For today's lifestyle post I wanted to share with you my thoughts on
the Ninja Coffee Bar and show you a demo video of one of the many
drink recipes in the book. First off let me start by going over the
features this product claims to have.
-Auto-iQ one touch intelligence
-Thermal Flavor Extraction
-Pre-infusion & Coffee saturation
-Programmable Delay Brew
This coffee bar system retails anywhere from $149-$180 depending on where
you purchase yours from. The coffee bar system includes a Glass Carafe,
Reusable filter, Tumbler, Manual frother, Coffee scoop and a Recipe book.
When my husband and I first used this system we made a classic cup of
coffee, which is what he normally drinks. We had a little problem though,
there were a lot of coffee grounds in the bottom of his mug. After I read the
booklet though I used a different type of coffee and it was fine.
However, after using it a little more I really like that this system gives you
the option to make very different type of drinks rather than making the
same old cup of coffee on a regular coffee maker. I love that you can create
specialty drinks like the ones in those fancy coffee shops. It allows the
coffee to brew differently depending on the setting you choose & the type
of drink you want.
There were only a few things that I didn't like about this system.
-You have to rinse the filter after every use
-It does take about 5-7 minutes to brew a carafe
-Depending on the mug used, it splattered a lot
Those were the issues that I wasn't to thrilled about but even after all of that
I still like the system because we can make multiple specialty drinks in
the comfort of our home. No more having to spend $5 on a coffee I'm
craving when I can easily make it at home! I also really love that is has
the drip stop option because it will prevent the drips after you remove your
mug. Below is a video I made of the Ninja coffee bar system in action.
I made a Thai-Style Iced Coffee for the
video with a recipe from the book. Enjoy!!
