Ninja DualBrew’s Cup Size Guide – How Many Ounces in Each Brew Size

ninja dualbrew cup size chart

If there’s one thing Ninja coffee makers in general, and DualBrew and DualBrew Pro specifically, are known for, it’s the versatility of the serving sizes. From a single cup to a full 12-cup carafe and everything in between.

The problem is, on the listings of these brewers, you’ll only see the brew sizes by name and not the amount in ounces. So in this post, I’ll list the exact brew size and how many ounces it is.

Note: the amount of each serving size actually slightly changes when you change the brew style.

Why Rich Brew Produces Less Coffee than Classic Brew

When you use Rich brew setting, the machine uses less water to brew the coffee in order to produce a stronger cup of coffee. Which is why there’s about two ounce difference between the two brew styles.

You can use a tablespoon or the included scoop to measure the coffee.

Specialty Brew Size and Coffee Measurement

Specialty brew style is Ninja’s alternative to espresso. Using this setting, you can only brew 4 oz of coffee concentrate. As for the amount of coffee grounds you need for this one, it’s a whooping 4-scoop or spoon measurement. Yup, that’s a lot of coffee for a 4oz amount, but that’s how you get it to be concentrated.
