Braun MultiServe vs. Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker, What’s The Difference?

Ninja Specialty Fold Away Frother CM401 Coffee Maker

If you’re familiar with Ninja’s popular Specialty Coffee Maker (also known as Ninja Coffee Bar System), you’ve probably noticed by now how similar it is to Braun’s MultiServe.

The Ninja System is also a pod-free system that offer multiple sizes from single cup up to a full 10-cup carafe. Brewing programs include: Classic, Rich, Over Ice and Specialty. So far, they’re pretty much alike… but there’s one difference:

Ninja CM401 Specialty 10-Cup Coffee Maker, with 4 Brew Styles for Ground Coffee, Built-in Water Reservoir, Fold-Away Frother & Glass Carafe, Black
  • Note: 1)Too coarse a grind, too little coffee, or insufficiently tamping the grounds before brewing can all lead to inadequate pressure for a proper brew. 2)It is important to note that the amount of espresso extracted will vary depending on the grind size and amount and reprogramming may be needed when the size and amount are adjusted.Please refer to user guide or user manual or user guide (provided below in PDF) before first use
  • 4 BREW STYLES: Select from one of the four, versatile brew styles: Classic, Rich, Over Ice, or Specialty Brew.
  • SPECIALTY BREWS: Brew a super-rich coffee concentrate that you can use to create delicious lattes, macchiatos, cappuccinos, and other coffeehouse-style drinks.
  • MAKE ICED COFFEE: Brew fresh over ice for flavorful iced coffee that's never watered down.
  • 6 BREW SIZES: Brew anything from a single cup or travel size to a half or full carafe in your coffee maker. 6 sizes include Cup, XL Cup, Travel Mug, Multi-Serve Travel Mug, Half Carafe & Full Carafe.

The Ninja Coffee Bar has a built-in milk frother that allows you to create delicious milk froth for making coffee drinks like Cappuccino or Latte. But does the Ninja coffee maker make espresso? No, it doesn’t. But it makes something close enough. The ‘Specialty’ program creates a 4 oz coffee concentrate to replace espresso for specialty coffee drinks. This gives you the choice to make more coffee recipes than Braun’s MultiServe, which does not have a milk frother or a coffee concentrate setting.

The Ninja Coffee Bar is also available with an option of glass or thermal carafe, which (as of now) the Braun MultiServe doesn’t have.
