DIY Coffee Bar with the Ninja Coffee Bar System
Mom's everywhere deserve something special for Mother's Day and if your mom is a coffee lover than she will love her own DIY Coffee Bar station in her kitchen.
Why buy Mom or someone special the Ninja Coffee Bar System?
Because the Ninja Coffee Bar System is the perfect coffee maker that will fit any coffee lovers needs.
You can brew a delicious cup of coffee or brew coffee house style drinks at home.
The Ninja's unique coffee brewing technology brews the best tasting smoothest cup of coffee at home with just the push of a finger.
I bought my mother in law the Ninja Coffee Bar System for Christmas because for months she had been telling me how much she wanted one.
She and I are both big coffee lovers.
While she likes to brew a half or full carafe of coffee I love the convenience of brewing my favorite coffee one cup at a time.
The Ninja Coffee Bar System lets you do both.
An added bonus is that you don't have to deal with disposing of all those plastic single-serving coffee pods because with the Ninja Coffee Bar System you can brew a single cup of coffee or a carafe full of coffee without them.
With the Ninja Coffee Bar System, you use your favorite ground coffee or you can grind fresh coffee beans and use the built-in reusable coffee filter.
If you don't want to mess with dumping and rinsing the built-in coffee filter you can use paper coffee filters.
The built-in Ninja Smart Scoop coffee measuring scoop snaps and attaches to the side of the Ninja Coffee Bar System making it easy to always find and perfectly measure the correct amount of coffee grounds for each type of built-in coffee brew for a cup or carafe of your favorite coffee.
Ninja Coffee Bar System Review
I love everything about the Ninja Coffee Bar System. Ninja Coffee Bar System options I love the most.
- The convenient built-in Ninja Smart Scoop coffee measuring scoop is attached to the side of the Ninja coffee brewer so you can scoop the correct amount of coffee grounds no matter what size cup or carafe of coffee you are brewing.
- A built-in milk frother that allows you to froth hot or cold milk or even your favorite flavored coffee creamers. Yes, you can froth coffee creamers with the Ninja Coffee Bar frother.
- Brew a half carafe or full carafe with the glass coffee carafe that comes with the Ninja Coffee Bar System.
- The removable water reservoir makes it easy to fill the coffee brewer reservoir at the sink.
- Brew your favorite hot or cold coffee drinks.
- Turn the power on and it is ready to brew. Or you can wait for it to beep letting you know that the coffee brewer has preheated. Waiting until the brewer has preheated will give you a hotter cup of coffee.
Ninja Coffee Bar System hot or cold milk frother
Making a frothy cup of specialty coffee at home is easy with the built-in milk frother of the Ninja Coffee Bar System.
This is one of my favorite parts of the Ninja Coffee Bar System.
Not only can you froth hot or cold milk at home for coffee house style drinks but you can also froth your favorite flavored coffee creamers. Awesome!
I was doing the happy dance while brewing a cup of coffee and frothing my favorite flavored coffee creamer as it brewed.
In the picture above you can see how well the Ninja Coffee Bar System built-in milk frother works.
In the picture on the left you can see about 4 ounces of warm milk as I start frothing after about 30 seconds you can see how the milk has doubled in volume.
How to make a coffee bar at home
You can set up your DIY Coffee Bar with just a coffee maker, your favorite coffee, and some cute coffee mugs on the kitchen counter.
Or you can go all out and set up a cute DIY Coffee Bar that is ready to serve and brew coffee house style coffee drinks at home with a great coffee brewing system like the Ninja Coffee Bar System.
If you have enough room you can turn an old cabinet into a coffee bar station and decorate that area of your kitchen with fun coffee signs and coffee themed decorations, along with all the little extras like flavored coffee syrups, flavored coffee creamers and individually packaged cookies for when you want a little sweet treat with your coffee.
I have been wanting to set up my own coffee bar station at home for over a year now.
Tucked away in a storage unit I had the perfect cabinet to turn into a kitchen coffee bar station.
All I had to do was get it to the house, clean it up a bit and paint it. I finally had the chance to pull it all together.
I'll share my DIY coffee bar station makeover in another post soon.

I just read back and saw that you did DIY it! I missed that the first time. Did you use a stencil? And do you remember where the cabinet was from originally?
Hello! I absolutely LOVE your table that the coffee bar is on! I’m sure it’s one of a kind, but if not please tell me where it’s from! Or if you DIY’d it, what you used! Also, what kind of table did you look for when creating this? I am hoping to set up my own coffee bar ? but I’m stuck on whether I should be searching for a ‘nightstand’ size or a ‘small table’... any tips would be helpful!
I have no idea where the cabinet I used came from. It originally belonged to my son inlaws parents and they gave it to him. My daughter then gave it to me. I did use stencils on the front of the doors. If I remember correctly I bought them at Joann's. Be sure and send me a picture if you get around to DIY'ing your own coffee bar. I love mine. For the Christmas holidays, I transformed it into a Hot Cocoa Bar for my grandchildren. They loved it.
