This post is brought to you by Ninja Coffee Bar and I received the product at no cost. All opinions are my own.
There’s no need to go to the coffee shop when you can make your own deliciously cozy Pumpkin Spice Latte at home in just minutes.
I don’t know if you all know this, but I LOVE coffee. I cannot start my day without at least one large steaming mug of good strong coffee <exits her office to head to the kitchen to make second large mug of coffee>. So imagine my delight when I was given the opportunity to try out the new Ninja Coffee Bar.
The Ninja Coffee Bar is such a versatile appliance. It has multiple brew settings and automatically controls the amount of water for each setting to create the perfect coffee drink.
The classic brew and rich brew will give you a traditional cup of coffee at the perfect strength. If you like iced coffee, select the over ice brew and you’ll get a flavorful drink that’s not at all watered down. For espresso-type drinks choose the the specialty brew and whip up your favorite drink.
You can also easily select just the right amount of coffee, whether you want just one cup, a travel mug to go, half a carafe or a full carafe. It’s all there at just the turn of a dial. I also really love that it has a water reservoir, so you can make several cups of coffee before having to refill it.
Included with the Ninja Coffee Bar is a recipe book with every coffee drink imaginable as well as some sweet treats to enjoy with your coffee. I’ve tried a number of the drinks and they’re the same quality you’ll find at your favorite coffeehouse, for a fraction of the cost.
You can easily make cappuccinos, lattes and one of my favorites, the americano. You get coffeehouse quality in the comfort of your own home, anytime a craving strikes.
The recipe book even has some cocktail recipes. I really like the cafe’ martini, it’s fun to make if you’re entertaining and is a perfect after dinner drink. It’s like dessert in a glass.
I mentioned I really like an americano, but this pumpkin spice latte may be my new favorite. Like all of the drinks I’ve tried, it’s so easy to make and it tastes amazing.
