Does the frother produce hot and cold froth? How do I produce the froth?
Our integrated frother is capable of transforming hot or cold milk into a silky microfoam. For hot froth, the milk will need to either be preheated in the microwave for 45 to 60 seconds or simmered on a stovetop. Cold froth is made with cold milk and is an excellent addition to iced lattes or frozen blended drinks.

To froth, pour milk into cup until it is about one-third full. (Use more or less milk depending on your preference.) For hot froth, microwave for 45 to 60 seconds. Move the frother into the ready position by swinging the arm toward the front. Hold the cup under the frother and submerge the whisk just below the surface of the milk. This allows air to fold into the milk, for the frothiest results. Press and hold the frothing button for 30 to 45 seconds. You can easily remove the frother whisk by twisting it clockwise. To avoid spills, keep your cup below the whisk as you carry it to your sink or dishwasher for cleaning.

DO NOT reach across top of brewer to froth during brewing. Steam is released from the vent on top of brewer and can result in a steam burn.

Can I froth non-dairy milk, like soy milk or almond milk?
Yes. While we recommend dairy milk for best performance, you can froth both almond milk and soy milk. For better results, use soy milk heated.

How long do I need to froth my milk?
Hold the cup under the frother and submerge the whisk just below the surface of the milk. Press and hold the frothing button for 30 to 45 seconds.

For hot froth, microwave the milk for 45-60 seconds in a microwavable cup before frothing, then follow the directions above.

Can I brew tea in this machine?
We do not recommend brewing tea in the Ninja Coffee Bar®. After brewing coffee, there will be coffee oils and flavors that will be left in the brew basket which may effect the flavor of the tea.

Do I need to use a paper filter with the permanent filter?
No, the paper filter and permanent filter should not be used together. Please use either a paper filter or the permanent filter when brewing coffee.

Using a permanent filter in conjunction with a paper filter may result in water and/or coffee clogging and backing up in the filter basket.

How do I clean my frother whisk?
To avoid drips and spills, hold your cup below the whisk while you carry it to your sink or dishwasher for easy cleaning. The frother whisk is top-rack dishwasher safe.
We recommend that you either hand wash the whisk or place it on the top rack of your dishwasher. We do not recommend placing soapy water in your cup to clean the frother while still attached.

How do I set up my built-in frother whisk? How do I take it off?
To set up your frother, swing the frother arm from the back of the machine to the front until it is locked into place. Place the frother whisk onto the integrated frother by pushing up the whisk and rotating it counterclockwise. There are also lock icons on the frother whisk to indicate which way to turn the frother whisk to lock it in.

To remove the frother whisk, twist clockwise and pull down.

There is water left in the reservoir.
After a brew, you may notice leftover water in your reservoir after filling to the minimum fill line of the size selected. The water reservoir markings are minimum fill lines that indicate if there is enough water for the proper brew size in the reservoir, but all brew styles use different amounts of water to create the proper flavor and concentration. Auto-iQ One-Touch Intelligence will only use the water needed for the brew size and style selected. Please note that the system is designed to always leave some water remaining in the reservoir after a brew. This to protect the boiler from boiling dry, and helps extend the life of your machine.

Cafe Forte is exclusive to the Ninja Coffee Bar® System. Cafe Forte has a deep, complex flavor that brings out the nuances of your coffee for a full-bodied gourmet experience. It tastes great black—no milk or sweeteners needed. You will enjoy Cafe Forte if you favor strong, robust coffee.

What is the best milk to use for frothing?

My unit beeps, but the brew cycle will not start.
There are a few reasons why the unit will beep, but a brew will not start:
  • Ensure the display is illimunated. If there are no lights illuminated, it means the machine is not getting power. Try a different outlet.
  • Check the Drip Stop, and make sure it is set to the open position (denoted by the image of a water droplet).
  • Ensure the brew basket is properly inserted and aligned.
  • Ensure there is water in the reservoir. If there is no water, and the boiler is too hot, the unit will beep and not start the brew in order to protect the boiler from overheating.
  • If the boiler has become scaled from excessive hard water usage without cleaning and got too hot, the unit will beep and not start the brew in order to protect the boiler from overheating. Please run a Clean cycle, following the instructions in the Owner's Guide or under the FAQ titled "How to clean and descale your Ninja Coffee Bar®."

    What is Thermal Flavor Extraction®?
    Many variables go into brewing the perfect cup of coffee. Three of those variables—temperature, pre-infusion, and saturation—are difficult to manage on your own. Our Thermal Flavor Extraction® Technology automatically controls them for you.

    How It Works:
    Temperature: Water is heated to the ideal temperature for coffee.
    Pre-Infusion: Grounds are evenly saturated, then given time to bloom.
    Saturation: Grounds are saturated again for even and consistent extraction.
