the first carafe in my ninja dualbrew pro cfp301

A couple months ago I posted a first review of my Ninja Dualbrew Pro CFP301 K-Cup-compatible brewer.

This morning I made my first carafe of coffee with it.

First the pros:

  • very easy to brew a pot of coffee
  • it’s easy to pop the K-Cup holder out and swap to crafe mode
  • even without using the “keep warm” feature, coffee stays warm-to-hot in the carafe for a long time
  • cleanup is a breeze

Now for the con:

If you follow the directions for how much coffee to use to brew (1-2 tablespoons per 6oz of water) … it comes little “thick” (I used a little over 9 T of Folger’s – should have gone for about 1/5-1/4 less).

The strength of the brew was fine, but it’s not as smooth as I think coffee is supposed to be.
