Ever since Mike purchased a coffee shop inside our local Civic Center I have become a bit... obsessed with coffee. Between ordering different flavors to try, mixing up new concoctions (macchiato anyone?!) and testing our different roasts, coffee has seemed to take over my life a bit. (And don't even get me started on my need for bulletproof coffee) The problem, though... Java Hut is only open on the weekends... and only 6 months out of the year. That has left me longing for a good cup of joe half the year! Not anymore! When I went to TypeA East this year I had the pleasure of meeting up with Ninja - makers of the new Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer System. Even as someone who has been "slingin caffeine" with a top of the line espresso machine for nearly four years now, I was blown away by what this little machine can do. Once I got it home, I was even more blown away and have been loving mixing up different concoctions day and night. From hot coffee first thing in the morning to an afternoon iced delight to keep me going... I am in love. There is no doubt this is a must have for coffee lovers like me.
The next-generation Ninja Coffee Bar® is more than a coffeemaker. It's a coffee system—complete with a variety of brew types and sizes, a built-in frother, and tons of delicious coffee recipes you can create and enjoy at home.
I received the Ninja Coffee Bar System with Glass Carafe to review. It lets you brew six different sizes and the Auto-iQ® uses just the perfect amount of water for each - you can even have a single serve without having to use a pod! How cool is that? You can brew one single cup, an extra large cup, the entire glass carafe - you can even brew directly into the extra large 22oz tumbler that comes with it - which is perfect for taking your coffee on the go. The Auto-iQ® will give you the perfect brew every time.
The part I love the most about the Ninja Coffee Bar System though is the built in frother right on the side. At Java Hut we froth our milk using a super hot steamer... so there is no way to get deliciously frothy milk in an iced drink. Since Iced Hazelnut Lattes are my drink of choice in the afternoons, I have loved getting to froth up my milk for the perfect latte at home.
