Ninja Coffee Bar
The Ninja Coffee Bar is a counter-top filter coffee machine designed to deliver a rich, tasting and smooth coffee brew at home.
From an aesthetics point of view, this coffee machine is not one of those machines that is designed for beauty or a timeless piece to show off to your friends like the Delonghi or Cuisinart coffee makers. Made of a mixture of plastic and stainless steel, the coffee maker is designed more for the ease of use and to be functional.
You have a choice of 3 colors, Black, Stainless Steel or Stainless & Black.
The coffee machine is quite large as it stands in at 14.75 inches tall and 9.5 inches wide and 8.75 inches deep.
On the left side of the coffee machine is a big filter basket with a circular heating element to keep your coffee warm. Positioned on the right is the water tank which is removable for easy filling for water. Underneath the tank are all the controls and settings which are very intuitive and easy to operate.
Types of Coffee
With its patent-pending brewing technology it claims it can deliver better and richer tasting coffee without bitterness for a variety of coffee drinks.
There are 4 different modes in which you can choose from
- Classic - Drip coffee
- Rich - Richer and stronger flavor than the classic but maintain its smoothness
- Over Ice - Ice Coffee
- Speciality - Cappuccinos, flat whites and lattes
Choice of Sizes
One of our favorite options is its choice of sizes where you can choose from a cup, travel mug, half carafe to a full carafe. With its Auto IQ function it will automatically calculate the right amount of water to extract.
How it works
Operations is very easy to use and similar to the way you would use most drip coffee machines. Simply fill the water container, add the coffee and choose the settings for the desired coffee you want to brew.
On activation, the coffee machine heating element will start up and begin dripping water for 20 seconds. Then it will stop for about 15 seconds, which is designed on purpose before proceeding to brew the coffee.
It can take upto 6 minutes to brew your coffee depending on the size and mode you selected.
For specialty drinks like lattes and cappuccinos it also comes with a milk frother which simply aerates the milk allowing you to make coffeehouse-style drinks. However for the coffee connoisseur for true cappuccino you need a real frother which both heats and aerates the milk like the Epica Automatic Electric Milk Frother.
