Happy National Cappuccino Day!

By Hannah Hassler

I set out today to test my new Keurig® Rivo® machine here in our office. I have to admit I was a little intimidated at first and carefully followed the beautifully designed Recipe Book that accompanies each new brewer. I was certain that I was going to screw up the brewing and frothing every which way, but I honestly was pleasantly surprised at how ridiculously easy it was to design and create a frothy, creamy, cappuccino and latte at the touch of a button.  I decided to start off trying the Rivo Espresso Classico pack and paired it with whole milk. I followed carefully the recipe on page 19 of the Recipe Guide:

  1. Prepare a short espresso (1.4oz) in a 12oz mug
  2. Pour cold milk to Min Fill on the frother pitcher and replace the frother lid
  3. Return the sealed pitcher to the system and press the Cappuccino Froth Button
  4. After a few magical, spinning moments – remove the milk frother and carefully pour over the espresso

Voila! Cappuccino! I was seriously impressed, and of course tried to get that pretty little leaf design on my first try (failed at that one, but I still think it looks pretty!). With such ease my mind was racing at the endless flavor and pairings I could come up with…Mint, Mocha, Caramel, Chocolate…the list is endless now that I have the basics down. Thank goodness that I can also get the Rivo® flavor syrups to go along with it!

If you’re new to a proper cappuccino or latte, or even a lifelong veteran, the Rivo® Cappuccino & Latte System surely will change your world, no kidding – it’s that easy to get your Cappuccino fix right in your own home.
