Keurig Rivo Espresso Machine from Keurig and Lavazza
Over in the Single Serve Coffee Forums yesterday one of our community members posted Keurig Rivo Espresso Machine Available Soon? We thought the Rivo Espresso machine from was coming soon, but we didn't expect pictures and information regarding the machine in October. Lavazza has taken down the pages since yesterday - so maybe the Rivo isn't ready for prime time just yet, but we're glad we got the details on this new amazing espresso maker.
The design of the machine looks like a combo of espresso maker and milk frother. The machine has a milk frothed pitcher in it much like the Nespresso Lattissima, and it looks like there is going to be 4 blends of espresso at launch. We have no details on pricing just yet, and we're not sure when it will launch either.
Four blends of espresso available for the Keurig Rivo Espresso Machine from Keurig and Lavazza:
- ESPRESSO CLASSICO - A full-bodied coffee blend with notes of tropical fruit, sweet floral qualities, and a lingering finish.
- ESPRESSO INTENSO - A bold, full-bodied coffee blend with aromas of butter and caramel.
- ESPRESSO DELICATO - Slightly sweet coffee blend with notes of chocolate and a long lasting citrus finish. Rainforest Alliance Certified.
- ESPRESSO DECAF - A balanced coffee blend with sweet aromas of grape and dried fruit.

And I thought the VUE was a gigantor behemoth. With that you’d only have to put your Kitchenaide mixer away in order to get it on your counter. With this thing you would probably have to put away your microwave too. What’s next, a Keurig the size of a refrigerator? Seems to me like you would be better off getting a real espresso maker with a real frother if you’re looking for a genuine espresso drink. For simplicity I’ll be sticking with my Tassimo. I’m not willing to separate with 4 times the money and sacrifice 3 times the counter space for something that will only create a marginally better capp.
Do you hear that? It's the sound of my wallet SCREAMING in anticipation of the yet to be announced sticker price.
I'm thinking if the Nespresso Lattissima+ is $400 and the Keurig Vue V700 is now $230 that this new Rivo machine might be priced around $330-350 to remain "competitive"?
I am soooo very tempted to buy one regardless since Lavazza is my all-time favorite espresso brand, but I'm not sure if my budget can withstand the sticker shock once it finally hits. Now all that remains to be seen is if this machine will be a USA-only exclusive like the Vue or if it'll also be released in Canada (they better hurry, the Sbux Verismo hits store shelves here Oct. 16).
Awesome news scoop from the forums, though. :-)
