We have needed a new coffee pot for awhile but did not want to buy another Keurig. We just got tired of the K-cups and the machines just don't seem to last for the price you. After careful consideration, we decided to buy a Ninja Coffee Bar. Can I just tell you that we absolutely love it! It was a little pricey, but we combined coupons with sales and even got a $20 rebate, but it was so worth the money. The coffee tastes great. We can brew a whole pot, a half a pot, or a single cup, so there's little waste. And, if you love specialty drinks, you really can make them at home for a whole lot less than going to the coffee store. I personally love to get Flat Whites from Starbucks. Seriously, I make them at home now and they taste exactly the same. I highly recommend this machine!
