Best Overall: Ninja Coffee Bar Glass Carafe System
When everyone in the family likes different styles of coffee, or for those days when you want something different from the usual, this machine is the next best thing to a coffee shop. It can make single-serve cups of coffee or fill the included glass carafe. The built-in frother transforms hot or cold milk into a silky smooth froth in just a few seconds for blended or layered drinks.
This works without pods, so you can choose your favorite coffee, then set the machine for classic, rich, over-ice, café forte and specialty brews. The thermal extraction technology gets optimum flavor from the coffee, whether you’re making a basic cup or a fancy blended drink.
While this doesn’t provide the pressure of a traditional espresso machine, you can use espresso beans and easily create a wide variety of coffees with one simple-to-use machine.
