Are you someone who just can't get their day going without a delicious cup of coffee? My husband is definitely one of those people! Every morning he's in the kitchen brewing coffee, then he has to make the decision if he wants it black or wants the addition of sweetened creamers. Decisions, decisions! Part of the fun of having coffee is having those options to change it up each day. If you are like Jason, you are going to LOVE the new Ninja Coffee Bar™!

Ninja Coffee Bar

Ninja® is transforming the way Americans brew coffee with the Ninja Coffee Bar.  Ninja® has completely reinvented traditional drip coffee makers by designing a machine to unlock coffee’s full flavor potential and provide smooth, rich and well-balanced coffee in the size and style that you want. Perfect for daily coffee drinkers and coffee lovers, with the Ninja Coffee Bar you can choose a cup, a travel mug or a carafe, and you can choose from a variety of brew styles. From classic rich hot coffee, to refreshing Over Ice Brew or even delicious hot milk-based and frozen blended specialty drinks, you can do it all with one machine.

Ninja Coffee Machine

Aside from the coffee bar looking sleek and modern, what we were amazed by is its Thermal Flavor Extraction™ technology which uses automated controls for Temperature Calibration, Pre-Infusion, and Even Coffee Saturation which unlocks your coffee's full flavor potential with every brew! The Auto-iQ™ One Touch Intelligence lets you select the size of your cup (standard, travel, half pot, full pot), your brew type (classic, rich, over ice, specialty), and then the Ninja Coffee Bar­­™ automatically adjusts for the correct amount of water use. 


Additional features of the Ninja Coffee Barinclude: 

·         Easy-Fill Brew Basket – Slide out to quickly and easily fill with your favorite coffee grounds or fully remove for effortless cleaning. 

·         Removable Water Reservoir with Auto-Metering – No need to measure or constantly refill.

·         Drip Stop – Stops the flow of coffee from the brew basket, allowing you to pour a cup mid-brew. 

·         Multi-Serve Cup Platform – Easily pulls down so you can brew directly into your favorite mug or cup.

·         Programmable Delay Brew – Pre-set to brew automatically up to 24 hours in advance in any size.

·         Intelligent Clean Cycle Indicator – Alerts you when your brewer senses that it needs to be cleaned. 

·         Ninja Easy Frother™ – Transform milk into rich creamy foam for your favorite indulgent specialty beverage.

o    Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Carafe keeps your coffee hot for hours, ideal for entertaining; not including Intelligent Warming Plate.
·         Ninja Cup Options:
o    12 oz. insulated mug with handle
o    14 oz. insulated cup
o    Stainless Steel 16 oz. Travel Mug
o    Hot and Cold 18 oz. Insulated Tumbler™

The box also contained a booklet with 40 scrumptious coffeehouse-style recipes. I made the Caramel Macchiato recipe for Mariah, and it was love at first sip! I then brewed Jason his regular black brew. He was so impressed with the way it turned out, he kept asking if I did anything different than I do with our normal coffee maker because he loved how delicious it brewed. He was immediately sold!

I admit, I am not a hot coffee drinker. However, give me any iced coffee any day of the week and I'm a happy camper! I'm embarrassed to think about how much I've spent at the local coffee shops, or even on those refrigerated bottles of coffee I buy from the grocers. I decided to try my hand at making my own iced coffee using the cold brew feature, and OMG! It was AMAZING! Never will I buy another iced coffee from the shops again!


Ingredients:

3/4 Cup Cold Brewed Coffee
1 1/2 Tablespoons White Chocolate Chips (I use Ghirardelli)
2 Tablespoons Caramel Sundae Topping
1 Tablespoon Sugar
2 Tablespoons 1/2 & 1/2
whipped cream and shaved chocolate for topping (optional)

Directions:

Melt chocolate in double-broiler over low heat until smooth. Pour melted chocolate and caramel sauce into coffee; stir until incorporated. Add 1/2 and 1/2 and sugar; stir until incorporated. Top with whipped cream. Garnish with chocolate shavings if desired. Serve immediately.

If my family's seal of approval doesn't work for you, maybe Emmy-nominated Sofia Vergara's will! An avid coffee lover, Sophia Vergara has partnered with SharkNinja in promotion of the new Ninja Coffee Bar­­™!


The new Ninja Coffee Bar will be available nationwide at major retailers and directly through SharkNinja starting this September.

How would you use the new Ninja Coffee Bar™? Would you brew hot or cold first?

    1. He definitely loved it. The coffee tasted soooo much better than his normal brew. He thinks the technology helped take the bitterness out of the flavor. And, of course, since Vergara loves it, he would too. You know that's his imaginary girlfriend lol!

  7. Oh my! That's way cool compared to my 15 year old coffee pot. I like warm coffee over ice coffee, but I like them both. Really it's just whatever mood I'm in.

  25. ok, I'm not a coffee person but most of my family and friends are and I just bought this because I do love cappuccino and I I've made me 2 cappuccinos so far so I got that down packed. Now can anyone tell me instructions on how to just brew a regular cup of coffee & milk??? Do I just have to Drip Stop it when it's 1/2 way thru in the cup so I can add the milk? Or is there another way?? Thank you :-)

    1. Hi emflaca. I don't think my husband had had that issue with brewing a regular cup. You should be able to turn the dial to the cup setting, then hit classic brew. Is it filling up your cup too much where you can't add in the milk once it's brewed because it will overflow? If so, you may want to change cup sizes or I'd do the Drip Stop like you mentioned.

  26. I am a huge ninja fan so it was natural for me to jump on this coffee maker.. I love coffee and have gone through quite a few coffee makers at home. One thing I really like about the Ninja Coffee Bar is that in the morning I can brew the coffee directly into my travel mug, grab it and run out the door.
