Ok, so before we get started I will leave a little disclaimer: I had Keurig for years. It made my cups of coffee without incident. But it stopped there. That is why I went looking for something else. My unhealthy obsession with Starbucks (which we don’t have anywhere around here) was becoming a bit of a problem.
After researching and looking around I saw the Ninja Coffee Bar (NCB) and was instantly intrigued, but maybe a little intimidated. I was used to sticking in a coffee pod pushing a button and that was it. This had so many more steps that needed to happen. Or so I thought.
I loved my Keurig at the beginning! It was super simple made a basic cup of coffee. Nothing to really complain about. But then one day I realized I was out of pods before I left the house, and on the way home realized I totally forgot to pick some up so I drove through McDonalds and got a large decaf coffee. When I got home I added my creamer to it, and realized it was the best tasting coffee I had had in a long time! All that money I was paying for K-cups proved to be totally not worth it!
Not only that, but the Keurig Carafe I bought, and the reusable pods… None of them actually worked. Because the carafe would only work with a reusable pod, but the 3 reusable pods I bought wouldn’t work with the carafe. Growing more frustrated, I really started digging around looking for something else.
Enter the NCB
All the reviews that I found about this coffee bar were incredible! So, I did was is only natural and sold my Keurig and accessories on FB, and bought myself this beauty! The day my UPS guy brought this beauty to the door I could barely contain myself from ripping it right out of his hand! It was harvest time, my husband was in the field, and I made my first latte. To be honest I was like a kid in a candy store, a puppy with a new bone, my best friend Grace in Louis Vuitton store. You obviously get the point that I was ecstatic! I made this latte in a few min, it tasted just as good as Starbucks and was SO much cheaper!
Although I knew he could care less and that he was a little busy in the combine, I didn’t care. I called him up so excited that I could make my own latte’s now. As soon as I got off the phone with him I immediately got into Pinterest and started looking up recipes. And it all went downhill from there.
Just the taste alone…
The coffee was so much stronger and had such a better taste than the Keurig. It didn’t taste watered down! The fact that I could make a 1/2 pot of coffee and drink on it throughout the day was pure heaven. Usually I go on kicks of wanting just plain coffee, or wanting to make latte’s or something not so basic.
After having this for a month I may or may not have actually talked a girl out of getting a Keurig at Bed Bath & Beyond. She was talking about getting a new one with her boyfriend, but was hesitant because of how much the pods cost. I literally couldn’t stop myself, I walked over on the other side and asked her if I could show her the Ninja Coffee Bar and went on to explain all of its greatness. Needless to say I am almost 100% sure that I changed her mind.
This cold latte I have been making has been absolutely delicious! Making 1 a day isn’t unusual. And coming into Summer it will be seriously perfect! If you go to my Instagram page under my stories I have saved on my profile I have a step by step way that I make this. If I haven’t changed your mind on getting one of these beauties, then I urge you to go onto Pinterest and look up everything you can do and make with one of these. https://instagram.com/highmaintenancefarmers
