Keurig K-Latte Overview

Keurig tried to follow in Nespresso's footsteps with their Keurig Rivo brewer, which brewed specialty beverages like lattes and cappuccinos.

Unfortunately for Keurig, the Rivo proved too challenging to maintain as you needed special Rivo pods.

Instead, Keurig discontinued the Rivo and created their K-Cafe and K-Latte machines.

The K-Cafe is more feature-rich than the K-Latte, offering the following upgrades

  • 60 oz water reservoir
  • Strength Control for bolder brews
  • 12 oz brew size
  • Dishwasher-safe frother
  • 3 frothing modes (Latte, Capp, and Cold)

Essentially, the K-Cafe is designed to be a specialty beverage station.

The K-Latte mostly is a typical Keurig coffee maker with a "stronger coffee" button and a collapsible dock for the frother, which only has a single frothing mode for silky latte foam.

For comparison, the K-Cafe's frother has two additional modes for more aerated cappuccino foam and cold foam for iced beverages.

Pros
  • Includes Keurig's upgraded system for richer coffee and quieter brewing
  • No pod-scanning technology so brews both licensed and unlicensed K-Cup pods
  • Brews both single-serve coffee and concentrated shots for specialty beverages
  • Comes with Keurig frother attachment
  • Simplest brewer for the occasional specialty beverage
Cons
  • Max 10 oz brew size
  • Frother has just one frothing mode (and no cold froth option)
  • Small, rear-positioned 36 oz water reservoir is harder to access and refill
  • No Brew Strength or Temp Control
  • Doesn't come with a water filter kit

Is the Keurig K-Latte for you?

Is Keurig K-Latte for you?

The Keurig K-Latte is a no-frills option if you like to enjoy the occasional milk-based specialty beverage.

If you're looking for a more robust specialty beverage system, the K-Cafe has you covered with 3 frothing modes (including cold frothing for iced beverages) and a convenient dishwasher-safe frother.

Keurig K15

Keurig K15
Overall Rating: 80
One of Keurig's original "Mini" K-Cup models, the K15 has a max 10 oz brew size with its "fill before each use" reservoir. Now discontinued, the K15 has been replaced by the slimmer K-Mini, which brews up to 12 oz K-Cups.

Keurig K4000 Cafe

Keurig K4000 Cafe
Overall Rating: 91
Able to brew 4-12 oz coffees and 3 sizes of lattes and cappuccinos, the Keurig K4000 Cafe covers all of your customers' coffee needs. And with direct plumbing compatibility and auto-eject pods, it's easy on you, too.

Keurig K350

Keurig K350
Overall Rating: 85
One of our favorite values, Keurig 2.0 K300 series brewers are a big jump up from their K200 counterparts with a 60 oz reservoir, Temp Control, and more. Now discontinued, we recommend the Keurig K-Duo instead.

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
