K-Cups Control – Simple Or Complex? 

Revolutionary is the middle word ‘RIVO’, which simply tells us a lot about the brewer. revolution means change and Keurig rivo has brought change in the brewing industry as it is one of a kind. Using it is like upgrading yourself to a big fancy city with ease as using it is not complex the way living in a big city is, it carries the simplicity with itself. 

K-cups? 

as I mentioned above it is one of a kind it does not require k-cups as it does not use them and that’s the new thing about it. k-cups are replaced with rivo pack blends. Talking about the blends you get to choose which one you want, there are four types of blends. Delicato, intenso, classico, and deeaf. 

control – simple or complex? 

it is simple to use as all the buttons on the control panels have pictures on them and with the pictures on the panel there are instructions as well, there are 3 buttons on the top and 2 buttons below them, the above ones are for the Latte, Cappuccino, and Cold froth, and the other ones are for Lungo Espresso and Short Espresso. Two steps and your beverage is ready, this machine works like magic when it’s  frothing mode is on all the lights on the buttons light up. 

Cappuccino is more about foam and less about milk whereas the latte is the opposite of cappuccino and talking about the cold froth means more milk ( as the name says ‘cold’ ) and less foam. 

with this brewer, you do not need to add water all the time as it comes with a reservoir of 60 oz. This beautiful machine is all about convenience it comes with a one year warranty and all the parts are washer safe which simply means you can wash the parts in a dishwasher without worrying, it comes with a recipe book so that you can try different things and the best feature according to me is the automatic shut down even the milk frother works automatically and the pump this machine uses has the ability of producing 15 pressure bars. one touch and within minutes your beverage is going to be ready. a cold or hot beverage is what you need to decide and then press the button as this machine can make both. 

This machine is one of the best inventions of keruig, now for 3 different preferences, you do not need 3 different brewers as keruig rivo is the solution to all 3 preferences and it is even made up of some good material which makes it durable. 

one needs to follow some precautions so that the brewer can last for a very long period, for instance, cleaning the interior components every now and then ( preferably after Twelve or fourteen brews ) and the Frothing Pitcher needs cleaning after almost every use and the water reservoir must be cleaned every now and then. these are some of the things that one needs to keep in mind such things extend the lifespan of the brewer. 

Keurig K-cup vs Keurig Vue 

Keurig is one of the most reputed manufacturers of brewers, Keurig has so many options when it comes to single-serve brewers and the options leave people confused on one hand and overwhelmed on the other, one of the most common questions asked by people is about the difference b/w k-cup and Vue coffee maker, Vue and k-cups are one of the top-selling brewers that Keurig offers. This article is all about Vue and K-cups, here you will get to know what is similar between both of these brewers and what is the difference between both of these after reading this article you will be able to decide which one of these is the brewer for you. 

K-cup and vue by Keurig are one of the best single cup brewers, and often people get confused between these two. Both of these brewers have some features in common which makes them similar but on the large scale, they have their own identities which makes them different from each other. 

K-cup and Vue have 3 things in common 

a) single cup brewers

b) VUE and as well as k-cup use pods and capsules

c) Each one of these can be easily reprogrammed

That’s all about the similarities, now it’s time for the differences. 

A) Pods /Capcules

we all know both of these brewers use capsules and pods to brew coffee but the question is do they use the same type of pods? the answer is a big no as k-cup uses k-cups and VUE uses vue pods, the difference between both the pods is that vue is a new generation of k-cups they are k-cups only but an updated version. 

B) Buttons

K-cups by keurig comes with LCD display whereas VUE comes with a touchscreen which you can program 

C) Highlights

Vue offers an option of size 8, and even allows us to control the temperature and strength whereas k-cups offer size 5 and we can not control the temperature. 

 Vue and K-cups are quite similar when it comes to the features, for instance, both brew under sixty seconds but on the other hand both of these brewers are different from each other, for instance, one offers size 8 of cup and one only offers size 5, one gives full control of the temperature in our hand and one does not. 

Now the question is which one of these you should buy, I would suggest Vue as 

A) It gives you all the control, you want hot coffee you get it, you want extra hot coffee you still get it as you are the one who has the control over the temperature.

B) You can never recycle k-cups because they are not recyclable whereas Vue pods are recyclable.

C) K-cups offer LCD display which is average whereas Vue offers touch-screen, a colored touch screen is always better than an LCD display.

D) Vue can fill your travel mug whereas k-cup cannot as the last size that it offers is size 5
