When I set out to get myself a coffee maker I was looking for something cheap. I didn’t expect anything within my price range to offer any kind of value, but the Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer Thermal Carafe really blew my mind! The value that this machine offers is incredible, with a price point that is lower than pretty much anything else I saw out there but at the same time the quality of this product was more high end than some of the expensive coffee machines I perused.
One thing that blew my mind about this machine was how easily customizable it was. I could choose from three different cup sizes, whichever one fit my preference, and I could also brew an entire pot if that caught my fancy. The great thing is that whatever cup size I chose, even if I chose to brew a whole pot, the machine was smart enough to automatically detect how much water I needed and fill itself up to that point. This feature really caught my eye as it made the whole process so much more convenient. I feel like a good coffee machine is supposed to make the process easier for you, enable you to save time in the long run. This is exactly what this machine has managed to do!
Pros and Cons
There are also four distinct styles of coffee that you can make using this machine. You have your regular coffee, of course, but you can also use the settings of the machine to make iced coffee with no extra effort on your part. You can also opt for a rich brew, which is basically a thicker, foamier coffee similar to a cappuccino, or you can go for the “special” coffee which is a lot stronger and is quite frankly my favorite coffee from this machine.
Some things I didn’t like about the coffee maker include the fact that it doesn’t do well with oiler, darker roasted beans. These beans actually don’t cook well at all with this coffee maker which can be a problem if you are into that sort of thing. I was a little disappointed to, but I was saving so much money with this machine that I honestly didn’t care. As long as you go for a medium roast that’s not all that oily you should be fine! This machine is really easy to clean out too, so you wouldn’t have to worry about a thing as long as you are using the right kind of coffee bean.
All in all, Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer is pretty much a must have. At a price like this getting so much quality is nothing short of ridiculous, and the machine is pretty sturdy too so you won’t have to worry about replacing it for a while. It worked for me and I am quite glad with my purchase; I am pretty sure that if you buy this coffee maker it is going to suit your needs too!
