NINJA's new COFFEE BAR...Review
Even if you don't have that jingle etched in memory cells (from TV ads-for Ninja Blender/Juicer)...Ninja's inventive way with kitchen gadgets (AUTO-IQ™)-has given birth to a new counter top staple-aimed at perfecting the coffee-based drinks that are so popular....into a one touch easy necessity.
A perfect gift for a coffee drinker...why the NINJA Coffee Bar differs from other coffee machines on the market-we think-is the turn the dial idiot-proof options-allowing for coffee strength differences and also the one push-size appropriate options -including an iced coffee one. Simplifies everything.
--- If one needs a bold sip-NINJA COFFEE BAR delivers, as promised.

|first thing out...|
|the water reservoir-is separate---makes filling easier than other coffee machines where it's an embedded one piece deal. The amounts for full, half pots, one cup and special coffee drink-iced coffee is clearly marked|
