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.

The Rivo can only be used with Rivo capsules from Keurig. The Rivo isn't compatible with any other Keurig capsule type. And, no one else is currently making Rivo compatible capsules. If you are a Keurig club member you get a discount which when using the free shipping option when ordering $45.00 or more at a time will get the capsules down to approx. $0.80 per capsule. A very good price when compared to an espresso or cappuccino from Starbucks or other specialty stores.

It is the complete system for making many different types of expresso and cappachino . It has a very easy set of directions that is easy to follow. You will need to order your special Rivo coffee capsules because the grocery stores only have the K cup refills which will not fit in the Rivo.

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.

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.

I can't speak for the company but I would assume this answer is no. This model is made specifically to make cappuccinos and lattes. The coffee pods are made to imitate pulling espresso shots which operates differently than the normal single cup coffee machines. I don't know of any other type of drink that is made like espresso shots. You can however use the milk frother separately from the espresso shots. I make my son hot chocolates all the time just using the frother. But if it's just the frother you're interested in, many companies make and sell standalone milk frothers.

Yes it can. I haven't made it though. I love, love this machine. A tip I learned to make the milk froth was to microwave the milk before running it in he keurig

Linda: Do you mean just brew the pods without frothing the milk? If that's what you mean the answer is, yes. If you brew just a pod with the short button (front left) you get and espresso (Italian style coffee). With the front right button you get Lunggo (known in Italy as an Americano) which is basically twice the water of the espresso so it is not as intense a flavor. A Lunggo IS NOT an American style coffee. This machine doesn't make regular coffee. Only espresso and espresso based drinks like cappuccino's, latte's, etc... I hope this answers your question.
