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® 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.
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 Bar™ include:
· 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.

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!
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)
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.
