Rivo™ System's Features
The Keurig® Rivo™ System, which is named to evoke the Italian word for
revolutionary, is one of the only at-home premium espresso brewers in
its price range (
To make true espresso, a brewing machine must be a high pressure system, forcing hot water through a finely ground blend of specially blended and roasted coffee. The Keurig® Rivo™ System brews rich Lavazza Italian espresso with up to 15 bars of pressure and each Rivo™ pack contains approximately 7.5 grams of a unique blend of 100 percent Arabica beans, packed and freshly sealed to preserve optimum quality of taste.
To make authentic cappuccinos, or lattes, fresh milk has to be frothed using high-temperature steam. The Keurig® Rivo™ System optimally froths the milk with a combination of hot steam and a high speed spinning whisk. The Rivo™ System delivers delicious espresso-based beverages with exceptionally long-lasting foam and ideal in-cup temperatures.
The combination of fresh milk and espresso-blend Rivo™ packs, crafted by Lavazza exclusively for the Rivo™ System, offer users the breadth of choice to brew up to 32 authentic espresso-based beverage options at the touch of a button in under two minutes.
