Definitely not, Jana. It only runs the Rivo-size capsules. They are all espresso types, and it's only designed to pump espresso type shots. The best you can do is a Caffe Americano, which is espresso+water.

Reusable?? Not sure what you mean. The machine, yes. I use it 2 or 3 times a day! Best thing in my kitchen. The rivo coffee packs are a one time use only.

No, they cannot be done simultaneously...there is only 1 pump. You can do either function first. I preferred milk first, then put the shot directly into the frothed milk.

The espresso is excellent. You can prepare it in two strengths: 1) knock your sock offs and 2) strong. My machine works fast and effectively and the coffee is very full bodied and rich in flavor.

It only uses the specific pods, which are not like any others. To make a regular coffee you have to make an espresso and add hot water, basically make an americano. I haven't found any tea pods yet.

The milk pitcher and frothing wand have to be cleaned after each use of the frother. I personally just rinse it out thoroughly and let it dry, or give it a run through the dishwasher when convenient. Also, the drip tray/pod bin has to be emptied every 8-10 pods. Just dump the bin and rinse it and the drip tray. They can also be run through the dishwasher. In all, it's more than a K-Cup machine, but not at all arduous or difficult.

No need to use the Rivo syrups. Use any syrups you want. I find that the Torani and DaVinci syrups are great.

almond milk does not get as frothy as regular milk, but I use it.
