This Ninja Coffee Bar has me breaking up with my French press!
Sofia Vergara eat your heart out, chica! Now I have a Ninja Coffee Bar, too! Na na na na na! ????
Just because I don’t have Sofia Vergara’s long gorgeous locks, wrinkle free skin, body that doesn’t quit and that sexy accent, doesn’t mean I can’t be just as good a spokesperson! Right?
I mean, she’s only four years younger than me and for real, it’s a crime to look THAT GOOD! Lordy! I admit I am more than a little jealous of her. Joe Maganiello alone would make even this girl-lover swoon, and then there’s her gig as spokesperson with Ninja Kitchen. My Jelly-ness is only tempered by the fact that she’s impossible not to LOVE LOVE LOVE! Good job on that one Ninja Kitchen! Thanks to her, every man woman and probably teenage boy is gonna want one of these things. You don’t even need my review! But I appreciate the coffee maker just the same!
O.K., so now that I’ve got the stalker in me under control, let’s talk coffee.
Ninja Kitchen sent me their new Ninja Coffee Bar to test out, and I am so darn excited about this thing I can hardly stand it! Y’all know me well enough by now to know that I’m not gonna lie to you about something like this. Doesn’t matter if Ninja Kitchen paid me a million dollars for this review (which they absolutely did not – I wish), I’d still tell you the truth.

I haven’t owned an electric coffee maker since 2001. Not kidding. When I got divorced from my then husband, I became the only person in my household to drink coffee, so I started using a French press. If you’ve never had French coffee you’re missing out. What I loved about my french press was that it makes coffee taste very rich and smooth and rounds out any bitterness and it’s easy to clean and store and doesn’t take up space on my counter.
Back in the day I was a pot a day kind of coffee girl. I drank coffee morning, noon and night. Today I’m about a two cup a day girl but I’m still the only member of my household to drink coffee—unless you count when we go to the Mango Cafe in Mexico, where Dr. Double Portions indulges in THE most amazing Mexican coffee with cinnamon and lots of Mexican brown sugar—We don’t let her have caffeine too often cuz’ she’s already like the Energizer bunny on crack without it. I will say that the Ninja Coffee Bar can make a mean Mexican Cafe with just a little cinnamon, vanilla, sweetener and milk! YUM!
In the mid 2000s I had a Dr. that suggest that I go coffee cold turkey and switch to green and white tea to help combat some hormone issues (read: peri-menopause). So I did. And for many years, I didn’t drink coffee at all. I did all this only to find out that same Dr. went back to coffee herself just two months later! Head Slap.
But when I do something, I do it with gusto! In fact, it was that same aforementioned Mango Cafe that brought me back into the world of coffee. This is important because I started bringing their ground coffee (cafe molida) home from Mexico. Which brings me to the thing I love most about the Ninja Coffee Bar: You can use your own coffee! No pods to mess with and yet you can still make just one cup easily and you can make it plain or fancy it up.
Getting me to switch from my every day French press back to a coffee maker was going to be a tall order. But, I was open because I DO WORK FOR FOOD, BOOZE & KITCHEN GADGETS as well as airfare, accommodations and cold hard cash; but also because the French press leaves a lot of sludge in the last cup which I hate and if I were really being honest, the coffee gets cold too fast. I have NONE of these issues with the Ninja Coffee Bar, and in fact it’s made me raise my coffee standards in the short time I’ve had it—If I thought I was a coffee snob before now, forgettaboutit—I’m not sure I can live without a Ninja Coffee Bar in my kitchen!
French press, “I’m breaking up with you!”
I also admit to having a coffee maker in my condo in Mexico, but in my defense, it was there when I got there. I like it fine and sometimes more than fine, but I HATE having to pollute the environment with plastic pods—because recycling isn’t a big thing south of the border just yet.
I much prefer this Ninja because you know my favorite color is green and this is a GREEN machine that makes the environment happy!
