I am so excited to review the new Ninja Coffee Bar for you today! If you read my blog you know I love coffee. I drink it from the time I get up until the time I go to bed. I go from hot in the morning to iced in the afternoon, and then some type of hot specialty coffee at night. I use a few different machines throughout the day which can make it a pain, but that has all changed since I started using the Ninja Coffee Bar!
The Ninja Coffee Bar allows me to make a carafe of hot coffee in the morning, then a few iced coffees throughout the day and then a latte or two at night; all in ONE machine! Now I can clean off the counter and have only one machine on there which makes it so much easier. I’ll be honest, I actually wondered how one machine could make all the types of coffee drinks I enjoy, but it does, and it does an amazing job!
Let’s start with the design: it’s sleek, fits right under the counter, and doesn’t need to be pulled out to put the coffee in or even to refill the water reservoir. This uses regular coffee grounds (which I love!) so you can still enjoy your favorite brand that you’re drinking right now. It has a reusable coffee filter too so there’s no need for a special cup. This actually pulls out from the machine, and is one of my favorite features!
Next we have the brew types: Classic brew has a smooth, rich, balanced flavor from your favorite ground coffee. Rich Brew has a slightly more intense flavor richness than Classic Brew. Over Ice is where the concentration level jumps to 2x the flavor richness of Classic Brew to account for ice. Specialty Brew has a super-rich concentrate which is about 3x the flavor richness of Classic Brew, yielding significantly less volume.
I’ve tried to brew hot coffee over ice before, but it always turns out bitter so I started cold brewing for my iced coffees. When I tried this I thought it would taste the same way, but it didn’t! It wasn’t bitter at all. I wondered if every cup would taste that good, and yes, we have made so many iced coffees and they all taste divine.
Plus it has a frother for all those specialty drinks that I love so much.
The Ninja Easy Frother™ features Press Froth
Technology, with microwave-safe glass allowing you to heat, pump, and
transform everyday milk into perfect microfoam, creating those
coffeehouse specialty beverages easily in your own home.
Auto-iQ™ One-Touch Intelligence by Ninja®. Once you choose the size and brew, it draws just the right amount of water needed from the reservoir,
based on the brew size (from cup to travel mug to carafe) and brew type you select. Which makes the perfect cup every time!
