Built-in Milk Frother
The Keurig K-Latte has upgraded its Rivo coffee maker with milk frother with this much flexible Keurig K-Latte.
This coffee maker has a collapsible built-in milk frother on the side to make keeping it easier on your kitchen countertops.
It is straightforward to use with a light indicator to tell you once the milk frother is done with whipping the smoothest milk for all your latte needs.
The remarkable thing about this milk frother is it whips vegan milk beautifully, just as it would do with regular dairy milk.
Multiple Single Cup Sizes
The Keurig K-Latte, with its sizable 60 fluid ounces water reservoir, will make you many cups of latte without having to refill the tank.
With its built-in milk frother, this coffee brewer can accommodate three cup sizes: 6, 8, and 10 oz coffee cups.
The drip tray can be taken off to accommodate any travel mugs with a height of 7 inches and below if you are running late and want your coffee to go.
Silent Coffee Machine
For people living in an apartment and you’re worried about walking up half your neighbors whenever you have that cup of coffee in the morning, the Keurig K-Latte won’t give that to you.
The Quiet Brew technology has been a mainstay and standard for Keurig coffee makers, but this particular model is more silent than usual.
All you can hear to indicate that the machine is working is the quiet whipping of your milk and the drip-drop sound of your brew quietly filling your mug.
The Keurig K-Latte is perfect to complement your quiet mornings.
Coffee Shot Mechanism
If you are in the mood for a more rich-tasting latte, that is possible with the Keurig K-Latte’s Coffee Shot setting.
All you need to do is click a button, and the coffee maker will give you something akin to espresso— a more powerful and more concentrated shot of whatever flavor K-cup pods you’re in the mood for that morning.
Adding your smooth frother milk in that shot will make for the perfect pick-me-up.
The Keurig K-Latte boasts of the Smart Start setting that takes the waiting off of your morning coffee routine.
The machine won’t have to wait for you to decide on what size before it starts brewing your coffee.
Who is it for?
The Keurig K-Latte is for people looking to upgrade their coffee maker to include a beginner-friendly milk frother that would change their coffee game completely.
This coffee maker is also for people who love creamier coffees and want a pretty straightforward and effortless way to have that.
A potential drawback to this Keurig coffee brewer with a built-in milk frother is the limited modes of its milk-frother.
It only has one mode that would make you smooth creamy milk for your latte, but it would not make you airier milk fit for a cappuccino or even a cold froth option for making iced coffee-based drinks.
The Keurig K-Latte is an affordable coffee maker that would give you the ability to make lattes at home in a straightforward and fuss-free way.
Usually, latte making comes with buying fancy equipment that costs a fortune, but with the Keurig K-Latte, you can have it at more than a fraction of the cost.

How do I make coffee with the Keurig K-Latte?
Making a latte in the Keurig K-Latte is done in three effortless steps.
The first step is to brew a coffee shot using your favorite K-Cup coffee pod.
Then, froth your choice of either fresh dairy or vegan milk using the built-in milk frother.
After all that, pour your frothed milk carefully on your cup of coffee.
Serve and enjoy!
How do I clean the Keurig K-Latte?
Cleaning your coffee brewer will benefit the machine’s longevity, so it’s essential to do it regularly.
First, use a soapy non-abrasive cloth to wipe down the exterior of your coffee machine.
Then you clean the drip tray by carefully taking it out of the machine and rinsing it in warm soapy water.
Remember to clean your water reservoir and the lid at least once a week; keep in mind to never dry the water reservoir with cloth as lint might be leftover.
To save time, you can always put both the water reservoir and the lid in the dishwasher as it is both top-rack dishwasher safe.
To descale by running a cleansing brew.
Run water only brew using the largest cup size as you wait for it to brew; clean the frother by running the silicon ring, the whisk, and the lid in warm soapy water.
The milk frother is not dishwasher safe, so make sure to hand wash it and wipe it dry gently to avoid damaging the protective coat inside the frother.
