    Llego 4 dias antes de la fecha estimada de entrega, llego impecable, sin nungun golpe y quiero compartir mis observaciones de la cafetera.
    1. Es aun mas bonita fuera de la caja.
    2. En comentarios decian que tardaba mucho en preparra el cafe y sinseramente no creo que sea cierto, lo prepara en un buen tiempo.
    3. La jarra es de vidrio, pero el contenerdor de agua es de plastico (es el unico pero que le puse)
    4. Algo que nadie ha mencionado, la cafetera ES PROGRAMABLE asi que pueden tener su cafe por la mañana sin problema.
    5.Solo mantiene caliente el cafe si es con la jarra.

    Me gusto muchisimo, yo la compre con descuento, por lo que me salio super barata, la recomiendo mucho es una muy buena opcion.

    I like the ninja coffee maker. It looks great on the counter. I love that you can fold up the cup shelf and the frother for a cleaner look. The coffee has, so far, been consistently good. The reusable filter is great. I love that it can work for different sized mugs, and even for travel mugs without brewing an entire pot – or even a half a pot which is another great feature I love.

    It doesn’t keep the water hot, so it takes more time to brew than my previous 1 cup brewer, I did get spoiled with and miss having instant coffee. But it is still faster than the old school coffee pots from the 90s. And SO MUCH QUIETER! Love that.

    The water level is easy to see, which is good because it will go through a brew cycle without water. The craffe is hard to hand wash, I don’t own a dish washer.

    We have had one for 2-3 years. My husband loves it. Bought this one for my sister in law as a house warming gift since she loved it as well when we lived together

    I’ve been using this Ninja coffee maker for a couple months now, have not tried all its features yet, but the ones I’ve tried are excellent. I love the “over ice” coffee it produces -wonderful flavor and never watered down. The rich brew is also a favorite of mine. I like that it has customized sizes so I’m not wasting coffee by making more than I want. The coffee ground scooper is very handy and I like that it attaches to the unit.
    The unit is not loud in my opinion, just the normal sounds of a coffee maker.
    I’m excited to try more of the brew styles and the frother in time.
    Overall it’s very easy to clean. The brew pot is the exception. The opening is so small I cannot even get my small hand and arm into it, so a sponge with a wand is essential to clean it by hand.
    I’m a huge fan of Ninja products, and this coffee maker is no exception!

    I can do everything with this machine and it’s easy and fun to use. I’ve made all of my favorite Starbucks drinks with way fewer calories because I can control what I use to make them. Makes specialty drinks perfectly, pot of coffee perfect, single cup, perfect. In this sleek, compact attractive device you can make any and all coffee drinks you can dream up. And it’s a fraction of the price for similar products with these capabilities.

    We were looking for a replacement for our Nespresso as the pods were getting super expensive with the amount of coffee we were drinking.

    We wanted something we could still make a single cup with.

    After looking at all the options we went with the ninja.

    No complaints at all. Fantastic machine. Easy to set up and use.

    A single cup takes about 3-4 minutes which is a little more time than a single serve pod machine but cost per cup is a lot lower!

    Highly recommend!

    I have been a grind and brew coffeemaker person for years and this coffeemaker exceeded my expectations. I can truly personalize my coffee each time. I love the ability to make half a pot or a single and the flavor is always good. It combines many popular features that regular coffee drinkers like and safe counter space at the same time!

    Producto muy elegante y fácil de utilizar. Ocupa un poco más de espacio que una cafetera convencional. Extrae muy bien el sabor del café, si quieres una jarra completa la prepara en poco más de 10 minutos.
    El espumador funciona de maravilla, lo único es que debes calentar previamente la leche. El deposito de agua al ser extraible, permite llenar la jarra más fácil y la limpieza es mejor

    The “specialty” button on this model makes a better cup of coffee than my pour over method, not exaggerating, which I’ve done for years. Read on for tips.
    I first bought the Ninja model without the “specialty” button at the store- and then got on amazon and realized that the store didnt even have this model. So I returned that and ordered this.
    While the specialty option does not taste just like an espresso, that’s fine with me because the flavor is fantastic (Gevalia Colombia!) and honestly I don’t like how compact and thick espresso tastes, to drink every morning anyway. (I returned a Nespresso before buying this. Not for me). I use just 2 “big scoops” instead of the 4 recommended by Ninja, and it is the tastiest coffee, rivaling fresh ground bean pour overs and beating most, which is a shock to me. I think if you used the 4 “big scoop” recipe it would work well for drinks with milk. I don’t drink milk in coffee but can imagine double the strength working fine for that purpose.
    I no longer have time in the morning for pour overs, unfortunately, but this machine is really making it easy on me! I am in love with just touching a button and walking away- and getting better tasting coffee! It “blooms” the grinds and has a showerhead water dispenser, so it might just work better than a pour over, in terms of consistency. This recipe is strong, though, so I often clean out the filter and just hit the “classic” button again, into a clean glass, and use most of that water to dilute my drink. The idea is that coffee is simply less bitter the less time water is running over it. So brewing a lower yield cup for shorter time, and then adding clean hot water to taste, really does rival a pour over. I do this even for a half carafe- just select a lower yield option (see the quick guide) checking that the brew coming out never becomes that pale brown color (that’s the bitter part). Just always clean out the used grinds to get some clean water. You have to play with the preset output options and amount of coffee to make a larger quantity this way. But it’s way less time to do than standing over the grinds and pouring yourself.
    My main concern is heating water inside plastic, which is why I started using the pour over method. I wish Ninja would make it BPA free and label it as such, as some other brands do. I was not able to find a machine without plastic, and the BPA free brands had some bad reviews about performance, which I don’t have time for. So Ninja, if you’re reading, please make your coffee makers BPA free as I know lots of people won’t use coffee makers due to the plastic. I just have been forced into using a machine, so, taking my chances but really enjoying the coffee.
    If you are looking at other Ninja models, or other single serve option coffee makers, this guy has it all and performs very well. You can go from a single morning cup to making a full pot, and all the milk drinks. It does it all. I read so many reviews and they are right. This is a great machine.
    I store the water tank in the fridge when Im done to prevent mold growth. There is definitely water inside the machine after a brew (same as any model) so dont let this sit unused and definitely run the cleaning cycles as recommended. I will be keeping my eye on where the water goes in.
    But the removable tank is easy to pop in the fridge. I really like that.
    Ok! Please click helpful if this helped you! I am late to work now but wanted to help you out! Have a good one and hope you buy this guy! 🙂

    Buscaba una opción para poder servir una sola taza y está cafetera fue la mejor elección. Es un poco grande el modelo pero vale la pena

    After reading the reviews, I was a bit concerned about leaking problem. I have used this multiple times a day with no problems at all. It makes great coffee and it is easy to make. The option to make ice coffee was the one thing that made me decide to buy it. My wife only drinks iced coffee and I drink hot coffee 90% fo the time. This is a great feature and works very well. I haven’t found any downside to this product. I highly recommend it!
