I'm a coffee-hound. For most of my life. I was drinking espresso in New York's Little Italy when I was 6 years old. So perhaps it's no surprise that I got all excited when I first saw a commercial on TV a month or so ago for something called the Ninja Coffee Bar. It was being advertised by Sofia Vergara. But that wasn't the primary reason I was excited. This machine claimed to be able to make not only coffee but specialty drinks such as espresso, cappucino, lattes, iced drinks ... it was a barista in a box! I jumped on the 'Net to check this modern marvel out and watched hours of videos, but the more I watched the quicker my excitement waned. Yes, it made 4 different sizes of drinks - and most of the time you had to purchase the optional Ninja cups and mugs to fit. Yes, it made specialty drinks - often with the help of the optional Ninja Milk Frother. And it didn't just magically make these drinks - YOU still had to do all the work. The machine just supplies the coffee. Kind of a let-down, especially at an average price of $180. Have you seen this machine? What do you think?
