NINJA BREWS

Specialty and Cafe Forte brews deliver a specific amount of concentrated coffee for the perfect brew every time. Specialty delivers approximately 4 oz. and Cafe Forte delivers approximately 8 oz.

SPECIALTY OR CAFE FORTE BREW

The Specialty Brew produces a strong coffee concentrate perfect for an iced blended coffee drink or milk-based specialty drink.

Cafe Forte has a deep, full-bodied, and complex flavor that is rich and drinkable. It tastes great black—no milk or sweeteners needed. Refer to the Inspiration Guide for recipes.

  1. After filling the water reservoir and adding ground coffee to the filter, be sure that the Drip Stop is open and that the reservoir, basket and filter are securely in place.
    Note: If brewing an iced blended drink, fill the desired vessel with the amount of ice recommended in the recipe before brewing.
