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:
- Prepare a short espresso (1.4oz) in a 12oz mug
- Pour cold milk to Min Fill on the frother pitcher and replace the frother lid
- Return the sealed pitcher to the system and press the Cappuccino Froth Button
- 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.
