Ninja DualBrew Pro Specialty Coffee System Review: 2 Amazing Brews in 1

Around here, we love Ninja coffee systems, and the Ninja DualBrew Pro is no exception. This is a coffee maker that can do it all. With its independent hot water system and multiple individual cup sizes, this machine is perfect for those who want a cup of coffee (or two) without having to wait for a full pot to brew. Not to mention, the built-in frother creates silky smooth froth for all your favorite coffee drinks.

I bought my first Ninja coffee bar a few years ago, and I have to say, I’m still impressed. I drink hot coffee, and my wife lives on iced coffee. The versatility of this machine is what sold me. You can literally make anything from iced coffee to lattes (my favorite). I even convinced most of my extended family to buy their own. This machine is that good.

Now, let’s dive into our Ninja DualBrew Pro Specialty Coffee System Review and see what this coffee maker is all about.


Ninja DualBrew Pro Specialty Coffee System Overview

The Ninja DualBrew coffee system is the perfect machine for busy families or offices who want to enjoy a great cup of coffee without any hassle. With its independent hot water system, built-in frother, and fold-away drip tray, the Ninja dual coffee maker is perfect for those on the go. Additionally, the dishwasher-safe parts make it easy to clean, even if you’re short on time.

You can use the control knob to select the brew size and style that you want. The Ninja DualBrew also features a Specialty Brew Option that brews a super-rich coffee concentrate, perfect for those who enjoy a cup of coffee similar to espresso. With the built-in frother, you can create silky smooth milk froth for all your favorite coffee drinks.

The Ninja DualBrew comes with a 60-oz. removable water reservoir that can be positioned on the side or rear of the machine to fit your space. Plus, it’s removable for easy refilling and dishwasher safe. If you’re like me, you can’t wait for that first cup of coffee in the morning. But sometimes, I just can’t wait the extra few minutes for a full pot. That’s where the coffee drip-stop feature comes in handy. This allows you to pause the brewing process so you can sneak a cup before the cycle is complete.

The Ninja DualBrew also features a Keep Warm Function that keeps your coffee hot and fresh for up to 2 hours. So whether you’re hosting a party or just want to enjoy a cup at your leisure, your coffee will be ready when you are. Set up your coffee the night before and wake up to the smell of fresh-brewed coffee with the Delay Brew Timer. Simply select the brew time you want, and the drip coffee system will work its magic while you sleep.

Ninja DualBrew Pro Specialty Coffee System Review

Ninja Pod Adapter

Instead of having two separate brewing areas, the Ninja has a single brewing area that can be used with either coffee pods or your favorite coffee grounds. To brew a K-cup coffee pod, simply attach the pod adapter, and the pods coffee system is ready. The Ninja coffee pod adapter uses three needles to puncture each pod. The multiple puncture points ensure even saturation and full extraction of all the coffee goodness.

4 Brew Styles

The Ninja DualBrew Pro System offers four different brew styles to choose from – Classic, Rich, Over Ice, or Specialty brews. Whether you’re in the mood for a traditional cup of coffee or something more unique like a rich coffee concentrate, this machine has you covered. You can also use the built-in frother to create silky smooth froth for all your favorite coffee drinks (more on that later).

The Classic brew style is perfect for those who enjoy a traditional cup of coffee. This setting allows you to brew your ground coffee or coffee pods using the standard 6, 8, 10, or 12 oz. sizes, and with precise temperature control, you can enjoy a cup of coffee that’s perfectly flavorful every time.

The Over Ice brew style is perfect for those who enjoy a refreshing cold cup of coffee on a hot day. So if you’re looking for a cool and tasty way to beat the heat, the Ninja DualBrew Pro System is the perfect solution.

The Rich brew style is perfect for those who enjoy a strong and flavorful cup of coffee. This setting allows you to brew a bolder cup of coffee, especially great for those of us who like to add cream and sugar.

The Specialty brew style is perfect for those who enjoy a cup of coffee with beautiful latte art. This setting allows you to brew a super-rich coffee concentrate that you can use to create delicious lattes, cappuccinos, and other coffeehouse-style drinks.

Built-in, fold-away frother

The Ninja DualBrew Pro System comes with a built-in frother that turns hot or cold milk/milk alternatives into a silky smooth froth for all your favorite coffee drinks. It’s also removable for easy cleaning. It’s easy to use, too. Simply place the frothing pitcher under the frother and let the machine do the work. You’ll have steaming hot milk for lattes, cappuccinos, and more in no time at all.

Multi-Position Water Reservoir

The Ninja DualBrew Pro System features a 60 oz. water reservoir that can be positioned on the side or rear of the machine to fit your space. Plus, it’s removable for easy refilling. And if you need hot water for instant soups, oatmeal, or hot chocolate, the Ninja DualBrew Pro System has you covered with its separate hot water dispenser.

Precise temperature control for ultra-flavorful coffee

The Thermal Flavor Extraction Duo is a specialized brewing system. It ensures that your coffee grounds or pods are evenly saturated and heated to the optimal temperature for extracting maximum flavor.

An extra-large showerhead evenly saturates the coffee grounds for consistent flavor extraction, while the TruNeedles punctures pods in multiple spots to ensure even saturation of K-Cups.

The brew cycles are calibrated for every brew size and style, using a pattern of brewing and pausing that is optimized for extracting maximum flavor. No longer will your large cup of coffee be watered down!

I've been drinking coffee my entire life, from a little boy stealing coffee off the counter to an adult (who still steals his wife's coffee occasionally). I'm passionate about exploring the world of coffee and finding another great roast to experience.
