rivo isn't well known yet, therefore buying coffee is only available on line.
I liked the frothing feature but found myself making a cup of dark roast in my regular Keurig and then frothing the milk with the Rivo.
It's a large machine and takes up a fair amount of counter space. Since I wasn't really using it enough for the coffee, I sent it back. Instead I bought a frother and use it along with my Keurig Platinum, which I love.
If Keurig does some tweaking with the Rivo, I would consider trying again. They need more coffee options, cup size choices and hotter frothed milk.
Love <3 LUV My RIVO!!
How wonderful to create my own quality espresso drinks at home -- and it's easy too! This machine stands up to the quality of Keurig. I've had a home espresso machine in the past and while I loved the results it was a pain to operate & clean. FANTASTIC!! I love this product!
Best Christmas Gift
This Keurig is great. The machine came with easy to follow instructions. So easy to use and so easy to clean after each use. The cappuccinos & lattes are delicious. Best Christmas gift ever! And the system came with so many Rivo packs & syrups so we could make many types of delicious beverages.
I should not have waited so long to purchase this machine.
Simply the best.
I confess to being a coffee snob. This is the best machine I've ever owned. And I've owned many, including a top of the line multi thousand dollar automatic machine when we lived in Europe. This is easy to understand and clean and makes excellent cappuccinos, espressos and lattes. I am very happy with my purchase. Thanks, QVC.
I give the Rivo one star because the idea is good, however it does not come through in actual function. It brewed a good enough tasting espresso. Be aware though it is not a lot you have to brew two long to get a decent amount of espresso. The frothing element of the machine is its real downfall. I had to call Keurig and get a new one because the frothing stem to the lid of the pitcher was broke. Once I got a new one it did not froth my Almond milk or Soy. It says everywhere that it will, but it doesn't. Trust me, I tried all the tips and advice. I used to have an espresso machine and made awesome Capps. & Lattes. This machine is not ready. Much more testing needs doing. By the way I tried fat free milk and got a super great froth, but I can't drink cows milk I needed it to froth non dairy milk as I was promised it would. I am getting myself a quality frother and both my Rivo machine are going back! Big mistake. Oh and it is noisy and too much effort for such a small coffee. If you have a spouse that also wants one you have to first wash the frothing pitcher and dry itthen you can begin making another one, by then yours is cold or drunk as its small. You need a second frothing pitcher if you want to brew two efficiently. On tv they have like six machines lined up going and lift over frothing pitchers for brewing, never do they use an unwashed pitcher it must be cleaned after each coffee, what a pain. This takes the joy right out of a relaxing cup of coffee.
YAHOO FOR RIVO!
I had been waiting for Rivo and wow was it worth it. It is everything I thought it would be. There are so many things to love about it. First, the coffee is wonderful. You feel like you are drinking a fancy coffee at a coffee house and you are in your house. How great is that?Next it can't be easier to use. Just pop the pod in and that's it. Best of all- the clean up. There isn't any. Yahoo for Rivo!!!!
Excellant machine,Lousy espresso
Purchased this machine with expectations of having some excellent coffee drinks. Sorry to say for me the espresso chosen was not to my taste. I own the VUE, and the lattes and the other coffee drinks taste so much better with the choice of coffee. for this machine. Sorry to say I will be returning the Rivo..
Keurig makes excellent machines but for me the coffee chosen was a real deal breaker.
I got mine today and within just a few minutes I had a delicious, restaurant quality Latte in my hands. It's so easy to set up and use. I already have a Keurig Platinum coffee maker that uses the KCups and a Mr. Coffee for just making a normal pot. I was looking at the Rivo for a long time and I'm so glad I found the great deal at QVC. Nice amount of pods, syrups and a good price. Thanks QVC!
Lavazza coffee is wonderful! Easy clean up and heats up in a moments time. Coffee is delicious and the cream on top of espresso is thick. Wonderful machine. Spend the money, you won't be disappointed!! Use it almost everyday in conjunction with our other keurig.
Hit of the Party!!!
Got it for my husband for xmas. Arrived in plenty of time. Ton of starter packs and when you register it with Keurig and buy 2 k-cup packs, you get two free!! Offered people some lattes or cappuccinos at our party, people declined only until they saw one made! They couldn't believe the look, taste and ease of use along with the fact it looked and tasted like you just went to Starbucks!!!
Highly recommend! Thanks QVC!
Better Than ****bucks!
No reason to go out and spend the big bucks for delectable cappuccinos and lattes when you have this Rivo machine at home. With very little practice, and including just a few seconds for the machine to warm up, you can have specialty coffee drinks in less than two minutes. This package, with its included Rivo packs and syrups, is also an excellent value. We've used 2% milk exclusively in the frother, and the end result has amazed us all. The Lavazzo brand expresso is outstanding and very familiar from our international travels. Even the INTENSO packs have no bitterness or over-roasted, burnt flavor. We know from years of experience with the brand that Keurig products are made to last; we've upgraded and given away earlier brewing system versions to friends and family, but never had a machine fail. There's no leakage from this Rivo, and it is totally easy to clean; used packs drop into a separate compartment for easy pull-out and rinsing after about a dozen uses. Totally delightful and HIGHLY recommended!
