    Great coffee maker, especially for strong coffee

    My fiance and I purchased this coffee maker with the intentions of replacing an old drip coffee maker model that just stopped working one day. We were considering a Bunn coffee maker at first, simply because we wanted our coffee fast. We walked in the Best Buy and could not find a Bunn on the shelf, and the Ninja Coffee Bar just happened to be on sale. So we figured why not let's give it a try. The first pot of coffee we brewed was so incredibly strong that neither of us could tolerate it and we ended up dumping it down the drain. We actually had to experiment for a couple days, making several pots of coffee that we did not like. It turned out that in order to make the same type of coffee we were having with the old drip coffee maker, we had to use almost half the coffee grounds. Doing this allowed us to eliminate the bitterness, and we absolutely love the coffee it makes now! My suggestion is to not use the permanent filter, go ahead and buy some paper cone filters instead. To each his own, & I know everyone will have their own individual tastes, but I found the paper filters helped eliminate a lot of the bitterness that we were finding. Also the machine is very easy to clean. The basket comes out rather easy, and cleans up well. The water container I find pretty handy, it's pretty nice not having to fill the carafe with water and transporting it to the coffee maker. Also the electricity we save by not having the burner element running nonstop while the coffee maker is on is pretty nice as well. I find that as long as I leave a half a pot of coffee in the carafe when I go to work in the morning, it is still pretty warm when I get home almost 10 hours later. So there is no detriment to not having a burner on the machine. 2 hours after I brew, the coffee will still burn my tongue. Overall it's a good buy, although you may have to experiment a little if you're used to a drip coffee maker. The flexibility of making espresso type drinks and multiple cup size options make this a great buy to replace an old drip style coffee maker.

    Excellent Machine

    This machine is fantastic! I went from a KEURIG to this machine. First, with this machine you can make 1 cup of coffee in the same amount of time as a Keurig. The difference in taste is astounding. Keurig tastes like weak coffee compared to Keurig. Second, the coffee is always blazing hot after you first make it. The stainless steel carafe keeps it hot for several hours. Its still warm after 6 hours. It makes the coffee rather fast. A full carafe makes about 4-5 cups of coffee. It only about 4 minutes to fill the carafe again. The frother is a standalone glass hand pump action device with good results. I've read the reviews. Maybe I have an updated version, because I don't see the steam or hear any loud noise coming from my machine. Unfortunately, as of yet I have not tried some of the other features like ice coffee so can't report on it. People have also complained about the grains and prefer the paper filter. I see no problem until the very end of the pot. If you need your coffee to be good to the very last drop, the paper preferred reviews would be the way to go. Otherwise, stick with the convenient gold metal filter that comes with the unit. I got this machine on sale and would say its a great buy. The temperature and taste of the coffee is an A rating by me. It would of been nice to have a cord twice the length of the one it has. So it has to be within a foot of an outlet. It would of been nice to have some place to secure the scooper on the back of the device. Those two issues are minor.

    We have went back and forth with a Keurig two times now. Both times they have broken quickly and honestly the coffee tastes horrible. After watching the informercials and reading loads of reviews we decided to give the Ninja Coffee Bar a shot. Using fresh ground Starbucks House blend, (espresso ground) I just made a coffee shop worthy cappuccino! It's strong but smooth, and the frother works perfectly. It came with a travel mug, coffee scoop, frother and a great recipe book for making at home coffee shop style drinks. It takes a bit longer to brew, around 4 minutes start to finish for a single cup, but the rich smooth flavor is worth the wait. This makes such good coffee!! We've had good luck with our other Ninja items and I hope this lasts us for years. It looks terrific on our coffee bar, takes up less space than the Keurig and kcup drawer, is loads better for the environment without all those plastic cups, and will be more economical down the road. I highly recommend the Ninja Coffee Bar for all coffee lovers!

    Best Home brewed Coffee I've Had!

    Wev'e been searching for a new coffee maker and didn't want to buy those with pods as they tend to be very costly in the long run. I read the reviews on the Ninja products specifically the "coffee bars". Decided to purchase this during the Bk friday sale and got in on the great buy! After brewing coffee for a week now wev'e had to adjust the amount to get the right strength. Several options to choose from on the coffee "bar" so not your mother's "ole coffee maker". As I've read in some reviews you get the true taste & flavor of the coffee which is correct! You will need to adjust and test what works best for you when brewing. You'll likely find you may not need as much coffee when brewing with this one. Our family loves the coffee and the included frother is a hit. However one thing I disliked about it was the slide out coffee filter bin seemed not as sturdy as I would have expected.. hence my rating. Overall thought it's a good coffee maker and excellent buy at the sale price.

    Great Sounding Product-Don't Buy!

    I was not satisfied with the coffee out of my Kuerig. I researched heavily single cup options. The Ninja seems like a great option in that you can do single cup and also a pot of coffee. Also, I like strong coffee and you can choose the strength of your coffee. When it arrived I did everything it said to do in the instructions to prepare for the first cup...clean cycle with cleaning solution, etc. I also followed up with multiple clean cycles of just water. The first cup had an odd flavor...and I buy good coffee, not the cheap stuff. This continued but seemed to dissipate some in time. I made no more than 10 cups of coffee before the clean cycle light came on. I ran another clean cycle with a cleaning solution. The light was still on. I ran a second cycle with cleaning solution and the light was still on. I called Ninja...that was fun. First, the person barely spoke English. Second, he offered to send me a replacement for free...except I have to pay shipping...federal express. Keep in mind the unit is about 30 days old. He then told me it would be cheaper to try and exchange where I bought it. So, in summary, the coffee has a funny taste, the clean cycle light will not go off, the call center barely speaks English and you have to pay shipping on a replacement.

    I wanted a coffee maker that was easier to use than my current drip coffee maker. I also wanted one with a carafe as I noticed coffee makers with carafes, seem to keep the coffee hotter for a longer period of time. I am very pleased with this purchase as it allows me to vary the flavour of the coffee depending on the setting. with the removable water chamber it allows me to to fill it without making a mess as I would have when having to pour water into a built in chamber like my older coffee maker did. It also come with a wire mesh coffee filter, but I found that I still use a paper filter as the wire mesh filter will still allow for fine coffee grounds to seep into the carafe. It also comes with a milk frother, which is a plus though I don't really get into that sort of thing. But might come in handy when making hot cocoa. I had used it for a few weeks before writing this review and so far I am very satisfied with it. Though it is more than I'd normally spend for a coffee maker as I do not drink coffee every day, I was able to get this while on sale for less than $100 and I'm glad I took the plunge.

    Best coffee maker I've owned. I had a Keurig machine and got sick of the limited coffee selection, the cost of the pods and the thought of littering landfills with those little cups, Pro: Great coffee 4 settings for coffee sizes Removable water tank 4 coffee brewing choices - Classic, Rich, Over Ice and Specialty for concentrated coffee Clean, high tech appearance Easy to clean, no paper filters required - gold filter cone included Brewing cone assembly is removable for cleaning Stainless carafe Travel mug included Flip down tray to hold smaller cups closer to the brewer head Timer for next day hands free brewing Coffee is hot and stays hot if you pre heat the carafe with hot water Use any coffee you want, no limits like the Keurig machines Quiet operation - my Keurig machine sounded like a sump pump Con: The carafe is a little on the small side at 40 ounces. OK for two people

    Excellent no frills coffee brewing machine

    I grew weary of Keurig machines. The limited choice, cost ot the pods and the environmental consequences of millions of little plastic K cups in landfills forever troubled me so i went "old school". That means I buy bulk, whole bean coffee and grind them myself. and brew fresh. This machine does NOT grind beans, you will need a separate grinder (Capresso) or buy pre-ground coffee to brew. The Ninja machine allows for great brewing flexibility in terms of serving size (small, cup, travel cup, half pot, full pot) and two brew choices. The machine is fast, easy to operate, simple to clean and it brews hot , fresh coffee with nothing left but biodegradable coffee grounds, not plastic cups. It's a little more work than a Keurig machine but the coffee is better and the variety of coffee beans is much broader than K-cups. The stainless carafe is unbreakable, easy to clean and well made. The gold metal filter works well and you can use Melitta paper filters if you want. Bottom line is that the coffee is better and landfills trash is reduced..
