It’s no secret that we here at Kitchn love coffee. And we love a bargain. So when the two come together? Bliss! That’s why we were excited to see the Ninja Coffee Bar System included among the huge selection in Walmart’s daily holiday deals.

We’re already big fans of the more souped-up Ninja Hot & Cold Brew model, but this machine does pretty much everything but make cold brew. In fact, it’s like having your own personal barista (but much faster and with less attitude). For starters, you can choose from a variety of brews, including Classic, Rich, and Over Ice, as well as the bold Cafe Forte for those who like their coffee strong, and Specialty Brew, a coffee concentrate that is ideal for making fancier drinks like lattes and cappuccinos. The Ninja Coffee Bar System also comes with a built-in frother, so you won’t need any extra equipment to take your drink to the next level.

While most cafes and shops offer only three serving sizes, this countertop dynamo gives you six: single cup, XL cup, travel mug, XL multi-serve, half carafe, or full carafe. So it’s great if you’re taking your Joe on the go or making a carafe for company. Single servings require no pods, so you can have your favorite coffee every time and drink it from a cup that doesn’t have your name misspelled. If you opt to make a full pot, the stainless steel carafe will keep coffee hot for two hours. Your local barista won’t do that for you!

Reviewers rave about how versatile the machine is, and many love that it’s easy to use. “Everything is spelled out,” noted one happy customer. “From water levels to coffee grounds needed for special drinks and sizes.” Another reviewer agreed, adding that cleanup couldn’t be simpler. “The dials are easy to understand and use. The water tank detaches easily to fill and clean. The coffee ground container also is easy to clean and does not need a filter.” Sounds good to us!

Many of the items in Walmart’s holiday deals are selling out fast, so if you’re planning to upgrade your current coffee maker or looking for a gift for the coffee-lover in your life, you better act fast.
