Simple to Use
Instructions are simple and the machine is easy to set up and operate. It brews an espresso in about 15 seconds, and takes 2 min. and 2 button pushes to make a fresh latte or cappuccino. You just need to fill the reservoir with water, put milk in the container, and insert it into the machine. Press your froth type button and in minutes you will enjoy your favorite drink. If you are using milk, it takes less than a minute to make great foam. Various drinks can be made following the included recipe guide.
The frother has three settings: cappuccino (warm with lots of foam), latte (more milk, less foam), and a setting for cold foam.
Rivo System disposes of the pods in a compartment that is out of view, so you don’t have to remove the used pod before each new brew. The foaming mechanism is quiet and effective.
What cups can be used with the Rivo 500?
The machne only runs the Rivo Packs. There are only 4 types of pods available for Rivo System: Delicato, Classico, Intenso and Decaf. The flavors are clearly different and accord with their descriptions. Rivo Keurig comes with a dozen of R cups, which are 3 of each of the four flavor types. You also get one Free Keurig Rivo Sweet Additions Gourmet Syrup Variety pack.
You don’t have to clean Rivo Keurig daily like other machines and it takes about a minute to clean it. Slide off the machine the latte container and equipment that touches the milk (stirrer and steam wand) and clean quickly. Most parts are dishwasher safe and each item is labeled whether it is, or not. The pitcher is only component that must be cleaned after every session. The latte container, stirrer and steam wand slide off the machine and clean easily.
