Make The Holidays A Little Easier With The Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer System
Be your own Barista with a Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer System
My motto is – Coffee is Life. I am a huge fan of coffee and drink a lot of it. I will admit that I am a fan of a certain coffee machine that will remain nameless but when I had a chance to try out the Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer System, I jumped at it! Not only does it make a lot of different coffees but it also has a built in frother. This system makes you a barista right in your own kitchen!
Setting up was a breeze. Really, you just take it out of the box and plug it in. You can’t get any easier than that. Honestly, the hardest part was figuring out what kind of coffee I wanted to make. After much thought, I decided to go with my favorite – Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Cappuccino with extra foam and cream. Yum! First, let me start by saying this is a pod-free brewing system. You can use your own coffee and it has a washable filter so you won’t need to buy filters either. I can honestly say in the month I have had it I have saved over 127.00 by not buying pods. That is reason enough to love it but of course, I have more reasons!
The water reservoir is very simple to use. You just lift it off of the machine and fill. It comes with handy measure markings so you can fill it for just the size you need. The sizes are varied. From a single serve 8 oz cup all the way to a full pot. Single serve cup, you ask? I forgot to mention that. While it doesn’t use pods, it does make single serve cups of coffee. So you can make less and waste less.
It also comes with 3 settings in addition to your sizes. Classic brew, which makes just the standard cup of coffee, Rich brew which actually steeps the coffee and gives you a stronger, bolder flavor, and my new favorite, Over Ice Brew. Over ice brew is amazing because you can have iced coffee without the ice watering it down!Another great feature I love is the specialty brews. The cafe forte makes its very strong and specialty makes it even stronger. Specialty gives you almost an espresso feel. It is great for super strong drinks. I used cafe forte to make the Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Cappuccino.
The Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer System also has the features of regular coffee machines. There is a delay brew setting so you can wake up to your coffee, a stay warm setting so your coffee will stay warm, and the one setting I absolutely adore- the clean setting! This brewer will let you know when it senses a calcium build up by illuminating the clean button. It is an amazing thing! Cleaning is a snap too! You fill the reservoir with 16 oz of vinegar and then the rest is water. Do not exceed the maximum fill line though. Then you just press clean and the brewer does everything for you! It only takes about 8 minutes. It is pretty awesome.
The over ice brew is my favorite setting but my favorite THING on this machine is the built-in frother! It is so easy to use. Just heat your milk and press the button. I am in love! It makes rich, fluffy froth that is perfect for all of those cafe creations!
Just froth and pour! Squee!
