“Whether they prefer cappuccinos, lattes, iced coffee, simple and fresh espressos, the options are limitless!” “To achieve the authentic, delicious taste of a cappuccino or latte, it starts with fresh ingredients—like rich espresso and frothy, steamed milk,” said Ennio Ranaboldo, CEO of Lavazza North America.

“Keurig Rivo system allows consumers to choose from an exclusive selection of authentic Lavazza espresso blends to brew rich Italian espresso and select their own fresh milk from their refrigerator for the perfect froth to craft their favorite beverages.”
