Just this year, Keurig demonstrated once again that they are the leaders of innovative brewer designs by introducing a new coffee maker model.
The K-Cafe™ Single Serve Coffee, Latte, & Cappuccino Maker still excels at brewing the same single and travel mug-sized cups the Keurig brand is known for, but with a new feature that expands the machine’s capabilities. With this latest model, you can now make cappuccinos quickly and conveniently with your Keurig – no other equipment necessary.
Available K-CupⓇ Cappuccino Flavors
You can use any of your favorite K-CupⓇ pods to brew your own cappuccinos at home. Keurig has also developed four new specialized K-CupⓇ flavors that are perfect for your daily cup of joe: two from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (the Visa 44 N Espresso Roast and Vanilla Espresso blends), and two from Caribou Coffee (Real Inspiration Blend Espresso and Caramel Espresso Roast).
Note that K-CarafeⓇ pods, K-MugⓇ pods, CueⓇ pods, and RivoⓇ pods are not compatible with the K-Cafe Single Serve Coffee, Latte, & Cappuccino Maker.
How To Make Cappuccinos With Your Keurig
You can still brew your regular old coffees by selecting the Single or Travel Mug options on your Keurig, but you’ll notice that there’s a new third option. The Shot function brews an extra-concentrated espresso shot in any flavor you choose. You’ll also see that the machine comes with an attached milk frother. These are the secrets to brewing perfect cappuccinos at home.
Follow these three easy steps, and you’ll soon be having your favorite custom blend every morning.
Step 1 – Brew your favorite K-CupⓇ flavor using the Shot function.
Step 2 – Heat your milk of choice (e.g. full cream, non-dairy, soy, almond) in the attached Keurig milk frother. Pour the hot milk into your coffee and scoop on the foam.
Step 3 – Enjoy your hot cup of Keurig cappuccino!
What Kinds of Cappuccinos Can I Make With Keurig?
Make a traditional cappuccino cup that is ⅓ coffee, ⅓ steamed milk, and ⅓ foam.
Also known as cappuccino chiaro, a wet cappuccino has less foam and more milk, making it much creamier like a latte.
A dry cappuccino, or cappuccino scurro, has less steamed milk and more foamed milk. The coffee will be stronger, bolder, and darker.
To make an iced cappuccino (or cappuccino freddo), add cold frothed milk to chilled coffee or blend the cappuccino with crushed ice.
